    Popular news media coverage vs coverage of ordinary people doing extrordinary things...

    What is the signifigance of popular news media covering things such as Whitney Houstons death or Charlie Sheens latest escapeds so heavily when on the same days there are ordinary people such as fireman, soldiers, doctors, etc doing amazing things for our country and/or dying for the people of it. How does this affect the mindsets of the younger generations?

    Sends the message of, regardless of the circumstances, the ordinary heros of this country aren't recognized. Seems ordinary success stories don't reap the rewards of the big buck advertisers.
