If you look at any media you will find an avalanche of photos and articles about celebs. The country has gone nuts over them. Take a look at the New York Daily News website and try to find a story/photos that is not celeb- or sleez- oriented. And of course the photographer is the bad guy here, not the How Much Skin Can I Show Aktress or the people who buy the crappy tabloids at the grocery store or the people who gawk on the Internet.
In the Olde Daze if a celeb photo sold for the price of a new car the photog thought he broke the bank at Monte Carlo. Now you can get a couple of a million bucks for the right shot. What kind of people do you think join that parade? And is it their fault? I do not know that every photog except those "pesky insects" go to church every Sunday and always obey the Golden Rule and do not pass wind at the Bishop's tea party. But there is an old saying -- don't judge a man until you have walked a mile in his shoes. That way, you'll be a mile away and you'll have his shoes.
