must be a slow news day

The top three "news" stories on MSNBC's afternoon lineup:

1. Anna Nicole Smith's baby daddy testifies in court
2. Photographs of kidnap/rape victim Jaycee Dugard
3. Jon Gosselin ordered to give his wife $180,000



There are only two possibilities. Either our contemporary "free press" thinks Americans are shallow, vapid idiots.

Or, they know we are.

No news is better than bad news.

Uh, that's sort of the point. There was plenty of real news to report, but those three fluff items were given precedence and valuable broadcast time over stories that actually affect the existence of normal Americans.
