There you have one tiny part of the problem, folks:
"Entertainment is about conflict". (There's a bigger problem
than "conflict" and "entertainment", but I'll focus on this
small point).

I won't be satisfied until we have "Entertainment Funerals"
filled with humor, truth and lies (conflict) for deceased news
and documentary producers. When they die, the aggrieved will be
on hand to deliver eloquent anti-eulogies at their funerals, for
entertainment and conflict purposes of the aggrieved, and to
offer a more balanced perspective of the deceased. The funeral
would be carried on television, of course. The word "NOVA" comes
to mind...

I'd be happy to put my ass in a seat for that production - even
if I have to bring my own popcorn!
