Media's two Americas: "Buckwild" vs. "Washington Heights"
Two Americas exist in the imaginings of popular entertainment and media. One is a multicultural utopia cosseted in mawkish high-mindedness; the other makes Thomas Hobbes description of humanity as "poor, nasty, brutish," sound overly optimistic.

Although neither one of the Americas depicted is correct, they sure have a way of keeping peopleís attention, lol. Everywhere I turn people are talking about Washington Heights or Buckwild; even my office at DISH. But after the last episode of Buckwild, all of my friends on Twitter are certain that BW is the most entertaining of the two. Normally I have had to wait until at least Monday to get their opinions since I donít have computer, but that all stopped after I got a DISH Hopper. It lets me logon to Twitter so I can chat about the latest news and gossip without ever leaving the room. And with how many sports, news, and other applications it has, I have yet to run out of things to talk about.
