An Underclass View of Political Reality TV

Reality TV has captured the hearts and minds of the American people. There are reality shows about almost anything you’re interested in, and things that disgust you also. There are shows that let the viewers enter and hang around the homes, and lives of housewife’s of the rich and famous. A viewer can dance with a Star and vote and feel involved in choosing a winner. VIEWER INVOLVEMENT makes it feel real. My wife and oldest daughter like to follow people here in America and around the world as they look to buy expensive homes that we can’t fit in our budget. She comes up with some good ideas to beautify the home that is in our budget on HGTV. I like the reality shows on Discovery, History, and Animal Planet. The Professional and College Sports is my Reality TV also. Reality TV serves to substitute for real life experience and the lack there of any opportunity to experience being there. They are very entertaining, but in most cases they are a way to waste time. These days there are millions of people with time to waste, as they wait to be employed again. Reality TV is a mild continued action anti depressant used to relieve the stress of idleness.


Reality TV Politics serve the same purpose as Reality TV, to entertain while time is wasted, and people are idle. The biggest difference is VOTER INVOLVEMENT which cultivates voter loyalty. Both Major Political Parties have their own 24/7 Reality News Channels. The Republican’s Channel is Fox News, and the Democrat’s Reality News channel is MSNBC News. The Fox News channel pioneered Reality Political News, and demonstrated the influential power of reality politics in the 2000 Presidential Election. While all or most other major networks and cable news declared a Republican Party lost in Florida, Fox News declared the Republican Party Victory and so the democrats lost the election. I don’t know how long Fox news had been broadcasting then, but they looked and acted Professional. The studio looked well set up .

Voter involvement is used to capture the heart, mind, and soul of the American voters. With the technology of today, everyday people can feel like they are part of the various teams. They can call in, text, skipe, email, or tweet their favorite political figures and reality news personalities. They can receive replies that really make them feel that they and their vote can and will make a difference. They are made to feel needed, included, and special, everybody likes that feeling. The News offered by Reality Political TV News should always to taken with a grain of salt. The fact is that the Reality Political news is for entertainment only and not reported by news correspondents; this fact at one time was announced as a disclaimer. These two channels deal in opinions of the news 24/7, not reporting the news. Their opinions are so opposite, if you heard both Fox and MSNBC’s report of the same important political action chosen by Obama, you’ll wonder if they have the same facts in front of them. Facts are not as important or useful as opinions while playing Reality Politics.


AMERICA AND AMERICANS NEEDS JOBS, I said that loud because it’s not priority in Washington, 2016 is all that matters there now. We the people had better pay attention; the jobs are gone and won’t be coming back. We need jobs to turn our own personal economy around before or in the process of turning the nation’s economy around. We need jobs worse than a dead man need a casket. The private sector can’t or won’t employ enough people to keep the underclass from swallowing up the middle class soon. Don’t go for the okeydoke, we need government jobs, yesterday. We need government jobs to rebuild our infrastructure and create high speed rail transportation to reduce gas consumption. This is not the time to apply the brakes on spending, just to weaken the Presidency. Spending had been a problem of the previous administration, and that administration ended just after spending many billions to bail out Big Banks and Wall Street. Fiscal responsibility was not seen as Republican mandate. I say the nation needs to spend more not less at this time to bail out the American people. America is not as broke as they say; it’s just a political ploy to defund the present administration, at a terrible cost to the American people.


The time between now and the 2016 election will be filled with a lot of non-issues. They will be brought to you by Reality Political TV, and it will cause a lot of pain for the people. The changes necessary for recovery would normally take a year or two to debate and implement each one. There are no serious debates at all about anything to aid we the people. Meanwhile we can waste time watching and reacting to the political entertainment offered 24/7 by political Reality TV until it hits the fan. We must STOP, LOOK, AND LISTEN, then, ACT. We the people need to find a way to let those Republicans and Democrats in Washington know we can’t wait until after 2016 to start our recovery.


Here on Hub pages the Political Forum is where we, the people give our political opinions. Many opinions are echoes of Political Reality TV. Some use hub pages for recreation, some to fellowship, other get paid and then there are those with a message. If I may, here is my message… WE THE PEOPLE MUST FORM A PERFECT UNION of Democrats, Republicans, Independents, Tea Party, or any legal citizen voter or non-voter. THEN we must figure out a way to communicate to the elected officials our immediate needs. At the top of our list of needs are JOBS. We, the people shouldn’t care where the jobs come from, Private sector, or GOVERNMENT JOBS, the people needs to work. Well, that’s my message. I know PA PA and MA MA don’t want to compete for entry-level jobs with their grandchildren anytime soon.

LOL I'm not sure I'd go so far as to call any of the news channels, or even politics, 'reality' if so, it's a mighty skewed reality. I Like this hub. Good write!

There is little or no reality in reality tv, it's just entertainment that offers viewer response. It is skewed reality,that's my point. thanks Bobbi for your comment.

Up and useful. I'd never thought of Fox and MSNBC as political reality shows. The MSNBC network seems more factual than Fox. I think Chris Matthews is the real deal. Issues like abortion and same sex marriage has such a large influence how so many voters cast their votes. Then there's racism. Some fear anything that may help minorities takes away from them.

Mimi721wis, Thanks for stopping by, I agree, and believe that Saturday Night Live news report seems more factual than Fox News. Three or four hot button moral issues has for years been used to maniplate those voters.

Junko, thanks for the follow and this hub. I threw a stone at you on another hub for being non-productive on the issue. I make no apologies for that.

I have no TV or phone, but a satellite allows me to see parts of the discussion here and I find your topic quite redemptive and will read more. You are quite correct in the way folks choose to vote. I choose checking voting records of potential candidates, while the majority chooses biased information net works that I feel are far from news outlets these days. I choose a non society involved lifestyle and you've nailed the point right here, there is nothing offered that is of face value. People are happily led by the nose ring of "reality?" TV. I was offered a slot on such a show to let people see how a hermit lives. I declined as I know 2 days of filming cut to 15 minutes of the hour, the truth would end up on the cutting room floor and focus on the fact I eat rattle snakes and other things for shock value, missing the point. I was "discovered on hub pages"

You've written a fine piece here nd I'll be voting it up, peace 50

Thank you 50 caliber. Your isolation gives you a different perspective than we urban and suburban dwellers. Your perception isn't clouded by the smog. A man must have no fear and peace with himself to live alone. I'll read you later, peace& happiness

An Underclass View of Political Reality TV:

About this presentation, I do declare that you have covered the issue most superbly short of telling the people in truth that they need to pack their bags and meet the government on the steps of the White House to let them know exactly how they feel about the foot that the Government has put upon our necks.Yes Gore did in "Truth" "WIN Florida"! To the great majority of the viwers I do believe that Reality TV is more accepted erroneously as being (Real) rather then not.The Lack of true knowledge being the catalyst for this error. We The People desperately need to take "STOCK" of ourselves.

Amen!Amen! Amen.

The ALLinAll!.

Don't believe the hype, your news outlet may be your worst enemy. Reread this than rethink where your understanding and your political reality came from.

Since Rupert Mardoch will replace Roger Ailes, will Fox Political News now be less sexy and more substance ?
