Reality television has faced significant criticism since its rise in popularity. Much of the criticism has centered around the use of the word “reality”, and such shows’ attempt to present themselves as a straightforward recounting of events that have occurred.
Critics have argued that reality television shows do not present reality in ways both implicit (participants being placed in artificial situations) and deceptive or even “fraudulent”, such as misleading editing, participants being coached in what to say or how to behave, storylines generated ahead of time, and scenes being staged or re-staged for the cameras.
Other criticisms of reality television shows include that they are intended to humiliate or exploit participants (particularly on competition shows), that they make “celebrities” out of “untalented people” who do “not” deserve fame, and that they glamorize vulgarity and materialism.
IN MY REALITY, I shall never understand how “some” people can sit and watch complete, “unreal” and utter garbage such as reality TV. But that is only my personal opinion of course !!!
Turn off your tv’s , vacate your sofa’s and discover your “own” reality.
