Anna Nicole Smith's Baby Daddy Revealed: Today's Cartoon

Wouldn't it be nice if the American media could apply even just half the amount of energy that they wasted covering the Anna Nicole Smith saga, towards investigating something like 9/11 or the use of private security forces in Iraq? Oh sure, some of you may think that there is nothing more to know about these stories; but seriously, when has that ever prevented the cable news companies from going overboard with its round-the-clock “continuous coverage”?

The way I see it, if the press is willing to devote so much of its time and resources towards covering stories like this, then at the very least they could spare just a few moments of airtime to refute all of those "ridiculous" 9/11 conspiracy theories, which continue to gain popularity among the general public; mainly because they continue to go unopposed by both the government and the mainstream media.

While the world is grateful that a single baby has been united with her biological father, the press played absolutely no role in this; and sadly all the hard work that went into bombarding us with this tabloid each day will almost certainly be forgotten. Now, compare that to the kind of "investigative journalism" that not only means something, but can actually shape the outcome of the story; and whose efforts would ultimately be remembered for generations to come.
