Skip to comments.Sarah Palin's Program is NOT Reality TV

I am confident that by now, you have all read about Sarah Palin's Alaska program. I'm also confident that you have all been witness to the MSM's overtime/overkill effort to destroy Sarah Palin's reputation.
One of the barrage of tactics the MSM has been resorting to is to brand Sarah Palin's Alaska as a "reality tv" show. Some of your have been guilty of assisting the MSM by posting stories which include the description of this particular show as being a "reality" program.
I would like to encourage all my fellow Freepers out there to call the show what it really is; a travel program. Let us refrain from helping the MSM in their consumed desire to destroy the Palin family's reputation and political endeavors.
I watched it. It is more about her family enjoying the outdoors in Alaska. It is a reality show.
It was good.
It's a miracle!
Bzzzzt. It's a DOCUMENTARY.
I watched it for about ten to fifteen minutes last night, and I’ve got to be honest: I like governor Palin a lot, but it made me a little uncomfortable, because it felt to me like I was watching a reality TV show. I don’t think I’m going to be watching any of the rest of it.
Well, I wouldn’t describe this as a miracle. It just speaks of Sarah Palin’s support.
We all know that reality tv is the trailer park trash of television programming. It’s not something that is highly regarded by anyone, which is precisely why the MSM’s trying to brand this show as such.
Too bad the only ones listening to them are the choir.
IT IS FIRST “REAL” REALITY SHOW. COMMON!
Don’t be thick about it!
They waited about 45 minutes just for Sarah to complete that “climbing” task.... WHICH IS “REAL”!
Palin family is really amazing, coz they are just ONE OF US!
Bahh, it most certainly is a reality show that is why I turned it off!
And I am a fan of Palin!
This isn’t a reality. It’s about Alaska.
You wouldn’t describe Leave It To Beaver as a reality show, now would you?
Would you describe The Crocodile Hunter as a reality show? No, because it isn’t. Neither is Sarah Palin’s Alaska.
I agree with the opinion in the article.
However, I would like to point out that REALITY TV shows are nothing of the kind.
They are just TV shows shot on ‘constantly moving remote locations’.
The final ‘cut’ that appears on TV has very little to do with the reality of what happened during the filming. All the contestants are pre-screened and selected for ‘niches’ of popular viewing. Every one of them knows they are being filmed. So... their behavior is based on that knowledge.
The ones that imply “they don’t know we are filming this” are simply liars.
I watched and it was awful. Won’t waste my time on it again.
“Too bad the only ones listening to them are the choir.”
Funny, seems the choir is on FR lately too
“It’s a DOCUMENTARY.”
Which can be presented as a travel program.
My wife and I watched last night. It is a travel show, hosted by a person of remarkable energy and character. She comes across as being...well,...NORMAL. She is indeed one of us, and very genuine.
My wife, who detests politics, loves Sarah Palin for all those reasons.
So what if she struggled at rock climbing. I don’t know many other people who would air land on a glacier, walk across it and go try to climb the rock. More power to her.
I really didn't expect a sarcasm tag to be necessary.
“I want to show America, Alaska and how beautiful it is, I want America to see Alaska's many wonders....” paraphrased. The show speaks for itself. Watch it!
If the show focused solely on Palin’s family enjoying all of Alaska’s wonders, I’d call it a travel show. When we are shown the inside of her house and the stalker next door’s house, the show crosses the line to reality TV. Nonetheless, I don’t think the labels matter.
I wasn’t being sarcastic. Did not mean to offend, so my apologies.
Its a stupid show and a really dumb PR stunt imo.
