i hope they fired herif u dont want to read it that`s fine and dandybut u are paid to read it.deal with it ladylol
she went a bit insane =/
If only every other journalist would take out a lighter and burn their news sheets if it was about Paris Hilton...
But no, haven`t been by a bookstore yet. I normally go once every few months with a list of selections recommended by friends, the internet, that had a funny name, etc. And just grab other random sh*t while I`m there.
It`s on the list, and I`ll make it a point to PM you with my thoughts on it. Dawkins, right?
Im sure it be a much less hated nation.
i like this woman.she`s awesome.
Well I don`t think that it is fair for you to call all UK people `Fags`. Just as it isn`t okay for anyone else to stereotype people from the US.But you surely understand that by stating what you did, you only showed the exact same behaviour as those people.At least make a mature point, instead of resorting to the same methods used by the exact type of people you are trying to condone.
I applaud her efforts. I`m with the female on this one.
and all your comments or posts are so ignorant and gay, I mean grow up dude ur already in the 18-29 group so my opinion: respect others, you can scream "fcuk america!" all you like but you know what you`re ging to get if you do that.
i was sick of turning on the tv to the same video clip of paris hilton walking out of jail. sure, it was news that she went to jail, but her getting out really isnt interesting at all. i`d understand it as a side story but any further is just ridiculous.
to hell with that skank. I`ve seen hobos cleaner than here
Of course they not supposed to be non-bias, but they all are. You can tell how bias they are not by what stories they present, but how they present them. For example, you could tell that GMA was bias because they couldn`t go through a complete story with out constantly reminding you of how many troops had died or been injured that day.
clearly, the news has been canceled and replaced with these s#!tty stories.
Bert10099, you clearly have no idea what I was hinting at. The fallacy of your argument is that you allowed IAB viewership trends to reflect a whole society of people and that`s just bad statistics any way you cut it. Your end statement may be valid (I don`t care if it is, that`s not my point), but your methods are deplorable.
Chances are that nobody will read this, but hell at least I feel better now.
I changed my mind. I want someone, anyone, who ***lives in the United States***, to prove me wrong. Anyone.
no it`s because News about some drubken slut who bitches about her hair and make-up and dresses her chihuahua in tiffany`s diamonds and prada getting out of jail after a severely reduced sentence none the less is not news.
and a true journalist would agree
"shes shy! look at that strut! dont take pictures of me!!"
haha love it. :)
No news to report?-Medicare-Immigration-Problems in the White House-Natural Disaters-Foriegn affairs-North Korea and nuclear possibilities-Terrorism-Economy-School funding-Deaths-The WAR in Iraq and Afghanistan
There`s a list of things you can get some news on. But, once you just "get it out of the way" then you can report something on Paris Hilton.
Once you get the deaths of our soldiers "out of the way."
Overmann said:"I`m glad people like you aren`t responsible for any serious statistical data analysis."
Not to mention, everything that thing has done (again, I speak of Paris Hilton), circulates of all 7 deadly sins simultaneously?
If anything, all that it, as well as news of it, is doing to America, or the world, is killing everyone like a virus. If not via STDs, then as a moral, or intellectual virus. I mean, STUPID PEOPLE ARE WORSHIPING HER AS A MESSIAH!!
WTF?! Something is really screwed up about this.
that newslady FTW
Value not money nor ratings. Do not succumb to peer pressure, be not intimidated. If you can succeed in life following that blueprint; you have already outlived a majority of the world.
Now adapt it to a network or company, if they can succeed without succumbing to crap like everyone else would normally, and take on a revolutionary approach that supports our laws and re-encforces our integrity as a nation maybe that`s the ideal path to go. Sure, it would take time, but it would last much longer in the long run.
That`s just my opinion however.
Paris Hilton rakes in ratings from the stupid people, and if there`s nothing else to show, you show what brings in the ratings (and even if there is other things worth showing, ratings come first).
I applaud her for ripping up that "news" article.
Anything that Paris does isn`t new. That`s why we have VH1, MTV, and E!. If it ain`t new, or if it`s pointless news, let them report it; not MSNBC or CNN or any local or national news.
Once more, I applaud. Thank God for smart women.
I`m glad people like you aren`t responsible for any serious statistical data analysis.
I whole-heartedly agree with Brzezinski. The quality of news in the United States has gradually deteriorated over the past years and I`m glad someone in the industry, on live television no less, decided to take a stand.
SHE IS A WITCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The BBC isn`t perfect by any stretch, but it`s a lot more impartial than NBC, Fox, ABC, CBA, and CNN. I think perhaps the news on PBS may have a slight advantage. Have you read any of the newspapers in the UK, though? The Guardian and Independant are the only publications I`ll read. Everything else is sensationalist crap like the Sun or Daily News.
Yah… one of the guys having a lighter on him totally makes this staged by MSNBC to point out how they prefer to bring the world tabloid news over real news… [/sarcasm]
Did it occur to you that that guy may be a smoker?
In the search bar, type "Hilton."
I got back 25 results. Five of those had less than 10,000 hits. The other twenty has much more than 10,000. Because they are about a celebrity.
Goes to show, this society is too celebrity obsessed.
My big rant was about what I saw on MSNBC.
Every news station puts celebritites above everything else. Because they`re just that important.
"Well, in other news, the leader of armed forces in Iraq has changed after...WAIT, WAIT, Paris Hilton is coming out of her house. Can we get back to the over-head view of her house? Ok, there she is. This just in, Paris Hilton has just left her house, she`s being brought to her car. . ." etc.I stared at the screen in astonishment. Paris Hilton is more important than the war in Iraq? Seriously now? This is EXACTLY what she wanted. More publicity. But that`s just how it is now. Celebrities are more important than the healthcare crisis, the economy, more important than our soldiers dying in Iraq.
ANYWAY I SAY PARIS HILTON IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL WOMAN IN THE WHOLE WORLD! SHE IS GORGEOUS!!!
Because his dick is concave and when he pisses it gets all over him.
"I don`t like this story, WATCH ME THROW A HISSY FIT LIVE ON THE AIR!"
Funny to watch though.
I`m totally on her side, she should be the producer.
I agree with Craig Ferguson on this one.http://www.cbs.com/latenight/lat
I went to college for THIS?
But why all the religion crap? "Found Jesus" bleh!
But seriously, that is not the most important news. Why do people care about what happens to celebrities anyway? Maybe those who do should worry about their own lives and not about (realistically) someone who they may never be.
That news lady is completely correct. I respect her because she knows that there is a fine line between news and complete bullpoo.
Some people really, really disgust/intrigue me.
As far as I`m concerned, Paris is just some Rich Girl that likes to drink and party too much.
Then go on and on and on untill finally they get the point....But of course, this is an easier, faster way to get the point across, but you don`t get to have the fun of rambling...
Also, f*ck Paris Hilton.
With everything about Paris Hilton on IAB, this is very appropriate.
I`m sorry but that is NOT unprofessional. What`s unprofessional is the people that are trying to make that newscaster their f*cking tool by reporter things that aren`t news at all.
Also I love the US, I have friends and relatives over there, and am going over there on holiday/vacation later in the year, this was just a simple question, the only other American stuff Ive brought up is `American humor`, which I dont like, but `British humour` gets brought up a lot too.
And for the record, I hate Paris Hilton, I was just sharing my opinion and asking a question.
Oh and to the few remaining americans who still have enough sense/decency/awareness (take your pick) to wonder why the country is so completely f-ed up, and why more people don`t have the guts and integrity that lady shows, well you don`t have to look any further than brain-dead mouth-breathers like BigBonny and MonkeyAbuser, for the answer.
Pairs is only known by anyone because of all the money her family has, not that she has personally done anything noteworthy. I`m sure you have people like that in the UK right BigBonny? Oh yeah they`re called the Royal family, and I`m sure newscasters couldn`t give a fu*ck about reporting on them, but they do it, because they`re mindless drones, like you.
If you type "F*ck", but instead of the "U" where it should be, put a "V" it replaces it with "Pretty little girl".
No one gives a flying I am a pretty pretty little girl about Anna Nicole Smith, Paris Hilton or Brittany spears.
Well done her, I say!
She did the right thing by throwing that sheet in the shredder.
I am sick and tired of people bashing the US to make themselves feel important.
If every other country can bias everyone inside the US off of a few people, then so can I damnit!
anyway, yes, no one cares. the thing is half the paris story is just that - no one cares. imagine all the coverage the fact that no one cares about paris hilton has got? well guess what? i dont care that you dont care about paris hilton, so stop saying it, because it`s older than the damn story itself.
I`ll take you up on that one.
... We`re through the looking glass people.
Do you not know the difference between a newscast and a news show? News shows present the news with discussion (a lot of times opinionated) between panelists or co-hosts. There are also news casts (ie: evening news, top of the hour news updates on cable news, etc.) that are impartial and completely scripted.
So basically we like to add a little lightheartedness to our news sometimes, sort of like the complete bastardization of news via British tabloids.
I`ll bet you a million drating dollars if I said something that ignorant about the UK, I`d get banned (or severely modded)
It seems like it is alright to bash America these days.
Let me put this in words that a child could understand: IF NEWSREADERS IN THE US WERE LIKE THIS A LOT, IT WOULDN`T BE ON I-AM-BORED.COM
