To television bosses, it may have seemed a moment of onscreen madness.
But to viewers fed up with the whole Paris Hilton saga, it was a long-awaited outbreak of sanity.
American newsreader Mika Brzezinski, co-presenter of MSNBC's Morning Joe programme, refused to read out the story of the celebrity socialite's release from jail ahead of items on Iraq and developments at the White House.

These days it's almost as if there needs to be 2 very different styles of news programmes.
One that tells the real news, that effects real people and places. Then another that deals with all the crap, infotainment, crap and Paris Hilton stories.
The fact that the editiors feel that Paris is more important than Iraq and political developments just goes to show what a thin, brainless world that we live in.
Kudos to Mika Brzezinski!

Too bad it was on MSNBC, which means nobody saw it. If this happened on FOX News, everyone would have heard about it.
