Lohan Sentenced To… OMG, Her Fingernail!?!

Yesterday, the actress Lindsay Lohan was sentenced to 90 days in jail for probation violations (from a DUI conviction). Over the past 24 hours, Lohan has been mentioned 78 times on cable news (CNN, Fox News, MSNBC), per a TVEyes search. And she made the evening news last night (ABC and CBS). Still, perhaps you’re not up on the very latest Lohan news? A headline, from the Larry King Live blog at CNN.com today:

“Lindsay Lohan wears profane manicure in court.”

(I do not promise that it is worth your time to figure out what this means— isn’t the headline enough, really? — but here’s a hint: it’s not a “French manicures are so vulgar” sort of thing.)

Has America ever needed a media watchdog more than now? Help us by joining CJR today.
