Moxie or Bravado?

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?

Do what I do...change the channel every time some newscaster decides to discuss celebrity "news." Pick up a field and stream magazine to get through the grocery line, or stick my fingers in my ears and hum to myself while someone tries to tell me about the latest celebrity ridiculous exploit.

I think she showed that it was a publicity stunt by trying to burn it on camera. She should have crumpled it and had another story (actually worth telling) ready.

I don't watch t.v. and I don't pay any attention to celebrity news in other media unless the celebrity is doing something worthwhile and unique.
