Moxie or Bravado?
|by Catherine Larson|
So apparently, Mika Brzezinski of MNSBC refused to report on Paris Hilton as their lead story. On air, she balks, hands the story to a co-anchor who crumples it. Later in the broadcast she tries to light the story on fire, but then ends up shredding it. You can watch the video here.
On the one hand, Mika is saying for the world, we refuse to follow the antics of celebrities as if this is the most important thing in our world. On the other hand, Mika seems to behave a bit like the spoiled Hilton herself by trying to burn the story on the air. So what do you think: is this journalistic moxie or purely bravado? How should Christians relate to the celebrity culture of our day?
