On Tabloid Journalism, Pt. 2

I was standing in line at the supermarket yesterday when I saw the following headline jump out at me:Now I've said some pretty horrible things about celebrities, sometimes even in the context of bizarre yellow journalism critiques that should have looked upon them more favorably, but all I can think is that this cover is such a reach that it doesn't deserve to be considered news.

Of course Katie Holmes is in a relationship with an unmedicated manic-depressive who thinks too highly of himself. No one's doubting that.

But this photo was clearly taken at a basketball game. The only "torture" Katie's suffering is the torture experienced by every woman forced to sit through a sporting event she can't stand and her husband can't play.
