Celebrating Diversity the Fox Way

The newest reality show on Fox? "The Littlest Groom," a pint-sized version of "The Bachelor," in which little people compete against tall people for the affections of a dwarf bachelor. Fox's fair and balanced spin on the show?

“Littlest Groom” Executive Producer Bill Paolantonio defended the program as a “celebration of diversity.”

“We have gone to great lengths to make sure everybody on this program is treated with dignity and respect,” he said. ”Human emotion is human emotion, no matter what the package is, and this program ultimately is about that.”

This sounds just a little bit too altruistic for Fox...
