[Rant] Time to ignore local media: TIFF is about to begin

I wish they would stick to real news. All you hear on the local media during the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) is this star was here, they ate that, blah blah blah. The fact that Kristen Stewart arrived at the airport is not news.

I hate when the film festival is on.

I just do not think reporting on movie stars is news, but it will be the lead story on the news during the entire festival.

Well, you can always change the channel and tune into other news. Not sure if you've read this, but Miley Cyrus got a new haircut!!

Damn TIFF is actually showing a movie I want to see. Probably the only movie I've been wanting to see in a long while... and they're doing it at a time when I can't go there.

The media report on what people want to hear about.

This is just a reflection of how vapid Torontonians are.

I don't know what you're talking about, I haven't heard anything in the local news about TIFF

Of course that could be because the media is covering nothing but the assassination attempt on Tuesday.

FRIDAY 3PM – REINCARNATED press conference.
This is the Snoop film and he will more than likely be at this press conference if your looking for a picture with him.

Just typical Toronto insecurity and self-promotion. Toronto media should think of this: it will certainly not be news in LA or NY when those "stars" return home, or visit one of those cities. So why is it news when they come to Toronto? I doubt that Cannes makes that kind of a big deal out of the fact that well-known actors show up. In fact I bet that the citizens' main concern is along the lines of, "they seem quite loud -- when are they leaving?" Especially if Russell Crowe throws a telephone at one of them!

Its nothing to do with "Toronto insecurity". Many like us dont care about this. But since its Bell/CTV event it is a self promotion. That is how CTV operates. Anything on CTV is worlds most important event and news. If it is covered by CBC then its not a big news for CTV.

And you ignore the main reason is economy. It contributes 170-225 Million to Toronto economy. It like Gay pride event or Caribana.
All about money and bragging rights to CTV. or ET Canada.

As far as OP said Celebrity news is Part of News. Big time. Whether anybody likes it or not.
