the news should cover anything worth coveeimg, but it should stop the incessant lies. not everyone, but some do lie and twist stories and decieve, or are biased to the point of no return. i think there should be a law to prevent these mishaps.
I agree with Psychdave. The media includes the news. Public politics is news. Celebrity "news" is entertainment. News should do what it needs to to inform the citizenry, including disrupting the life of politicians and the like. But actors aren't important enough to interfier with.
It depends on the public figure. Politicians are supposed to represent their constituents, so if they are doing something unethical or something that impacts their office, it is reasonable to report on it. If it is an actor who is having her dinner disrupted by photographers, then yes.
