If this comes across as heartless, so be it. I’m already sick of hearing about Michael Jackson’s death. It reminds me of when Anna Nicole Smith died. These drug addled celebrity types get more press when they O.D. than actual, tragic events like 911. I was surfing through the news channels this morning, as I always do, and could not find one station reporting anything different. I get that he is a cultural icon, but the bombardment of every mundane detail coupled with weeping celebrities recounting this “great” man’s life is ridiculous.
I turn on CNN, and they have this guy giving his thoughts:
Honestly, Kurt Loder? So, I turn to FOX and find this (which is actually pretty awesome):
MSNBC and all the other alphabet stations had similar stuff. My prediction is we will continue to be saturated, bombarded, and psychologically raped by Jackson tributes for the next four weeks. You heard it here first.
