"Moment of Truth": What "Nervous Breakdown"?

By admin Published: March 6, 2008

Last week I mentioned that promos for the unhappy-wife episode of "Moment of Truth" appeared to have misleading editing, with an answer to one question in the show being put with a different question.

This week, promoting another guest's appearance in what it called "the most powerful episode of the season," a much-televised promo declared, "This mother of four is overwhelmed by the pressure of the questions and suffers a nervous breakdown." No such thing happened on the air.

While that mother of four struggled with some questions, and gave a couple of answers that would probably lead to conversations with her husband, she weathered every storm on her way to $100,000 in winnings.

I know that promos are designed to heighten interest in a show. Still, there should be a limit to what they can get away with -- using the drama in the programs they promote instead of creating their own.
