ABSTRACT
The article presents an insight about the fading prevalence of Miranda warnings on television and the impact of pop culture on these rights. It discusses the U.S. Supreme Court case of Dickerson v. United States, wherein the Court evaluates the ambiguity over whether Miranda portrays a constitutional rule or is a judicial rule of evidence and procedure. The Court upheld that Miranda is a constitutional rule. It informs that television shows influence the U.S. citizen's perceptions of criminal procedure, law, and government. The legal information people receive from television shows may give rise to dangerous misunderstandings as the information is often distorted for dramatic effect and what is portrayed on television may not exist at all for general public.
