CNN.com is reporting that Martha Stewart has been found guilty on all four counts against her. The same reports are coming from NBC, CNBC, MSNBC, Fox, Bloomberg, Vanity Fair, TV Guide, Nickelodeon and TBN.

The sentencing trial will be covered on E!, Inside Edition, 60 Minutes and SNL.

With so much going on in the world, it's always amazing to me how celebrity can steal the spotlight. Martha Stewart acted on insider information was found guilty of conspiracy, obstrustion and dishonesty, something that's right up there with the problems at Enron, WorldComm and the Yankees. But at the same time, nothing of this situation touches the "regular people" of this planet, except those who are looking forward to her show tomorrow on preparing the perfectly timeless Easter dinner. So is this a big deal because of her celebrity, because she's a known name with a known brand? Or is it a big deal because we're all shallow, and watching other similarly shallow people get theirs is our favorite national pastime?
