Adbuster: Heat Magazine

This advert cued more yelling at the TV from yours truly. It points revealingly to the shallowness of our culture (aside from presenting a pretty low view of women). We have nothing to talk about other than the broken lives of celebrities and the people we watch on the box.

Because we have become by and large a people that don't DO anything but rather a people that watch other people DO things, we have become shallow and in a complete reversal of the intended advert, uninteresting.

Final rant, these magazine are called Gossip mags for a reason, and Christians frankly shouldn't buy them because gossip is, well how should I put it, BAD.

I do agree with you, that these magazines aren't good things. But, does society reflect the media, or is media a reflection of society? Remember its people who write these, and people choose to buy them. Maybe its a tad blind to criticize the media and forget the people. I dunno.

Sure they feed each other, but the question is what is our response? A friend said if you think about your money as votes every time you spend you're voting for something, for a way society works. So I choose not to vote for cigarettes, pornography or in this case gossip.
