Media Watch: Miss NM on TMZ

missnm_tmzSo what do you do when the former Miss New Mexico gets pulled over for a dui and the story gets picked up by Do you cover it or leave it alone? Cassie Yardeni and I voted to leave it alone, while Sito Negron voted to post it on the NPT blog.

Everyone knew it would be a hit grabber, but still, if we didn’t report when she won her crown, why would we report that she had fallen down? Sito brought up the point that we’ve reported on other dui arrests, which is true, but I felt it not worth our attention.

What would you do? Is it blog-worthy or newsworhty? Is there room in our day for news like this?
