Now that Sandilands is sacked as judge for Australian Idol, I might start watching it again.

It's just a form of self-filtering - supply and demand. It's not being critical of people who read these articles. I'm simply using my miniscule voting power to help determine what ends up in front of me.

E.g. I want them to leave Marcus Enfield Spears alone because I believe he's taken enough of a beating, so I refrain from reading articles in hopes that I will contribute to lessening demand. In that case, my motivation is of pity to Enfield and to temper the raging media.

Sandinthevag is just a despicable person (I don't say this about...anybody else really). To read articles about him, is to fuel him. There is no such thing as negative publicity for him...but apparently that may be changing.

I have a feeling he will soon be using "The Troubled Past" card to draw up some sympathy to get back on the media horse.

so what you're saying is that you are drawn to these tabloid style articles, interested in their content, but refraining yourself from reading them for fear of more media reports - the very same ones you're interested in?

if the news shows what people want to see, be it obama's blackberry or a judge being struck off the roll or funny business with gelato, what is wrong with that? why is it wrong to aim for ratings by meeting a demand?
