Considering the position expressed by many network and NBC employees on their programs regarding gun control and gun violence it seems hypocritical to broadcast shows such as “The Blacklist.”
On the two episodes we’ve watched, one involved the main character killing another by smothering the man with a pillow and the Nov. 25 episode showed very graphically the damage done by bullets on the human body and the blood splatter resulting from execution-style murders.
The argument that the show is on late does not mean that someone who may be influenced by viewing such violence could not see it — especially with the multitude of methods to record programs for viewing at a more convenient time.
Which is the true face of NBC — social voice or profits first? And why is this type of programming and its influence on teens not a focus of the administration given its history on gun control?
