Why media managers love Hello!

The happy, smiley world of Hello! recreates something a bit like the relationship between the media and celebrities in the 1950s - closet doors firmly shuttered, skeletons unremarked. Take, for example, the report on Amy Winehouse's appearance at Paris Fashion Week. Possibly the only thing written about her in the last six months NOT to mention drugs, crack or unsuitable husbands in chokey.

[Edited to add in the all-important "not" - thanks, Robin]

Surely "*not* to mention drugs" etc?

Indeed. And crack is a drug. *pedantry ends*
