- Big Brother Australia
Their idea of giving an animatronic baby to a woman who had her baby die a few hours after birth under two years ago was just too much. Channel 10 and the show’s producers have advised they were fully aware of Kates loss before they decided to put the challenge to the housemates! Disgusting. Worse still is some of the reaction from the public who feel that Kate knew what she was getting herself into by going on the show in the first place! Bullshit that she should expect them to be so digustingly cruel.
There has been some speculation that Big Brother pulled this stunt as this season is seeing them receive some of their lowest ever ratings, and this was to be a puller for the show. The fact that their ratings dropped by almost 300,000 viewers the night after the event makes me a little happy.
An avid Big Brother fan for the past six seasons (much to the disgust of my friends) I can’t leap this hurdle and continue to watch after what they have done. Good luck Big Brother that was the last episode I will watch and, hopefully, this will be your last year for sure.
- Current Affairs shows
Next week the big story that “A Current Affair” is going to be bringing us is about how the photos you see of food on fast food restaurant menues isn’t an accurate representation of the food. How it is manipulated with lighting, air brushing and Photoshop before it is put on the menu.
I mean well, duh! Like we don’t all know that. There are very, very, very few photos of any kind in any publication or on public display anywhere in the world that hasn’t seen some form of manipulation. Give me a break, it is not news and it certainly isn’t current. What it is? Pathetic sensationalist reporting.
- Governments who think they need to control by fear
I saw Rosie O’donnell’s rant on The View (via YouTube) about how words like “Terrorist”, “Axis of evil”, “Cell” and other such scary words are used to create shadow like creatures for us to fear. Not very often do these things have a face and when the do, we kill it and start creating new scary things to be afraid of.
I don’t think it is a mistake that Osama Bin Laden is still running around out there somewhere. He is an individual who according to the propaganda is capable of destroying democracy single handedly. Why would anyone want to kill the boogeyman if he keeps all the kids in bed with their knees curled to their chest in fear? All the easier to ensure they don’t step out of line if they think he truly exists!
I’m sure there are a few other things I’m hating at the moment… but these three should be enough for now :P
