article imageVideo: Justin Bieber trumps Congresswoman for newsworthiness

By Anne Sewell     Jan 25, 2014 in Odd News
Miami - Apparently it's now official — Justin Bieber is the, repeat, THE most important news on MSNBC and he now tops absolutely anything else, including the NSA. A host interrupted a congresswoman to report on the Bieb's latest misdoings.
Yes, the Biebs is now officially top news.
Host Andrea Mitchell of MSNBC was interviewing former Congresswoman, Jane Harman (D-CA) about whether to end the NSA.
As Harman was saying that they should "... seriously consider not continuing... (presumably the collection of phone records by the NSA), Mitchell breaks in, interrupting Harman mid-sentence saying:
"Congresswoman, let me interrupt you for just a moment. We've got some breaking news out of Miami. Stand by if you will."
Continuing: "Right now, in Miami, Justin Bieber has been arrested on a number of charges ... the judge is reading the charges ... including resisting arrest and driving under the influence, he's appearing now before the judge... ". Etc.
Really? This is more important news than whether the NSA should be stopped from collecting everyone's phone records?
This delightful excerpt was aired on Andrea Mitchell Reports on MSNBC, January 22. 2014. Go figure.
