Daddy Warpig called it misery-porn, and that's a tight a summary as any I've seen. It blindly accepts the lies of moral relativism and the belief that science negates religion, often at the same time. It ignores real, fundamental truths about men and women and man's place in the universe in favor of a stunted view of mankind as both insignificant and the center of all things, again at the same time. It ignores the reality of mankind as fallen from God's grace and his struggles to even understand his place in the universe. It favors sex over romance and violence in service of their lies. It's many things, clever, erudite, and even technically savvy, but it isn't very good for you.

Why would anyone eat mass produced garbage that costs more instead of taking a chance on cheaper fare that's probably a lot more filling and healthy? Marketing is the only answer that comes to mind, and its the only explanation for the continued existence of the brain poison peddlers of the Big 5 Publishing houses.
This isn't a very nice blog post. It's really not fair to McDonalds to compare them to trash mongers like the Big 5 publishing houses. McDonald's produces low cost fare that makes for a fine sometimes food. Maybe it's better to compare Big Publishing to Big Tobacco. They both sell products that kill you - one your soul, the other your body. They both rely on savvy marketing to convince that they are the coolest kids in the room. They both suffer when consumers notice what they are really selling in their packages.
Yeah...Big Publishing is much more like Big Tobacco - stay away from it kids! It might seem cool, but it's not healthy, and over time it makes you smell funny.
