We are at the point in this shit show where time is relative and nobody remembers anything. If there was a real timeline, you’d think the press would, for the most part, stick to the vague series of events instead of doing this:
A few weeks ago, I mentioned that Harvey Levin is not dumb. In fact, he’s an extremely adept businessman who wouldn’t be covering this non-story if there wasn’t something in it for him.
I believe the same about Jess Cagle, Editor of People. You don’t make it to Jess’ position by being a lazy businessman or making bad moves and just so we’re all clear about the kind of reach People has:
“PEOPLE.com is the No. 1 celebrity magazine website, with a reach of more than 40 million unique users and more than 1 billion pageviews. Powered by an extensive team of editors and writers, PEOPLE.com provides an unrivaled 360-degree look at star lives via several channels—the A-Z celebrity bio database, News, Photos, Moms & Babies, Pets, TV Watch, Video and StyleWatch”
When they are doing what seems like beating a dead horse to the fandom between The Devil Yacht ™, Danielle, the birth and ensuing weeks, Pandora/cheating “scandal”, etc, and now this? You have to ask why. What’s coming next that requires what we’re seeing right now because anything in the present is usually a harbinger of the next thing and though I never let myself think too far ahead, sometimes I wonder why all of this is necessary if it’s just going to stay as is.
Harvey has a policy about outing and TMZ wouldn’t be the place to sell that story willingly, anyway, since they’re celebrity scandal and the only way coming out is a scandal is if it’s outing, which again, Harvey will not do.
People is playing along just like they always have and always will. It’s served them well for over five decades and they’re not going to stop betting on that hand now.
If only DeRay Mckesson was keeping cows on government land and refusing to pay the rent. Or occupying a federal wildlife refuge by force. Then he’d be a “patriot” and an “activist” and he’d get good press from Fox “News”.
I’ll take Deray “burning things down” over a Republican like Snyder poisoning the people’s water. Good luck to Deray! #Love it!
The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.
