I've had a quick trawl and can't find a thread on this story elsewhere, so:

Newscaster's on-air Paris protest

US newsreader Mika Brzezinski has attempted to burn her script live on television in protest at being made to lead her bulletin on Paris Hilton.
The co-presenter of MSNBC's Morning Joe programme refused to read out the story about the celebrity socialite's release from jail ahead of items on Iraq.

"I hate it and I don't think it should be our lead," she said, before tearing up and trying to set fire to script.

Damned good effort Ms Brzezinski!

Seemed great until she went with an opening story on the new Middle East envoy! Suddenly Paris Hilton seemed intelligent.

Mika Brzezinski

Once you see it it's a lot less outrageous than it reads. They're obviously joking and having fun. The individual on the right is Joe Scarborough a former congressman.

I've just watched a clip on the BBC link in my opening post, and whilst the two men were adopting a jocular air I didn't get the impression that Mika B was.

But then the BBC clip is only three minutes long, so it could be misleading.
