Did you know that "most of the world" is busily preparing for the Royal Wedding?!

Me neither. But that's what Andrea Mitchell just said. Shit...I haven't even ordered a cake or got fitted for my tux. I'm such a slacker!

"MOST OF THE WORLD" doesn't give a shit about what you say, Andrea. It's a MEDIA spectacle, no one else gives a flying fuck.

2. Pathetic on so many levels!
I haven't been able to watch the "news" in ages.

3. What a royal load of bullshit
Most of the world is busy trying to survive one more day while filthy rich leeches like the "royals" and Andrea Mitchell put on airs and waste far more in resources than they are worth.

The U.S. main stream media is a complete disgrace.

4. Didn't we fight a war a while back.......
to get away from the Brits and their "royals"?

Why in the world would people in this country be so obsessed with them?

:shrug:

5. people in this country are not. Only or MSM who
love the idea of rubbing elbows with royalty. After all, they think of themselves as America's royalty, so reporting, no, OVERreporting on this crap is to be expected.

6. its just a way for the media not to report issues that do matter to
people, it's just all hype.

7. I'm still packing, but time is running out.
I didn't want to go at first, but as a commoner Kate understandably wants some of her people there.
Hahahahha

Merry Olde England never tires of conflating storybook tales to their figureheads. Next up: If Kate gets a hangnail it'll be "the curse of Princess Di's ring".

8. let's face it, once again they are using a royal wedding to
try to get people interested in the royal family again. You notice so many of the other weddings in that family were private and in some ways a failure to enhance the honor of the royals. So now they have placed all the pressure on these two. They just want to recreate the Diana effect. Won't happen.
