The media creates that shit. Scum like MTeeHee's "Sumner Redstone" & Judy McGrath.

Lemmings love reality filth precisely because the "star" assclowns are has-beens or never-wases. It enables them to dream: "Hey - I don't have any brains or talent either! I could be a star, too!"
For proof, witness all the fruits 'n nuts that crawl out from under their slimy rocks for the American Idol auditions,
As for Howard Stern: that camel-faced bastard is badly in need of a lengthy dirtnap.
