A Day In Paris


How the media covered Hilton’s prison break

TVNewser was dutifully watching Paris TV all day yesterday:

    10:36AM MSNBC: Chris Jansing asks the Village Voice‘s Michael Musto: “You know everything there is to know about Paris Hilton. Does she have a medical condition?” “Yeah, she’s crazy,” he says …

    11:01AM FNC: Co-host E.D. Hill: “It is a great day in America if your name is Paris Hilton or you are an illegal alien. Today, we’ll tell you why …”

    11:56AM CNN: Immediately following an interview with General David Petraeus about Iraq, Heidi Collins says: “Well you know, we’ll always have Paris, but she won’t always have a cell …”

    12:08PM MSNBC: The cabler reveals an animation titled “Paris Hilton Free,” complete with a bark from her dog Tinkerbell. “Paris Hilton‘s long, grueling ordeal behind bars has come to an end,” Lisa Daniels mocks…

    12:22PM CNN International: “These are live pictures from our affiliate KTLA, helicopter pictures of the home of Paris Hilton … We’re watching that home. Lots of cars down there.” Co-anchor Stephen Frazier transitions: “Let’s turn now to Harvard …”

    1:38PM FNC: “This was not a good punishment for her,” a Live Desk panelist says. “The real punishment for Paris Hilton, I think, would be that the media gives her no coverage at all … That would be cruel and unusual punishment for her …”

    1:54PM CNN: Kyra Phillips asks a guest: “Are we just so pathetic and so lonely that we have to live life through people like Paris Hilton?”

    2:25PM MSNBC: After talking about immigration, Contessa Brewer asks political analyst Pat Buchanan: “I have got to ask you, is it fair that Paris Hilton is under house arrest?”
