Ageist Drivel from CNN

CNN released an ageist program called “Inside the Secret Life of Teens”. According to the commercials from CNN, the show’s purpose is to show teens as malicious people. In reality, the only group of people who deserve a behind the scenes program are Baby Boomers. This group of people have a higher arrest rate for serious crimes than young people. A fitting program would be “Inside the Secret Life of Baby Boomers” for this reason. The reason why teens are being targeted by CNN is because TV networks want to spread false stereotypes about young people to make Baby Boomers look better than they really are. Mike Males has said this same thing over and over again. Networks bash young people because of how much ageism there is in this society.
