Taboid Journalism

There has been recent controversy surrounding the erronous report by Entertainment Tonight that Brad & Angie's babies were born.

The controversy seems to be that entertainment journalists have some sort of responsibility to check their facts and be as reliable as regular news journalists, and obviously ET failed to do so, since the babies are still safely in-womb.

Um, wait a second....hold on a minute here.

The things I hear on Entertainment Tonight are supposed to be true?

The day we expect entertainment reporters to hold themselves to the same ethical standard as reporters who cover things like wars and disease, is the day our society has officially imploded.
