In a case that gives a dark new twist to reality television, a popular Brazilian crime show host has allegedly been commissioning murders to boost his ratings. The TV host was the one to create acts and then ordered that the crimes be committed


Brazilian authorities say drug dealers and other hoodlums were dying to get on Wallace Souza's TV program. Literally.

Souza, a state legislator and former host of a police TV show called "Canal Livre," also was a drug trafficker, officials say. And to get rid of the competition -- and drive up ratings -- he would order that criminal rivals be killed and then would have his camera crews arrive first on the scene, authorities say.

I was agog at this. Quite literally making the news - didn't some Bond villain do this - cause crime to boost ratings?

There's a good article on this here: Crime Show Host Suspected of Ordering Killings to Boost Ratings
