Yesterday I wrote about a "Breaking News" alert I got from my local TV station about Paris Hilton's release from jail.

I just got another one:

Paris Ordered Back To Jail

A judge orders Paris Hilton back to
jail and she is taken from court screaming.


Now that's brevity in headline reporting.

Look, I don't have strong opinions about Paris Hilton. I do have strong opinions about what our media consider important news. Is this it? It's titillating, sure, but is it a big deal?
