Soapbox issue

I have a soapbox issue I want to discuss. I caught part of a news story about Justin Bieber being involved in a dispute with his neighbors and being accused of throwing eggs at his neighbors house. I became confused as to why this was news worthy? Neighbors always have disputes, police are usually called. The fact that Justin Bieber can allegedly sing and has made money, does not mean that he has super common sense or makes good decisions. He is just a punk with money.

As a society, we have got to stop dignifying stupidity with a national media response. Every stupid thing that a celebrity does, is no more newsworthy than when John Q Citizen does the same thing. As a society we are seriously dumbing down, by giving these kinds of stories so much media attention.
