Because sex, violence, drugs, and popular music sells. If people took everything more morally no one would buy anything.

What is going on with TV today? I can't seem to turn to CBS, NBC, ABC or FOX without seeing some innocent civilian being the victim of crime on some crime show, or see cops chasing criminals or see people argue and fight each other on a court show..........
What's going on?!?
Comedy series in which Charlie Brooker uses a mix of sketches and jaw-dropping archive footage to explore the gulf between real life and television.
From hysterical public information films to grisly crime dramas, terror spills out of almost every channel. As Charlie explores TV's approach to fear, you won't know whether to laugh or scream.
In a compelling and at times disturbing series, Dr Michael Mosley explores the brutal history of experimental psychology.
To begin, Michael traces the sinister ways this science has been used to try to control our minds. He finds that the pursuit of mind control has led to some truly horrific experiments and left many casualties in its wake. Extraordinary archive captures what happened - scientists systematically change the behaviour of children; law abiding citizens give fatal electric shocks; a gay man has electrodes implanted in his head in an attempt to turn his sexuality.
Michael takes a hallucinogenic drug as part of a controlled experiment to try to understand how its mind-bending properties can change the brain.
This is a scientific journey goes to the very heart of what we hold most dear - our free will, and our ability to control our own destiny.
