If not for TMZ and other "celebrity gossip" websites, the whole Donald Sterling story would not have come out. Regardless of how you feel of the outcome, or the implications thereof, it's a fact that these essentially "trash magazine" websites have taken a moral, a social, stance on an issue and broadcast it. CNN is not getting the late breaking stories on it, those places are. To me, that has MASSIVE ramifications, if this becomes a trend. Are those publications deciding to take the high road and push content which they deem morally unacceptable ahead of content that will undoubtedly get more page views? Have we, as a society, lost our sense of right and wrong (or lost our desire to determine the line) and are now getting it from the same place we visit to see celebrity nip slips? Focus: Are there larger implications to the Sterling story or is it just some racist old jerk? Alt. Focus: What are other topics where people miss "the big picture"?
