Sex scandals, celebrities losing it....why is this taking up a whole segment on the news channels?

I don't get why this is important for the world to know. I mean if it were an entertainment channel, than fine, talk about Charlie Sheen's craziness and Arnold Schwarzinigger's love child. Why does that take principal over news that matters? I'm so sick of the gossip news. There's a reason I pass up the tabloids in the supermarket.

  • There's a huge market for it, else it wouldn't be published.

    I can't stand it either, but to each their own.

  • Many people don't care, but MANY do. I'm sure the gossip portion of the news, and the gossip pages of the papers probably pay for the entire thing.

  • Because that is what the majority of our citizens want to hear. Misery loves company, perhaps? It's mindless drivel that requires no thinking-

    I think sometimes people believe that they actually know those who live their lives in the public eye, and therefore, they have a right to know all the minuteia- Wrong, just because you know of someone does not mean you personally know them.
