A few moments ago i searched google.news just to discover almost 3,500 items about Paris Hilton going back to jail and she was seen hysterical, crying, and calling for her mom. Earlier today, when the cable in the new place was hooked up, every news channel had the same main item – Paris Hilton is going back to jail and she was seen hysterical, crying, and calling for her mom. Fox presented that under “breaking news”. A few times they had “it’s not fair” and “mom” displayed on screen for at least half a minute. Other channels had experts(!) to comment on her psychological situation, political and legal repercussions of the step and more.
And my questions are – Why is this important? Why is this interesting? Why is this taking up air time? What is there that i am missing?
