High profile court cases have been getting increasingly popular as time goes on. Court cases like the Casey Anthony and Scott Peterson trials are media dynamite. Although the media is legally allowed to be a part of these court proceedings, they still cause drama and stipulations that many feel would not be a factor if their presence were withdrawn. Notoriety, or being famous for bad deeds, is a characteristic engulfing many of Hollywood’s elite personnel; for this reason, many high profile cases have become even more of a media magnet. Many may believe that notoriety is a determining factor in high profile cases, but all legal proceedings are conducted in the same manner whether heavily documented in the

Even when celebrities follow the practice of a particular pattern of constantly re-inventing themselves through controversy it promotes public interest and sparks curiosity it often makes front-page news in the media. This is, in a sense, publicity for the celebrity. As it promotes their name and their brand which helps them become more and more recognized. Sociologist Goffman would

Freedom is a type of living that everyone in the world would appreciate having. Some people live in a communist country or a country where freedom do not exist and everything is controlled by the government. With many rules and regulations proposed by the government, people feel that it takes away from their freedoms. Nonetheless, America was established upon freedom, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. People want to live this way along with protection from danger. In today’s turbulent society, freedom and protection can co-exist because freedom is our natural right which indicates our right to have protection from danger. People should not have to choose which is of greater importance because both are factors that contribute to our living

As we come into an increasingly technologically based future, Australia, as a nation and a society, is facing more and more of one particular form of offense- cyberbullying. Unfortunately, despite greater efforts to counter it, the practice is quickly becoming one that current laws cannot control, and it’s about time Australians considered a change. The simple truth is that existing laws are inadequate and outdated, and, in order to protect our children, and our loved ones, a better solution is required.
Would you want you whole life stalked by people and paparazzi snapping pictures of you eating, sleeping, having personal time with friends or family, and somehow always finding out where you are and getting no private time to yourself? Most people prefer to don’t want to be stalked everyday, especially when your sleeping or eating with someone. Gossip tends to ruin or somewhat help people’s lives because it spreads certain things you didn’t want some people to know that have now found out due to gossip, which inevitably is worse then not being able to stand up to the person face to face and tell them yourself. This life of a celebrity can be extremely harmful, not only to the individual themselves, but the people around that individual. Another thing that tends to be ruined or lost by celebrity culture is
The justice system in the United States of America is not fair. Michelle Alexander writes a great article “Locked Up In America” describing how people gets into the justice system and how their life is when coming out of jail. People that are convicted of any crime they are labeled as criminals and felons. Criminals does not get properly punished for their crimes if they did they wouldn’t be so many people going in and out of jail. The justice system should have different ways of punishing a person according to the crime they commit, just by putting them in jail and assuming that is going to change them is not a good way of going about that. These criminals as the justice system call them they get stripped of basic civil and human rights when being released from jail. There not able to find a job, and they can’t get any government assistant. Is like the justice system wants these criminals to fail in life for they could keep going back to jail.
At Least once in everyone's life they have done something they regret whether it be breaking the law or just breaking someone else's rules. Frank Trippett in his article, “ A Red LIght for Scofflaws.” points out that people who are breaking minor laws are getting in more trouble than ones who are breaking the major laws. The author supports his argument first by providing evidence like littering, speeding, or noise pollution as minor law breaking that are making citizens feel like huge lawbreakers. He continues by saying “ Social order are profoundly shaken when ordinary law-abiding citizens take to skirting the law.” The author's purpose is to try to get everyone to realize that the innocent citizens are getting in more trouble than the prisoners. Trippett is right, the enforcement is making the good citizens feel more of criminals than the actual criminals.
The films The Nine Lives of Marion Barry and Anita, contribute to history in allowing us to go back in the past to see how we as a society chose how to handle scandals, which creates certain expectation and set boundaries during the era in which they occurred. With this information, we can then redefine the differences between events in the past and compare them today. For example, Barry was elected into office countless times after countless drug scandals surfaced about his coke addition, yet Anita Hill’s reputation was destroyed after she accused Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment. Many would consider this to be great injustice, resulting in confusion. As a result, the media plays such an important role in helping us understand and in showing how some scandals are very specific to time, place, and culture which is why people react differently to them.
‘The People v. Larry Flynt’ is a docudrama that chronicles the life and exploits of Larry Flynt and his pornographic publication, ‘Hustler.’ Hustler originally began as a newsletter to attract patrons to Flynt’s Hustler Go-Go club with nude photos of the women who worked there. This newsletter evolves into Hustler Magazine, which over time gains a widespread distribution after acquiring and publishing nude photos of Jackie Kennedy Onassis, former First Lady.
Everybody makes mistakes and we are all human beings. We learn from the mistakes we make and the mistakes stay between us. When it comes to famous people, everything they do it monitored and judged by millions of people. This means that everything they do affects the world and the way they see things. There are many people who look up to celebrities and see them as role models. Celebrities are not good role models because they don’t use their social media the right way, they give out the impression that money buys happiness, and they are presented to the world in an unrealistic way.
However, these celebrities often are extremely vocal with their opinion and they abuse that power, in occasions in a positive way. Due to the enormous following celebrities have on social media, when they share their opinion online a majority of the public tend to comply with that opinion. Notably, back in 2007 Oprah’s endorsement of Barack Obama’s presidency played a tremendous role in the 2008 election results with over one million votes in favor of Barack Obama; certainly, celebrities can influence the public opinion. Moreover, celebrities and social media go hand in hand by cause of them posting their opinions on the different social media platforms that exist. Celebrities are not aware of the power they, and social media have on the public opinion; in other words, celebrities on social media are one of the main influencers on what view of a certain topic the public oblige
I agree that we should not generalize on the fact that celebrities are influencing our teenagers negatively but the problem is that such celebrities are not prominent; they are not receiving the due exposure in the social media. Celebrities with positive influence are not given the opportunity to spread their positive message to the world because the spotlight is mostly given to those who have no dreams and goals in life.
