Dude, Fox News issued an alert saying that Spears got drunk. Are you sure this is a liberal thing, not an "America as a whole is seeking to forget their lives working for uncaring corporations by wrapping themselves up in the affairs of the rich and privileged" thing?

This is a remarkable essay. Yes, the people obsessed with celebrities are generally liberal.--Aschlafly 01:32, 27 January 2008 (EST)

Really? In my experience, they've been redneck housewives with no claimed political standing beyond being stereotypical fundies. Barikada 01:39, 27 January 2008 (EST)
Celebrity obsession is fuelled by trashy newspapers. In the UK the main celebrity-obsessed papers are the Daily Express (Conservative), the Daily Star (Conservative), The Sun (Conservative) and the Daily Mirror (Left of centre). Wolfbagger 09:19, 27 January 2008 (EST)
On this side of the pond, it's mostly gossip rags like the National Enquirer. Barikada 16:12, 27 January 2008 (EST)

Evidence

Publications such as tabloids and Entertainment Tonight garner most of their audience from the Liberal population. With this support, these enterprises are allowed to exist because they cater to the liberal appetite Any evidence for this? (9:23, 27 January 2008 Wolfbagger)

Hmmm

"Liberal celebrity obsession is the phenomenon of obessions over the lives of celebrities which is demonstrated mainly by individuals with liberal political leanings" Eh? Whereas Conservative celebrity obsession is the phenomenon of obessions over the lives of celebrities which is demonstrated mainly by individuals with conservative political leanings? I guess that must be it. I am looking at this essay and musing on the meaning of concepts like non sequitur and circular argument. Anyone care to comment? Humblpi 17:02, 17 February 2008 (EST)

At least it's an essay. HelpJazz 17:51, 17 February 2008 (EST)

Hmmm.

Shouldn't this be "Media celebrity obsession" cause most liberals I know don't give a darn what happens to these people. (And BTW, Fox News isn't exempt from this). ד.לערנער 22:09, 16 March 2008 (EDT)

Fox News is the worst, I agree. DanH 22:11, 16 March 2008 (EDT)
I don't think liberals are obsessed with celebrities (I certainly am not, and dislike people who are), it's just people in general (not all, but really all kinds of people). So, the media is just pandering to what many people want to see on TV. Believe me I have known plenty of people that would never be considered democrats watch E! network religiously and many liberals despise anyone whose name is know outside their own home.--Snotbowst 07:59, 21 May 2008 (EDT)
