'LEGITIMATE' NEWS SHOWS ARE WORSE THAN TABLOIDS

How hypocritical of the news magazines and news reports to distinguish themselves from the tabloids. Princess Diana's death proved that the so-called "legitimate" news shows are just as sensationalist as the tabloids.

For weeks after her death, we were bombarded with Diana. The airwaves were filled with stories of her death, and every station ran special after special on her life. They cashed in on her death, much as the tabloids did with her life.

Many of these reports blamed the paparazzi for the tragedy and accused them of harassing her with their constant coverage of celebrities. Yet they were doing the same thing. I respect the tabloids more than the "legitimate" news shows. At least they don't pretend to be respectable.
