Everything nowadays seems to be a scandal--from innocent mistakes to offhand comments, everything becomes a "big" issue. This article explains it fairly well [http://www.billboard.com...].

Do you think this phenomenon is real? If so, is it healthy or unhealthy, and why?

It's called the media trying to use sensationalism for profits, and I don't know as to whether or not it is related to psychological health in any way.

I didn't necessarily mean psychological health.

I think 'scandal' has always been prevalent in modern society, it seems as though it's less significant issues that are scandalized now though. Like petty disputes between people, or someone's breasts coming out of their dress or them being seen sunbathing topless.

Or like someone being photographed giving oral $ex to 19 dwarfs, covered in dwarf semen, while grapes and dwarf balls are being dangled in their face.
