Mika Takes a Stand

tags: , , ,

MSNBC’s news anchor, Mika Brzezinski, refuses to report on the Paris Hilton story on the Morning Joe show, even though her bosses made it the lead story — against her wishes. Perhaps more people in the media & news outlets should follow Mika’s example and stop reporting non-news stories about worthless people like Paris, who is an obscenely rich and self-centered brat.

    YES!

    If I for some inexplicable reason wanted to watch TV, I think I would actually watch this show.

    Which is really high praise, coming from someone who watches maybe 5 minutes of TV (mostly hurricane forecasts) in a year.

    …I watched that, then wrote MSNBC a “Mika is right, Joe is an idiot, please get back to news” letter. I was feeling all activist-y and thought she should have some public support. And yeah, Joe *is* a condescending idiot jerk.
