I wholeheartedly agree with Katie Avagliano’s article, Reality TV, because I believe that reality tv does not show reality. Many of the shows broadcasted on the television do not show “real pain, the kind that happens in everyday life,” as Katie says. It would help people see into others’ real lives for a change. From my perspective, I think that it creates an allusion that some children expect to believe once they grow up. They believe the things, like only the popular girls are perfect, and the Glee club is going to be great, and nerds are always picked on. Not all of that is true, and if the social media would show at least one show where there is even a hint of truth, then I would be satisfied. Thank you Katie, for telling the rest of our adolescent peers the importance of truth in the media.
