I just was looking at CNN.com and noticed the Breaking News banner. Wow. Jenna Bush is engaged. Yes, certainly noteworthy. Let’s not talk about the plummeting stock market, the Peruvian earthquake, or any of the hurricanes on the horizon. Let’s talk about someone whose only “importance” (if you want to call it that) is the fact that she is the President’s daughter.
When I asked Drew why this would be considered breaking news, he said, “Well she must have been sober enough to say yes. That’s pretty amazing!”
But all joking aside, I wish the news would just be the news and leave the celebrity crap to People magazine and Us Weekly.
