Clips from Marion Barry's reality television pilot

By Washington Post editors

Congress Heights on the Rise, the D.C. blog that broke the news that Marion Barry had signed to film a pilot for his own reality television show, has another scoop.

It's got video clips from the possible reality show. One clip includes footage from the D.C. Council meeting in which Barry's council colleagues voted to censure him. A second clip features Barry's reaction to news coverage of his censure.

America loves a good train wreck on TV.... instant ratings. its funny that one person's misery is another persons entertainment baffles me. Reality TV si the reason for lots of things today... get rich quick, 15 minutes of fame. The Kardashians have done nothing to be famous for the simple fact that Kim banged a black guy and leaked the tape ... her dad (RIP) wasa high profile attorney that got fame from the OJ trial. The Jersey Shore are aspiring reality star rejects (Real World etc...) Hell, snookie appeared on the another MTV show that lasted all of 30 seconds....Now we have to see a cracked out, crooked politician pretending on TV... great, wonderful... more emmy winning production.

Just when you thought he couldn't stoop lower...

This sounds like another means for Mr. Barry to enrich himself in a way that further embarrasses our city. He has lost his earmark money/kickbacks and had his conducted referred to the U.S. Attorney, so reality television will be his latest way to grease palms and increase his own political visibility.

Has he no shame? Won't someone implore him to retire with whatever shred of dignity he has left to the District after so many scandals?
