Some people think that the media (newspapers) have the right to publish the details of famous people’s private lives, while others think it should be controlled. Discuss both views.
It is believed that print media have a right to cover the stories on celebrities personal life, while others say that this is not ethical and it should be monetized. While the followers of prominent people can learn about their favourite stars, I believe that this is the wrong thing to dig into every aspect of celebrities.
On the one hand, publications in newspapers about the actual lifestyle of famous individuals allow people to learn and understand to whom they follow. This can present a real image of a prominent person or whether they are just pretending to be a decent person in front of a camera. For example, a recent study by Cambridge University found that nearly 20% of celebrities in the UK were living a totally different lifestyle what they were pretending in the public. However, I do not agree with this viewpoint because of the reason the elucidated below.
On the other hand, the articles published on prominent peoples’ private lives is an invasion into their lives. This is a clear violation of the rights of their personal lives and some media houses can present distorted facts to aggregate things to raise a controversy. To illustrate, one of the media houses in India shared the family matters of a famous singer and this article ruined the professional career of that singer. Therefore, I think that this school of thought is preferable because this is an utterly wrong practice to invade into people life and thus, there should be control over publications.
In conclusion, although news on celebrities personal real lifestyle help people to learn about their actual life, I believe that writing every aspect on celebrities life is unethical as it is totally unacceptable to share personal matters of celebrities in the public.
