Mika Brzezinski & the Media

If you are sick and tired of watching news that isn't supposed to be news, you're gonna love this.

Mika Brzezinski of MSNBC refused to cast the lead story about Paris Hilton when on air, and she even made an attempt to burn the script and shred the script papers - Live on air on a 7.00 am prime time news show. Why did she do that? The lead story about Paris Hilton's jail episode was forced on her by her superiors, and she thought it was too frivolous to be a lead story.

Read: I have a new hero and her name is Mika.

It's amazing that one among the media has stood up against all baloney and gossips elevated to news for want of TRP ratings. It's an ethical question alright - should media deal with real news or gossip - that people want to hear?

I personally hate Paris Hilton and everything revolving her since she doesn't deserve to be a serious celebrity that she is - And she is a celebrity just because she's a heiress of Hilton empire and because of a leak of her private sex video, both of which doesn't qualify a person to become a celebrity. She isn't even good looking, for heaven's sake!

You lead Mika! Make her the CEO of our masala (Times) group!

But still there is a debate going on whether what Mika did was stage managed or not..

Finally a sensible news reader , I don't know whoever Mika is.
It was really sick watching news channels rant abt Paris Hilton all the time.I guess the media is overdoing it a lot now-a-days be it Paris Hilton or the iPhone , be it our NDTV or anyother channel in the US!
