So now it is all about Paula Abdul

The latest distraction is this business with Paula Abdul and an American Idol contestant. He claims that she coached him and they had an affair, and blah blah blah…

I understand why American Idol is so popular. I think I get it. It’s like American Bandstand or something. But why is this news, and the news about ABC’s “investigation,” getting so much press? It’s like meta-press: the press is excited that ABC did something journalistic. It ranks right up there with Hersh’s story about Abu Ghraib!
