Why are notable people more newsworthy?
After listening to Dr. Jerz's newsworthy mp3, I wondered why exactly notable people are more newsworthy. It makes sense that disasters that affect many people are newsworthy and that local events that affect people are as well. They want to learn about this news in order to be aware of what is happening around them. However, notable people such as celebrities do not necessarily affect people. Which is why I wonder what makes them so appealing to the news... any thoughts?
