Irrelevancies in the media

Hillary Clinton collapsed during a speech today, but declined a trip to the ER. Essentially, she was weakened by a flu-type ailment and she'll be fine, which is good.

But the irrelevancy is this: the story on her collapse mentioned that Bill Clinton had a 4x bypass last year. Why? It's not like a statement that Hugh Rodham (Hillary's brother) had a quad bypass and Hillary has a heart problem -- there's no genetic connection.

Media irrelevancies.
