Britney Spears paparazzi hit alltime low with ambulance chasing antics
This Week’s Top Scrooge – Jan. 4, 2007
First, there was the Britney Death Poll contest introduced by a radio jock. Then, months of inane Britney videos and photos of her in cars, and getting in and out of cars. Now, photographers competing for the best ambulance shots featured photags literally chasing her ambulance Thursday night, sticking cameras in the emergency vehicle window.
As of Friday morning, Spears was still at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on a “5150 hold,” meaning there’s evidence she’s a danger to herself or others, TMZ said. This news after the Los Angeles Police Department was called to Spears’ home to investigate a custody dispute around 8 p.m. PST.
Iowa Caucus news ended last night with the Breaking Britney News and video of the shark attack-like scene of photographers. Close to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center a photographer can be seen trying to hang on to the back of the ambulance, camera in one hand, shooting inside through the window as the vehicle approaches.
One on-scene reporter from a major cable news channel said she felt sick watching the meltdown of Britney unfolding before the parasitic media. Understandably so.
This Week’s Top Scrooge goes to news agencies driven by Britney exploitation. It got ugly and I hope it doesn’t get worse.
