What's Your Take on the "Kid Nation" Controversy?

It seems like every day this week, there's been a new story about possible misdeeds on the set of "Kid Nation." Today's development involves a complaint that the show about kids trying to build their own society overworked its adult crew.


But most of the allegations have involved the treatment of the children, saying they were in physical danger or working so much they violated child labor laws. Some observers have even said the show should be canceled in light of the controversy. CBS may have launched an internal investigation into the show, and late last week, the Smoking Gun revealed the contract parents had to sign which removed their right to sue CBS if something bad happened to their kid. CBS has acknowledged that a couple of kids drank bleach and one was burned while cooking (all are fine now) — but, on the other hand, couldn't kids get into that kind of trouble while horsing around at a neighbor's house or at camp? Do you think CBS should be in hot water over "Kid Nation"?
