Our small minded celebrity obsessed culture

Roger Ebert hits back at our celebrity obsessed media coverage.

The celebrity culture is infantilizing us. We are being trained not to think. It is not about the disappearance of film critics. We are the canaries. It is about the death of an intelligent and curious, readership, interested in significant things and able to think critically. It is about the failure of our educational system. It is not about dumbing-down. It is about snuffing out.

The news is still big. It’s the newspapers that got small.

    Rogers point is well taken. But it is us, (or those who follow such), that have chosen to follow that path.
