Remember that pack of teenage girls behaving like lunatics and videotaping the beating they planned and dished out on another girl?
Well, the supposed "ringleader" of that group has been bailed out of jail (for $30,000) by...Dr. Phil! Supposedly so that the Dr. Phil Show will have exclusive rights to interview her.
It takes a lot of gall to glorify adolescent violence (purely in the name of ratings) and then decry it as a social evil.
I don't know if there's a TV Personality Scumbag award, but if there is, I'm sure Dr. Phil is a shoe-in.
