Sleazy Shows Damage

Date Posted: 2000-08-11

There are cultures that are not as “liberal” and “free” as in America but the much sought after American television surreptitiously introduces our standards and our way of thinking to those cultures in a very “irreversible way”. You cannot just have CNN coming to your house via satellite television; you’ll have other channels and particularly, other shows that will come into your house through that open window. Sure there is “Party of Five” and “Beverly Hills 90201” that “address real issues” but these issues are only a product of the way of life that we know as American. Take the immensely popular “Melrose Place” which to any casual, impartial observer is just a sleazy show in which every one of the original characters have had sex with each other in every conceivable mathematical combination. Damaging as this kind of programming is to the younger generation in America, it does damage of a farther reaching consequence when aired to a foreign culture.
