Iraq war and Anna Nicole Smith, priorities in US media


Anna Nicole SmithBy Joanne Laurier:

To put things into perspective, Thinkprogress.com tallied up the minutes spent on the media’s coverage of Anna Nicole Smith [US ex Playboy model and widow of a millionaire] the day after her death versus its reporting of the Iraq war: “NBC’s Nightly News devoted 14 seconds to Iraq compared to 3 minutes and 13 seconds to Anna Nicole.

CNN referenced Anna Nicole 522 percent more frequently than it did Iraq.

MSNBC was even worse—708 percent more references to Anna Nicole than Iraq.”
