How To Lose Friends And Alienate People

This is the first book I've read in full in a while. If you don't know, it's mainly about Conde Nast and Vanity Fair (a magazine the author describes as "People magazine for those whose lips don't move while they read"). Anyway, part of the book sheds some light on the attitudes of people high up in celebrity culture in the US:

"I overheard the folowing exchange between two women scanning the morning papers in Vanity Fair's publicity department:

First Woman: Some plane went down over the Atlantic. Two hundred fifty-six people killed.
Second Woman: Anyone on it?
First Woman: Nah."
