Tell me what you want to see

As a child who wanted nothing more than to grow up and become a journalist, I used to write stories for and draw out my own homemade "newspapers" to distribute to my family on Sunday mornings at breakfast. I tried to design my publications based on what I thought each of my family members might want to read. Dad's "newspaper" was about sports, and my younger sister's often featured reports on Strawberry Shortcake and her social circle.

Reality TV is the worst kind of TV

I remember watching the first season of Survivor in 2000. It was a new kind of television and seemed exciting. Television reviewers wondered if it would catch on. Little did they know how big reality TV would become. 14 years later, there are countless reality shows and entire networks devoted to the genre. It's too bad, really, because most of reality TV ignores the original mission of television: to entertain, to educate and to inform. It's time to be very choosy about the reality TV we watch. Here's why.
