Of Alec, Lindsay, Britney, Paris, and the Hoff

Here we are in the midst of an election cycle with our military in Iraq and Afghanistan, Putin and Bush in a war of words, a G8 summit, Iran possibly going nuclear...the list goes on and on. What do I see when I turn on the TV at lunch today? Fox, CNN, and MSNBC are all showing clips of Paris Hilton going to court, and it's not even just a 5 minute blurb about it. They're covering it as if it's real news.

So let's get this straight. I don't watch the news to find out about Alec Baldwin calling his daughter a pig. That's none of anyone's business. Who cares if Hasselhoff is a drunk? Britney? Shave your head all you want...I don't care. Lindsay? Paris? NOT NEWS!

Hopefully the Internet will soon send 24 hour cable news the way of the newspaper.
