Media Swill


It occured to me that Britney Spears “meltdown” happened just after Anna-Nicole Smith’s demise. With so much media coverage over that, what’s a girl gonna do to keep her name in the spotlight – go nuts of course, and then too much of the media just follows along like the gossip-monger it has become.

We cannot be a democracy without a functioning media. William Rivers Pitt gives a neat summary of why this has come to be so. : http://www.truthout.org/docs_2006/022407Z.shtml
