There was a buzz in the newsroom Thursday. Anna Nicole Smith.
First there were reports she had fallen and then…died. Every eye found a monitor with FOX or MSNBC reporting what details they had at the moment. Was this just a slow news day or was this woman really that important?
Now I read someone, or some media company paid $500,000 for the last minutes of videotape of ANS. The video shows paramedics administering CPR on Smith, though you can’t really make out who was on the stretcher. A half-million dollars for that video? You gotta be kidding.
Here’s the video, tell me do you think it was worth the $$?
One of the more interesting parts of this story actually happened much earlier in the day when Rosie blasted Smith on “The View”, basically saying she’s sick of hearing about Anna Nicole and wished she would go away. (well, she didn’t actually say that, but that was the drift). Here’s the Rosie clip.
