WHAT DID YOU THINK of celebrity gossip writer Howard Gensler?
Here are a few things that stood out for me:
- Tommy Lee Jones dresses well but is kind of a jerk.
- Eva Mendes? Also kind of a jerk.
- Celebrities are public figures and publicity whores.
- It's not easy being a beat writer, even on pop culture stuff. It takes knowledge of trends and history to be good at the job.
- News is disposable.
- Gossip news is an enjoyable break between the news and sports. You don't have to take it that seriously.
- Publicity agents try to manipulate the media to make their clients look good.
- If you spite Howard, he may write awful things about you.
- Junkets tarnish the image of the media outlet.
- Howard loves Bennifer.
- And he thinks marijuana should be legalized.
