Everyone seems to love the First Lady’s new bangs. I think they are cute, and I think discussions of her hair choices are approriate for fashion pages, but I must admit I was surprised that last night they were actually a news story on the NBC Nightly News. Yes, NBC anchor Brian Williams told us why she had opted for the bangs. Really, Brian with everything going on in the world you had time to talk about the First Lady’s hair? I guess if she parts her hair it would be worthy of a segment on CBS 60 Minutes. Walter Cronkite, David Brinkley, Harry Reasoner and other veteran journalists have to be flip flopping in their graves. Real news has been buried next to them. It probably is just part of the cultrue shift. The networks give the people what they want and obviously the people want the real deal on the bangs. Share your thoughts.
Michelle Obama’s bangs might be fashion news, but they are not really news
