TL;DR: How the producers run the show creates the toxic environment for bullying and the show taking no accountability for it was crap.
At no point did The Bachelor (showrunners/producers) take any accountability for their role in facilitating toxic environments. The show is specifically run and designed around the notion of having a "villain" (or villains). You can't guarantee an engagement or a happily ever after, but every single season, there will be multiple villains.
This becomes even worse when you consider producer-made drama. This can allow the producers to make contestants out to be worse then they are by either selective editing or behind the scenes manipulation. This means that the show is deliberately trying to make millions of people hate someone, just for the sake of views and narrative.
It's obvious, but important to note, the showrunners have complete control over what we the audience see. This season spent so much time focusing on conflicts. Champagne-gate for ex... keep reading on reddit ➡
Quite surprising. I expected them to edit that scene out. But I suppose that would lead to further backlash.
Is it even financially possible for this to happen?

So I was going through AEW's rating breakdowns since its debut and I noticed a trend with Moxley's segments. Not a single one has lost viewers. Proof is from WON. Dave began covering viewership breakdowns from week 2:
W2: 10/9 Jon Moxley vs. Shawn Spears gained 27,000 viewers for a viewership of 1.1M
W3: 10/16 Gained 4.3% for a viewership of 1.014 as he teamed with Pac vs Omega/Page
W4: 10/23 Jon Moxley vs. Pac that went to a draw gained 34,000 viewers
W5: 10/30 The Jon Moxley/Peter Avalon angle and Moxley promo gained 9,000 viewers.
W6: 11/6 Mox joining in the brawl at the end of the go-home show to Full Gear, up 29K
W7: 11/13 AEW opened with a Kenny Omega promo, Jon Moxley vs. Michael Nakazawa and a Moxley promo and did 1,080,000 viewers and 600,000 in 18-49
W8: 11/20 Q8 Jon Moxley vs. Darby Allin – 899,000 viewers (up 83,000), 508,000 in 18-49 (up 52,000)
W9: 11/27 30 second backstage segment (No numbers available)
W10: 12/4 Jon Moxley vs. Joey Janela – 836,000 viewers (up... keep reading on reddit ➡
Time and time again, when the Bible is discussed, probably the most upvoted response is something along the lines of “that’s only an issue for biblical literalists.” And sure, sometimes that’s true. If someone criticizes a metaphorical story because it doesn’t line up with history, it’s valid to say that the story isn’t meant to be history. But I think the response has become so ubiquitous that it’s starting to bleed into areas where it’s a red herring rather than valid.
It is invalid when trying to defend internal inconsistencies within the same story. For example, say someone were to criticize Genesis by pointing out that Cain and Abel were the only two recorded children of Adam and Eve, and yet when Cain is banished, he goes to live with foreigners in their cities. That’s an internal inconsistency, since how can there be other humans? In cases like this, it’s not enough to say the account is a story, since within the story’s own narrative it doesn’t make sense.
*It is in
Microsoft’s revenue guidance for the More Personal Computing unit had already been wider than usual to account for impact from the health situation in China, where the coronavirus had first been identified.
Apple announced that it wouldn’t be able to hit its own revenue guidance last week.
I'd prefer if it ended like how Flair interrupted Fozzy back in the day, a crazy bloodied old man tearing down the set
that was absolutely incredible
Just go check by yourself:
EDIT 1: NBC blocked their own video!
EDIT 2: I found another source for a part of the missing segment
No one wants to see Tom Brady in a Niners uniform other than the east coast media. They shot down their own case when they compared Brady and Jimmy G's season ranking for stats. There's not a single one where Tom Brady is better.
Edit: for those who didn’t watch, ESPN had a 5 minute long night time segment about how Tom Brady coming home to the 49ers “makes sense”. With lots of footage of Tom Brady as a kid wearing a Joe MONTANA jersey.

This new EoE segment had themes similar to documentaries about ultra-marathon runners, athletes, etc. It's cool seeing semi-average people pushing themselves that far. Furthermore, there wasn't a huge need to make it so thematic and staged like past EoE challenges.
Even though it isn't necessarily very "survivor," it was entertaining nonetheless. If I were to compare it to an average reward challenge, it was way more riveting. I didn't mind the length of it, and it adds new flavours to survivor.
He is so plugged in to what's going on in Dallas. He's been around long enough to know how a lot of things got to the way they are. He speaks with first hand authority instead of idle speculation or arms length information.
I posted some positive kudos for how Vietnam is handling Covid-19 the other day and a large number of comments were about how the west never has positive news about Vietnam, just negative. I am happy to report that mainstream in the West are saying positive things about your country. Check out this segment on the virus from John Oliver. I have seen other news shows on TV here say positive things as well.
Edit: you will need a VPN and pretend to be in the USA to view. This is what I had to do here in Canada.
There’s a number of people on the roster that live in California including the Bucks so they should put together some matches in Cali using the people who live nearby to limit as much travel as possible. At least for this week that could work but if this goes on for weeks/months then who knows.
Just saw Chris Matthews announced his resignation today. I know he's been under scrutiny for a while, but damn... that just hurts after watching him bumble all over himself in that segment
I know Killer gets kicked in the junk but that story was insanity :
(spoiler ahead if you want to go back and listen)
Killer had bought tix to last nights Mavs game for himself and wife, and his brother and his wife.
Brother confirmed on Monday they were in.
Brother never shows for dinner and his wife and her father show up to the game.
Husbands wife barely speaks to Killer and her dad barely says much more.
Awkward night for sure.
At the end of the night brothers wife asks Killer if he has talked to his brother. He says no and she tells him he needs to.
Killer finally connects with his brother who had not been responding to texts since confirming they would be at the game. They talk and Killer learns that an hour after his brother confirmed, his brother’s wife filed for divorce!
Brother’s wife was in charge of the phone bill and cancelled his plan. He couldn’t get a hold of Killer to update.
Final blow: she wanted to adopt a dog recently so they did and then she lef... keep reading on reddit ➡
Last week AEW Dynamite had a main event of Darby Allin and Jon Moxley vs. Sammy Guevara and Chris Jericho. This was very exciting because it was taking the two most over guys in the company against an incredibly talented up-and-comer and a legend, and was also giving the fans more of what they got at Revolution because both sets of opponents faced off there. What AEW decided to do on paper, was take their new champion out of the main event completely as he was making his entrance, denying fans what looked to be a great matchup. What resulted was an incredibly compelling match that made just about all of the competitors look great, thanks to the writing going and the performances given by each wrestler.
The start of the show had Jon Moxley speaking on Dynamite for the first time as Champion. He was interrupted by Jericho and the Inner Circle, where Jericho ended up guaranteeing Moxley wouldn't walk out of Dynamite on his feet. Jericho wagered he would stay off TV for 60 days if this wa... keep reading on reddit ➡
