A Lesson in Media Contradictions

So I'm sitting here flipping through channels because amazingly, even with over 800 channels to choose from there is still absolutely NOTHING to watch. Anyhoo, I come across "Hustle & Flow." It's a scene where D (the pimp) has just pimped Nola (a prostitute) so he can get an expensive microphone. She's pissed and hurt. He made her feel like an object. She wants a better life beyond being a convenient cash machine.

The viewer is made to understand. Feel Nola's pain. She's human. She has hopes, dreams and feelings. It's wrong for her to be made into an object for the pleasure of others. It's a powerful moment.

Then this commercial comes on...

.... sigh
