Liberals want Celebrities to Commit Career Suicide in Order to Stop Trump

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Remember that nifty biology class where you first learned about symbiotic relationships?  

How about the weird relationship between the grey wolves and striped hyenas?  Hyenas are known as lone hunters, but have learned to adapt and work with wolves because of their amazing hunting skills, while the wolves are impressed with the incredible smelling abilities of hyenas.

Then there are the crabs that carry the poisonous sea urchins.  For the crab, they have their own bodyguard on their backs.  Meanwhile, the sea urchin enjoys free and quick rides.

“I think they have come to realize that you can profoundly change society through the media.  The reality star candidate is now President of the United States.”

How about the celebrities out there and the media which covers them?  This is probably the one that people see most often.  Journalists need an interesting story or beautiful face for one of their rags, while celebrities need an article about them or a picture of them seen with others who are influential, in order to stay relevant.

A growing number of liberal journalists want celebrities to abandon this important relationship to their trade because of the sheer number of these media that are connected to Donald Trump.  Marlow Stern wrote at the Daily Beast that it was time for the “Hollywood Resistance” to “Abandon Trump’s Tabloid Enablers.” He goes on to quote a report that suggests that the National Enquirer actually developed stories in direct cooperation with the Trump presidential campaign.

…on June 15, Enquirer publisher American Media Inc. (AMI) announced that it had purchased a number of celebrity magazines from the German publisher Bauer: In TouchLife & Style and Closer. Having already acquired Us Weekly in 2017—and OK! and Star previously—it now controls every single celebrity weekly not named People

Most celebrities would have no problem abandoning the National Enquirer, since if they are in that publication it is usually because they are in trouble.  Rarely will one actually see an interview between a legitimate celebrity and the National Enquirer.  If there are quotes, they are usually from secondary sources.  But Stern is not asking celebrities to give up that which they never pursued.  He wants so much more than that.

The article states “Well, on June 15, Enquirer publisher American Media Inc. (AMI) announced that it had purchased a number of celebrity magazines from the German publisher Bauer: In TouchLife & Style and Closer. Having already acquired Us Weekly in 2017—and OK! and Star previously—it now controls every single celebrity weekly not named People (it tried to obtain People before Time Inc.’s sale to Meredith), granting it a near-monopoly on tabloid-magazine “news.” Pre-Bauer deal, AMI boasted that it had a combined total circulation of over 5.3 million, reaching 51 million people each month (and 61 million unique visitors monthly online).”  Cutting oneself off such an incredibly huge media reach is the equivalent of committing career suicide for those who are celebrities.

A growing number of liberal journalists want celebrities to abandon this important relationship to their trade because of the sheer number of these media that are connected to Donald Trump.

Celebrities that do decide to take on this challenge will likely be trashed in National Enquirer style stories or, worst still, be ignored by them.  Remember the adage, “bad media is better than no media at all.”

As a side issue, many have to be wondering about why AMI made such an aggressive grab in such a specific field of media? We visited with Kevin Price, Host of the nationally syndicated Price of Business show and an editor of this site, he said, “I think they have come to realize that you can profoundly change society through the media.  The reality star candidate is now President of the United States. There are likely many voters that will form their views from an AMI publication rather than from CNN. Through the power of media, ‘B’ and ‘C’ level stars that have pro-Trump or conservative inclinations will be given puff pieces in these media as AMI helps them move up in their stature.  Meanwhile, they can attack those ‘A’ level celebrities that goes against their agenda.”

The changes in celebrity rags are a harbinger of things to come for liberals.  They should be very nervous.
