I just watched an 8 minute piece on CNN purporting to take a serious look at whether paparazzi are out of control after a run in recently with Julia Roberts. The piece ends with a debate on paparazzi tactics. But here’s the problem, how can CNN claim to be looking at this from both sides when they spend over 5 minutes showing video of the paparazzi from TMZ. They probably paid to use the video and gave those cretins tons of free publicity. It’s almost like having a discussion of the terrors of alcoholism with a banner ad for Budweiser running at the bottom of the screen. CNN isn’t reporting anything, they’re just acting morally superior to TMZ, while they bask in the glory of getting to run the product of TMZ’s effort. The whole thing is incredibly inane.
