Discovery Channel falsehoods

Postby 3Boys » Mon Aug 18, 2014 11:45 pm

I don't know about you, but up till recently I had considered the Discovery Channel to be reputable and credible. But several shows recently had raised some doubts about the quality of their programming. Digging around a little, these are some of the criticisms I have found;

Shark week falsehoods;
http://www.slate.com/blogs/wild_things/ ... nster.html

Amish Mafia staged;
http://lancasteronline.com/news/local/a ... b2370.html

Moonshiners dramatized;

It was some of the stuff about alien encounters that set me off with the really awful one sided presentation.

Anyway, viewer beware!

Cracking under raising the viewership pressure?
