Talk Show Trash

LE 100 sect-18

These are some views on why talk shows are trash. They do nothing at

all to improve any standard of living in this country, or others also. The

shows are about ninety percent on topics that do not affect any of us, or that

the people in general have any sort of interest in. All they do is pollute

today’s already sickening society with trashy ideas so that some other idiot can

go out and try, after getting the idea from the show.

First we will start with Richard Bey, one of the self-proclaimed kings

of daytime trash. Well did today’s show have any meaning or share common

interests of the general public…not at all. Today’s topic was ?engaged men

who wanted to tell their lovers about their secret gay lives?, what trash this

was. It started off having the men come out and talk about their women and then

about their gay partners. Then in front of millions of people they brought out

the ladies on stage, to then embarrass them by talking in detail about their gay

encounter, I was almost sick. One man actually told his fiancee the he had sex

with one of her male cousins. Another told of his experiences of picking up

male gay prostitutes in the streets of New York City on many occasions. Now my

question is that is any of this even necessary for people to watch, or the

embarrassment of the individuals and those mentioned in the show.

The next trash candidate would definitely be Jerry Springer, who tries

so very hard at the end of his show to put real-life meaning to the topics of

his show in ?Springer’s thought of the Day.? Topic this time is ?pssst.. I have

a secret to tell you.? During the duration of this show topics ranged from a

forty year old women having an affair with an eighteen year old boy. After the

women told her husband and him almost breaking down crying, they then brought

the boy who was wearing one of the husbands gold chains that the wife had given

him. Next a girl admitted to her boyfriend that she had committed acts of

lesbianism with his older sister, after that how could the brother learn live

with the betrayal of his girlfriend and sister. Finally there is one of the

favorites for talk shows which is that I am already married. This women who had

been dating this man for three told him about her being married for the last ten

years.

Last but certainly not least we have Rikki Lake, and I thought that this

show which was emotional but completely tasteless in the regards of human

feelings. This show dealt with sexual lovers who wanted to confess of them

being H.I.V. positive. I mean the emotions on this show were unreal, but why do

this to a person on national television where the whole world gets to watch

their reactions. Most of the people involved were having unprotected sex so

their risk of having the disease is a reality. The excuse of most of these

people, which made me sick, was that they were scared that if they told them

before then they would lose that person forever. To even expose the unknowing

party by being told in this way is just morally wrong. But at least Rikki being

the ever so caring person that she is at least offered to have arrangements made

to have the unknowing parties tested.

So when all this is said and done where does that leave the viewers in

most of these programs? I say with a dillusional view of some of the few sick

people of today’s society, and just makes it look like another common occurrence.

These shows are in bad taste, not caring who gets hurt but who will get the

better ratings for this kind of torture or humility of others. I can’t even

fathom why any broadcasting company would even sponsor this kind of public filth,

which I believe serves as a corrupting source of this nation.
