Priority of news stories..................

Does anyone else find it a little irritating when Michael Jackson being found not guilty (and George Best being held over 'sex assult'), takes 'preference' in the news over issues such as the fact that a 7.9 magnitude earthquake has hit Chile with "at least" 8 people dead (probably a lot more) and other stories. It really irritates me when the "news" is all about celebrities brushes with the law (yes so they're celebrities - but they're by no means the only people commiting crimes!) rather than news proper - right morning rant over - off to wash sheets, cut a chicken into pieces, and other 'rl' stuff

Now that you mention it, yes, it does annoy me.

yes esp when you get a 'NEWS'paper to read on the way to work and have to wade through it to find any real news at all and quite often dont manage to find any. Maybe I should actually start BUYING one tho instead of reading the free rag that might help

Still at least I can rely on MN to keep me uptodate on the important stuff.
