  1. Not sure I agree- I have seen more honest TV in the Simpsons or South Park. Nice, glossy, corporate ‘actors’ giving a little bit of a backwards step. He forgot the million dead Iraqi’s, the millions of dead Vietnamese and Cambodians after that little raid. The 5000 dead US soldiers in the past few years. The 2-3,000 dead on 9-11. The $4 trillion stolen from Pentagon. The trillions stolen with the bailout. Oh, and the most obese Nation on earth. If the media are able to use glossy corporate actors in a glossy corporate TV show to admit to just 20% of the reality- it is indeed a sorry excuse for TV.

  2. Surprised the show hasn’t gone off the air already. Great critique; but we desperately need solutions now. I know step # 1 – Throw the bums out!
