Celebrity Trials in the Media on DVD

When the big business of news media comes to town on the trail of a sensational celebrity trial, lives are changed. Stars are created. Ethical barriers shattered. The trials develop into defining cultural events, dividing communities and dominating lunchroom banter with tales of murder, sex and scandal. But why is it news? Centered around the Kobe Bryant case and the Michael Jackson case, filmmaker Brian Malone chronicles the extraordinary activities in Eagle, Colorado and in Santa Maria, California from the very first hearing; turning the camera on the cameras. CELEBRITY TRIALS IN THE MEDIA dramatically confronts one of the most pressing issues facing modern media-the constant pressure on television news organizations for ratings and money. The film examines how celebrity scandals are low-hanging fruit and discredits TV news as an institution. As one reporter notes, "If you show up, you're guaranteed a story".
