American Idol: Can We Move On Now?

I was once an American Idol fan — first season, until I interviewed Christina Christian after her breakdown/collapse, and realized how packaged and damaging the show is. It’s nice to hear people finally coming out and speaking out about how scripted this “reality” is — and how patently unfair to performers. And racist. And … oh don’t get me started. Kudos, Ju’Not. Will critics finally stop apologizing for this travesty?
