Rumor Rat's sweat lodge death guru jailed

Oprah-endorsed New Age guru James A. Ray, who led a sweat lodge ceremony in Arizona last year in which three people died, is being held tonight on $5 million bond on three charges of manslaughter.

Kudos are in order for our pal The Big Cheese and the other busy newsvermin at Hollywood's Rumor Rat, who were on the story from the start and led the way in coverage of the scandal even before it was recognized as such and, while the morons at the corporate porn-pushing gossip site TMZ.com chase around interchangeable basketball players nabbed on drunk driving or gun raps or keep posting bum information on Michael Jackson's doctor until they get it right, showed how an entertainment site can expand its scope and cover serious news to great effect.
