A-Rod

If I have a major pet peeve. and my readers know I have many, it’s the false reports that routinely leak. First of all, let’s take the case of A-Rod and his wife, who, apparently, have split up. Now, I don’t know what goes on behind closed doors in the Rodriguez household, but what i do know, is that the ‘reports’ (which I don’t know if you can call it that) did not help the health of the marriage. A-Rod might have been a cheater. But if he was a just a regular baseball player, and not a superstar, would we be even having this conversation? No, of course not. What I think has to happen is these ‘celebrity watching’ media outlets have to understand their role: to provide news about the entertainment industry. Their role is not to break up marriages. No, it is to provide news and information on the TV and Movies. Because in essence, that is what entertainment is. I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again: These celebrity magazines, news outlets, etc, are leading to the dumbing down of society. Because if all we can talk about is break-ups, make-ups, and whatever these people find interesting, then our society will fall. Every powerful society has its kryptonite. Ours? It might just be the media.
