Why is Anna Nicole's problems news?

I'd just like to throw out a plea to the Associated Press or any other news organization to explain something to me. While I understand the general public tends to prefer bullshit "celebrity" gossip over REAL news, I'm curious just why a C-list celebrity's son's death has become one of the top stories of the week. Can you explain what the relevance is? Last time i checked, there was a disatrous war going on in Iraq. Our politicians in Washington are more corrupt than a third world nation. Yet, Anna Nicole Smith having a family tragedy is front page news and on's home page. Explain that to me, please. Thank you.
