It is a popular argument that Television, newspapers, magazines, and other media pay too much attention to the personal lives
It is a popular argument that Television, newspapers, magazines, and other media pay too much attention to the personal lives of famous people. Personally, I totally disagree with this statement. The medias just offer the good connection between mass and the famous people.
The main reason for my propensity is that the medias meet the what the mass need. Since A famous people always have some good characteristics, his thought and behavior have great positive influences on the mass. People worshiping him intend to imitate him.. They want to know how the famous people do when he encounter a difficulty in his life, and get his thought from his behavior. Then it is necessary for the medias to pay attention to the personal lives of famous people.
Another reason why I disagree with this statement is that the famous need the media to pay attention to them. A famous person always needs to attract the notice of the mass. For example, a famous person always tell some little stories about his life, his childhood. Obviously they are really some interesting things for him, But it is most important that they want people to know what kind of person he is.
Though medias build a bridge between famous people and the mass by paying attention to the personal lives of famous people, it is undeniable that they bring the negative influence. They make it hard for famous people to enjoy their private life, and bring them more pressure. Sometimes the stories told by the medias are even boring. But I think by using the correct methods these aspects can be improved.
From all we have discussed above, medias help the mass know more about famous people. So it is necessary that television, newspapers, magazines, and other media pay attention to the personal lives of famous people.
