thus spake kristy
<<Secondly, it's a damn show. A set, a farce, and one hour of entertaiment,
operating under the pretense of something "serious". No matter what subject, I don't take it seriously. Oh, so the new Oprah wants to

the public, and offer enlightenment and therapy to all domesticated housewives? Yeah right. Money is behind everything on public television,
but they want you to believe it's for other"I'm every woman...I *care* about you all." What a crock of bullshit. In the end, those shows are about public idols like her preying on the weakness and suffering of her guests, and the gullibility of her audience.>>

you should now stop believing what richard says BECAUSE he was on oprah.

everything is about money: this is true... but for example cooking shows: sure the broadcasting company makes money from advertisers... but you LEARN HOW TO COOK SOMETHING!

youre being a little too critical of a celebrity... id hate to imagine this is bullshit environment (in which everything i say is perceived:
"bullshit" - i am not disturbed) i can no longer write music because
youd just assume i did it only for money... (and i intend to make money too!) and every book you ever read was only published so the publisher and author could make money... where does media stop being bullshit and start being true?
