Car chase in California!

Please please please!!!  Why is this "news"?  MSNBC is following some obscure car chase.  Why do I care?  

I think 24-hour news has destroyed the news industry.  Our gatekeepers - those tasked with presenting us the news each day - have fallen to lows I would never have dreamed.  There's nothing newsworthy about this car chase.  There's nothing honorable about hundreds of reporters camping out on the lawn in front of the home of the captain currently being held hostage by pirates off Somalia (doesn't that truly bring to mind a pictures of vultures hovering???) There's nothing newsworthy about tagging some (probably not stable) woman as "Octomom" (I personally have no desire to see any limits put on child-bearing options, do you??)
