Woman killed for rejecting proposal on chat show

Woman killed after rejecting TV marriage proposal - Guardian Unlimited

This is a story about a woman who was murdered in Spain after rejecting a marriage proposal from her violent partner, delivered on a TV chat show which sounds a lot like the Springer, Trisha or Sally Jessy genre. Apparently they did not check up on his background because they have privacy rules and they don’t do such investigations. It’s not the first time someone has died as a result of something they told someone on a show like this - I recall reading of a man who revealed that he had a crush on his male neighbour, and was shot dead by him a few days later.

Why do people go on these shows? Surely the format is so old now that if someone invites you on, you already know that something is seriously wrong in your family and you really don’t want to wait until you are in front of an audience to hear it. It makes me wonder how many of the guests are authentic - the stories they come out with are of such self-destructive stupidity that they make you scream at the TV - but if it’s a life or death situation, perhaps faking them would be better than getting people to scream at each other for public entertainment and then play the social worker or counsellor.
