If you need any additional proof the American news media is dead and its rotting corpse is merely infesting television airwaves in 2014, look no further than this clip. Over on the bastion of journalistic integrity that is MSNBC, veteran reporter Andrea Mitchell was interviewing former California congresswoman Jane Harman, who joined the network from Switzerland.
Mitchell cut off the congresswoman in mid-sentence to go to the breaking news about Justin Bieber's arrest.
MSNBC CUT OFF A CONGRESSWOMAN FOR JUSTIN F—ING BIEBER!!!!
And in the game of cable news one-upmanship for the destruction of the American dream, CNN will be airing a special tonight at 10 PM ET entitled "Justin Bieber's Wild Ride."
Even if we did deport Bieber, I'm convinced all our major news networks and celebrity shows would just move to Toronto to report on the Biebs. On the bright side, at least we'd get more Rob Ford clips.
