"I just don't believe in covering that story…"

MSNBC Journalist Mika Brzezinski, my personal hero for the day, does exactly what needs to be done about Paris Hilton: ignores her story in favour of real news. Too bad her co-hosts were misogynistic jerks who accused her of only showing a spine because she wanted to show her dad that she wasn’t “mousy”. Oi.

I’m happy she did it, regardless.

Yeah, I wasn’t pleased with the other people in this video. They were complete assholes. They talked over hear and they also disregarded her wishes about showing the Paris Hilton footage.

Though actually, did you get the impression that the male co-anchors were being derisive about the footage as well? It seemed as if they were pretty much making fun of everyone there.
