Lord Shafer lowers himself to engage Al Gore and misses the point entirely. The problem is not that there is celebrity news or sports news, the problem is when trivial stories dominate the entire news narrative. That almost never happens with sports, which gets little coverage on cable news or Matt "Rules Their World" Drudge. The problem isn't that there's a sports section in your newspaper, the problem is when unimportant stuff bleeds into the regular coverage.
