Interesting that Gawker and Perez will just say what everyone is
thinking, but CNN, and even TMZ, will not report on the obvious
possibilities. We live in real time, and the speculation on Twitter
and the blogs is that she was anorexic and addicted to drugs. Is that
true? I have no idea…. but I do think that main stream news needs to
get over the “we can’t speculate” rule. Everyone is speculating in
public and in real time. CNN is well within their right to report on
what blogs and twitter folks are saying.

    I disagree, I go to sites like Perez Hilton for gossip and
    speculation, cnn for (hopefully) researched and factual
    news stories, it’s nice to have a choice.

    As a sidenote I like the new mahalo design but what’s the
    deal with mahalos failure to link to sites these days?
    Even on the Perez Hilton’s page and the mahalo page for
    his website there is no link to his actual site, annoying!

    That’s why there is news and there are gossip bloggers. Just because some schmuck with an Internet connection has a voice doesn’t mean that they’re saying anything worth hearing, let alone accurate.
