In a defiant move, to sell fewer copies, this month People Magazine and Us Weekly have enforced a moratorium on Paris Hilton stories. Not only did they ban Paris stories but they claim to have methodically gone over the editions scouring for ad related Paris quotes, or photographs of the popular icon. They even went so far as to make sure there weren't even references to Paris France.
Associated Press did the same thing a few months ago for the period of one week. It failed miserably, creating even more Paris Hilton stories about there being no Paris Hilton stories, the inevitable monsoon exploded, reserve Paris Hilton stories came spilling out all at once creating a landslide.
A noted newsman for one of the big three networks who wished to remain anonymous said, " to ban the news, is to create the news, worthy, news, roses are red, violets are blue, some poems rhyme, but this one doesn't and that's the way it is," end of quote.
So in being banned from the news Paris Hilton becomes even more news worthy. People categorize her as a simple, over inflated, celebrutant. In reality Paris is in her fifth celebrated season as a reality show personality, she hawks her own fragrance, records albums and stars in numerous low budget feature films.
So love her or hate her, be infatuated or indifferent to her, whatever mojo she's invoking seems to be working out.
