Holding up a mirror.

Congratulations to the psychiatrist who was on the BBC 10 o'clock news tonight.

Talking about Susan Boyle he talked about her and then explained why talent/reality programmes deliberately choose weird, dysfunctional, ugly, eccentric people - "because unfortunatley (turns to camera and points at it), those are the people you want to watch!"

If only they'd have let him finish with "perhaps it's not Susan Boyle who needs help, perhaps it's the audience that 120 years ago would have flocked to see a Victorian Freak Show"

I dare say he's in for some flak from some members of the public.
