Do you buy OK, or any other gossip mags?

If so, why? Do you approve of what they print (for you to buy and read)?

Do you feel guilty?

why would you feel guilty? At the end of the day most of what is written is what is put out by the celebs PR's.

I dont buy them myself, i find them as boring as hell

Gossip mags have to be the most pointless, soul-destroying wate of paper ever, IMHO! :thumbsup:

Noooooooooooooo i hate celebrity gossip with a vengance

No, I don't buy them, but where I work we sell them and if any left over at the end of the week we can take them home. Which I do, I just flick through them and pass them on. They are basically rubbish !

What's this? A one man moral crusade?

Why should anyone on here have to justify what they do, buy, read, vote etc to you?

I think you need a new hobby :roll:

No moral crusade. People's morality is their own to decide.

I just like to see what people think, see some views that aren't my own.

Apologies if my threads have distressed you.

Not particularly bored, easily distracted. I wasn't sad, but I am now. I never thought my enjoyment of debate and articulating my views was something to be ashamed of.

Debating is fine but the comments about feeling guilty are unnecesary as it implies that people are doing wrong by buying it.

I personally think they reduce the people in them to being less than human - people we can make judgments on based on the poor journalism and vindictive attitudes of the magazines.

They reduce death to an inconvenience, because it falls outside their printing schedule.

Asking if someone feels guilty is not the same as telling people they should do.

to a degree i agree with you however it is up to indivduals who read the mags to decide what they choose to acept as fact from any form of journalism this by what you say would include all forms of media including new on the t.v and broadsheets they are all guilty of having artistic license with what they print or say so should we all feel guilty about taking notice of any forms of media that is a weak disscusion in my view.

I agree that all news reports will have a degree of bias or sensationalism, but they're not entirely predicated on that notion (except Fox News perhaps).

The raison d'être for these magazines is to pry into people's lives, sometimes with their blessing, sometimes not.

I think when you pronounce a woman dead, before she's died that takes it to a whole new level.

An undercurrent of opinion - not to start a debate when one isn't necessary but there's always an undercurrent of opinion in even the most banal of statement.

I thought I was presenting my views in a non-confrontational manner.

I could have said that anyone reading these magazines is complicit in the reducing of a woman's death to nothing more than a way to sell advertising - a sandwich board on a coffin, if you will.

I didn't though, and I can't see that I will.

It's about a trend that has been going on for a while now, this is just the newest example.

If you feel the need to click spam then do. If you have an opinion, any opinion, then go for it.

my opinion is magazines are only doing what you are doing, but getting paid well for it, maybe you should think on

The people who write these articles aren't that well paid. But that ignores the motives behind it.

In what way? My focus is entirely on the motives behind them. But you're correct, I don't get paid to do this.

I don't read them and I disapprove of them.

The only places I've flicked through a kind of gossip mag have been the doctors' surgery and my parents' house, and both should know better.

My mother knows I disapprove of her reading habits (Hello and The Daily Mail - shamefu!), and I've also mentioned the surgery's 'library' to my doctor, who nodded and laughed.. :)

no no class hate/envy just dislike people who feel the need to tell others what they have / havent got or what there status is and tell your sister i said well done its hard getting through uni and everything so to come out of it with a good job is allways nice for people.
