Apparently, the producers at MSNBC wanted her to lead with that story over some "fluff piece" about the war in Iraq and controversy in the White House. She refused. The two morons beside her, especially host Joe Scarborough, tout the tired line that Paris is news. They simply come across as pandering assholes who should be lynched by anyone who believes the news needs a heavy dose of integrity.
Too many people will defend coverage of this clownette because she "sells". Well, it doesn't matter. A beautiful quote from South Park's Mr. Slave after he defeats Paris in a "whore-off" in the episode "Stupid Spoiled Whore Video Playset":
People, don't applaud me. I'm a dirty whore. [the crowd falls silent] Being spoiled and stupid and whorish is supposed to be a bad thing, remember? Parents, if you don't teach your children that people like Paris Hilton are supposed to be despised, where are they gonna learn it? You have to be the ones to make sure your daughters aren't looking up to the wrong people.
It's funny. I never found her attractive or even remotely interesting.
