This subject has really bothered me for along time and I guess today is the day I have had enough.
News is one thing, even though it is usually tainted and slanted depending on the source, but the quest for the entertainment scoop has reached yet another level.
The Princess Diana fiasco is when I starting paying attention to this and there have been many since. This past weekend it was the Travolta family. Not only do these poor people have to bury their son but also have everything they believe in get dragged through the mud and be picked apart. It is absolutely none of our business and we should not be this interested. Do we care if Amy Winehouse goes to rehab or is Lindsey Lohan is a lesbian or not? I know that I sure do not. I must admit I do get a chuckle out of the headlines when I am in the check out lane at the store but I have no intention of ever purchasing a tabloid in this lifetime. The fact that this garbage scrolls by on my computer screen every time I login to check my email is bad enough.
Am I foolish to think that the world might be a better place without these poor excuses for a newspaper?
