Well it is a big day in the world of news. And instead of telling us what is going on in Iraq or Iran or any of these other places we ought to be more concerned about, the top story in the whole wide world is that Anna Nicole Smith has died.
What a sad, sad story. Actually, this woman's life has been a sad story from start to finish and I don't even want to talk about it, it's too depressing. And actually the news conference is meant to get underway soon.
You can tell how cynical I am about the media's coverage of this poor woman. I know that Lainey over at Lainey Gossip is another person turned off by this whole Anna Nicole story, with the drugs and the paternity suit and her son dying and all that. Her story is just too sad and pathetic. The coverage of this woman has been total overkill, sort of like vultures circling.
I guess we know what the top story will be on ET and Access Hollywood, and on Nancy Grace's show and Greta's show, and Larry King's show, and all these other shows tonight. I'm watching MSNBC and of course that notorious tabloid artist Rita Cosby is right on the story. I noticed on Headline News that the other big tabloid artist Jim Moret was right on the story, too. All my favorite people are on this story, just in time for sweeps.
At least that Astro-Nut story was kind of funny. This isn't.
