Exploring being female (for that's what we are) in a world of media myths, publishing incompetence, and marketing madness -- as well as the female submission and subscription to those messages.

More (Magazine) Or Less, The Irony

In December's issue of More magazine, Meredith Vieira said why she refused to interview Paris Hilton after Hilton was released from prison:

I did not feel good about doing the interview. I just said, 'I don’t think this is right, this is all about ratings.' There was this whole thing about whether we were going to give her a special, and all this minutiae and craziness.
Kudos to Vieira -- not just for refusing the interview with the troubled blonde icon of bad taste, but for saying so publicly.

However, we can't help but grimace & sigh at the irony of More's name-dropping -- using "Paris Hilton" for her keyword popularity; but that's not as bad as Hilton actually having any sort of popularity at all.
