Media Lab: News and Hollywood

So clearly people can see that I am more a fan of Hollywood, simply because of its glamorous side, than I am of news, because it seems to always be portrayed in a boring light. I like how the section on page 280 of A History of News, actually tied the two together. This section talks about how the two cross over, and I thought it was a great way for me to see how they do tie together, more than just current events in which movie star is entering rehab this week and which one is having a baby. (Though for some odd reason, I find that FASINATING!) It is not always "news." So I really have to say that I like how this book put the two together in this section and talked about them as kind of a partnership, instead of a rivalry.

Do you think the crossover caused its demise?
