Do you agree with the view that the main effect of increasing media coverage of the royal family from the 1970s onwards was to damage the image of the monarchy? Media coverage was sincerely damaging to the monarchy from the 1970s onwards. The media made the royal family seem like a celebrity family rather than a royal family, as they focused on their private lives. The media undermined the monarchy through stories of their sexual deviancies and marital mishaps. Source 15 backs up this point; it’s message is that the media has shown the royal families true colours, albeit very bland colours.

The company wanted the employees’ attitudes to change, to be more open to accepting change. The success hinged on internal structural changes. Domtar’s’ managers allowed its employees to be a part of the change not just accept it.
Celebrity worship syndrome is an obsessive-addictive disorder in which a person becomes overly involved with the details of a celebrity's personal life. These fans will often hold a crush on a major film or TV star, singer, athlete or celebrity. The degree of devotion to celebrities can range from a simple crush to the deluded belief that they have a special relationship with the star which does not exist. In extreme cases, this can switch to hate of the previously loved celebrity, and result in attempts at violent attacks, one notable incident being the death of Rebecca Schaeffer by a stalking fan in 1989. Psychologists have indicated that though many people obsess over glamorous film, television, sport and pop stars, the only common factor between them is that they are all figures in the public eye.
The culture of celebrity is an increasingly pervasive phenomenon that is made even more treacherous in the fact that it touches almost every American’s life. While many hold the conventional belief that celebrity dogma and vicarious living are mere entertainment and thus harmless, the public’s rising propensity towards celebrity worship and mindless ingestion of manipulated and often inaccurate information set forth by the media and popular public figures greatly contributes to the rising anti-intellectualism, anti-rationalism, and overall incompetence in detecting our willful consumption of junk thought. If society is unable to recognize the repercussions celebrity culture will have on our collective ability to distinguish legitimate news from the erroneous and furthermore continues to advocate a general reluctance to transpose our rapturous enthusiasm from Britney Spears to issues far more worthy of our attention, such as war in Afghanistan, the climbing rates of foreclosure and unemployment, and global warming, the consequences will become progressively severe. The current and future implications of this seemingly innocuous movement include debased public discourse and politics, the proliferation of misinformation and erroneous reports relating to health issues and more, a diversion from intellectual endeavors, and an overall rejection of rationality. Celebrity culture and our nation’s infatuation with it is playing a significant role in producing a generation that is increasingly devoid of a defined criterion to assess the precariousness in conforming to the credo of a dumbed-down society where intellectualism and rationalism have far less value than the recklessly enticing ideas set forth by the mouthpieces of junk thought.
Stakeholders can boycott, regulate policies, sue for compensation, leverage on social media influence and even remove CEOs from their position. At times, stakeholders combine powers and form coalitions to achieve a common goal. Due to globalisation, companies looking to con customers to increase revenue with several methods are finding it increasingly difficult to do so. Society is also changing its expectations of beauty companies and is requesting for them to stop falsely claiming positive results of their beauty products or forming unrealistic beauty ideals, while questioning their ethics of untruthful advertising to children. They are also pushing beauty companies to promote causes aligned with the products they sell.
I think that the media do not respect celebrity’s private lives. As human beings, we all deserve some level of privacy. But when you're a celebrity, privacy holds another meaning. Most celebrities accept the fact that they will be followed by paparazzi the minute they step out their doors; after all, it does come with the territory. Celebrities spend a significant amount of time in front of the cameras, so it seems inevitable that some parts of their private lives will get out.
