In battle of the titans, Paris ousts Michael Moore: CNN officiates

Now let's get one thing perfectly straight: I'm not the kind of person who gets excited about celebrity news. It's just not part of my constitution. And as much as I hate to add to the already distressing amount of blog chatter about Paris Hilton and her infinitesimally short prison stint, I did find this one small detail in the BBC story rather interesting:

The 26-year-old, sentenced to 45 days on 3 June, was released early due to crowded jail conditions and time off for good behaviour.

She is scheduled to appear on Larry King's CNN talk show on Wednesday.

The network has said she will not be paid for her appearance, which has replaced a planned interview with filmmaker Michael Moore.

Good job, CNN. Michael Moore probably didn't have anything important or titillating to say, anyways.
