Miss America Misleading America?

Happy hump day to all! Here is what every Wednesday needs; humor, fact-finding, and an honest comment from Donald Trump thrown in there that you can’t really terribly mad about because you already knew the truth.  At least he didn’t hide it. For the record, I’m not anti pageant, if that is what you want to do with your life then go for it and make the most of it!

This is more about the convoluted steps an organization has gone through to create the numbers they want, knowing the wording is misleading to the majority of viewers.  I am getting a degree in public relations. We study how to craft the best messages for our cause, and I didn’t catch the wording either.  Congratulations Miss America public relations department, way to keep it above-board and transparent with those numbers, you charitable organization you.

Call it what it is people, that is all I am saying. You all weigh the  numbers and the facts and go out and check facts decide for yourself.  I love reading comments and responses so let me know what you think!

Here is the link to the “John Oliver: Miss America Pageant” video, it will open in a new window. If you would like the link to paste into your browser it is at the bottom.

Disclaimer: there is some language, majority of which is edited out. The video is worth watching and hilariously unsettling all at once.
