My English essay - X factor is rubbish

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

´╗┐The extinction of music has initiated. Only doltish human beings can watch such an improbable TV show. Some crazy fools call it show for true talents; I call it a show for embryonic musicians who want a life full of fame for unmitigatedly no effort. It's for people who want to be famous but have no respect for their dignity in how they get there. It's also for people who think they're entitled to a record label deal if they have even a half-decent voice.

And more astoundingly, last year’s X Factor ITV1 shows are said to have brought in more than £75m in advertising, plus revenue from the public votes. Simon Cowell’s deceitful way of hypnotising us into dehumanised music and injecting us with virulent venom is slowly obliterating music. It must be forbidden from this universe. ...read more.
