Big Brother accused of editing out racism, sexism and other “difficult subjects”

  • Fans watching the live feed are seeing something totally different from what is portrayed, with real-world controversies out, says David Canfield. “While Big Brother has the material for juicy, interesting drama and the impetus to stay relevant, the priority remains clean narratives that don’t provoke or offend — soap opera romances, against-the-odds heroes, loudmouth funny guys, cartoonish villains,” he says. “Only when the real, disturbing drama happens do we see the structure for what it is, as something both deeply disingenuous and surprisingly limited.”
