Image of the Day: Americans Remain Highly Positive Toward Free Enterprise and Business Over Government

In what sometimes seems like an era of constantly expanding government and demonization of free markets, a recent Gallup poll offers refreshing news - Americans overwhelmingly view free markets positively, especially relative to the federal government:

Political candidates would be wise to emphasize this in an election year 2022, and elected leaders would be wise to translate Americans' preference into concrete action.

A contestant on the new VH1 reality series Dating Naked has filed a lawsuit claiming the viewers got more than she bargained for.

Jessie Nizewitz is suing the network's operator Viacom and two production companies for allegedly flashing her "private parts" during a playful wrestling match on the beach with a male contestant. In her lawsuit, which seeks $10 million in damages, the 28-year-old New York model claims she was assured that all of her privates would be blurred during the show. In her lawsuit, Nizewitz claims there was no blurring during that quick exchange, subsequently sparking an embarrassing outpour on social media.

"Although I went on this show knowing that I would be nude while taping it I was told that my private parts would be blurred for TV. If you watch an episode, you will see that the blur actually makes it less revealing than a bikini would. Obviously, I did not expect the world to see my private parts, this is not what I anticipated or what any other contestants on the show anticipated," Nizewitz said in a statement through her attorney.

According to news sources, VH1 and Lighthearted Entertainment had no comment, while Firelight Entertainment was not immediately available for a response.

"Plaintiff...was shocked, horrified and outraged to observe this intrusion into her privacy for all to see," reads the suit. "Immediately Plaintiff became subject to ridicule by those watching...Plaintiff has suffered and continues to suffer extreme emotional distress, mental anguish, humiliation and embarrassment...Defendants knew or reasonably should have known that broadcasting an individual's vagina and anus on national cable television would cause substantial and severe emotional distress."
