"Let Me Just Interrupt You, Congressman," MSNBC Anchor Says, Before Going to Breaking News on Justin Bieber

It’s not like MSNBC anchor Andrea Martin was talking to Congresswoman Jane Harman about anything important before she cut her off to go to OMG Bieber. They were only talking about the NSA, wiretapping, and the security of our federal government. But, you know, OMG Bieber!

To be fair, I’m sure this wasn’t Andrea Martin’s decision, and that she was just as disgusted with the interruption as Harman and everyone with three brain cells at home was. It’s just another instance where the news has been co-opted by pop culture, like this Upworthy headline that CNN ran yesterday.

Interestingly, it was only seven years ago that a MSNBC anchor refused to lead with a Paris Hilton story, choosing instead to cover news.
