For the sake of publicity and selling, important figures, their lifestyles are usually targeted. Unimportant and irrelevant news, that usually have no importance are given priority and due to a reason or the other, they get into the minds of the viewers and in this ways many times, important political, economical and sociological news get neglected and gradually, identities lose their importance!
