Why does the media keep reporting on people we don't care about like Pete and Ashlee and anyone on The Hills?
You may credit fear and laziness. That permission comes courtesy of tabloid expert Mark Pasetsky, who adds, "Editors are scared.

But editors just fear that readers won't buy anything else on the newsstand."

Come on, B!tch, don't you admit to a few tongue-biting moments when you have to cover the "hot ones" who are so obviously not?
That Twilight kid won over millions of teenage girls on a diet of nothing but embalming fluid. Give him some credit.
