The big questions- Women's Weekly
I was flicking through a copy of Woman’s Weekly at lunch today, and I couldn’t help but feel sorry for the people responsible for writing up the articles. When they were young and idealistic, dreaming of breaking that one big story and the riches of journalistic integrity, did they think they would have to churn out crud such as “Prince Frederick and Mary, A Love Story”? Or “Olivia’s Love Match in Peru”? While I am sure most people are there just to pay the mortgage, am I being elitist and looking down on a job that makes a certain person happy?
As people enjoy reading this vapid shit I guess there must be people who enjoy writing it too.
