News Channels: All Nicole All The Time

Despite the fact that few details were immediately known about the cause of death of Anna Nicole Smith Thursday, broadcast and cable news outlets were all over the story, leading Brian Williams to comment on Thursday's NBC Nightly News: "This may say a lot about our current culture of celebrity and media these days when all the major cable news networks switched over to nonstop live coverage this afternoon when word arrived that Anna Nicole Smith had died." Several cable programs that otherwise might have focused attention on the Scooter Libby trial, bumped their coverage to later time periods to stay with saturation coverage of the Smith story. On CNN's Situation Room, host Wolf Blitzer interviewed fellow CNN host Larry King, who disclosed that he has a painting that Smith had done hanging in his home. King predicted that there will be "a major motion picture" about Smith. On Fox News, New York Daily News publisher Mort Zuckerman commented that Smith's life had aspects of "a certain kind of really lousy Hollywood script." The website TMZ reported that the film Illegal Aliens, starring Smith, which was scheduled to be released in April, has been withdrawn by its producer, Edgewood Studios. Three screenings of the film that were scheduled to take place between Saturday and Thursday were also canceled, TMZ said.
