I am not sure if this is happening around the world? From what I see in Singapore is that we tend to make stupid people famous by sharing what the stupid people is doing.
These stupid people tend to be public enemy or like to make false claims. Well I see that they need lots of attention and love, so they get it from the media public by being public enemy.
The good news is from a friend of mine who was from the media, is that if the media or public is making these stupid people famous, that means the country is doing good and there’s nothing serious to break news about.
So in a way, the stupid people are secondary paparazzi news, that’s not really threatening but irritating.
So no news is good news.
