More Examples Of Media Bottom-Feeding
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have spent days denying their engagement and marriage isn't a farce and that they are not planning to break up after their baby is born in the spring. The rumor made headlines around the world, followed by their angry denial. The initial source for this shocker about one of the biggest stars in the world? Surely it was some publication with a track record in gossip and presumably they had something solid to go on. Uh no. The initial source was Life & Style magazine, which had as sources two unnamed friends of Cruise. And who is Life & Style? A mag somewhere south of Star and the National Enquirer. Every media outlet that jumped on repeating the "scoop" from Life & Style when they should have known better deserves to be sued by Cruise. It's just lazy and irresponsible to give creedence to an outlet like that.
