We love to celebrity watch in the media. Last week I heard all about Tom Cruise's visit to Sydney and Rebel Wilson's libel trial. I also heard about rugby players who have battled ice addictions. A lot of media attention is also given to infamous people like Shapelle Corby. But what of true stories like the hundreds of thousands of Australians who live in poverty? The single mother working two jobs to support her children? The senior citizen who has no family left and is finding it difficult to find social services. The media loves to report on the uber rich, the celebrities, the athletes and rock musicians. On the other hand, the media ignores the plight of so many because they are not glamourous enough for tv.
