    I cannot for the life of me understand why people such as Nadya get all this attention for something they should be getting attention for!?
    The girl had all these kids FOR media attention and to get famous....all the wrong reasons to have kids!

    She isn't the only one...the VA Tech shooting was another prim example....he WANTED to be on TV and all over the media...SO why is media encouraging this behavior and give them what they want!?!

    SORRY I really need to vent about it!!

    The outcry if a homosexual was too breed all this misery, and was guilty of irresponsible breeding. Down here in Oz, she would be getting paid a shit load from the tax payer too.icon_rolleyes.gif

    sensationalist crap -> larger viewership -> higher ad rates -> increased profit

    don't blame the media. blame the media consumers.

    I agree ... I turn off the TODAY show every time she comes on. With the world going to hell in a handbasket, why the spend 10 minutes every morning on this woman and her Magic Uterus is beyond me.

    The Iraqi media doesn't seem to care about her (she's first generation).

    Then again, people over there are probably more worried about exploding cars than about exploding vaginae.

    1. Uterus gets exposure.
    2. Uterus gets lucrative book deal.
    3. Taxpayer gets relief.
    4. Dumb people get something to read between Disney movie releases.

    So little news makes it to the television media. A huge majority of Americans will never care about this woman (and I doubt a majority even know about her). But a media corporation can make good money on the ratings of just a few million people.

    When they cite statistics, like, 3 million people watch Inside Edition (which would be an awesome night for them, BTW), that's less than 1% of the American population. They are just lazy, getting paid for doing little work, and enjoying the intellectual desert that is their (1%) demographic.

    So many more people get their news elsewhere. That's why everyone on TV acted surprised that the election between Obama and McCain wasn't close. Few polls said they were close, but if you watched TV, you'd have thought it was a neck-and-neck horse race.

    Don't watch TV.

    For the same reason she's rewarded with a discussion thread on RJ. I can sum up my feelings in one phrase: It's a vagina not a clown car!

    because sadly it's true too many are soooo interested.
    for example I could care less that celebity x and his/her celebrity mate had a child or what the child looks like - but - they get paid MILLIONS for that cover photo because soooo many of us just have to know!!!

    Basically it's a crying shame as to what we consider entertaining these days. The Octomom has found her golden ticket and she's gonna ride it out til it runs dry. What she has done is completely and moral wrong. Very disturbing that someone like her is even in exsistence. I like how she isn't being held responsible for any of this and how CA is practically fitting the bill for her irresponsiblity.

    On some level you have to almost admire her. She's making out like a bandit with all this face time. She herself ins't newsworthy. what she has done happens all the time. The only difference is that she just happened to have some many kids all at once. She's basically an over glorified welfare case.

    I watched 7 minutes of her nonsense and came to that conclusion and then switiched it over to Animal Planet only to be plagued with a show showing dogs giving birth to huge litters of pups. I just laughed. "From one bitch to another" I said and then feel alseep.

    We're a freakshow culture. As long as news program revenues are tied to advertising we'll see new scrapes on the bottom of the barrel.

    Octopussy is a perfect story because it comments on gender, sex, morality, motherhood, religion, ethics, money, class... it is the perfect topic for a pile-on.

    I think the wretch should have those kids taken away from her and placed with parents that will value the kids well-being over their own famewhoring and starfucking.

    If only she was a lesbian and/or in a wheelchair that would have made it even more polarizing.

    I guess I am having more of an issue with the fact that the "media" is encouraging this behavior..

    Iam in a management class at PSU right now...and we're learning how people respond to things and how to create behavior you want.
    Its not even E! news or any of those...we get the Wall St. Journal at school for free and there was a FRONT page article on there of how sheep in New Zealand are causing global warming because they belch!

    There fore I DO blame the media for putting it on! They could influence other behavior that would get their ratings high...instead of encouraging this behavior!!

    I know people are always going to WANT to know....I mean we are curious creatures......but all this is doing is saying..."HEY...you want to be known and popular (even if it is for the wrong reasons), shoot up a school or mall, push out tons of kids you can't afford in hopes you get a reality TV show, at like a total douche bag!!.....and you just might be famous for a month!!"

    Of course the media is encouraging this behavior. Reality TV created a mass appetite for bizarre junk-culture, and the beast has to be fed. Blame the people who actually want to watch this stuff. Also blame the doctor who did the fertilization. Perhaps he's already cut his own media deal?

    Don't blame Octomom. She's not stupid, she's just an attention whore who wanted her 15 minutes and succeeded beyond her wildest dreams.

    I have to apologize to you guys, because I'm probably the person that is keeping this story in the media. I have a strange fascination with train wrecks...and this one is on the way to being one of the biggest ones ever.

    She disgusts me and I am over the coverage. She's had her 15 minutes. Poor kids...
