Arianna on what's news:
Here are the number of news segments that mention these stories (from a search of the main news networks' transcripts from May 1 to June 20):

-- ABC News: Downing Street memo: 0 segments; Natalee Holloway: 42 segments; Michael Jackson: 121 segments.

-- CBS News: Downing Street memo: 0 segments; Natalee Holloway: 70 segments; Michael Jackson: 235 segments.

-- NBC News: Downing Street memo: 6 segments; Natalee Holloway: 62 segments; Michael Jackson: 109 segments.

-- CNN: Downing Street memo: 30 segments; Natalee Holloway: 294 segments; Michael Jackson: 633 segments.

-- Fox News: Downing Street memo: 10 segments; Natalee Holloway: 148 segments; Michael Jackson: 286 segments.

-- MSNBC: Downing Street memo: 10 segments; Natalee Holloway: 30 segments; Michael Jackson: 106 segments.

(Natalee Holloway is the woman missing in Aruba, if you didn't recognize the name. And good on ya if you didn't. Whoops, that was commenting wasn't it?)


Followed a couple of links from the Salon story to find an interesting essay on blogs as the Court of Appeals for what is and isn't newsworthy.

A joke I found during my daily searching. Not related to post, but thought you guys might like this.

Q: How many Bush administration officials does it take to change a light bulb?

A: None. There is nothing wrong with the light bulb; its conditions are improving every day. Any reports of its lack of incandescence are a delusional spin from the liberal media. That light bulb has served honorably, and anything you say undermines the lighting effect. Why do you hate freedom?
