So many scandals, so little lapdog media time.

Jolie says she carries a mutated BRCA1 gene and her doctors estimated her risk of developing breast cancer was 87 percent. The actress’ A-list status makes the story of her preventive double mastectomy newsworthy and many appreciate Jolie’s candor.

But it’s telling that CNN, NBC and ABC reportedly opened their morning programs with the Jolie news.

Another reason to stick with Fox?
