That’s right, click over to News.com.au and Paris Hilton is the lead story. Good Grief, they are in the aftermath of an historic election.
They’ve got a guy who held a another guy as a slave turn himself in. If you want gaudy, strange news, isn’t that good enough? They have a nuclear reactor that spewed poison gas for hundred of miles from Sydney to Melbourne, and Paris Hilton is the top story. (By the way, they didn’t tell the public about the poison gas for fear of causing alarm. I don’t guess it would have been a big deal anyway. After all, the citizen of Melbourne who went to the internet for news would have had to read about Paris Hilton before he drifted down the page to the headline, Poison Gas Drifts Toward City.)
Has all news got to be on the level of short attention spanned five year old?
