Pissy Kitty

Ok That's it. I've had enough.

I'm officially sick of seeing and hearing about Paris Hilton.

After watching a report on the morning news, seeing 3 articles on oneline news sites and then Cat, Lisa and the Sheriff and John Moore this morning yaking ad nausium today about her. Albeit the later were making fun of her and talking about the over saturation on P.H. ... they WERE still talking about her.

... I snapped.

So I wrote emails to CBC and CTV news to start (as they are the places I typically go for news. I've avoided Yahho news for a while now because not only do they offer far too much fluff, but then you get repetitious articles, on the same day about the same lame news.

Here's what I wrote. Now I know it's likel a bit too snotty. I tried people, I really tried to remove the snippiness and sarcasm, but I just couldn't do it. And at any rate it won't make a flipping difference, so why try and be polite?

To whom it may concern,

Could you NOT report anything more, EVER again, about Paris Hilton on the legitimate NEWS. Be it TV or Internet. I am so sick of seeing, and hearing about her. No one cares. It degrades your broadcasts, websites and integrity. It degrades us all.

She is as newsworthy as the last time I clipped my toenails. Do you remember when that was? Exactly!

She is not newsworthy. Certainly not worthy of world news, or top stories. So much of the media even makes a point of commenting how tired they are of reporting about her, so why then do you continue? Who's lives are incomplete without this information? Who is threatening to sue you if you do not report it? If you are fearful of losing the demographic that is intrinsically interested in her, I suggest they are not worth keeping; they certainly don't care what is happening in the Middle East, Central Africa or for that fact even what is happening here in our own country.

If you feel you really MUST report on the comings and goings of a spoiled, over-indulged, over-privileged, talentless, media-whore then keep it where it belongs, to the equally useless and vapid 'Entertainment' reports on the likes of e-Talk or Entertainment Tonight. (I don't watch those)

Keep her where she belongs, in last weeks news. At the very least away from legitimate news. Never to be seen or heard from again, lest to line the bottom of a bird cage.

Thanks in advance,

Meow! Kitty's got his claws out.

Honestly, Kitty, whenever I'm producing a newscast at A-Channel, I stay as far away from that "story" as possible, and am ashamed of an industry that has stooped to legitimizing such crap as real news.

Ma, you know I even considered that before I wrote it, but then I thought for better or worse I had to post my disgust.

NGB... I feel for you I really do. I'm sure 'that' story is only one of many that cause you to convulse!

Maria said...

Fucking Hilarious if you ask me!!

Yes, I know I am headed to the corner, Bye!

Misster Kitty said...

Hold your head up high as you stare into the corner. And SING! (the acoustics are GREAT in the corner!)

Maria said...

I hope this link works... if not, cut n' paste. I think you'll enjoy this topical little clip. Score one for this anchor woman's integrity with regards to that Paris creature.

Misster Kitty said...

I hafta wait til I get hom (no vid in the office) but if it's the one where she tried to burn her 'copy' I love it and her,(and by association you) already!

Misster Kitty said...

Mika Brzezinski.
LOVE her!
I wonder though, does she still work for MSNBC?

Thanks John, Kitty like!

T said...

Kitty, I feel exactly the same way! If you need a petition signed to get the story off the air, let me be the first to sign it! PLEASE. I would rather hear about the last time you clipped your toenails.....on second thought, maybe not. But I so love that you feel the same way!

ZoeyBella said...

That... was.... AWESOME!!!

Speaking as someone on the newsroom side of things, I would have loved to have gotten that in my InBox and been able to walk into any editor's office and say "SEE... I TOLD YOU!!"

Way to go. You really knocked one out of the park!

loved mika's reaction on the air, god knows what happened to her "oof the air". it took some guts to go against the flow like that. we definitely need more people like her, with a discerning mind, that will not bend to such silly influence...
