MTV has made it their business to get the most depraved, idiotic, willing-to-swap-bodily-secretion degenerates they can find, and give them a national platform to showcase what an affront they are to human decency (Jersey Shore, Teen Mom, The Hills, etc.) Following in that vein, the new series Buck Wild is set to premiere January 3, but not if U.S. Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia can stop it.
According to the Huffington Post:
Manchin’s office sent a letter to the president of the network saying the show profits off of “poor decisions of our youth.” And plays to ugly, inaccurate stereotypes about the people of his home state.
The network ordered 12 episodes of the show last fall, and a trailer shows the cast drinking and swearing, four-wheeling and fighting, even filling a dump truck with water and using it as a swimming pool. It was shot in Sissonville and Charleston.
No Senator, I would say that sounds like a fairly accurate depiction, but they better make quick with the incest, moonshine and road-kill barbeque or I might call fraud. Makes you wonder what lucky, backwoods yokel is anxiously waiting in the wings giving blow-jobs for her chance to become the next Snooki. Ahh, the stuff dreams are made of.
