Hollywood's value system

Michael Medved is obviously an intelligent, concerned American, not a right-wing fanatic, and I agree with him wholeheartedly. As the parent of a teenager and two younger children, I am constantly challenged with the "everybody does it" and "everybody has it" mentality that is fed into children via prime-time television. Television seems to excel in taking an element of society and portraying it as mainstream. Talk shows especially try to outdo each other with pieces on bizarre people and situations whil e overlooking the real drama and heroics in common people's lives. Pat Bennett, Summit, N.J.
