Britney and CNN: another conventional dreary story

I am watching CNN Headline news to see if there is any news of import which I should be aware. Britney Spears has lost custody of her two children. Larry King exclusively covers that story except for the hunt for a suspected child abuser.

The dreary story says a lot about us, whether you are like me, somebody who does not know the facts about Britney and does not care, or somebody else. Britney is not the dreary story, but CNN and the other networks are.

The dreary story has always been inextricably tied to the conventional. It is the cheapest way to validate our values no matter how hypocritically we may live our lives. Progress beyond the conventional seems a dream.
