    You could of course put a disclaimer before any show that is shown on TV telling people that it is fictional and that most people don't belong to the mob, drink other people's blood or spend their whole days planning murders. But that would be stupid since nobody thinks that anyway. I'm sure the congressman has watched shows such as Sex and the City and The Wire without thinking that he suddenly acquired intimate knowledge about every single person belonging to the groups of people portrayed in those shows. Likewise he should recognize people won't think that 6 fictional Jewish women in a trashy TV-show are some kind of spokeswomen for the entire Jewish community. You know that useless lump of meat you've been carrying along atop of your shoulders for all these years? Use it.
