I just don't understand how this can be in the newspaper. Is this article really a self-reflection from Carmen Rasmusen on whether she should go on another reality show? Or is it more about John Peter Lewis going back? In either case, should it really be in the newspaper? I don't think so.

Carmen mostly writes blogs for the DN. This probably should've been classified under one of her blog postings...

The fact that you read shows that it should be in the newspaper.

What a bunch of vain drivel.

"The fact that you read shows that it should be in the newspaper?"

The fact that I read? Or do you mean that the fact that I read it? I am assuming the second because the first one does not make sense.

I read it because I was hoping that it was a critique about why reality tv is so bad for the nation. I was disappointed. What was the point? There was none. This article belongs in Carmen's diary. Not in a newspaper.

If the Deseret News wants to keep this type of stuff front and center, then they should not be surprised by their eventual demise.

Sorry to hear about the disappointment you felt when the article was not about why reality television is bad for the nation. I know how disappointing it can be when we hear an opinion that does not confirm our own or read an article that is about something we are not interested. But, hey, it's a big newspaper. Something for everyone--the politically minded and the couch potato.

" I know how disappointing it can be when we hear an opinion that does not confirm our own ".

I am assuming this is sarcasm. That is not why I read newspapers. I read to learn, and become aware of critical issues. I think that reality tv is a big problem worth mentioning as a problem, not as news. It is really dumbing down America when we focus on things like this.
I have no problem reading opinions contrary to my own. I have a problem reading something that is so insignificant, that it would be better if it were just left out.
