Let me get this straight... Don Imus refers to some young black women as "nappy-headed hos" and gets fired amidst the massive media attention, Kelly Tilghman gets a 2-week suspension for saying Tiger Woods's's opponents would have to "lynch him in a back alley" to beat him, yet John Gibson gets nothing?
Are things seriously so fudged up in this country that something only <i>vaguely</i> tied to racism (lynching) causes more outrage than cruel homophobic rumormongering towards a dead man and his family?
I'm not typically a celebrity woebegoner, but this atop the Westboro Baptist Church announcing that they're going to picket Heath's funeral has put me just about over the top on the "caring about the press treatment of celebrities" department. Seriously, LEAVE HEATH LEDGER ALONE! (SOB)
