all we need now is for about 8934568473927698 moms to edit out the bad syntax, correct the grammar, print it out and sign it and mail it.

It's be fun to watch the networks scramble to put stuff on the air that doesn't make people wince.

Failing that, for a small fee, I'll send you all an off button and a wiring diagram. I can't be the only person on earth who watches what we say we do and then what we actually do and feels like they need a bath.

bunner: I, for one, am watching each of your unctuous offerings all the way through this week so I can also write letters to every one of your advertisers

This I could not do. I put together a presentation once about the pressure women face to keep their bodies up to an unrealistic standard, and as part of my research I decided to watch daytime television and take notes about how advertisers market their cosmetic, weight-loss, and plastic surgery ads.

I managed to get more than enough examples after about an hour. And thank God, because the shiatty programming I sifted through was MIND-NUMBING.

All I know is the last time I heard "DANGEROUS! "EXTREEEEEEEEME! SHOCKING! UNBELIEVABLE!! "NAUGHTY! "EDGY!" and "UNSETTLING!" as many times as I do on TeeVee was at a carnival midway freak show when I was 10.

There's a saying amongst people who make records.

"If everything is loud, nothing is loud."

I'm pretty sure daytime TeeVee, Nickelback and strip clubs have borne this out.

Roook: Bathia_Mapes: They picked up the girl in a limo, flew her to New York & lodged her alone in a hotel, again without her mother's knowledge.

Could that count as kidnapping across state lines?


Quite possibly.

That would be sweet, because then Tyra could invite the girl back for her future show, "Kidnapped Sex Addicts".

EL_FABREZ: If a limo comes and picks up your kid and then she flies to New York without you noticing you kind of prove you have no parenting abilities.

This was my first thought, however she could probably do this within a matter of hours(I'm guessing private plane involved), its quite feasible a teen could lie about her potential whereabouts for a few hours.

TrixieDelite: whatabrotherknow: Sadly, I suspect more people will know about this girl's exploitation now because of the lawsuit rather than the fact she was on the show to begin with.

How many of you farkers saw this episode before reading about it/watching it just now?

I didn't even know Tyra Banks had a talk show. I thought she was still modeling wet bikinis for SI.


Not since she got fat and old and fat.

She tried to call her mother, but what is ya, ignorant? The phone in the limo is broke.

teeny: Don't give a 15-year-old a cell phone. Duh. This is a growing trend that I'll never understand. I don't care if it *is* only a few extra dollars to add them to your plan...you might as well hand them your car keys and credit card, too.

You can track their ass over GPS/tower triangulation without them ever knowing.. AT&T Family Map, for example. She says she's at the library studying? Grounded!

Prof. Frink: Hick: I had never seen that show before, but I was in the waiting room getting my oil changed. They had bottles of blood in various colors explaining how during a woman's period how it changes color.

I left that room, real fast.

Yeah...you're already smart enough to replace the filter before the goo trapped in it gets all chunky and discolored. And also to maintain your car.


If I went into the waiting room at the car place and they had bottles of blood in there, I'd leave too.

Tatsuma: Occam's Chainsaw: Capitalism marches on. And we're supposed to believe that if we just left everyone alone to do as they pleased, this would eliminate itself. Even as a mainstream show from a major network shows that they're willing to skirt criminality (or possibly throw caution to the wind and wholeheartedly engage in it) to make a buck.

I wouldn't call 'CW' a major network or TBS 'mainstream'.

Also, I wouldn't blame capitalism, I'd blame the basest instincts of human nature.

Voyeurism is not a product of a capitalist environment, comrade.


In fact, "capitalism" is not a social system - it's just a way of making money.

Is this where I put an ITG comment where I assume everything alleged by the plaintiff is true? There could never be another explination (dad signed contract, mother is lying, etc.) it must be that everything the plaintiff says is 100% true.

Without them knowing? You've got to be kidding.

That might be true for, like, a ten year old, but most teens I know more about how GPS works than their parents do.

The show violated McClendon's right to privacy by putting her daughter, who was a minor, on television without McClendon's permission, the lawsuit claims.

The lawsuit also claims negligence, saying the teen was paid for her appearance but that the show didn't get permission from the labor commissioner to employ her and didn't get McClendon's permission before paying the girl to fly to New York, stay in a hotel alone and appear on the show.


Are civil trials about direct breaches of explicit law still "lawsuits"? Because I'm pretty sure all of those things are crimes in most places. I mean, you're basically talking about kidnapping. I guess it's a civil matter because it was initiated by the girl... but then hiring a minor without parental permission is still criminal territory.

Though thumbs up to the girl for finding her path in life, guess she has a bright future as a high-profile con (wo)man.
 
2010-10-18 07:00:06 AM
It qualifies the person who arranged to have her picked up, flown and lodged as a sexual predator.

I don't think a "few million" is going to cut it in the eyes of the Judge, this is exploitation in its most vile intent.
 
2010-10-18 07:35:04 AM
Do we know if the daughter lived at home and if Mom had custody? Or did Dad/Guardian sign off on the whole stupid thing?

/If I were the parent, I'd be more concerned about getting criminal charges filed than trying to get a fat check.

hicksfa2: Methinks there is more to this story than what the mother is leading us to believe...

This. And the sad thing about this is that no matter how this ultimately plays out, the daughter's life is completely farked up.

I love all the people here "siding with the mother".
That would be the mother who lets her 15 year old roam the streets at night like a dog in heat.
The mother who didn't even know her daughter was in New York until she sees the show.
Yeah, poor mom.
Stay classy.

Depends on who you talk to. While teens are certainly tech savvy, I find few of them have more than a surface level understanding of technology. So while a teen may know full well that he/she can be tracked by GPS or cell phone triangulation, few of them would know what to do to prevent it, short of just leaving the phone at home of course.

Not to rain on your hate parade, but you do understand that a lot of the people who go on these daytime talk shows aren't exactly being 100% truthful? Most of them are just attention whores who want their 15 minutes, even if they have to say they farked their gay mother's step brother's goat. Tyra is just one step above Springer which is about as real as professional wrestling or most reality shows.

Not only that, but in many cases the phones in question CANNOT have the GPS disabled short of turning the phone all the way off, so even if the teen does know about it, there's not much they can do about it. Unless they wanna be cut off from their texting buddies (Which in this case would probably be a good thing...)

According to the article, she filed a missing person report, so she knew her daughter was missing, just not where.

And you don't need to think she was mother of the year to agree that what the network did was reprehensible. I have a bit more sympathy for a mother struggling to raise her daughter, even if she doesn't do everything "right" in my opinion, than I do for the host and executives of a TV show looking solely to profit by putting the girl on air as a spectacle.

I'd advise you to RTFA. They noticed she was gone and filed a missing persons report with the police.
 
2010-10-18 09:34:23 AM
Bathia_Mapes: Ya know, I'm going to side with the teen's mother on this one. The girl isn't old enough to legally make such decisions.

The show contacted the girl without her mother's knowledge. They picked up the girl in a limo, flew her to New York & lodged her alone in a hotel, again without her mother's knowledge.


The child doesnt need to be with a mother who is so out of touch that she actually has the ability to do all this without her mom knowing.

FTFA: "Beverly McClendon claims the show contacted the teen on her cell phone after she responded to a request on the show's website seeking 'sex addicts'."

Uhh, quastion! Why isn't the dumbass kid even held partly responsible? FFS, she even knew what she it was about.

Seriously, I'm pretty damn sure that it was mentioned to her that she'd be leaving the flipping state for some time before she blatantly decided to be on a talk show. By herself. Without a farking guardian.

Or are kids so stupid these days that they can't take responsibility for their own mistakes until their 35?
 
2010-10-18 09:42:01 AM
I'm having a really hard time taking the mother's version of this story at face value. I can't imagine they would do this without signed permission from a legal guardian. This is television 101 stuff here.

The producer is the villain here mas well as the associate producer who was the primary contact with the girl. They never heard of "due diligence"?

Underage kids get legal protection because they don't/won't/can't always make good decisions.

But when you reach legal age, there's always "Taxicab Confessions".
