Are Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner Being Courted for Exclusive Divorce Statement?
With the marriage of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner hanging by a thread and rumors of divorce rampant, the media is watching their every move, their personal interaction, the photos of the couple out and about and anything else they can get their hands on. The public is watching the married couple of 9 years and 360 days and waiting to see if they are going to announce a divorce or if they are going to remain together and make it to their 10 year anniversary.
In the mean time, the magazines and the internet are reporting on everything the couple is doing. And we mean everything. Down to the moving trucks that are in front of the couple’s house for their alleged re-decorating that will be happening very soon. With the exception of one magazine, People Magazine. People magazine, the most reputable magazine outlet out there, has remained silent on the topic of Ben and Jen’s divorce and were called out on their silence.
The online website, Gawker has accused the magazine of courting the couple so they get the exclusive on the status of their relationship. In other words, People Magazine hasn’t mentioned a thing about any type of trouble in paradise with the couple. While the magazine has reported on the couple – it has been all the fluffy, feel good stuff including the couple stepping out for lunch together, Jennifer Garner smiling while in Los Angeles and moving trucks at their home for renovations.
In the meantime, other websites have been reporting similar items but adding something regarding their unhappy union. For example, Jen and Ben step out for lunch amid divorce rumors is a common theme, as is the couple fighting for their marriage.
The website is claiming the reason for the non-existent coverage of Ben and Jen’s marriage is because the website is ‘thirsty’ for the big news, if and when it comes, the news that Ben and Jen’s marriage is over. That the couple are getting a divorce. Is this true? Not necessarily. Is it possible People Magazine doesn’t know how the couple are doing? They don’t know if the couple are having marital problems or if it is all just rumors. The magazine is not in the business of speculating but rather reporting the facts. The fact is that unless Ben Affleck or Jennifer Garner call someone at People Magazine, there will be no reporting on the state of their marriage. There will be no speculation. There will be no news.
What do you think about People Magazine’s lack of reporting on Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner’s marriage. Are they courting the couple or just trying to get the exclusive if and when any breaking news comes? Leave a comment and let us know.
