MSNBC Carries Hearing On Dispute Over Where Anna Nicole Is to Be Buried

The dispute over where Anna Nicole Smith should be interred is being covered live by the media on MSNBC. Howard K. Stern's attorney has just introduced footage from Entertainment Tonight over the objections of the attorney for Ms. Smith's mother, who asked whether she would be allowed to introduce her own videos, and whether this footage was unaltered. The judge said something to the effect that he knew "how these things worked" and instructed Mr. Stern's attorney to continue. The footage is intended to provide evidence about Ms. Smith's relationship with her mother shortly before the celebrity's death. The media, which has covered the Anna Nicole Smith saga with such eagerness, is now part of the story.
