I actually do not believe that this is a example of good journalism, because it is very bias. It is one-sided about the life of Elizabeth Taylor.

The article is not really insightful tyo me, because it is not very insightful. The reader does not learn anything from the article. It touches on some of the movies she appeared in as well as her many failed marriages, but I dont feel like the article was touching on her actual life story and how she was influential in Hollywood.

I think that as time goes on, celebrities like Liz Taylor have become Hollywood starlet's desired goal for achievement in a way. I thought it a very interesting choice for them to cast former child star Lindsay Lohan as Liz Taylor in the film and had not previously known that Liz had also been a child star whose career grew with her into adulthood. I feel like there's another interesting parallel being made in the casting of Lindsay Lohan as Liz and that would be their controversial reputations. There even was a little passive hint at ...
