6. CSI:America-- Special Victims Unit
Edited on Sat Jun-25-05 11:55 AM by omega minimo
Good call. Sounds like the cliche-stream media is creating these shiny TV fairy tales and people are predictably pissed. As you say, THEY DON'T HAVE TO WATCH!

When it shows up on DU as a new flavor of vitriol spat at "blonde white chicks"-- it's reinforcing-- not addressing-- the problem.

Are the people who are watching this sort of BS coverage and being manipulated by the (rich, white male) media barons also watching the TV franchises built on the vicitmization and brutalization of these same "blonde white chicks"?

Maybe it's media synergy these folks should go after. The "missing attractive women/cute girl" is a lead-in for the bloody CSI:Anywhere show.
