More TV indoctrination; NBC's 'Stars Earn Stripes' dresses stars as Jack Booted Thugs

The network's new reality series featuring celebrities competing in military-esque challenges, "Stars Earn Stripes," is receiving backlash from nine Nobel Peace Prize Laureates, including Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
