Reality Television Shows Part 2

    In Reality Television: Oxymoron by George F. Will the article tells us about the way Will feels about reality television in a negative way. He believes that people do reality television shows to be greedy and to  make themselves look like complete and utterly fools on national television. Will states:
    The possible permutations of perversity programming- the proper name for what is called,
    oxymoronically, "reality television"- are as limitless as, apparently, is the supply of despicably greedy
    or spectacularly stupid people willing to degrade themselves for money.(290)
The author doesn't use metacommentary in the article but his title Reality Television: Oxymoron is a form of metacommentary titles. The templates that you use for metacommentary wasn't used in this article. Will gets straight to the point and explains himself through is clearly understanding statements.

  1. I extremely doubt the article has no metacommentary. Look more closely.
