Kitty, I just happened upon this thread while waiting for the feeds to come back up. This is an awesome letter that you have written!Originally Posted by kitty
After the frustration of watching tonight's show, I would love to see CBS bombarded with phone calls, e-mails, letters, etc. objecting to the way they are so obviously editing the Fraudship to look so much better than the Sovs. This is just making me sick!
Out of boredom, I went into one of the CBS chat rooms for BB a bit ago, and there are sooooo many pro-Maggie people in there I can't believe it. When I tried to tell them how different she really is, I was attacked for not supporting ER nurses, how wonderful medical people are for helping everyone in New Orleans, etc., etc. I couldn't believe it! I hadn't said a word about the medical profession, or the many wonderful people helping with the hurricane relief. They just couldn't separate the fact that Hagg is an ER nurse, and therefore must be a wonderful person. Unbelievable!
All of us that watch the live feeds know how she really is, along with the fact that she says she hates most of her patients. It's disgusting! Sadly, I'm afraid that the vast majority of viewers out there that are only seeing the program and not the live feeds are believing the same things that those in that the chat room tonight are.
Is this CBS's easy way out to provide a good ending by making the Hagg out to be some kind of great, good person, maybe even a heroine, if you will, for being an ER nurse, especially in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina? Ugh!
I'm contacting CBS by phone Monday morning and then will go from there. *Sigh* I don't know if it will do any good, but maybe it will help me feel better by expressing my feelings about this sham they have going on. Afterall, if they're going to edit to this extreme, then what is the point of having the live feeds? This is just way too frustrating!
Thanks for letting me vent, all!
ETA: Anyone know if this has been brought up on House Calls by any chance?
