MSNBC anchor (Mika Brzezinski ) tears up Paris script

Mika Brzezinski, co-presenter of MSNBC's Morning Joe programme, refused to read out the story of the celebrity socialite's release from jail ahead of items on Iraq and developments at the White House.

In a scene reminiscent of Paddy Chayefsky's classic film Network, it shows Ms Brzezinski repeatedly refusing to read the Hilton script and arguing with her co-presenters about its place as the lead item.

She told viewers: 'I hate it and I don't think it should be our lead.'

She went on: 'I just don't believe in covering that story, at least not as the lead story on the newscast, when we have a day like today.'

Ms Brzezinski, whose father is Zbigniew Brzezinski, the former National Security Adviser under Jimmy Carter, first screwed up the script and refused to read it.

Then, on the next bulletin, she refused to read it again, took a co-presenter's cigarette lighter, and tried to burn the script.

Later, she refused to read the script for a third time and took it straight to the shredder in the studio, where she fed it into the machine.

When producers played images of Hilton leaving jail, where she served her sentence for a probation violation after her drink-driving conviction, Ms Brzezinski was shown with her head in her hands as the cameras returned to the studio.
