The white-trashing of American television.
Mar 17, 2014, Vol. 19, No. 26 • By JOHN PODHORETZ
It must be said that embarrassment comes in many shapes and sizes, including intellectual embarrassment, like Michael Tolkin’s argument here. As it happens, these shows are not embarrassing at all. For one thing (with the exception of True Blood), they’re just too good, too interesting, too flavorful. Still, rich Hollywood folk making mincemeat out of poor rural folk is another element of the ongoing American culture war that should not go unremarked.
