Well if they want to go prancing around the bend, then they should (be forced to) finish the full turn instead of parking at the apex. The newspaper (and/or media in general) should be forced to pay the subject of the article for using the content that they (the subject) actually created by making a spectacle of themselves. Because the news media doesn't actually create content...the subjects of their articles actually create the content by engaging is some form of interesting antics. The news media simply makes written or video taped observation about the story/content that some poor sods fate has actually created.
Well said. I've often wondered about that. It's amazing how often in these kinds of situations you very quickly hear, "Oh, but that's different..."
They do pay for stories sometimes, but those tend to be tabloid stuff, like nude pictures of celebs and whatnot. Hey, that could be helpful for Lindsay Lohan's financial troubles...
