For those who don't follow Big Brother - they have a 24/7 live feed you can subscribe to and watch what's going on in the house at any time. As a result, it's been discovered that about 1/3 of the house are raging racists and homophobes and/or seriously misogynistic. Gradually, CBS has started airing a little bit of these comments. Originally they were covering them up.
Problem is now, they're only showing what a few people have said, leaving the audience in the dark that there are others in the house equally, or even more, offensive unless they subscribe to the live feed or read the websites that report what happens on them.
There have been some repercussions without the comments being included on air - 2 of them have been fired from their jobs. Others have had friends/family make public statements distancing themselves from their comments.
The question - is only showing some and not all acceptable? Some are unmasked and revealed on the network, others get to hide in the recesses of the internet where only devoted fans of the show will ever find out. Should it be all or nothing, or is some better than none?
(Putting this here because it's not just a fluffy tv show discussion, reprehensible as they are, they are legally allowed to make the comments. The question is how they should be delivered to the world.)
