MSNBC presenter refuses to do and then shreds Paris Hilton story live on air


www.dailymail.co.uk

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.

I applaud her and I want to spread the word about this. I support real journalism and real journalists. She has made my day much brighter, knowing that there are real people on the news who live in reality.

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!

At one time there were Two different kinds of programs.

Inside Edition which covered the crap and where Bill O'Reilly got his start, Entertainment Tonight with John Tesh and Leeza Gibbons, and a whole channel the E Channel which at that time was dominated by that crap and Joan Rivers. Something happened in the past maybe seven to five years where the two got confused.

I wana comment anyways,
She deserves a promotion. It's about time someone

Reminded me of Tommy Chong on MSNBC:

Cheers for Tommy Chong and Mika Brzezinski!

She's going to get in trouble for this, but I applaud her actions. I am as tired as all of you at turning on the TV and hearing (insert meaningless crap about Paris here) on the news or on a commercial.

Someone should give Mika a medal. She has done a great public service.

This woman has some serious cahones.

If only there were more like her, we might actaully get reports on actual news versus the drunken musings of a waste like Paris.

It will be a shame if this woman faces repercussions from MSNBC, but this was the bravest thing I have seen on the news since Colin Powell demanded that the camera be put back on him after he voiced some non-bushy remarks, live on air.

You go girl!!!

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

What a pity no one at Faux News has the level of integrity that Brzezinski had, because the sad thing is that you're right.

The only reason I heard about this is because it's a slow day at work and I ran out of news to read.
