Why is reality television built on such blatant gender and race stereotypes? Why are women and people of color represented so harmfully, and with so much bias, in popular culture? What is “Frankenbite” editing, how many hours of tape are shot for every hour of reality TV aired, and how much cheaper is it to produce a reality show than a scripted program? Is it true that networks are simply “giving people what they want,” or is reality TV really the result of media consolidation, media economics, and stealth advertising?
Find out at Bluestockings, NYC’s leading indy progressive bookstore, at the first official stop on Pozner’s book tour. For more information, seehttp://www.RealityBitesBackBook.com
