'Big Brother' demeans us all

Is there are more depressing indictment of Britain's cultural, moral and educational decline under modern turbo capitalism, than the television programme 'Big Brother'?
In the name of 'entertainment', a group of narcissistic thickos are put in a house together and spend the time talking about themselves or calling each other names. Can television sink any lower?
Here's an article by my wife Zsuzsanna on how the dumbing down process which 'Big Brother' represents has sadly spread to her native Hungary.

I dunno. BB has its uses. Keeps people's minds off Iraq and Saddam's WMD, for one thing.
