Apparently he's borrowing the playbook from doctor phil.
Great, so she`s really pretty stupid and a bad parent. Dumb people and bad parents aren`t exactly in short supply.
But of course it`s a talk show. Ppl, like stupid, bad parents, love to point and say "Look at them, I`m way better than that freak/idiot!".
They`re like reality shows; their main function is to make all the pitiful individuals who secretly suspect they suck at life convince themselves that they don`t by dragging in the absolute most extreme fringes of society and putting them in the spotlight.
Expressing righteous indignation at anything short of the absolute most obscure issues risks weakening the bubble of denial that envelopes some by suggesting everything they do might not be amazing and they may not be better than everyone else, and that`s the opposite of what they look for in a talk show. Jerry springer is the champ at facilitating the denial bubble.
