French Reality TV Angers Farmers

A French reality TV show has sparked protests by farmers. “La Ferme Celebrites – Celebrity Farm – sees 14 French celebrities live in a farmhouse for 70 days without running water or electricity. Tasks include sheep shearing, milking cows and tending as animals give birth. But the show, which attracts eight million viewers, has infuriated the Farmers’ Confederation, who consider the show ‘degrading’ to rural people.”
