I'll start this now and get back to it 4/21.
Spent the whole day in the car listening to talk radio; a "main topic" was the Bull Durham/Hall of Fame/Tim Robbins "I'm a celebrity and here's what I have to say" incident.
Here's what I have to ask:
Celebrities seem to think (my opinion) their inherent "superiority" obligates them to grace us with opinions ranging from A to Z. The public has a commensurate obligation to pay heed to their enlightenments. On occasion, public opinion is gauged as being negative in response to their intellectual frothings; the celebrities counter that their rights are being battered if their proclamations meet with any response other than swooning acceptance.
Under no circumstances does the media require a celebrity to debate or otherwise stand behind their statements.
They are guaranteed the right to free speech-I would go to war to defend this right.
I am also entitled to the same right-somehow I don't feel any celebrity would extend themselves on my behalf.
Their rights are curtailed when they wish to expound and a full contingent of media doesn't magically appear; their right to speak includes amplification and dissemination by all available media. Their rights are likewise curtailed if ANYONE questions them.
I've been calling press conferences for a month now; nobody shows-What gives?
