2_1_1526312_w091686A[1].jpg The line between what passes for news, sports and entertainment has never been blurrier.Newscasts and newspapers are frequently leading their coverage with the latest tales of million-dollar athletes and 'A" list celebrities who find themselves in legal hot water.There's obviously a method to this madness - the public seemingly can't get enough.Or can they?1[1].jpg Websites like TMZ.com and PerezHilton.com are among the most frequented on the web. TV shows like Entertainment Tonight, The Insider and Access Hollywood stop channel surfers in their tracks.So who can blame the main networks for taking a "If you can't beat 'em, join 'em" mentality?For that reason, I'm curious what you think about the O.J. Simpson gong show that is currently dominating coverage, both mainstream and tabloid (or are they now one in the same?)Unless you live in a cave - in which I'd be really interested to know how you're reading this! - you simply can't avoid this "mega-story."But that doesn't mean you have to like it.So fess up.Are you glued to your TV sets, spending hours surfing the Web and salivating at the thought of picking up a fresh batch of magazines at the grocery store this weekend?Are you disgusted at the fact this is what passes for news and can't believe far more relevant stories - there's still a war going on, right? - are being passed over?Or are you greeting this all with a collective yawn and simply going about your daily business, not wasting a single brain cell wondering if the O.J. tape was doctored, whether the Goldman family will get their proceeds and who Nancy Grace has lined up to yell at tonight?Post your thoughts below - and click HERE to vote on my latest Jury Poll question on this very topic.
