Peter Funt (‘TV on trial?’ July 17 Tribune) has written a fine analysis of the decline of television; what could possibly be better for the media’s bottom line than a reality show with unpaid performers, no script writers, no sets, etc. — just a film crew?

I accept the fact that reality TV is here to stay, but that crap pales in comparison to trial coverage — last time I checked, talking heads didn’t fill every off-hour with interviews and opinions of the most recent episode of “Duck Dynasty”.

Enough already.
