Washington Post Entertainment Section Wins Worst Spam Award

In The News

Which of these things do not belong here? Oh, only about 95% of them. The Washington Post--via Entertainment writer Lisa de Moraes--provides a whole lot of "entertainment" worthy of a good laugh. This newspaper "story" wins the award for worst spam and most keyword stuffing in one spot.
Normally an excellent news source, the Washington Post has outdone itself: "Lindsay Lohan stands up ‘Today’s’ Matt Lauer" may begin with Matt Lauer's supposed ire over being stood up by Lindsay Lohan, but be prepared for a brain freeze. The story's line-up includes Lauer's co-host Ann Curry, capture of 'notorious' gangster "Whitey" Bulger, floods in North Dakota, troop withdrawals in Afghanistan, President Obama, Lohan's court troubles probation violations.
Readers get to cover six subjects -- in the first two paragraphs alone.
Before the story is through, there's also a whole lot of Richard Hatch and his Survivor escapades, a slew of NBC shows, a heck of a lot of prison, and a heck of a lot more about Lindsay.
The Post writer seems to have learned a trick or two from good, old Perez Hilton: She's wowed the audience by stooping to the "La Lohan" level he so frequently abuses. For those not familiar, "La" and "LA" (aka, the actress' hometown of Los Angeles) equal the same when it comes to search engines like Google. Perez Hilton is apparently somewhat smarter than most people would believe, or sneakier. Hilton now uses the "La" as standard practice when referring to the actress.
You have to read it to believe it.
