I do not believe that the paparazzi should be banned. But I do believe that they should not take it to extremes, rushing in front of celebrities cars when they stop at a red light.

Reasons Why:

1. It is their job. It is how they get money.
2. This is what so many magazines and websites depend on today: News and pictures of celebrities.
3. Part of being a celebrity is being well known, not just on the screen, but also in real life.
4. Many people believe that paparazzi are invading into celebrities' lives too much and going to extremes in order to get one good picture. I agree, but not all are. Many just do their job without going to extremes. I do believe that something needs to be done about the lengths some are going to to get pictures, but that would be another debate. :) Also, this comes along with being a celebrity. Always being in the public eye.

Uhmm... So are you saying that you are using me to do your work? I will not just sit here and argue my points when I have nothing to rebut while giving you answers and helping you with your school work, but since my opponent has failed to rebut any of my statements, I will restate my side.

I do not believe that the paparazzi should be banned because:

1. It is their job. It is how they get money.
2. Soo many magazines and websites depend on the pictures from paparazzi.
3. Part of being a celebrity is being well known, not just on the screen, but also in real life.
4. Many people believe that paparazzi are invading into celebrities' lives too much and going to extremes in order to get one good picture. I agree, but not all are. Many just do their job without going to extremes. I do believe that something needs to be done about the lengths some are going to to get pictures, but that would be another debate.

I hope that you will take this debate to argue your points rather then a source for free information and points. :)

Precisely! Some celebrities tell the paps when they are going to be somewhere and then tell them to come. Crazy job, though.
