more of an after thought

Back in 2008, Levin defended the site,
claiming, “What we’re doing is not the fall of Western civilization.
Celebrities are just people who other people invest in.” He’s right:
Celebrity is, indeed, as old as organized civilization itself.
But the mode, tone, and matter in which celebrities are mediated
absolutely influence the type payoff received from that celebrity
investment. Ultimately, we have to look at TMZ and decide for ourselves:
How much is one Donald Sterling takedown worth, and how many “Lupita Nyong’o: 12 Years a Babe” headlines should we tolerate to fund it?
that was more sexism related imo. they didnt discuss if there were racial issues in the work place or the racist comments that run rampant on that site

Humpf!  Never occured to me that Harvey was gay. Makes sense tho' since him and the tmz site is very mysoginistic.

Read it.
Very interesting. I will say, IM not a big TMZ fan. I think it might have started off a place of moral intentions but it aint that no longer.

I use to watch Harvey on the news during my years living in Long beach.
Someone will air the dirt . Let TMZ break the story . I notice over the years TMZ breaking new stories are copied by the mainstream stations like CNN . I can't wait to ride the bus at 80 . I will hold up my BHM sign .
