NY Post Says NY Post is Good for You

According to The New York Post, the New York Post — specifically, its gossip section Page Six — is good for you. Why? Because Dr. Samantha Boardman, an assistant attending psychiatrist at the Weill-Cornell Medical Center, wrote it on her blog.

“About 65 percent of people’s discussions involve gossip, and there is an evolutionary explanation for our fascination with other people’s lives,” explained Boardman. “The theory is that natural selection favors knowing as much as you can about other people in your social network, whether they are an authority figure, potential partner, teacher, friend, political ally or enemy.” Therefore, “You don’t have to feel guilty about reading Page Six anymore,” added Boardman.

So there you go. Feel free to talk behind peoples’ backs as often as possible. And read more Page Six, not less. Find out “Where it all went wrong for Rob Kardashian” right away. The more you know about rich strangers, the better off you’ll be.
