Bruce Willis Slams Media For Poor News Coverage

May 9th, 2006 11:03 AM

The outspoken actor Bruce Willis has taken aim at the press again. According to (hat tip to Drudge), Willis has “slammed the media for its poor news coverage, accusing the industry of deliberately ignoring serious news in favour of racy stories.” Willis is apparently “disgusted with the news reports, claiming they are frivolous and superficial rather than informative.”

In Willis’s words: “‘We go for the sensational now in the news. If it's not sensational or tantalising or making fun of someone, it seldom gets into the news.’”

As a result, Willis has banned televised news from his house:

“‘I don't watch the news anyway. I have it turned off, and I feel so much better for it. That's why I have that youthful glow about me. I don't look worried.’"

Maybe Willis has found the secret of a long, healthy life – stop watching the news. Hmmm.
