Today I start a new chapter in this blog called Media Scrutiny. Since my wife watches these shows, they spill over to me from time to time. Last night Kate was having a birthday party and pointed out the photographers in the bushes. “Yes, they are following us now, ugh” was the sentiment from Kate.
This morning Meredith from the Today show interviews the senior editor of People magazine. They talk about the divorce and within the story mention how the pressure of the show and paparazzi have paid their toll. So why didn’t Meredith ask People:
“Were those YOUR camera men in the bushes?”
“Have you ever paid for pictures from one of these sources??”
“Do you feel you and your magazine have contributed to the stress of their lives and lead to divorce?”
When are people going to stop paying for the destruction, interruption and outlandish crap of other people’s lives labeled as “entertainment”. More importantly, when is the media going to make a stand.
