This week Matt and Eddie are looking at how everyone's favorite guilty pleasure, reality TV, and financial news media are actually similar.
The guys first dig into why people love reality TV so much. What's the first reality TV show you first remember watching? This genre has actually been around for a while now, but when it first premiered, people didn't know how to classify it. It was never exactly a documentary, but it's not completely scripted.
The guys then look into how financial news media seems to have taken a cue from reality TV. The focus turned from news to eliciting emotions.
