"The Toddlers & Tiaras star known as "Honey Boo Boo" after her personal catchphrase visited CNN's Starting Point Tuesday morning to discuss her new reality series and to debut a whole new slogan soon to be seen emblazoned on crop tops all across this great nation...".* Honey Boo Boo child and her... interesting family have shot to massive success on TLC, with some reports saying they took in better ratings than Bill Clinton's acclaimed DNC speech. That's totally not true, but the rise of "tragedy porn" and exploitation of poor families on reality TV is still cause for concern. Should we be worried about escapism through shows like Honey Boo Boo and the Kardashian clans latest doings? Tune in to this episode of the Common Room and find out, then let us know what you think! (Part #2 will come in just a few days)
What do you think? Should we care that mindless shows like Honey Boo Boo and other reality TV crazes are so popular? Or is this just more of the same? People trying to escape from the harsh reality of their lives by watching those less fortunate (or richer but still not happy)? Leave a comment down below letting us know what you think!
