    "Of course, the pressure of time and the need to tell a story means that you often end up with a crude caricature of real life...a condensed `bullet point` version of events that can be easily manipulated to tell almost any story you like."

    This is not only true for `reality` tv shows, but for nightly television news broadcasts as well.

    If the news editor has a bias leaning towards one way or the other, so too can the minions in the editing room manipulate ordinary footage of a news event to appear slanted as well.

    So that`s how they edit-in all the man-bashing in the media...

    This proves that most of the rubbish on TV is deeply contrived! There are no laws against misleading the public, in this respect.

    Agree. That`s why i don`t watch these shows any longer. It got to a point of "now where watching him picking his nose". It`s WRONG damnit!

    The point is, would you rather watch an hour every night of people sitting around chatting when you could do that yourself in a pub, or would it be better to think that the complete strangers on the tv are doing mad outrageous things? I know what I`d rather be watching, whether its true or not.

    the saddest of all is that 99.99% of the population don`t even realize that they are constantly and consistently manipulated in this way.

    if they see it on TV, it must be true.

    Of course, the irony is, because this is a TV show, there`s always the possibility that this has been edited too.

    I love Screenwipe. I`ve only seen a few but what I have seen is hilarious. If you live in the UK, watch this show when it`s on.

    That was very eye-opening. Exposing the subtle details that everyone overlooks.

    you know, the point of reality shows is to entertain people (TO MAKE MONEY!). Regardless of their actual degree of reality, they do their job.

    Also— Reality television is not reality at all. It is only a television program made to make money by creating a sensational story out of nothing. Reality shows only manage to brainwash ignorant teenagers into believing what they see is, in fact, reality. I feel that reality shows are one of the leading causes to the increase of eating disorders and the biggest promoters of the “I only need to have fun and look out for myself” mentality, which so many of us Americans seem to enjoy… especially in our foreign policy.
