Is Gwyneth Paltrow’s trial compelling enough for the media, the general public?


The press longed for a celebrity trial in the great tradition of OJ Simpson.

That murder case captured the full national attention in front of social media. It provides news outlets with endless content and enough ratings to keep their inventory full. Every outlet from NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” to local news stations hangs on every new reveal, no matter how small.

The most puzzling example of media overreach? “Tonight program” Sketches of Ito dancing.

More recently, last year’s Amber Heard/Johnny Depp trial was similarly shocking, although the benefits of their split were significantly lower than the former’s double murder case. Plus, the celebrity trial ended before it became ingrained in the culture.

The media can expect the current Gwyneth Paltrow imbroglio to have longer legs.

The 50-year-old Oscar winner is confronting a senior citizen alleging she bumped into him on the slide in 2016, causing him permanent brain damage.

The details of the case are complex, which will affect the mass appeals of the trial. In addition, Paltrow Unofficial break in recent years has reduced but not cleared her celebrity cache.

Her company Goop, proved resounding success despite the ridicule of the media choose productkept the “Shakespeare in Love” star in the headlines.

The experiment is generating some attention so far. News stations hope that live coverage of the scene will increase our focus on the trial. Type in the appropriate terms in YouTube’s search engine and you’ll see a variety of media streaming the trial.

They thought, or hoped, it would help draw attention to the case.

It goes without saying that there is little hard news value to this case. The man sued Paltrow for more than $300,000 in damages, the amount of which can be found in the superstar’s couch cushions. She is suing the opposite $1.00 plus attorney’s fees.

In a healthy media environment, the case will be of interest to the main players and their respective families.

That’s it.

Yes, it is tragic that the 76-year-old retired man is said to have suffered brain damage from the collision, but that was not harsh enough to attract public attention. It is also unclear whether the psychiatric problems stemmed from the collision or from pre-existing medical conditions.

News value now means very little to today’s journalists. They often skip over the stories that really matter (Twitter file…Hunter Biden’s laptop) in order to focus on the stories that fit their progressive worldview.

However, when it comes to celebrity trials, any chance of a ratings success is enough to try a full-blown press treatment.
