feed a currently questionable fascination


The massive and sensational coverage feeds a currently questionable fascination in American society with personalities rich, famous, allegedly glamorous, and often outrageous.

I have trouble interpreting the line in bold. Could you rephrase it so that it's easier to understand? Thanks.

    the media are trying to satisfy the American public's interest in rich, famous, often poorly-behaved 'celebrities'.

    The word 'questionable' means that the writer thinks that America's fascination with these people is in very bad taste.
