The media circus surrounding this sad, sad story has pained me, so I really needed this. While the Bush administration is using the New York Times again to sell dubious claims about why we need to attack another middle eastern country, our entire media establishment (with rare exception) has morphed into the 24-hour National Enquirer Network. It's Jon-Benet all over again. You just gotta love these politically expedient stories.
The Daily Show can really skewer the MSM like no other. The part about Dobbs and Wolfie is sheer genius. And you knew they would somehow involve Geraldo.
"Move over crazy astronaut in diapers! The media unleashed a full-scale coverage orgy, with CNN at one point going ninety minutes without a commercial...making the death of Anna Nicole Smith a more significant news event than a State of the Union address and slightly less than 9/11."
