In Defense of Larry King

I can't stand Larry King or his show, but his show has always been fluff. It's completely consistent with the many decades of his show to do an interview with Paris Hilton. There's nothing new about that at all.

One can criticize the degree to which such things bleed into the rest of the news coverage, and one can ask whether CNN should have a show like Larry King, which they have had for decades, but Larry King has always provided this kind of stuff. It's stupid to criticize him for interviewing Paris Hilton.
