Have you noticed the latest news today? Have you noticed that the news and the important problems that society faces today are increasingly seen in the “burning”? This is because more and more the media focuses on the entertainment industries, instead of “real news”. That is the blessing and curse of today’s entertainment news, it becomes something good for the entertainment industry and bad for the REAL news industry.
The main problem with focusing on nothing but the “news” related to entertainment is the fact that our society is not kept informed about the main problems and current events of our society when they are constantly bombarded with nothing more than the entertainment industry “news.” The complacency with which most have allowed this to happen is the saddest part of this, because the average person no longer cares about major problems or world events.
And what is even worse is that what television, magazines and Internet sources call entertainment news today are not even “real” news, but simply a column of gossip that runs constantly. When the highlight of a story is what someone bought at a convenience store, what color is your hair today, or if they and their partner have problems, that’s not news, just gossip.
Not to mention, whenever celebrities are constantly followed by money hungry photojournalists or constantly speculated by numerous different people in the media, their privacy and basic human rights are trampled. All for the sake of the so-called “news”.
The average person does not splash his face in every media every time they buy a gallon of milk, a box of condoms or a ticket for speeding. Is it correct to impose that on celebrities just because they are famous and call it “News?” That’s the biggest part of the problem with today’s entertainment news, things that are not really newsworthy are reported and discussed as if they were.
What you have to do, if you are fed up with the lack of media reporting, is to complain to media companies, newspapers and magazines about the lack of quality news that media companies are publishing. If enough people take the initiative and stand up and demand better news and reports, then the media will change to give people what they want.
If people do not demand change and are complacent about the status of the news and the reporting processes, today’s entertainment news will remain as it is and the media will continue to report on items that are not newsworthy, such as who ate what. Breakfast, how much does it cost someone’s ridiculously large diamond ring and who got a ticket for speeding the night before.
