Media and Mayhem: The Anna Nicole Three-Ring Circus

This is crazy - the whole case, the intrigue, the amount of baby's daddies coming out of the wood work, the media spectacle, and the incessant coverage of this case for the better part of two weeks.

As a citizen, it is difficult to fathom a judge even taking an active part in this besides from being the moderator. Well, the judge, Mr. Seidlin became very much a part of this crazy, outlandish event with Howard K. Stern, Larry Birkhead and Anna Nicole's mom.

Sheesh. I have no idea if this judge is performing, or just going well and beyond what his responsibilities are supposed to be, but this train wreck has morphed into a event within itself.

Anyhow, view this video from Keith Olbermann's show on MSNBC, "Countdown".

He was playing it up for the cameras. He had sent in an audition tape to become a tv judge. And he has already gotten calls from Hollywood about doing it after this whole debacle.

Yeah, I figured --- it's pathetic.

I work in broadcast journalism, and while it would hamper some of our material (plus violate the 1st Amendment), this is one of the times where I think cameras ought to be banned from the courtroom.

STN - I wholeheartedly agree.

Although I am all for freedom of the press and information, this is all completely a private manner, not for the public domain.

The ridiculousness of this entire matter, from the endless chatter on CNN to the judge being totally unprofessional illustrates your point.

Thanks for the post!
