The MTV Real World Series is tired……

I remember when the Real World series launched realty TV for good…after many tries…..The new show is based in Washington D.C. and  was shot last summer …it has premiered with very small ratings…maybe the producers will finally pack up, and send the series out of business…….

Counterpoint…..how much is enough in the Tiger Woods story?

I very good piece from the LA Times about the times we live in…with a hunger for gossip, sensationalism and reality….

The counterpoint in the piece is good…Woods has controlled his image top maximize his pocket…he now finds himself in a situation that demands privacy…..At what do we..the public…cut him some slack?…Does he have that right?……How much of a public person is he?….And is he allowed to be a private person?….And isn’t this just between him…and his wife?

Good piece …should be required reading for every ‘public person’…..

White House gate crashers will be questioned……

While the story of Michaele and Tareq Salahi’s gate crashing the White House might seem amusing to some ….it has not been to the Secret Service…as I mentioned when the story broke…some Secret Service people are going get burned….and as I suggested…the couple themselves are going to be speaking to investigators, who will forward their finding to their bosses, who will decide how to proceed with this incident……

Stay tuned…there IS going to be more to come……

Update: Here is a piece from the Washington Post on the attention (reality show ) angle…….

Balloon caper is a hoax?…..the extreme's of reality TV…….

It seems that Richard Heene may have planned this caper all along, according to Larimer County sheriff  Jim Alderden……..The department has started an investigation and it appears that ‘Falcon’s” father  had been working on the whole thing for several weeks, so that he could  get a possible reality show for him and the family……if proven true,  I really think that the whole thing was terrible…….

It also gets us to the question…..How far will people go to get themselves on TV?

The terrible thing is subjecting law enforcement and emergency works to a totally false scenario…including the scrambling of military assets and the chase across the state by news helicopters. Which could have caused a serious problem if an accident, or injury occurred in trying to secure the safety of a child, that wasn’t even in danger…..

Things started off good for the couple…but once Wolf Blizer sensed a problem with the child’s answer to a question …things went south……unfortunately people will stage anything to get their ten minutes of fame, and that may turn out someday to be tragic……..

A whole lot of people got used here…….
