) and news media (an in debit look with blah black and white pictures). It’s not about the story it’s the story of how you got the story.
I must come out and say I’m one of those millions of people that buy those juicy headlines reading “ANGIE AND BRAD DIVORCE “is KATE HAVING AN AFFAIR?”. It’s a guilty pleasure that I’m really starting to double think about what the truth is and what’s there to make money
In then end its non ethical for us to be all involved in ones life. I know we all say its part of there job but when there own private life becomes front page and there whole family secrets brought on to paper for all to read, where do we draw the line when do we say enough is enough I love to know Kates favorite colour , but not when and where she’s having this affair I believe it ruins a family it’s a hard time someone is going through and we all can sit point fingers and laugh, but what happens when the table is turned on to you. You have the privacy to deal with the situation, and that what people need to understand yeah we enjoy the funny made up stories we can all read and laugh about, but serious life changing family situations should be kept private and dealt with within the family. I believe a person shouldn’t be exploited in a during a hard time just to make a dollar, and that’s why I can say I don’t buy any of those magazines anymore, but I do tend to pick them up time to time just to skim read.

- People might think the news media is great because they tell people everything. It is the 411 on what is happening in the United States of America. However, is it really their business to know everything. People have the right to their privacy. There is no need to exploit people’s lives all over the television, magazines, or newspapers. They are violating their privacy. This exploiting of the media is ruining people’s lives and it needs to stop. They need to stop because some things that are exploited in the media cause people to judge others, which is just not right at all.... [tags: media, USA, privacy, Celebrities, ]

- I have been interested in the paparazzi and the people who stalk celebrities since my brother first started his musical career. When people would say how lucky I was to have a famous family member, I wished they could see the other side. Our perspective was not nearly the glamorous lifestyle that many people imagined. Our life stories, candid statements, and friendships are examined like it is evidence for a major crime scene. Studying the issue from my unique perspective, I also realized the solution was not as simple as I thought.... [tags: Celebrities]

- The escalation of media coverage surrounding devastating events, created another form of television for society: unscripted, reality television. As images of devastating events occurred, the media coverage shaped society’s opinion, invoking fear from urban area to suburbia. Celebrity reputations were quickly altered by allegations of heinous events, whereas, terrorists and teens were escalating to infamy. Was the news the culprit for inciting fear and chaos in an already insecure environment. Did the structure of the media outlets so closely mimic that of the entertainment industry that society could no longer distinguish between celebrity news and news that created celebrities....

- Much of today’s society seems obsessed on what actors/actress, athletes, and music artist are wearing, eating, who they are marrying, dating, where they are vacationing, what affairs they are having or have had, and how they live their everyday lives. What’s so interesting about this obsession is as a society we build them up only to tear them down. Media outlets are swift to report when celebrities are in trouble; accomplishments are hardly reported unless they have passed away or an awards show is being telecast....

- The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) has a goal to expand coverage, control healthcare costs, and improve the health care delivery system. Being one of the last wealthy countries without a universal healthcare plan, the website launch of Healthcare.gov on October 1, 2013 was supposed to be a ground breaking event in the fact that The United States government was moving towards a healthcare system where private insurance companies would have government implemented regulations and subsidides to ensure universal coverage and non-dicrimination; however, this change was soon seen as an international concern....

- However, the biggest problem with their coverage doesn’t have to do with their misrepresentation of Ramos or the event but rather with their omissions. It is clear that the media coverage focused on highlighting Ramos’ faults and the “predictability” of the event but not once was Trump and his authority questioned. One would assume that if a journalist was ejected from a news conference for wanting to ask a question, journalists would stand with the journalist. After all, it is a journalist’s job to question authority.... [tags: Mass media, Journalism, Journalist, Reporter]

- The discrepancies in media coverage in coverage of female and children athletics have large gaps, but are gaining momentum in sharing equality. Major athletic leagues such as the NBA and FIFA World Cup have wide gaps in marketing and ratings for their male and female athletes. Children are future athletes and superstars, but as funding and coverage in athletics catering to the males, women are breaking the barriers to be in the spotlight of sport. Both gender contribute equally to athletics, and challenge the each other to accept new ideas and change.... [tags: Media]

When I read both tabloids and news print media, you can actually read the difference. One is loud in your face full with big words and it’s kind of like there pulling at you to get you angry; and the other is written in such a manner were there not trying to pull at you but trying to get the story across with detailed information and informative feedback. And with the stories I believe news print media has more of an ethnical way of getting the story or picture, where as you hear about the paparazzi for the tabloids jumping in front people, hanging on trees just to peek over someone’s wall proving it’s a dog eat dog world out there. I believe if we as consumers stop buying these tabloids when there exploiting these people during a very upsetting time in there life. They would have to come up with an alternative way of which is more ethical to report the story. Why is it that news media respects someone’s privacy were as tabloids don’t?
My personal opinion to this is look at the market and look at what sells. We are in a media driven world. Everything we do and how we act leads back to the media. Its mass media brainwashing us on what they want you to believe is important; within our generation we are most likely to pick up a Life & Styles magazine over the National Post. It doesn’t matter who’s dyeing in the war, what matter is what dress Cameron Diaz was wearing to the golden gobals. It’s the sad truth it is what it is and if we want to see a change in that; we have to make the change in order from them to make a change.
What is it in us that has turned us into professional peeking toms?
