    I would make it a law for everyone to learn to spell reality. Don't worry, you're not the only one. :P

    @MongoAPillager = wack job. ;-). I agree with you, I'd like to outlaw these stupid reality shows, too, but the only power we really have is to use our TV remotes and change the channel in protest. Or turn the danged thing off. Uh oh ... now I sound like a wack job, too!

    Couple of hot girls, rednecks making fools of themselves and the "good people of the Bible belt" protesting? It's a sure hit.

    But we heard nothing from the Bible belt when Sarah Palin had a reality show which was one of the most stupid things ever put on the internet. But .... she is one of their own.

    If this is top on Manchins priority list, I would say he need to pay more attention to the reality show in D C.

    I think the Senator should be watching CNBC or Bloomberg. Cut government waste and make him pay for his own cable if he wants to watch this.

    Is it just me or does anyone else think a senator probably isn't in touch with what normal people do for fun?

    The channel that produced 16 and Pregnant and 'now' he's upset? Nice timing Captain Obvious.
    People will watch, it's like passing an accident. You have to watch. It's a train wreck.

    I saw Jersey shore once. I saw the Khardashians once. I almost made it through one episode of Honey Boo Boo. You pretty much have to watch one show at least partially to confirm that you don't need to stop the channel clicking for any reason when you recognize a character from a reality show.

    No. Every part of this country has it's own unique social structure, which people find fascinating (I guess). This is no different than the shows that focus on the Jersey Shore, the Amish, Gypsies, rich housewives, hair dressers, loggers, moonshiners etc.

    It is equal opportunity trash.

    reckon they'd just nail him up if he came down again.

    Eggheads cussing rednecks cussin hippies for their hair
    others laugh at freaks who laugh at gays who laugh at squares
    Some folks hate the whites, who hate the blacks, who hate the Klan
    Most of us hate anything we don't understand.

    Since they keep producing these shows, money is being made. Why people want to watch such trash is beyond me.

    And I'm not putting this across as a negative racial statement, but why do 99% of these shows depict stupid white people?

    Funny that being politically correct goes out the window when it comes to the rural populace, seems some folks are really not as enlightened as they think they are.

    @jessejaymes Personally I would never assume that everyone there is like that, let alone make fun of them. It's different when it comes to rural areas, people from cities automatically assume they are smarter.

    Political correctness isn't all it's cracked up ro be. Myself and my family and friends treat folks how we wish to be treated, use common courtesy, and manners. Handling folks with kid gloves is exhausting, so I do my dangedest to avoid it.

    @Wary there are two different "smarts"there is "book"smart and then there is "common sense"people in the city are pretty much helpless when they lose power,gas for a couple of weeks,for most people in the country ain't no big deal

    @texas_cutie75 To be fair I too am not a big fan of PC. But I'm not from the city anymore, for reason. Either the"rules" apply to everyone or no one.

    Well, first its MTV, 39% of its viewers are under 18. It has an average viewership of only 700,000 and thats for its biggest shows. So its hardly making a statement, and even if it were, it would be making a statement to people who have more important things on their minds than how WV is portrayed. Hollywood has long fostered regional bias and stereotypes: NYC- dangerous and crime-ridden. Alaskan's- eccentric, The south- fat &uneducated low income racists, San Francisco- gay, Chicago- sports/food obsessed, The midwest- bible belt, Californians- sun worshipping, flaky, self-serving opportunists. Texas- cowboys, evil republicans, oil mongers. etc. Any thinking person knows its all BS, but then again we ARE talking about Manchin.

    I could care less. I've be watching a true reality show about America's transformation from freedom to enslavement. It's a live show taking place right outside my window. I wish my senator would make and effort to get it canceled. My v-chip seems to be faulty as the show is continuously on despite my repeated attempts to block it. I seem to be suffering from some side effects from it as well. I keep having this urge to buy large quantities ammunition and hoard gold.

    If Manchin is concerned about the way this show will portray his state - and I can't say I blame him - why doesn't he try to convince the dumb rednecks who are starring int he show to forego all the money they will earn and all the attention they're getting? Reality TV shows that humiliate and degrade people couldn't be made if there weren't so many of us eager to be humiliated and degraded just to become "famous".

    NO. Riles is an idiot. Probably Jealous cause nobody's made a show on him.
    " life of an imbecile Senator" lmfao!

    Much ado about nothing. It's "M"tv for crying out loud. The same network that brought us trash like the Real World and Jersey Shore. Probably won't amount to high ratings anyways...

    The true irony is that states like WV (and Texas, and Alabama, and S. Carolina, etc.) always position themselves as the moral barometer of our great union. Camera says otherwise.

    What should offend people is that the idiots who watch "reality tv" programs are allowed to vote! Clearly there is a disconnect there!
