What is News?

Well, it's obviously different things to different people. Today the big news is how a cast member of the 'reality' show The Apprentice is accusing fellow cast-members of calling her names. A completely artificial grouping of heretofore unknown and not very likeable people cast together for the purposes of so-called "entertainment" and one calls another a name. The headline is repeated from coast to coast. What am I missing here?

The no news story

I'm with you. Must have been a slow news day--no war, politics, crime, etc. going on anywhere. Or maybe it is a diversion.

I figure

it is alot easier to watch and talk about people where some kind of common interest is shared than it is to create a new life for the homeless guy in the alleyway of your nieghbourhood downtown city core.
