American 'culture'

On its front page today, BBC News asks:

Why is Los Angeles so obsessed with troubled singer Britney Spears? (BBC News, Saturday, 16 February 2008)

Why is the BBC so obsessed with (Los Angeles' obsession with) troubled singer Britney Spears?

Restricting myself to the current month, I find BBC News articles about aforementioned individual on 16 Feb, 15 Feb, 13 Feb, 12 Feb, 09 Feb, 07 Feb, 06 Feb, 05 Feb, 02 Feb, 01 Feb. That is 10 articles in 16 days. Is it fair to say the BBC is being a tiny bit hypocritical?
