Miley Cyrus performed at MTV's Video Music Awards and then the Internet went wild. During her performance, there were more than 300,000 tweets per minute about her. In total, there were more than 4.5 million mentions of her on twitter (and counting).
Ever since the show was aired, people have been opining about her actions on websites, on television, on the radio, in newspapers and everywhere else.
Because there was such a strong reaction, does that make the situation newsworthy? Is there a legitimate news story about her performance?
Or are the media capitalizing on the public reaction and exploiting it to boost their readership/viewership?
