Does the media invade the lives of public figures too much?
I'm opposed to the idea that the media invades the lives of public figures too much. I have two reasons for this.
First, I personally don't know much about a public figure's perfonal life, such as their family's names, their home addresses, their phone numbers, their alma maters and so on. I watch TV every day and read articles on the Internet, but there are a few coverages and articles that look extreme. I must admit that the media goes too far sometimes, yet I wouldnt say that they invade the lives of celebrities too much.
Second, any public figures should have known what would be like to become famous. I'm sure they take a precaution to protect themselves beforehand. On the other hand, I feel that public figures themselves are making use of the media in many ways. Especially when they fail to lose popularity, they use the media to regain their power so as not to fade away. Public figures need to be noticed to be in the front lines, and they understand that the media is a quick tool to keep themselves well-known.
In conclusion, I don't think that the media invades the lives of public figures too much. That's because I cannot find the fact of it, and I suppose there is a "give and take" scheme between the media and public figures.
