As you are all probably aware, over recent years, 'the media' has become obsessed by celebrating indivuals (normally actors or musicians). People are less interested in politics, science, culture etc.
A recent poll conducted by a french tv station, showed that the majority (57%) of UK citizans were not interested in the US presidential election.
Yesterday, a UK celebrity (Kerry Katona) appeared on a day-time T.V. show (called This Morning). Her voice was slurred and she was not particularly coherent or astute. There were multiple videos of the interview on YouTube (YouTube - Kerry Katona on This Morning: Full Interview). They have received in total 100s of thousand of views and generated 50000+ comments! This is quite amazing since the interview only occurred yesterday!
What on Earth is going on? The explanation that the general public are morons cannot be sufficient, surely?
