It is interesting to have a snapshot insiders view of how the media works these days.  I also often wonder how on earth TMZ repeatedly gets these celeb stories first:

The other problem is that emergent media (online) is making it extremely difficult to suppress titillating stories involving celebrities. Mainstream media houses are now afraid that if they do not carry certain types of information they will be seen as not serving the interests of their audience. TMZ was the first media outlet to announce Michael Jackson's death. They did this long before CNN was able to do so. Mainstream media now often picks up on what is happening online. In this new paradigm, mainstream media outlets are constantly forced to respond as quickly to the salacious stories in order to not be totally left behind. Intense competition also means that the aim is now to be entertaining rather than informative. A titillating story is usually much cheaper to carry and has far more entertainment value than an investigative piece.
