The Discovery Channel has been around for a very long time and used to be a great resource for learning new things from around the world. Sadly, all that’s going on now, are stories about casts and members of the channel that are quite scandalous. The network has reality shows literally riddled with convicted criminals – some of whom are pedophiles and felons.
Discovery Found Out
Not only does Discovery Communications own this channel, but they also own Animal Planet and TLC. It seems the Discovery Channel has sunk to an all-time low with reality shows that are misleading and quite honestly disgusting. Take a look at some of the worst scandals in Discovery’s history and how people on these shows were able to make money off their really nasty habits.
