Reality TV

We are living in a reality show.

Nothing is Real: When Reality TV Programming Masquerades as Politics:

When a population becomes distracted by trivia, when cultural life is redefined as a perpetual round of entertainments, when serious public conversation becomes a form of baby-talk, when, in short, a people become an audience, and their public business a vaudeville act, then a nation finds itself at risk; culture-death is a clear possibility.”
—  Neil Postman

Found this morning after arguing with my wife about the "news" story of the dog that didn't want to jump in the raging water.
