The media pay too much attention to the lives and relationships of celebrities such as actors, singers or footballers. They should spend more time reporting the lives of ordinary people instead. To what extent do you agree or disagree?
The lives of public figures get more appreciation from society. This cause mass media write more reports about them. However, many people argue that lives of ordinary persons should be informed more than the celebrities' lives. I personally agree with this opinion because those may have more meaningful story than famous people lives.
Most celebrities like actors, singers or sportsmen have glamour lifestyle. They are accustomed to live in a luxury house or use expensive facilities. As a result, people always curious about them and the mass media use this situation to get more profit. Undoubtedly, it has caused increase of information that share about those lives. However, it is less benefit for one thing that is just gives temporary entertainment. For instance, people may enjoy watching a reality show but they also may become bored soon afterward. Hence, I believe it is useless because it gives less advantage for audiences.
The media are supposed to report benefit information which gives advantages to their customers such to educate people or to inspire others. Some programs that explore ordinary lives are better than celebrities programs. For example, a program called ''Orang Pinggiran" shows lives of the poor and disability persons. It tells the spectators to be more grateful and to help others which have weaknesses. These reports are more meaningful than revealing luxury lifestyle of public figures. The reason is there is there are more important values inside of them.
In conclusion, the mass media should explore more information from ordinary people than famous one because it can share more social values such as kindness and way to be grateful. Therefore, I believe that this information is more valuable than the exploring of celebrities' lives.
