Have you ever noticed how parasites destroy their host? For example, the tape worm eats the host's food before it gets to the host and the host eventually starves to death. When human parasites and worms eat their way through a person's body they destroy the immune system and leave the host prey to infections that can potentially kill.
Have you ever noticed how the news media treats celebrities? It is just the same as how any other parasite works and just as repulsive. Take a look at some gutter press magazine such as "US" or "In Touch" and you will see exactly what I mean.
L. Ron Hubbard put it best when he said: "News media is parasitic on those who make news. It is not true that those who make news need the news at all. Who needs cancer?"
