We have written quite a bit in this space about “celebrity journalism.” Here’s something new and it touches on a factor evident in the Michael Vick saga of this past year.
Remember when certain “leaders” immediately came to Vick’s defense, trying to rally support for Vick as a victim? Some of them haven’t totally quieted. That type of blinded support for celebrities in common in our society.
A new report by Cox Television’s Scott MacFarlane now reveals what government agents saw when they raided Vick’s home in rural Virginia, months before the indictment. It is an excellent use of the visual media. It takes the viewer somewhere they wouldn’t be able to go otherwise.
Now that we can see what the agents saw, and Vick sits in a jail cell, can this controversy finally be over?
