Jerry Springer Rips US TV "News"


The headline reads Springer attacks 'slow' UK shows but
Springer ... reserved his strongest criticism for US TV news, calling it "sensationalistic, inaccurate, not important, teasing".

Springer said his US chat show, The Jerry Springer Show - which regularly shows confrontations between members of the public - cannot be criticised in the same way.

"Ours is entertainment. Big difference. Our show is a circus, period," he said.

"You want to be part of the circus, with a big wink? Come on. But if you say 'this is what's happening in the world, this is news,' you have a responsibility to be truthful."
I never thought there would come a day when I would say "Hooray for Jerry Springer" but I think I just did!
