On June 26, 2007, Brzezinski refused to air a story about Paris Hilton‘s release from jail. Her producer had consistently put the story as the lead, ranking over the other big news story of the day: Republican Senator Richard Lugar of Indiana‘s breaking from President Bush on the Iraq war, which Brzezinski thought was more important. She attempted to burn the story’s script on air but was prevented from lighting it by a co-host. Later in the newscast, she tore and shredded copies of the story. The incident later became popularized on the internet and in the days that followed Brzezinski reportedly received large quantities of fan mail supporting her on air protest.
De la un_trecator, unde am vazut si filmuletul cu Mika incercand sa dea foc in direct stirii despre Paris Hilton. Foarte tare tipa, iar cei doi co-prezentatori (unul mi se pare ca seamana cu Chandler din Friends) fac misto de ea si sunt mirati de cat e de vehementa, dar ei nu-i pasa. Mi-a placut!
