I've noticed both the media and government here in Australia seem to have a focus on making everyone in society good moral citizens. The main problem with this idea is moral is subjective and I'll say I spend a lot of time cringing at ideas both in the media and proposed by government. Select people get torn to pieces in the public arena for things which happen throughout society and are usually not that harmful (except in the sense that they set them up to be totally devalued and exiled by the moral police).
Society is made of every type of person and none will ever fit a script of what a person should be. In a sense it seems unhealthy to continue making them think they should. On the other hand there needs to be some limits. Where is the line between being over-controlling and moving us into the dark ages, and having a normal healthy society? Do these things really spiral out of control if liberty is properly respected by government and media?
