NBC Contradicts one of its own philosophies
    #2273404 - 01/26/04 02:14 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)

ha during the golden globes they had this little nbc "the more you know" message saying "Unless you've got a gavel, you shouldn't judge; so don't"

this during a program where non-judges judge people's work.

lol was this intentionally contradictory, or would these people not even realize what they were broadcasting and when?

how stupid... I'm wondering if they realized they did that though - well I guess that's anybody's call

I would venture to say they did not realize that they were being complete hypocrites. That's how it usually works. Look at Bush :wink:

well sometimes I think its above that where people send the message "ha look at how blatantly contradictory we are! look! haaahaa and only the people we've labeled 'crazies' even notice! Check it out, crazies, we're total hypocrites and nobody who matters seems to say anything about it!"

But I could just be crazy :smile: :grin: :nut:

well... that could very much be the case too. It probably is in a lot of situations.

I'd like to think it's a blatant and arrogant attempt to drive the lot of us insane, simple malevolence would be so much more comforting than thinking the people that run NBC really are that dumb.  But then I turn on the television and am forced to confront the sad reality of the matter...  :sad: :nonono: :sad:

Don't worry, I'm wrong.

ha you're probably right...

As strange as it sounds, though, I wish they were brilliantly blatantly contradicting themselves (world leaders, corporate scumbags, industrial smoothing companies... you name it) in order to get everybody to freak out and demand change, but I find it hard to accept this..

One way to get rid of the momentum this system has these days would be to simply keep going at full force and let friction do the rest - ha this is wishful thinking though. I doubt these corporate scumbags really want it all to fall apart - well not until they're retired anyway, and by that time there's a new crew of young scumbags trying to hold it all up again

rofl I'd better stop ranting on like this..

What I like is the "infinite regression" that sometimes occurs in media like two mirrors face to face.

Examples would be the media coverage of the OJ Simpson trial, or Michael Jackson or even the Peterson case, where one show asks if there is too much media attention on said subject. The producers take an hour covering about too much coverage thereby adding to the noise and then another show asks if we are obsessed with these subjects and there it goes in an interminable loop.

The proof is in the pudding.

lol yeah I've noticed that a lot too.... We'll soon see a seven hour special on NBC about excessive story coverage
