Breaking News: Michael Jackson's Concert Promoter Found Not Liable in Wrongful Death Case

I just received this “ALERT” from The New York Times, which is usually a good judge of the importance of news.

This  item is not important.  

It is a cultural triviality. 

There is something wrong with a culture which finds it anything more than that.

"Alert" status is inappropriate, even grotesque.

Sorry NYT: You're losing it.
