I came across this article: http://xfinity.comcast.net/...
CW wants to create a Hunger Games "style" reality program. This is a slippery slope in my not so humble opinion.
What happens when people get tired of the manufactured drama that they see on regular reality programs? The highest rated Survivor was the one where one of the contestants was seriously injured. We have bloodlust, we want to see crime scenes and crime scene photos - how long before we're screaming for blood on our televisions screens or better yet... live? How long before we start seeing a Running Man style program using convicted criminals (or enemies of the state).
The far right wing in this country has no problem screaming for blood. The only blood that should be spared is that of a multiple cell entity residing in a woman's uterus; everything else is fair game.
The fact that the majority of news sources are consolidated and own by 3 major entities makes the possibility of a "bloodfest" far more realistic than not.
CW, to me, is cracking open that door. Where do we draw the line? Are we headed for that dystopian future that many authors like Huxely, Orwell and Bradbury envisioned?
