ABSTRACT
This article considers the objections of U.S. Education Secretary William Bennett and Senator Joseph Lieberman against daytime talk shows in the U.S. Daytime talk shows in the 1990s features guests who are engaged in some dispute, usually rooted over a perverse sexual habit. In these shows, the guests will inevitably fight over it and in the end, will be restrained by security guards. According to Bennett and Lieberman, six percent of people watching these shows are under eleven years old. However, Bennett and Lieberman failed to address the concern that these shows may offer an opportunity on the future of diversity-dominated America.
