    so- im posting this for conversation and opinions.

    yesterday on cnn- the interview with mel gibson was on debate-

    basically- mel got upset (etc...) when they (the 2 interviewers- 2 different events- brought up the events of 4 yrs ago) mel got upset... etc...

    my thoughts:
    we all make mistakes, and i have figured out that if one is famous- these mistakes are supersized- (in terms of tv, radio, internet, etc...) i feel for these people. because no one is perfect and we all make mistakes.

    i imagine making an error in judgement/drinking too much/stressed/ tired/ weak.... and having it caught on tape for the ENTIRE world to see- and then brought up again - on national tv no doubt- 4 years later, again. that would hurt. i know in my own personal life that when i make a mistake- i dont really like the " i told you so"...... especially 4 yrs later. (can you imagine; "remember when you did this....")( also i dont always dress perfectly -not the right heels/ no make up/and look like i came back from forks.... ;))

    i have known a few strong people, who are stellar- but i also know we make mistakes. i do. im grateful that i am not that popular that someone would film and publish the error.

    basically- sometimes- i wish more people would give others a break....

    (im scared to post this- but i will- hoping to have some good conversation and enlightenment.)

    do you really think that we should rehash these weak moments on national tv?
    ? dont we have anything else to talk about?
    ? are we really so mean?...

  2. People are far too critical of each other...however, on here I think we can all give our opinions and still be empathetic. Interviewers don't often have the intelligence to think of new material, IMO. And yes, any one of us in a similar situation (w/out the fame) would get upset over it.
  3. ^^^ thank for this.

    its nice to be on the same "wave length" as others sometimes.

  4. No.
    You would think.
    Yes. People can be very mean.

    I think there are two dynamics that fuel this kind of media:

    1) the kind of people who can't look away for the same reason they can't look away from a car crash


    2) people who feel better about themselves if they can demonize another person and the more famous, the better.

    People can be very voyeuristic. Or just plain hateful.
