American Idol Scandal
To be honest, the whole American Idol thing has completely passed me by. I've never watched a single episode of it (though I have spent some time listening to William Hung... I don't know why). But it didn't surprise me to read that American Idol's voting system is essentially a sham, highly vulnerable to manipulation by gamblers.

Reality shows are the final sign of the coming apocalypse...
or proof that most people are really not that bright.

Like we really care if someone wants to eat cow parts or win a singing contract that will take them nowhere. Reality TV has no point whatsoever.
