Add the media to that. People don't want news anymore. They just want gossip about celebrities and psuedo-celebrities. WHO. GIVES. A. ****?!?! The only reason they're famous is because they say their famous and people watch them. Used to be you had to actually DO something to earn celebrity status. Now you just have to act like an idiot/jerk/airhead/punchline. Combine that with the media churning out rampant speculation and calling it news because it's the only way to fill up an unnecessary 24-hour news cycle.
