So important!

I’m glad someone endeavored to do this kind of work. Entertaining and so informative. Well done!

Whoa - terrifying and illuminating

Entertaining examination of how reality TV shapes reality and our criminal justice system for the worse. Would make for a fantastic media literacy unit for high school or college students. I only hope some enterprising lawyers and policy makers take note and try to address the corruption at play here.
