Threatening World Peace

Among the far left whinning seen in this item is this:

Human rights activist Bianca Jagger added her voice to the fight against the death penalty. She said countries that reintroduce capital punishment because of the war on terror would ultimately fail to stop terrorism.

The ex-wife of Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger also criticized U.S. President George W. Bush for failing to stop in 2000 the execution of a Texas man who was imprisoned as a 17-year-old.

She said Bush's re-election would pose a threat to the world and create the possibility of a third world war.

"I think President Bush is, in my view if I may say so, the most dangerous man in power today," said Jagger, who is a goodwill ambassador for the Council of Europe.

Can someone please explain to me why this woman is given any press coverage at all, or is even taken seriously? Her only claim to fame is having sex with a member of the Rolling Stones, and that's all.
