So how long before TMZ staffers post pics of his corpse online?

Because anything less would be an affront to their brand of "journalism".

Iconic?

AdolfOliverPanties: Iconic?


So iconic that Subby spelled his name wrong.

Paratore.

/never heard of him before reading TFA.

Holy shiat! Paratore died?

I have to retweet this.

They'd also have to follow his widow around with a camera asking her what type of dog food she prefers. Because the people need to know these things.

Hmmm, wonder how TMZ got the scoop on their founder's death?

TMZ is awesome at what they do. They get the scoops so many times on every celebrity death and scandal first that they are the first place I go to for that type of news.

Well, they kinda got an unfair advantage for this one.

And now, this photo montage of the Santa Monica Pier, a six-foot-long hot dog, Justin Bieber's head Photoshopped on Selena Gomez's body, and that late 80's/early 90's-era clip art of a man doing a cross between powerwalking and limboing, narrated by that guy from Whacked Out Sports.

I don't get the Fark hate really. They're a thousand times better than Entertainment Tonight, People, or any of that garbage. They're actually a lot like Fark. They enjoy making fun of celebrities.

Stalking and paying to catch a person at their worst is making fun of them now? They are really just dicks, I was hoping this headline meant someone firebombed the TMZ offices and he was the first named death.

Anyone who helps paparazzi pay their rents are scum, IMO.

(CSB time) I was at a cafe in Hollywood about a year ago, and a total D-lister was at the table behind me - like so low I didn't know who it was until later. We were at tables on the sidewalk next to the street, and suddenly an SUV screeches to a stop right next to us, in the middle of traffic, and the windows come down -- I thought it was a drive-buy. Instead, a camera comes out of the back window and they snap a bunch of pictures. A few minutes later, a dude with a video camera walks right up to this guy and his date, sticking the camera in their faces and asking questions while they're trying to eat lunch. Dude told the camera guy to get lost, and he eventually walked away. Shiat just goes way too far.

I wonder what they pay. I've written far better headlines for Fark on their own stories a few times.

I don't really care about their ethics. Most of their scoops are leaked by the celebrities themselves anyways. TMZ is good at what they do and I occasionally get a chuckle from their tv show. It's basically the Fark entertainment tab televised.

I want a webstream of the funeral, complete with closeup on the widow.
 
2012-05-30 03:29:00 AM
Is he the douche on that TMZ show? The "host" or "boss" or whatever it is. The guy that yells at all the "reporters".

Yea, no shiat.

No, that's Harvey Levin.

Oh, that's not who I thought it was.

Their "TV" show is one of the most horribly annoying pieces of shiat I've ever seen.
 
2012-05-30 07:55:31 AM
He'll be staying in the Andrew Breitbart wing of Hell.
 
2012-05-30 08:20:29 AM
See ya, farkwit. I hope you farked up your finances and your daughters have to whore themselves out to make money. Then I hope the paparazzi take photos and sell them to TMZ.

This! I can't watch it for more than 15 seconds before changing the channel.

So can TMZ die now too?

twiztedjustin: So can TMZ die now too?


That would make sense. What else would happen, some web site would still greenlight submissions from a web site whose dubious, to say the least, founder died in what looks like any rational human to be a drug overdose?

I mean, who does that crap?

THIS! TMZ, and paparazzi in general, are reprehensible scumbags and are shining examples of every single farking thing that is utterly loathsome about modern culture. I assume anybody who can sit and watch that shiat must have an IQ roughly equivalent to that of a potato.

...died of an apparent heart attack Tuesday during a bike trip in France.

Was he climbing Alpe d'Huez?

When will TMZ post the blood test report?

The contents of the will? The morgue picture?

Those are harsh words but I can't bring myself to think less of someone for applying them here.
