What is it with GMA and their infatuation with polygamist families or families with
20+ children? Today their polling question has to do with legalizing polygamy and their guests were a man and his three wives, two of whom are sisters. A few weeks ago they had on another such family and then there was the Kellys who were billed as the Duggar's competitors.

1. Ratings. Apparently this stuff brings in audiences.
Ratings are the only things that matter.

2. What's so hard to figure out. MSM uses freak shows to get people to tune in.
They want to sell advertising and watch as long as possible for exposure to the advertising. They don't want to just give us the headlines and send us on our merry way.
