Promoting Lying

Shows like ABC’s “Pretty Little Liar” and “The Lying Game” have gained in popularity since the day they hit the airwaves. It dawned on me recently, why are we promoting shows that encourage lying? Isn’t the world screwed up enough? We need to produce shows that are more wholesome (but wholesome does NOT have to mean boring!). It’s one thing to use things like lying or drinking alcohol in movies and shows to discourage this behavior in every day life, but it seems there is little educational purposes. It just seems ridiculous we produce so many shows with so much negative content. I don’t think it’s doing our society any favors.
