A sneak peek…

My Daily Muse column for tomorrow is all about guilty pleasures, so I thought I’d mention my favorite reading on that theme: Jennifer L. Pozner’s Reality Bites Back: The Troubling Truth About Guilty Pleasure TV. Pozner deconstructs the popular tropes of the genre, those “desperate women and douchey dudes,” to reveal the production secrets and common editing manipulations that shape the ostensibly “real-life” storylines on our television. Of course, they’re fake! For more information, see Pozner’s website and her hilarious webisode series, “Reality Rehab with Dr. Jenn.”
