When the greasy, misogynist pundits prefer circuses, beer over real information, Rome gets dumber...
As pointed out by Michigan Professor Juan Cole's blog, MSNBC news anchor Mika Brzezinski is shown fighting with fellow "journalist" Joe Scarborough on the lead story.
The choice is between Republicans turning against Bush on Iraq and Paris Hilton's release from jail.
Let's see... a global political issue that affects the future of U.S. standing in the world and Middle Eastern disruption...or a story about some spoiled, drunken, coked-out tart who can't keep her pants on let alone stay out of jail for being an asshole.
It's too bad stupidity rests with the "deciders," like Joe Scarborough, who don't know a story of importance from their asshole.
Keep on being real, Mika.
