Jerry Springer: ‘I Am The Father Of The Destruction Of Western Civilization’


Talk show host Jerry Springer appeared on HuffPost Live yesterday and admitted to viewers that he may have a small part in the dumbing down of society. Alright, not exactly. Springer actually admitted a much bigger role, saying, “I am the father of the destruction of Western civilization.”

Springer said that his show had “no redeeming social value” and called it “stupid.” When pressed, he said that while his show is “fun to do,” it really is “stupid.”

“I enjoy it,” he added. “People obviously like it otherwise they wouldn’t watch it.”

Springer went on to discuss other “reality” TV shows and said “what we call reality shows today aren’t really reality.”
