I have some serious concerns about Jerry Springer's role in this
I belive kids can look at a cartoon and probably understand that dropping
an anvil on someone has consequences beyond birds chirping around your
But what about the Jerry Springer show? I know its trash, yadda, yadda,
yadda,...but people watch it. And like silly putty on the Sunday funnies,
that shit rubs off on ya.
People get into fist fights on the show constantly! And with no
consequences. Lesson: Real people on TV solve their problems by hurling
chairs and pulling hair. If you get *really* violent, they ask you to take
your seat. That's it. The same jilted lover attacks her ex with her high
heeled shoe half a dozen times throughout the show. The viewer is
witnessing criminal activities without any legal repercussions. That scares
me. Assault and battery are not acceptable methods of problem resolution.
But for the zillions who watch Jerry's show (I hear he's beating Oprah), I
fear its not so clear.
Maybe if they made it into an animated series, instead?
