Media Ignores Health Consequences Of Drinking And Driving Among Young Celebrities. The recent drinking and driving (DUI) arrests of celebrities Paris Hilton, Nicole Ritchie, Michelle Rodriguez and Lindsay Lohan yielded widespread news coverage, however, very little of it offered any public health context, according to a new report by researchers from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health’s Center for Injury Research and Policy. „Media are an important source of information about the consequences of alcohol consumption, and influence how individuals define acceptable behavior,“ said Katherine Smith, PhD, lead author of the study and assistant professor with the Bloomberg School’s Center for Injury Research and Policy.
