I'd like to take a moment to recognize someone who earned my respect today. MSNBC journalist Mika Brzezinski refused to do the "Paris Hilton is out of jail" bit as the lead story on her newscast, saying, "I just don't believe in covering a story like that, especially not as the lead story in a news cast when you have a day like today." And we're nto talkin' half-steppin', here. She refused, then tried to burn it, and when the lighter was taken away, she tore it up and crumpled it. When producers reinserted the story in her stack of news items, she took the pages and shredded them. Fuck YES.

Later on, she did a little interview of her own, after the video went around the 'Net like wildfire...

Good on ya, Ms. Brzezinski. About damn time someone stood up.
