I sincerely doubt anyone has watched Shark Week, ever, and expected serious scientific analyses of sharks.

Shark Week is a reality show cash grab coasting off the success of Jaws. It's been around that long.

One person says stupid sh*t and Fix has programming for an entire week.

"Negative portrayal of sharks?"

Sorry, but while it is acknowledged that sharks have threatened populations and conservation efforts need to be made, you're not going to do anything to dispel most people of the notion that sharks are scary.

You're talking about sometimes very large predators with rows of teeth that can swim faster than a lot of boats. A creature that, were you to come into contact, your life could be completely at its mercy.

It's okay to be for conservation and acknowledge that for most folks, the best place to be is as far the fark away from a shark as possible.

People in Asia catch sharks and cut off their fins. Then they throw the shark back in to die.

It is getting harder and harder to tell if things are Onion articles or real ones.
 
2022-12-07 6:58:48 AM  
A large portion of Fox News' reporting is simply summarizing other media reports and then guffawing at it as stupid and woke.  It's like those articles that just repeat a bunch of Tweets.  It's really cheap and easy "journalism".

Link to the original article. . .it was not an Onion piece.

Oops. . .forgot the tag line

Researchers say Discovery's programming overwhelmingly featured White men as experts while emphasizing negative messages about sharks
 
2022-12-07 8:40:06 AM  
The report highlighted a study done by the Public Library of Science led by Allegheny College biology professor Lisa Whitenack.

Even the study lacks diversity.

How is Shark Week different from anything else shown on Discovery?

Yes, the GOP didn't go on about Hillary's emails until the very minute they lost control of the House in January 2019 or anything, no siree.

You mean the asshole who blackmailed a country about to be invaded by Russia just so he could win re-election?

That's the guy you're defending. Jesus Christ... look at yourself.

Nope. I am defending no one. Your reading comprehension is deplorable. As is your self-awareness.

Jesus Christ... look at yourself.

Irony!

Blackmailing another country to become elected in one's home country... How does that work, exactly?
