Do you think a politician's private life is newsworthy? These days the media is full of celebrities including politicians reviews. I don't think people should be reading this much about other people lives, specially when the media turns the news in its own interests. I don't think such news are objective.

hi lindery! yup! i think that a politician's private life is newsworthy. i think people are more interested in what they do behind closed doors rather than their achievements in public office. it is gossip you know and people love gossip. i dunno, i guess it is human nature to know that a famous personality is just human after all. i think that is that mentality that makes us want to follow the lives of superstars and politicians or any public figure for that matter. which is why i don't want to be in the limelight, i don't want people prying into my private life. i would like to keep my private life at that--private. take care and God bless you! happy mylotting! :-D

We are who we are, 24/7. A person can't be crooked in his private life, but honest and ethical at work.

I agree. I really don't need to know there personal stuff. I think that their politics and business are important but what there kids are doing is not.
