Keeping it Real Valuable: Ethics in the Face of Profit, Power, and Celebrity Reality Television

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

April F. Smith explores some of the emergent ethical dilemmas resulting from African American entry into the media genres of reality television as a venue for attaining economic empowerment. What is at risk when African American publics continue to consume questionably unethical presentations and mediated spectacles that are widely viewed for their outrageous shock factor and sensationalist promotion of social dysfunction and combative conflict? In the end, Smith’s central question troubles how notions of the promise of celebrity tied economic empowerment, through the medium of reality TV, work to condition our everyday professional, political, and personal lives, while simultaneously challenging the necessity of ethical accountability and a historically-informed moral engagement in public life.
