Is Jerry Springer Fake
To the three Northeast Ohioans who are convinced that the knock-down dragouts on the Jerry Springer Show are authentic, tuck this upcoming segment into your “what-was-I-thinking?” file. On Monday, two well-worn drag queens from Cleveland flew to the show’s Chicago studios to bitch-slap each other in an episode that will air in about three weeks. The feud between the sixty-something “Uncle Vinny” and thirty-something “Robin Banks” stemmed from an ongoing love triangle with a – gasp! – straight dude. Knowing they could get the show to pay air fare and an overnight stay at a swanky Windy City hotel, this dynamic duo put their story on videotape and sent it in.
The producers salivated over it and invited them to air their queer quarrel in public. The best part is that they also promised that the show’s resident “minister,” the drunk and dissheveled Rev. Schnorr, would marry the “winner” and her paramour on stage. But there’s a glitch in this girls-gone-wild scenario. Vinny – who, sources say, is a “wrinkled-up, 100-year-old grandma” – and Banks are actually best of friends. And because they like to steal the spotlight whenever they can, they asked a gay pal to play the straight-man part. Sadly, due to a confidentiality clause in their contracts, nobody’s saying who tied the knot in the end. “No one in their right mind anywhere in this country is going to believe this bullshit,” says an intimate of both Vinny and Banks. “It’s just proof positive that nothing on Jerry Springer is for real.”

Jerry Springer Live
After 27 years and almost 4,000 episodes, The Jerry Springer Show has halted production. Officially, the series is in limbo, awaiting a new home, but the writing seems to be on the wall. Maybe the world has seen the last ripped wig, the last flung chair, the last horse sexy enough for a man to marry.
If so, oh well. The likelihood is that you didn’t even know The Jerry Springer Show was still being made. Like many people – including me, until this news broke – you probably assumed that it flamed out back in the early oos, shortly after TV Guide named it the worst TV show of all time. Your assumption, and mine, was that The Jerry Springer Show was such a relentless orgy of humanity’s worst impulses that audiences became too sad to keep watching it. But perhaps the opposite is true. Perhaps we just don’t need The Jerry Springer Show any more.
Society has been informed by Jerry Springer to a harrowing degree. Before it debuted in 1991, television was a much more sedate medium. With the possible exception of The Morton Downey Jr Show, the talkshows that predated Springer were calm affairs full of issues and discussion. Springer’s first episode – a family reunion show – tapped into this climate. But this relative tranquility wouldn’t last long; by the middle of the decade, the series dropped all pretence of civility in an all-encompassing quest for ratings.
It paid off. After broadcasting episodes with titles such as “I Slept with 251 Men in 10 Hours!” and “I’m a Breeder for the Klan”, The Jerry Springer Show quickly gained a reputation for tabloid excess. Success followed. In 1998 – the year of the infamous I Married A Horse episode – Springer briefly toppled Oprah in the ratings. A series of videos entitled Too Hot For TV, comprising unbleeped and unpixelated segments of the show, sold in their hundreds of thousands. The show was spoofed, with Springer’s willing participation, in Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me. The show became a full-tilt race to the bottom. It didn’t take long to get there.
In 1999, a 15-year-old boy in Florida was charged with the sexual battery of his eight-year-old half-sister, telling detectives that he had learned about incest from The Jerry Springer Show. A year later, the subject of a segment called Secret Mistresses Confronted was found dead hours after her episode was broadcast. Her ex-husband, who had appeared with her onscreen, was found guilty of her murder and sentenced to life imprisonment.
But the show ploughed on regardless. The same year as the “mistresses” episode, Springer signed a new $30m contract. He spent the next decade churning out episodes like “Oops … I Had Sex with a Tranny!”, “Midget Madness!” and “You’re a Virgin & I Can’t Wait”. But nothing this sensational can sustain itself. The show began to invent characters to hurl into the fray, such as the drunk and dishevelled Reverend Shnorr. From this point on, it was be a long, slow road to cancellation.
But look at everything that Springer has given us. The nasty, bear-baiting nature of his show bled into the mainstream and gave us Simon Cowell. Entire TV channels are devoted to witless Real Housewives catfights, each of which is a descendent of Jerry Springer. In the UK, we have Jeremy Kyle, who has kept all the exploitation of The Jerry Springer Show, but retained none of the self-deprecating wit. Springer saw himself as the ringleader of a circus, but Kyle sees himself as a moral crusader, which is much more dangerous.
The show’s sense of mob rule, where audiences are whipped up into a terrifying froth and urged to come down as hard as possible on subjects they know little about, has been replicated on Twitter. Springer’s “final thought”, which attempted to paper over the atrocities of a given episode with trite platitudes, is present in every motivational quote posted to Instagram. And what is Springer’s furious ratings-at-any-cost attitude if not a clear precursor to clickbait?
Worse still, we are living in an age that perfectly demonstrates the danger of giving fuel to bullies and bigots. Two weeks after Donald Trump was elected president, Springer tweeted: “Trump’s 1st cabinet picks: a white supremacist, a man with a history of bigotry & another who calls Islam a fake religion. Is this America?” It is, Jerry, and you helped build it.

Is Jerry Springer Dead
Jerry Springer is dead. At least that’s what the internet is saying. However, the host of the controversial Jerry Springer Show isn’t dead. He’s just the latest victim of an internet car crash death hoax that won’t die. Jerry Springer is just fine.
A report popped up again this week saying that Springer died in a car crash. Global Associated News said that Springer died in a single vehicle crash on Route 80 between Morristown and Roswell on January 22. The report says that Springer lost control of the vehicle and rolled the car, killing him instantly. It then says that memorial service plans will be announced and that he will have a closed casket due to his severe head trauma.
The report is false. Springer didn’t die in a car crash. Since there are so many details to the accident, it’s easy to believe that its real, but Global Associated News creates fake news reports.
A message at the bottom of the site reads: “FAKE… THIS STORY IS 100% FAKE! this is an entertainment website, and this is a totally fake article based on zero truth and is a complete work of fiction for entertainment purposes!”
Global Associated News allows people to enter a celebrity name into a generator, which then creates a fake news story about their death. Other celebrities have died in the same exact car crash before. For instance, Lakers basketball player Kobe Bryant died in the same exact car crash. He’s also fine.
Jerry Springer Politics
Springer ran for Congress in 1970. He was able to take 45% of the votes in a traditionally Republican district though he was unable to unseat incumbent Republican Donald D. Clancy. He went before the Senate Judiciary Committee to testify in support of the 26th Amendment which would help to lower the voting age. Springer, who was an army reservist at the moment he was announcing his candidacy, was called to active duty and deployed to Fort Knox three days after announcing his candidacy. After he was discharged from the millitary, he resumed his campaign.
He was later elected to the Cincinnati City Council in 1971. After hiring a prostitute and this information licked out to public, he resigned from his post. This event occurred in 1974. The event was uncovered when a police raid on a Fort Wright, Kentucky massage parlor found a check Springer had written pinned to a wall in their office with “for services rendered” written in the memo. He came clean at a press conference. Long-time Cincinnati newsman Al Schottelkotte pronounced Springer’s career over only for Springer to win back his seat in 1975 by a landslide. His honesty helped him so much.
In a post-election interview, Schottelkotte good-naturedly said that he had declared Springer’s career over. Springer told the newsman that he was glad that the comment was not correct. He was chosen to serve one year as mayor by the City Council in 1977. He could only serve one year as mayor due to a political arrangement at the time (though Cincinnati has since changed to direct election of its mayor) that required the Democrats to split the mayoral term with a local centrist group, the Charter Party, with whom the Democrats governed in an electoral alliance.
He supported changing the local election system so that council members would be elected by districts (thus better representing neighborhood interests) instead of “9X” at-large system while he served as a City Council and as a mayor, but his efforts (as well as those of everyone else, to date, who has supported such a change) did not meet with success. He sought the Democratic nomination for governor of Ohio in 1982. TV commercials for Springer’s campaign referenced his use of a check to pay a prostitute, saying that he was not afraid of the truth “even if it hurts.”
He failed to win the Democratic party’s nomination—finishing a distant third behind former Lieutenant Governor Richard F. Celeste and Ohio Attorney General William J. Brown, and his political career was put on hold. He played a major role in saving the historic Cincinnati Union Terminal in 1980’s. He considered running for the United States Senate in 2000 and 2004, but backed down due to negative associations with The Jerry Springer Show.
