38. They don't do episodes about protesters being pepper sprayed.
They do episodes about sex crimes.

And no, it's not reckless to keep this movement from being a backdrop to corporate profit-making shallowness. People are so accustomed to everything in this life being fodder for TV fictionalizations, that it just doesn't occur to way too many people that it just ain't cool to do that. It doesn't help. It's not going to "raise awareness," it's going to put advertising dollars into already wealthy people's pockets. The gaffers will work again tomorrow.


That's not all that difficult to understand.
