I've been sick of Anna Nicole Smith since her first husband died.

I hate celebrity "news." It's not news, it's not important, and is taking valuable airtime away from REAL stories about the world around us--real stories that actually matter.

Until people start demanding better from the news organizations this is what they are going to get. If this is what gets people to watch the "news" this is what they are going to air.

That's why I don't watch the news. I get my news from the internet (usually the New York Times, but not exclusively.)

At least then I can skip fluff pieces if I want to.

my office has honestly been worse than a bunch of gossiping fourth graders with all this and I am shocked and appalled and faintly disillusioned.

My office was really bad too when it happened....I couldn't believe that all of these educated people, most of whom are doctors, were standing around talking about this!

All this media attention is just crazy. There are so many other IMPORTANT things that don't get enough coverage.

But here is an article about the situation that I think is right on the mark- so I recommend you read it, it's about the public response more than Anna Nicole.

http://www.commondreams.org/views07/0227-37.htm

ETA: It's pretty blunt article, so some mind find it offensive- but I do not intend to offend anyone here- just to make people think.
