Casey Anthony Trial the Most Searched News Story of 2011

Casey Anthony Trial” was the most searched news story of the year, according to a study released by Bing. Following behind Casey Anthony was Osama bin Laden Death, Hurricane Irene, Japan Earthquake/Tsunami and Amy Winehouse Death, respectively. Bing, a search engine used by those who have gone temporarily insane and thus forgot about Google, added up all of the website’s searches for the results.

Some other interesting finds: The Kardashian sisters all made the top five for most searched “reality star,” the “Today” show was the most searched morning program and Justin Bieber was the most searched person of the year.

The Biebs was also the most searched musician, meaning “Bieber for President in 2029″ is going to happen. And no, it won’t matter that he’s not a citizen, the man is unstoppable.

Why Was Amy Winehouse’s Obit on A1 of the LA Times and not Betty Ford’s?

The LA Times is taking a little heat from one of its readers over the decision to run the obit of Amy Winehouse on its cover, but not of former first lady Betty Ford. Reader Colleen Bennett writes: “OK, let me get this straight. The L.A. Times didn’t think the death of Betty Ford, former first lady and substance abuse treatment icon, deserved a front page obituary. But Amy Winehouse, a flash-in-the-pan singer who didn’t see the need to recover from said substance abuse, does?”

Good question. Kind of cute too. How many people do you see get all worked up about newspaper covers these days?

Anyway, LA Times reader representative Deirdre Edgar says that deadlines are to blame. “Winehouse’s death was reported before noon Saturday, leaving plenty of time to be considered for Sunday’s front page.”
