Great moments in irony

CNN Headline News:

“There’s more sex and violence on primetime TV that ever before. Why has TV become so tawdry? Our investigation tomorrow.”

“Shocking new details from Anna Nicole Smith’s diary coming up next.”

Somehow, I think the answers to the first question and the why to the coverage of Smith are similar.

    I can’t help but think of that old In Living Color sketch where two newscaster report–very seriously–on some issue or another while Jim Carrey is going crazy in the background. Somehow, I think, that’s gotten to be the norm.
