(NPR)   Remember when Paramount canceled the show Cops because its unquestioning embrace of authoritarian, fascist policing was getting a bit uncomfortable in the wake of George Floyd's murder? Well, Fox did the math and thinks those are selling points   (npr.org) divider line

Nope.  This is Fox News, which is still owned by Rupert Murdock.  Even Disney wouldn't buy it.

Cops was always on Fox, was it not?  Doesn't this mean they'll just be producing it themselves?  They should run all episodes live, IMHO, that's the only way to ensure there's more than just body cameras that 'happen to shut themselves off' filming the altercations.

I thought Cops was amusing when I was 17.  Now I think it's just sad.  You should not be watching people at their lowest point even if it is fun to ask "Does any man in Florida own a shirt?  Can't someone just put a shirt on for once?"

It still amazes me to watch the differences in the show from the early 90s to the present. It shows the evolution of the "Command and Control" procedures so common today.

FOX is also working on a show where Donald Trump randomly shows up at one of his supporters' house and has sex with his wife and daughter and, for a small fee, the guy can watch.

In the 90's it was good for a laugh at the absolute human garbage they would film getting arrested. You always knew how it would end up when they would get a domestic dispute call and it rolled into a trailer park and the guy would just be sitting on the curb while a methed out bleach blonde trailer queen in flip flops, cut off jean shorts, a dirty tube top and a cigarette wagging from her lips was hover over him yelling obscenities.

It usually ended with them both in the back of separate cars, him for at one point losing his cool and backhanding her prior to the call, and her for being a crazy biatch that waited until the cops arrived to assault him, then assault the cops for trying to break her off.

I didn't watch very much of this show, but it seemed like whenever I did, it was some scrawny white trasher with no shirt and jeans getting hauled out of a trailer park for beating his wife/common law wife.  After getting searched, the dude usually had some rocks on him or some type of cheap drug.

No... Here's what WILL happen though...

When police execute another unarmed black man, the Fox News COPS will air a special episode dedicated to that city's police force and they will only show footage of cops struggling with those people. They will do everything to set the narrative that the cops who performed a summery execution had no choice in the matter and set the scene for the city to be warzone full of dangerous criminals and the cops will be made to look like super heroes.

From all the years I watched cops, all I figured out was that if you are wearing a cowboys jersey, you are really bad at running from the cops, and you are all sorts of suspicious. Or you called the cops because someone stole your drugs. So many cowboys jerseys.

I'm gonna be real happy when Xi, Putin, Bush and Trump die but it'll also be a great day when Murdoch dies... hopefully at the hands of a mob or raped to death by an emu.


Maybe a tag team?

It didn't take me long to realize most of those episodes seemed really scripted. And the amount of evidence and KAYFABE on that show made Frank Drebin look like a genius.

The later episodes got more dark and I switched over to more light hearted fare - like the Wire/ BB/ GoT/ WW

That was the concept behind Live PD. (with a slight delay). It honestly was a bit better than cops, up until that guy got shot.

Anytime someone conducts an on the street interview for laughs they only show you the most idiotic respondents.

Part is for the laughs, but the other part is to make us feel like the superior intelligence.

Same with this show. They only use the stops that promote the cops in a good light.....and even then you would see how different suspects were treated sue to race.

It's brainwashing....."look how nice our officers are. Look how well they handle themselves with unreasonable suspects"

Mediated reality to convince us that ACAB doesn't apply.
