Why is Charlie Sheen all over the news?

Are you sick of hearing about Charlie Sheen? At first I just felt bad for the guy. I mean, he’s got problems. But then I think, why in God’s green earth is he EVERYWHERE?? I opened my homepage this morning and here is what I saw.

This. Actor Charlie Sheen escalates his war of words with tv bosses.

This. “My efforts” helped get get pay for “men” crew.

This. My live in “goddess’s'” don’t judge me.

There are many MANY more but I think you get where I’m heading. Not only are there video’s upon video’s which get more and more bizarre every minute and it’s on more blogs than I can mention. It was also on every single news broadcast I turned on yesterday. CBS. NBC. ABC. I’m sure it was on FOX and hundreds of cable and dish channels.

What I’d like to know is one word. WHY?

Why is this on our news? I can see once or twice but come on people!!! He’s an actor in Hollywood. He’s not a soldier or a meteorologist. He’s not a journalist. He’s an actor! Why is this “serious” news worthy? I don’t watch the National Enquirere type shows. I’m talking about our LOCAL news.

I don’t get it. Have we as people really come to this? He has 5 kids who will grow up and see this crap. I feel bad for them. Heck, I felt bad for them before this. Why do people enjoy this train wreck?? What am I missing?

    I don’t watch the show and don’t consider this real news so other than basic drug crazed celeb stuff I couldn’t tell ya exactly what is going on with him.

      I don’t watch those shows either Michael. That’s my whole point. Why is this on the regular local network news? It’s not news! It’s celeb gossip.

    I’m tired of hearing about him. There’s a whole lot more problems in our world besides Charlie Sheen ruining his life. He is psycho and is spiraling out of control. I wouldn’t be surprised if we’re gonna read in a few weeks that he’s committed suicide. His poor kids too!! Does he spend anytime with them? Or is it just the nannys and the 2 “goddess’s” doing all the work? He put all his co-workers out of work…he just needs to stop being so childish and grow up! And get sober

    I honestly have no idea what the guy “does” but I have seen hundreds of headlines telling me that whatever it is, he does it badly. So I was wondering the same thing as you, Joy – today especially, everywhere I look, it’s all about this guy, who is a nobody as far as I’m concerned.

    So today he’s the guy everyone loves to hate. The other day it was Justin Bieber because he had the unmitigated gall to respond to a question about abortion (saying he’s pro-life – so now he’s a misogynist). For a minute it was almost “Jen” with her new ugly haircut. There’s no method to this madness. It kind of makes me embarrassed to be in the same species as so-called journalists.

    I try to always consider the source. Whoever is telling these “facts” – do they have a history of reporting objectively and accurately? Usually far from it. So while I’ve seen lots of headlines about this guy, I have not wasted any time clicking through to the underlying “stories.”

    That brings me to my ongoing amazement that “journalists” think it’s OK to just fabricate information or make up headlines that are intentionally misleading. And even more, my amazement that so many people just read the headline and believe it, and get all worked up about it. Have people not leanred that the more sensationalist a headline is, the more likely that it’s implication is the exact opposite of the facts?

    I feel more and more annoyed by the news we see each day. Why is that self-destroying man in news? What good did he do other than being a spoiled, drunk, addictive man who says the most stupid things? I cannot believe I have to be on guard when I watched the news. The same with Lindsey Lohan. I do not care she is acting like a moron. Let our so called educated journalists come up with real meaningful or funny stories, and not with this crap.

    I for one am tired of him being plastered all over my Yahoo page. And I just read, he was blindsided when his sons were removed from the house. Really?! I have no idea what is really going on, but just from the tid-bits I do see and hear, I wouldn’t want my kids in that house either. He looks ill to me, and if not ill, then certainly on something and I don’t think it’s this Charlie Sheen drug he speaks of. I feel bad for his kids. I feel bad for the people his actions have affected. BUT I do not care to hear about it. It needs to be left to those TMZ type shows. It’s entertainment, and since when is our local news about entertainment, of that sorts?!

    I was just sitting here listening to Gayle King and I really agree with her and most of the people who called in. It’s really none of our business what he does. He hasn’t broken the law really. It’s not illegal to hang around with porn stars and he’s never been caught with drugs and really, most of us like him. But it’s like you can’t hear enough. I don’t want to listen but I’m compelled to do so and then I feel bad for watching. I do feel bad for his 5 kids and his parents though. I’m glad the boys were removed this morning.

    THIS is news? I think not! Don’t watch the show, don’t watch the news……now I know why!!! 😦

    I think one of the problems is that we’ve become such a “give me the story then move on” society that we’ve forgotten how important it is to actually get into the meat of a situation… So something like Egypt melting down – that requires thought, objective analysis from “talking heads”, and most importantly, objective reporting from the “journalists”. But they’ve forgotten how to do that – be objective, I mean. So many of them are so busy putting their own personal spin on it, so that their story will be the one picked up and transmitted to all the papers, that we rarely get the absolute truth anymore.

    So now something like the Charlie Sheen story comes along, he’s all out there on Twitter and every channel, the story is pretty much writing itself. They don’t have to do any work, and it’s sensationalist and juicy. Why try to present the complicated picture of a dictator who is loyal to the U.S., but may still be distasteful, but might be a better alternative than what’s out there, or not… Aw, heck, let’s just report on Charlie Sheen!!!

    It’s a sad place we’ve come to.
