Political news coverage as celebrity gossip

Last night, I posted an item noting that most national news coverage is about politics: political figures and government activities, neglecting many other news stories: How mass media distorts our view of the world | SocialPanic.org – Occupy Propaganda
I heard an observation that media’s political coverage is mostly celebrity gossip. Their coverage is the presumed high-brow equivalent of celebrity gossip found on the entertainment pages – but fundamentally, most of it is just gossip, most of which is not much different from what we called “drama” in middle school.
