Is Growth In Reality TV A Reaction To Scripted Liberal TV?

Hollywood liberals consistently deny that they “blacklist” conservatives, or that center-right political views are routinely and overtly excluded from the entertainment industry’s collective voice. But in a strong riposte, Ben Shapiro’s new book, “Primetime Propaganda: The True Hollywood Story of How the Left Took Over Your TV”, provides extensive documentation on Hollywood’s political clout, demonstrating the crippling hand the entertainment industry has in pushing Americans to readily accept its left-wing agenda as a truthful reality.

While viewers might believe they can separate themselves from the subliminal messaging, Shapiro counters that idea.

"You get home from work, kick off your shoes, and plop down in front of the TV, hoping simply to chill out. Instead, you get unmitigated liberalism pouring out of your TV. But you continue to watch because it’s great. It’s fun, thrilling, dramatic, or hilarious. We think it has no impact on us.

But it does. Television made Barack Obama. Television it supported bigger and bigger government, from Welfare to health care; pushed abortion-on-demand and the radical gay agenda into the mainstream; it stumped against war and for meaningless buzzwords like diversity and dangerous buzzwords like multiculturalism. Television has done more to change the politics of our nation than simple politics has.

Television has manipulated us. And those who create television have done it purposefully, and elegantly. They have weeded out conservatives in the industry wholesale. They have worked hand-in-glove with liberals in government to forward the leftist agenda. They have turned pure entertainment into a vehicle for propaganda."

In an interview tonight on The O'Reilly Factor, Author Shapiro delivered a very insightful interview. One of the points he made was that the growth and ratings in reality TV was a reaction to the written liberal themes many of the prime-time TV shows put forward. GLEE was used as an example of a scripted liberal TV show as propaganda.

Do you watch Reality TV because you know that it may be a "what you see is what you get" program or because you are turned off by being spoon fed liberal living examples that might challenge your principles.

    So called "reality" TV shows are scripted as much as any other shows on television, but are cheaper and easier to produce. As they are undoubtedly more profitable than traditional programming, more of them are put on the air. It's interesting to note that the Hollywood elitists only vehemently oppose profit as motivation when it applies to other industries.

    I would doubt that "reality" shows are any less politically biased than traditional shows are, but can't fairly say since I haven't watched one since "Combat Missions" ended.

    While Reality TV is generally cheaper to make, I do feel the popularity of scripted propaganda TV is on the decline with many viewers and since the bottom line is important, networks will go where the money is. There are very few 'scripted' programs I watch anymore --- I do follow NCIS, Bones, and programs of the type. I don't watch 'situation comedy' anymore --- too much liberal propaganda for my taste.

    No - Reality TV is just cheaper to make
    Some people see whatever they see whereever they go, but the much more likely reality is that these decisions are driven by costs and not by politics.

    TV networks are run by large corporations where the bottom line is king.
