The Passion of Nicholas Berg
Televising the execution of an innocent. Since the American love affair with the death penalty shows no sign of abating - even the execution of innocent people - think what a TV programmer's dream a televised execution would be. The marketing opportunities! The ad breaks between each attempt to throw the switch on sparky or the next vial of poison being injected! The Passion of the Christ box office would be broken! Why only let the Arab web media have all the fun, when there are death rows of inmates ready for the ultimate in reality TV.
