<p>Without a hint of irony, the most superficial network news show in ABC&rsquo;s <em>Nightline </em>mocked Tuesday&rsquo;s Fox Business Network Republican debate on their early Wednesday morning installment as nothing more than a <strong>&ldquo;reality show&rdquo; </strong>along the lines of <em>The Bachelor </em>and <em>Survivor</em><strong> &ldquo;where the stakes couldn&rsquo;t be higher.&rdquo;</strong></p>

<p>Leading off the show, correspondent David Wright hyped that the fourth debate in Wisconsin was<strong> &ldquo;a reality show where the stakes couldn&#39;t be higher&rdquo; </strong>in a larger race where <strong>&ldquo;[t]his time next year right about now, in fact, one of the apprentices on that stage will either win 270 electoral votes....or not, one year from this week, it&#39;s all over.&rdquo;</strong></p>
