For a news junkie like me, the “We found JonBenet’s killer” story is a huge annoyance. It captures headlines all over the place, obscuring real news. So some creepy middle-aged white guy killed some creepy childhood beauty princess. So what? The JonBenet story is interesting only because it is so very creepy. But this shouldn’t have ever been anything more than local news in central Colorado.
Hey, Mainstream Media: Tell me about the war. Tell me about the economy. Tell me about changes in technology and science. Tell me about real crime. Tell me about law and politics. Tell me about natural disasters. But don’t bother me with Britney belching. At least, not on the front page of all your websites.
