Jerry Springer, the iconic host of The Jerry Springer Show, passed away after a brief illness at the age of 79. The talk show host rose to fame with his controversial program that ran for 27 years. Although Springer was known for his outrageous guests and dramatic confrontations, he once called his show “stupid” and regretted the effect he thought it had on American culture.

Springer’s journey to becoming the king of daytime talk shows was not an easy one. After running for Ohio governor in 1982, Springer tried his hand at commentary and eventually landed his own show. But it wasn’t what he intended it to be. “When we started, we were a serious show,” Springer said. “But then all of a sudden, it started going crazy. And when Universal bought us, they said, ‘From now on, only crazy.'”Despite the show’s immense success, Springer had his doubts. “No one’s watching because of me,” Springer said. “They’re watching because the stories are crazy and the people are outrageous.” Springer even went as far as to say that he “ruined the culture” with his show.


The show’s content was often criticized for its lack of morals and ethics, with guests like a Ku Klux Klan member, a mole person, and a man who married a horse. But Springer was adamant about having no censorship. “If I can do a show where I’m okay that neo-Nazis are on, then what am I going to say no to?” he said.

While the show brought fame and fortune, it also brought its fair share of challenges. Springer once had a neo-Nazi guest on his show, which resulted in an emotional outburst from the host. “I kind of lost it,” Springer said. “I’d lost my family in the Holocaust, so when he started talking about turning my mother into a lampshade or something, I lost it.”

Jerry Springer’s legacy will be forever associated with his eponymous show. While he may have regretted the impact it had on American culture, there’s no denying that it left an indelible mark on the talk show genre.

Ja Morant Escapes Major Injury: Game 2 Participation Uncertain

Memphis Grizzlies point guard Ja Morant is in the spotlight again, but this time for an injury that he sustained during Game 1 against the Los Angeles Lakers. Morant left the game early, clutching his right hand in pain after colliding with Lakers’ forward Anthony Davis. Fortunately, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania, X-rays and tests have confirmed that Morant did not fracture any bones in his hand, indicating a positive outlook for the young point guard.

Good News Bad News for Ja Morant with Injury to his Hand

Despite the good news, Morant’s participation in Game 2 remains uncertain. Charania reports that Morant’s injury primarily revolves around pain tolerance. Which means that his status will be determined by how well he can manage the pain. Morant himself admitted that he may not be able to participate in the next game, stating that his status for Game 2 is “in jeopardy.” In a post-game interview with ESPN’s Tim MacMahon, Morant revealed that he was unable to perform basic tasks such as “undo a balled-up pair of socks” due to the excruciating pain in his hand.

Ja Morant

In Game 1, Morant played for 30 minutes and contributed 18 points, six rebounds, and two assists. However, his departure from the game with just under six minutes left. Unquestionably proved costly for Memphis, as the Lakers outscored the Grizzlies by 12 points for the rest of the game.

This injury comes after Morant missed 21 games during the season due to various reasons. With the Grizzlies winning 11 out of 21 games without him. If he is unable to play in Game 2, backup point guard Tyus Jones, who scored nine points in 25 minutes during Game 1. Would most likely replace him in the starting lineup.

As the Grizzlies look to even the series with the Lakers. All eyes will be on Ja Morant and his recovery. Fans and analysts alike will eagerly await updates on his condition leading up to Game 2.
