MSNBC anchor Mika Brzezinski refuses to read Paris Hilton news story.

With all the news networks short-stroking everything Paris related over the last couple of days — CNN actually covered Paris showing up at CNN to be on Larry King — it’s very refreshing to see that at least one journalist out there tried very hard not to lead with a story on Paris’ release from prison:

I still don’t understand why so many people give a flying fuck about Paris Hilton or what stupid thing she’s done lately. I certainly don’t understand why so many news agencies treat it as the most important story of the day when there’s so many other much more newsworthy things to be covering out there. She’s rich and she’s spoiled and the media can’t seem to let a day go by without lavishing attention on her as though her every move were of cosmic significance. I don’t begrudge her her money, I’d like to be rich myself, but I do begrudge her attention whoring as though anything she does has any real importance to anyone outside of herself.
