Media Critic Quote of the Day

"The networks were using what I called D-roll -- endlessly looping footage of Anna Nicole spilling out of her dress or striking provocative poses. I'm not saying her death isn't a story, but the tabloid excess here has been amazing. This is a stripper who got breast implants, posed for Playboy, married an old rich guy, got into a legal fight for his money after he died, and had a truly awful E! reality show -- and too many journalists are treating her as some kind of cultural icon. Embarrassing."
-Howard Kurtz, on the ridiculous Anna Nicole overkill. "The Daily Show" ran a great, great montage last night, showing a clip of Lou Dobbs vowing to not discuss Anna Nicole in a teaser for his show, cut directly to Wolf Blitzer standing in front of four large screens with different pictures of Anna herself.

I couldnt agree more. I mean it was fine the day we found out about the death and it is sad yet humorous that like a million men are syaing they could be the father of her baby but let it rest until we have concrete answers. Someone in Hollywood needs to start a feud so we can move on to better things...
