This is awesome programming

Watching Steve Wilkos’ show from Thursday. Megan, the mother confessed to police that she tried to smother her 2-year old child. She then recanted her story and has gone on Steve Wilkos’ show to prove her innocence. As we know at BSP HQ, that’s a bad recipe. That’s a thing that lands guests in prison.


Megan spends her time on stage yelling at the child’s father, who has apparently left her. The dude just says “she did it.” Uh oh.

After Wilkos reads the polygraph results, which tell us Megan is guilty as hell of abusing her child, she goes screaming off the stage. She’s wailing while Steve tells the father Megan is a piece of crap. Megan is making too much noise back there, so Steve leaves the stage to throw Megan out of the studio. Steve tells her she’s a terrible mother and she’s going to jail. No she’s not. She’s going to prison.

There is a difference between jail and prison. Jail >>>> prison.  Jail is where you go after you get caught drunk driving. Someone inevitably goes to bail you out. Prison is where you go after you get convicted and sentenced for vehicular manslaugher.  The state decides when it’s time for you to leave.

Sometimes I’m amazed Wilkos can take the results of his show, even though he’s a cop. I get a laugh out of people thinking they can beat the polygraph; I’ve had multiple polygraphs and unless you’re a complete psychopath, it’s not happening. Steve Wilkos represents excellent programming because he has an unending stream of guests coming to his show. There’s an unending stream of people with screwed up lives who just want to put it on the air.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
