The popularity of reality tv, as it's called, is dismaying to liberal media elitists. But they're still sick to death that fox cashed in first, behind mtv, of course. The number one ingredient in 99% of all reality tv shows is competition. We all know liberals really don't understand competition; at least in the context of market forces, they're woefully ignorant. This competition, in turn, is what drives people to display the full gamut of human interaction in an effort to manipulate , compete with, and ally with each other.. These are real people, acting for the most part, how real people act. I must say however that most of the contestants are young, beautiful, vain, selfcentered, and volatile. Well adjusted people are just not as fun to watch. Who remembers Norman from season one of MTV's real world? The libs will say: why this is no better than the base human urge to watch a train wreck and is therefore immoral. To them I say, "no, it's a fairly real unfoldment of real human emotion and drama". And then I ask"You look at train wrecks, don't you." Then they usually lie and say they don't. Also, these shows are putting writers who usually write the shit dialogue, right out of business. Oh yeah, and those are liberal writers.
