Thanks to: Duck Decoy | Ten Miles Square | The Washington Monthly. January 09, 2014 12:00 PM Duck Decoy How the entertainment industry made the Duck Dynasty family into rednecks. By Daniel Luzer

My Comment: No one’s saying you can’t be a redneck without a ZZ Top beard but here’s what happens when there’s profit to be made from hyperbole. Gay bashing is profitable too, I guess. It’s enough to make one question the intelligence of the general public. Duh.

But here is Phil’s son Jase (the show’s “laid-back, self-professed redneck”) and his wife a few years ago

Here’s Jase today:

He’s not a redneck. He just plays one on TV.

His brother, Willie Robertson, is the CEO of Duck Commander. This is what he looks like:

This is what he used to look like:

    I think manipulation of the viewing public is a staple in these modern times.If you think what your watching is untouched and real your very gullible and misguided

    • True, but I still wonder how many people believe reality TV programming is “real.” My hope is that it’s mostly a case of 14 million viewers wanting someone ridiculous to laugh at. Manipulation has always been involved but I hope reality TV doesn’t influence how people actually think about relationships and issues.

        I would say most reality shows are as far from reality as you can get. I would say reality would come from documentary not these fabricated goldfish bowl shows which cherry pick situations to entice viewers. I am one who takes most of this drama with a pinch of salt
