Thousands of California inmates are getting a daily pitch on the finer side of what prison life could be like in Tennessee.

The video they're watching touts a private Tennessee prison's larger and cleaner jail cells; 79 TV channels, including ESPN; views of peaceful cow pastures; and inmates in the "Dorm of the Week," staying up all night, watching a movie and eating cheeseburgers or pizza.

this is so funny. i know the article is a few days old, but ive never seen this video before. its played in the cdc prisons and its promoted by cdc, and the whole video is the inmates who moved from california to tennessee talking about how much better private prisons are and how bad cali staff and medical is, how great the programs are there....i kept thinking, if cdc is supporting this video, have they watched it? why dont they make some changes here instead of sending people halfway across the country??
