Angelina Joly, Bill Clinton, George Clooney - Fusing Celebrity Status With News Content

This weekend you could catch former President Clinton on AIDS on CNN, George Clooney on Darfur on ABC's This Week and CNN's Late Edition and a "rare interview" with Angelina Joly in Africa on tonight's NBC's Dateline. All worthy appearances by celebrities to raise awareness, provoke action etc, etc. One must conclude that without them TV news executives would find far away stories such as those of the Darfur genocide hard to package for a mass TV audience.
