There are three channels full-time, "news coverage" of Anna Nicole Smith's death. Not to take anything away from her, but I have not seen coverage like this of, of anything in recent memory. Iraq, Afghanistan, forget it, a backseat at best at this point.
Yes, yes, we are all glitter and Hollywood, but the reality is these channels are seemingly using the death to sell their own coverage.
This is nothing new. News channel love blood and guts, and they have been using it to sell for years, but like everything else, it is getting more and more overdone.
Just remember, "If it bleeds, it leads."
