Woman loses phone; world's media agog

Sometimes a story can change how you see the world and your fellow man. And then there's this... 

I'm not singling out Yahoo News because a quick search revealed a whole host of other news websites were equally gripped by the drama - from Gulf News to to CBS News; I clicked back 15 pages of the Google search before I lost the will to live - but, frankly, it's no wonder so many people take a dim view of the press. I bet half these sites didn't even know they were reporting the Double Phone Loss of US Heiress - they had an automated feed from AP and off it went.
How depressing is that?
