No More Paris Hilton


Broadcast journalism's latest champion is MSNBC anchor, Mika Brzezinski.

Brzezinski, daughter of Zbigniew, rebelled when handed a news bulletin about the release of Paris Hilton. At first she simply refused to read the copy, saying, "No, I hate this story and I don't think it should be our lead." From the Times Online:

"After getting away with her refusal the first time, the story came up again as Ms Brzezinski was asked to read it at the top of the next rolling bulletin - after which she took a fellow anchor's cigarette lighter and tried to burn the script.

"The third time around, she was ready. She took the script straight to the studio shredder and fed it into the machine.

"The anchor's stand appears to have made her something of a heroine, at least among those Americans who have had enough of the Paris Hilton jail saga. "
You can watch the whole thing here on YouTube. It's priceless:
