Quote notes (#42)

Theodore Dalrymple on TV:

To my shame, and against my principles, I have occasionally agreed to appear on television, though even less frequently than I have been asked. I have found those who work for TV broadcasting companies to be the most disagreeable people that I have ever encountered. I far preferred the criminals whom I encountered in my work as a prison doctor, who were more honest and upright than TV people. 

In my experience, TV people are as lying, insincere, obsequious, unscrupulous, fickle, exploitative, shallow, cynical, untrustworthy, treacherous, dishonest, mercenary, low, and untruthful a group of people as is to be found on the face of this Earth. They make the average Western politician seem like a moral giant.

    Dalrymple is spot on, as usual. TV people don’t see people as people, but only props of a deliverable. The props don’t usually volunteer with perfect awareness that they are merely props, and what their prop-purpose is going to be. So you have to lie to the props. The best prop-liers rise to the top of the professionl
