Keeping things in perspective

Quote of the day:

Bauer-Griffin was also there when Spears shaved her head last year — a moment that the paparazzi consider the equivalent of the JFK assassination in terms of its news value.

From a 7-page Globe and Mail story, documenting the paparazzi hordes in their relentless pursuit of Britney Spears.

As a Canadian, I also found this factoid amusing:

Spears has topped the annual overall Yahoo online search rankings in six of the past seven years (and was No. 2 on the list of top online searches in Canada, second only to hockey, according to Yahoo).

Which is it, then? Is Spears as newsworthy as the JFK assassination, or is she merely the first runner-up to hockey?
