Watch MSNBC cut into NSA coverage to announce Justin Bieber’s arrest
Important breaking news!
While Twitter debated whether the arrest of one of the world’s most famous pop stars should even be considered “news,” some outlets found it vital enough to interrupt regularly-scheduled programming to bring viewers the latest update.
Former Congresswoman Jane Harman (D-Calif.) was in the middle of an interview with MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell about the NSA when a major breaking story hit Mitchell’s desk. It wasn’t about peace talks in Syria or political protests in Ukraine. It wasn’t even another update on what Mitchell and Harman were discussing, the NSA.
With yesterday’s top story, who else would it be?
Not everyone agreed that Biebergate was a matter of national importance. In fact, many became angry at Bieber or saw it as a giant joke.
Bieber’s mugshot went live late that morning, which birthed the Tweetdeck screenshot of everyone tweeting out the mugshot (and the subsequent screenshot of everyone tweeting out that screenshot). Some didn’t hear about it for hours, while others took the time remind their viewers about how drunk driving can destroy lives.
But more than anything, it enraged New Jersey-based comedian Vic DiBitetto.
When he heard the news, he was not having it with Bieber and went on an expletive-laced rant. Luckily for us, he had the sense to film it.
And when Bieber’s fans inevitably attacked him, he only had one thing to say to them.
