Worse Than the Mob

Business is evil...

According to a study by the Media Research Center that examined 129 episodes of 12 major network shows during the May and November sweeps of 2005, corporate folks were 21 times more likely to commit a kidnapping or murder than mobsters, five times more likely than terrorists, and four times more likely than gang members. And if that's not enough of a black eye for the business community, Kevin Spacey -- one of a growing roster of Oscar winners who aren't ashamed of a comic book adaptation (and why should they be?) -- says he based his Superman Returns' villain, Lex Luthor, on Enron's Kenneth Lay.
