Britney Spears Loses Custody of Children: Today's Cartoon

My guess is that if America's mainstream media were to focus as much attention on the well-being of the "kids" serving in Iraq and Afghanistan as they do the health and safety of Britney Spears' children, the Bush administration would have lost "custody" a long time ago.

You know, it never seems to fail that at a time when the U.S. needs to pay attention to serious matters, their press allow themselves (yet again) to become distracted by the tabloid wing of their "news" department and the latest gossip surrounding the former marginally-talented pop singer and bad actress, Britney Spears. I mean, with all of this coverage being devoted to her during TWO controversial wars, I am beginning to wonder if whether this troubled celebrity needs help... or a commendation from the White House.

If anything, the reporting on Britney Spear's custody battle at least proves that the American mainstream media is still "capable" of investigative journalism... even if it apparently has no idea what it should be investigating.
