Anna Nicole Smith and the media


I'm sorry, it is tragic that she lost her life's battle. But I don't understand the 24 hour addiction the media has with this story. I wish the media covered more stories about a single death in the war in Iraq. The family, the impact the individual made on their family and with their friends is more deserving of the media's attention. I know those stories may not have the "glitz and sexiness" of the Anna Nicole story. Come on folks! Don't watch all the coverage. It isn't that there aren't news stories to cover. The Congress has a Bill, HR 770, on ensuring the President's powers are checked with respect to starting a war with Iran. Shouldn't there be more coverage of this. How about the story of the Palestinians coming to an agreement and what it means with respect to Middle East Peace efforts and the Roadmap proposed by the Bush Administration. Or maybe more coverage on the apparent change in tone and substance of the North Korea talks on the issue of Nuclear Weapons. Enough is enough.

Very appropriate post, Charles! I would hope that other bloggers are making similar posts as yours and mine on this topic. So far, though, I haven't seen many.
