While the Media Was A-Whoring... 

Memo to news editors everywhere: Paris Hilton is not news. Her arrest, imprisonment and, now, imminent release is a non-story. The only reason it appears to be a story is because you, the corporate media gate-keepers, keep flogging it harder than a submissive customer in a Japanese S&M brothel.

It is not news. It's not important. Contrary to what you seem to think, the majority of your audience could not care one absolute tiny iota less about it.

Meanwhile, while you were busy devoting so much air time to nothing, other things have been happening in the world...Those are just a few of the items that aren't getting covered, even as the news has become All Paris, All the Time.

Fuck Paris Hilton. Fuck the corporate news media. Give us the real news, or just honestly label your programming as Celebrity Tabloid Crap.
