I don"t think this newslady thinks Paris Hilton belongs on the news.

Good on the reporter for highlighting the trivial nature of celebrity news. Journalists do have an input. The two men were winding her up...

Sure Paris Hilton isn`t news, but shes not getting paid to share her opinion of Paris Hilton on live televison. So instead of bitching about Paris, she should have just done her job and read the story.

lol people let her bitch. I myself am tired of hearing about spoiled porn stars on news. Why would I or anyone else want to hear that drama? How about things that matter for once. Maybe she did want attention but to where people would see her getting her point across. She was probably fed up to the very last level. Walking to the shredder was not attention wanting bravery and not caring. She`s used to being on TV and news, that`s her job, and her already being all boiled up made it easier. When you`re pissed and annoyed you will do poo. Those dogs weren`t helping either. Yeah it was a bit much but I don`t blame her. Yes it`s her job and getting paid but one doesn`t have to do something that they feel belittles them. Ok enough ranting. Now this is too much. I feel talky.

My feedback doesn`t matter, and you know that.

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?

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 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.

- This is obviously scripted (conveniently placed lighter and paper shredder). In fact this is one step worse than Paris Hilton news... it`s a newschannel making news out of its coverage of Paris Hilton news ... meta-Paris-news anyone?
- The rich, famous and/or influental weasel out of jail and aren`t subject to the same laws as the rest of us ... this is definitely news, well old news but it still needs to be seen.

"Wooow. I wonder if she got fired. They`re supposed to be non-biased."

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.

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.

All celebrity news and shows of that sort are nothing but a distraction, a distraction from the real news. Thousands of innocents are dying in Iraq, while hundreds die each day in Darfur and many other regions of Africa. Millions around the world are starving, and living in extreme poverty. But of course news like "PARIS HILTON OUT OF JAIL" is far more important than millions dying from something that can be stopped.

Chances are that nobody will read this, but hell at least I feel better now.

F*ck Paris Hilton (or stay away if you`re afraid of crabs). The more people talk about her, the more attention she`s getting. So she was sent to jail and was finally let out after she droved intoxicated one day. Lots of people do. The fact that this this link has gotten so many comments proves that she`s succeeded in getting her name and face out to the world. I`m ashamed that I know who she is, but I have to agree with almost everyone else here. That lady is awesome!

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."

Ever notice that the whole Paris thing, as well as the thing called Paris (Hilton, that is), is the epitome of the deadly sin Pride?

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!!

Okay Maelstrom, I propose a challenge for America.

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).

Cashcleaner: Yep - I`ve read a few newspapers from time to time in the UK (I live there). Everyone in our country knows the sun and the the daily mail (not news) are sensationalist crap. Their target markets are idiots and people who like the lighter side of the news (The latter applies to The Sun not The Mail - mail was pro nazi before the start of WWII..). The independent (is supposidly neutral) and the Guardian (liberal slant) are a more intense read and a dictionary is often good company with your paper. This is why we have choice - if you don`t like it, don`t read it. Similar to what the newsreader thought.

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.

I watched on the news awhile ago, they were covering the story of Paris Hilton being at her house, after being released from prison because of some **problem** (She was a rich celebrity, who was too good for jail.) she had. They had a news helicopter circling her house. Paris wasn`t doing anything, so, they went to another news story. The conversation went something like this:

"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.

lol... you can`t escape paris hilton! I was just watching the news not five minutes ago and I got treated to hearing more about her! So I suffered through the segment because I figured they`d go to the next story in a few minutes, but I heard one of the FUNNIEST things ever.
Apparently, the most embarassing thing poor little baby paris had to suffer in jail was being stripped search. She got all weepy about it, saying that having to be naked in front of someone she didn`t even know was horrifying.
Lol... it`s not like half the people in this country don`t know what she looks like naked- remember her sex tape that sold way more copies than her cd? lol I found it amusing.

Props to the newscaster for refusing to read the story. Paris Hilton is probably one of the most spoiled brats in the history of this country. I mean, she`s famous for absolutely no reason at all. Who really cares if she gets carted off to jail, honestly? It`s like the American media has taken leave of its senses. There were newspeople who were covering the coverage of Paris Hilton`s release, for crying out loud! And while America is being forced to hear about how Paris goes about her messed-up life, the UK gets a new Prime Minister, genocide is still going on in Darfur, people are still dying in Iraq, and in the US, the Senate declined to extend debate for a bill that would allow for the 12 million illegal immigrants to eventually gain US citizenship. So now the question is asked: What is news in our world now?

I agree with Craig Ferguson on this one.

My God, it`s about time! I`m sure a lot of other professional journalists feel the same way she does. I can`t even believe that tabloid fodder seems to be making national news, let alone local stations getting in on the circus. It should offend all of us that the news is dumbed-down for stories like this-who are they trying to appeal to? So, this story being the lead story for the day is an even bigger insult to American intelligence! It seems as if Mika had a prior discussion about this being the lead story, so no wonder she was so perturbed.
Save Paris for the end-of-show gossip piece or just leave her drama for The National Enquirer!

YES! That news lady is completely freakin` right. There are more important things to worry about than some self-indulgent, random, talentless bitch who got herself chucked in jail. Now I don`t know the details because I gave up on media a long time ago, so all I know is her name. Lol.

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.

I mean....she is the most IMPORTANT thing in america! Know what? Let`s ditch these other stories and just talk about paris! don`t we all just LOVE paris?

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...

Whoa, Whoa! I`m not Anti American! Its just TV... Ive not seen much American news to know whether newscasters are always so casual in the US, but if its a news discussion show, then yeah, its fine, you must admit, if it was a normal newsreader, it would`ve been a bit weird!

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.

personally I`d prefer not to be a mindless drone like BigBonny or any one else that said she should just read it. If you don`t like something about your job, change it, or quit. She obviously was attempting the former. She was feeling a little on edge it seemed but she still got her point across rather than giving hilton more air time. Pairs is retarded and no one should care if she goes to jail or stays there.

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.

Sadly, the question is "what is news?" If people really didn`t want to hear about Paris Hilton (I personally don`t), then the press wouldn`t talk about her because there`d be no profit in it. But unfortunately we still live in a country (world?) where millions of drivel-hungry idiots are buying celebrity gossip off the racks faster than they can print it. Don`t blame the news - blame the morons!

It’s about f--king time that someone did something like this. Those jackasses were mocking her but she’s got it 100% right. This Hilton thing belongs in an entertainment mag or tabloid. It doesn’t deserve to be the lead story anywhere but on the “E!” network. We’ve got a war going on, political douchebaggery at all levels of government, scientists telling us that we’re all screwed in a couple of decades, religious nuts in America trying to legislate how we should all live and a hole cluster f—k of other problems and going-ons. She appears to be frustrated because she actually believes in good journalism and cant stand that all they do is sit there and talk fluff. I mean, do you realize that MSNBC and Fox News gave almost 12 times more coverage to the death of Anna Nicole Smith than they did to the ongoing developments in the Walter Reed military hospital story?

That woman is, quite frankly, an amazement and a credit to Americans everywhere. She represents a hold-over from the days where people didn`t complacently listen to the latest prolefeed instead of paying mind to news about the Senate (their "second story") and the future of this country. Back when it was not only acceptable, but encouraged that you don`t let your government knife you in the back, let alone your favored news program.

Anyway, I think this woman did a really good thing. She stood up for herself and her beliefs (even though she could have gotten fired) and refused to read a story. I know most newsreaders make a joke of the whole Paris Hilton thing, but they usually still read it out. And what BigBonny says is true, in the UK newsreaders don`t add any opinion to the story and are usually pretty impartial... but that`s no fun!

" Are newsreaders in the US like this a lot? In the UK they`re impartial and just read without opinion."

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.
