Akbar: Hypocrisy of The Messenger


Psychologist, Dr. Naim Akbar, discusses the hypocrisy of a former vice-president’s speech, regarding family values, the 1992 LA Riots, and the TV sitcom Murphy Brown.

On May 19, 1992, the 44th vice-president gave a speech to the Commonwealth Club of California on the subject of the Los Angeles riots. In the speech he blamed the violence on a decay of moral values and family structure in American society. In an aside, he cited the fictional title character in the television program Murphy Brown as an example of how popular culture contributes to a “poverty of values”

Quote:
“It doesn’t help matters when primetime TV has Murphy Brown—a character who supposedly epitomizes today’s intelligent, highly paid, professional woman—mocking the importance of fathers, by bearing a child alone, and calling it just another ‘lifestyle choice’ ”
