This sick fascination in listening to and giving bad publicity to others is something of a disease and thousands if not millions are stricken  with it.  It is almost like an addiction.  These bad news addicts get high from just hearing that something bad has happened to someone especially if it is someone they don’t like.  Most are not interested in the truth; if it is something bad and it is in the news that is all that matters.

I have been watching with interest over the last few days the way the media have not lost an opportunity to put the spotlight on Justin Bieber.  His arrest in Miami made headlines everywhere yet no one except for TMZ has taken the time to investigate and report that Bieber may have been falsely accused.  There is no evidence to support the police claims of drag racing and not only that his blood alcohol levels at the time of his arrest was .014, the legal limit is .08.  If one should go by those figures it means the charge of DUI is also false.

This raises a very serious question is it okay for the police to arrest someone on false charges, and by turning a blind eye to this are we not creating a precedent for other youths to be treated in a likewise manner?  Investigative journalism is now a thing of the past.  Everyone is interested in presenting sensational news and the truth suffers but hey the bad news addicts are happy!

    I sadly agree that investigative journalism is mostly a thing of the past.
