Take that, you sicko.

This has to hurt, no matter who you are.

Think Progress » CNN Dumps Michael Moore For Paris Hilton
Yesterday, CNN proudly announced that it has scored the first post-jail interview with Paris Hilton. To make room for Paris on Wednesday, CNN canceled its interview with Michael Moore about his new health care documentary SiCKO:
Hotel heiress and reality TV star Paris Hilton will give her first post-jail interview on CNN’s “Larry King Live” on Wednesday, the show’s spokeswoman said on Saturday.


“She will be on for the hour,” Bridget Leininger told Reuters. “We had (filmmaker) Michael Moore originally scheduled for that time.”

CNN, the “most trusted name in Paris news,” continues to sink to new lows in its “assault on reason.” Hilton is the latest “serial obsession,” though the network recently hired a reporter devoted to “covering things like Britney, as well as the Michael Jackson memorabilia.” Now CNN has ditched coverage of America’s broken health care system in favor of an hour-long interview of an incarcerated socialite.

ThinkProgress spoke with Moore’s team, who confirmed that CNN has not yet rescheduled the interview. SiCKO, which opens nationwide this Friday, sheds light on the health care crisis that the media covers poorly, when it covers it at all.

UPDATE: ThinkProgress has confirmed that Moore’s interview with Larry King has been rescheduled for Friday.

Yeah, why am I not surprised with the way priorities are set up? Maybe Paris is going to fund some of the health programs we are lacking, that's it.

That is a slap to the face of every American who isn't a total effing moron.

"Sexy" news sells, simple as that.

(disclaimer: I DON'T think Paris Hilton is sexy, she is a dirty skank airhead.
I'm more like

Haia Wehbwe:Haifa Wehbe - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

or Dana Delaney http://www.danadelany.com/photos/gen...any-loreal.jpg )

but Michael Moore ain't NOBODY's idea of sexy.....

Sexy? Yikes. In Germany she would be called bmw, not for the car, but for 'Brett mit Warzen' = board / plank with warts.

Choosing between Paris and Michael Moore is like choosing between Acetyl Choline and Cyanide.

Well, for those who watch Larry King I suppose it won't make any difference anyway. He can't decide if he is a Journalist, a Talk Show Host or a Red Carpet Huckster.

But you gotta push the Garlique any way you can. It keeps the Vampires away.
