Is anyone else bothered by the fact that the mainstream media wouldn't touch the John Edwards story for like three weeks after the National Enquirer started it's coverage - because they didn't think it was respectable journalism, and yet they have no problems running stories on Bigfoot, Ellen's upcoming wedding, the Montauk Monster, the winners of American Idol and whether or not the Olson twins will get immunity for testifying about Heath Ledger's death?
I mean, shit, I write about Bigfoot and Lohan and all that shit - but I'm a drunken pornographer.
It's my job to be tasteless and weird.
But, if I was getting paid to be an actual journalist, I'd want to cover actual news - and one of the Vice Presidential front runners banging a girl who is/was so fucked up that Jay McInerney was "appalled" by her behavior and Brett Ellis said she'd "blow you if you have an Amex card" is much closer to news than a rotting raccoon on a Long Island beach.
But, I'm not paid to be an actual journalist so instead I'm going to kick back in my new sun glasses
I got myself a pair of Oakley sunglasses
but I think Rome Girl would have been happier if I'd purchased Aviator sunglasses
, Maui Jim sunglasses
or Versace sunglasses
