The stupidity continues

The top story/banner headline on CNN.com right now is:

Not a small headline underneath an "Entertainment" subheading way down on the page, but the absolute top story.

Why should I care, CNN? And why should those affected really care, either? So a bunch of spoiled kids don't get to go to a stupid concert from someone I've never heard of. Worse things have happened.

They could have an amoeba-eating brain in their water supply.

I never heard of her either until this ticket fiasco thing.

She's quite popular, and I'll admit I think she is a good rolemodel for young girls. And the top story changes throughout the day, so hopefully it wasn't up there all day :)

Yeah, I guess my not having heard of her is more my fault than hers. And I'm sure she's very nice. But that doesn't mean she deserves top story status on a national news webpage, even for just a few minutes. :)

I would pay money to never see another headline about Paris Hilton, Lindsey Lohan, or Britney Spears.

And I have no idea who that is either.

It is amazing the story got top billing. I think the reason was though that $25-$65 tickets were suddenly $2500...which happens to be nuts. I've had similar things happen to me every time I try to see a U2 concert. I'll get on to buy the tickets and in the first second they are all gone! Mainly because someone has bought them all up so they can charge double online...although now because of this fiasco maybe they'll charge even more :)

sarah said...

well she's definitely not a paris, lindsey, or britney, so no worries! :)

sometimes I feel the media has forgotten that many wars are going on

Well, as one with a 12 year-old sister, I've at least heard the name. But THANK GOODNESS she's not so crazed that she'd be upset about a concert (knock on wood).
