You asked a very good question and I've become very disgusted with not only media, but programs, the news, etc., that takes something that is serious and makes it into a standing joke or sensationalism. You can blame the fans of Reality Shows to a degree. Who in their right mind would make a TV program popular by seeing someone being degraded over and over again. I find that some people in this world are becoming hardened and insensitive perhaps because they mistrust others, or some are plain greedy. I have no use for descention, gossip, cheating or talking behind a person's back when they can't defend themselves. It appears many love to kick a dog when it's down! We see some judges and lawyers with their programs on TV which I think is making a mockery out of the justice system. Some people will do anything for money! It's all about money, popularity, making a position for themselves and all they basically end up doing is being a flash in the pan and fading away. That's one good thing about it. A classic case of the above is the David Hasselhoff video which was leaked out (I have no doubt it was his wife and her attorney that did so although the wife denies it.) The man has a drinking problem and needs help. He asked his daughter to video tape him so he could see for himself what he looked like when drunk. Unfortunately the tape leaked out into the media and they play it over and over again. You bet it's unfair, but then again, who said life was fair. The world is a rough place and one has to always watch their back and listen well to their instinctive feelings about certain things in their life. In fact, I'm doing that right now with a problem I have. I consider no one my friend when I do business because I instinctively know there is one large bone in the middle of this world and everyone wants a piece of it and some people will do anything to get a piece of that bone. The one thing I can do is remain true to myself, never sink as low as some, but be cautious and if I don't like what I hear or see I have the opportunity to walk away. I stay away from the media as much as possible and use my own common sense. There are still many good people out there and better entertainment and humans have the choice of what they want to see on programs, in theaters, etc. There are a lot of people doing good things without "pay back" of any sort, but you have to look in the right places. The media sensationalizes everything that could be good, but seems to find the bad in it. There is lots of good news out there, but the old saying is, "Bad news travels fast" is so true.
