    Seems as of late there has been so much coverage of Michael Jackson, so much so that if you turn on any electronic in the first twenty seconds you're most likely to hear about Michael Jackson.

    There's comes a point where its just too much. Do we really need a live feed of MJ's memorial? Do we really need to hear the same stories about MJ every twenty minutes on CNN?

    According to CNN anchor Don Lemon..YES

    Shiela Jackson-Lee today submitted House Res 600.

    This would be a United States House of Representatives Resolution honoring the death of Micheal Jackson.

    Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee, a Democrat from Texas, is asking Congress to recognize the late Michael Jackson as a "global humanitarian and a noted leader in the fight against worldwide hunger and medical crises"

    The resolution by Rep. Jackson-Lee, which was introduced the day after Jackson's death, asks the US House of Representatives to honor Jackson as "an accomplished contributor to the worlds of arts and entertainment, scientific advances in the treatment of HIV/AIDS, and global food security."

    Political pundits have already begun speculating that honoring Michael Jackson in Congress could lead to some heated debates by those who think that he either does or does not deserve a congressional acknowledgment.

    Ethnic riots in China, flooding in China and India, the G8 summit about to open, possible action (on inaction) in the Congress on any number of important issues, lots of other stuff happening in the world. Yes, I think you will see all the mags and newspapers will be debating whether there was too much coverage by this weekend.

    Turn the TV off if you don't want to hear it!!!!!!!!!!!!! The ratings have soared with the MJ coverage so obviously someone wants to hear it.

    You can read about other news online if you don't want to hear about it anymore.

    Yes. Too much.
    Bottom line...he was a gifted entertainer leading a challenging life away from the music. That's it...no need to parade the family around making a spectacle of this. LA is now stuck with a huge security bill for all of it, and I'm sure funds are in short supply anyway. The man is honored everytime a song plays on the radio. Leave it at that. Mariah Carey's tits hanging out while she sings I'll Be There...who needs tributes like that other than a frat house.

    Before he died he was the laughing stock of most everybody I know.

    And now that he is dead, it is a different story altogether. What a world we live in.

    Yes, it's very sad that it took Michael Jackson's tragic death to remind the world of the impact he had on it, not to mention the joy that he brought to so many for 40 years in show business.


    I think the coverage has been fitting and pretty much deserved. We didn't just lose any celebrity or entertainer with Michael Jackson, we lost one of the greatest, if not THE greatest, the world has ever known. This was no small thing to the millions of fans around the world who grew up with and enjoyed his music and the influence he had on pop culture. Sorry if those of you who were not fans are having a hard time with that, but it is what it is.

    Anyone who dislikes all the coverage of MJ must realize... it's not his fault. (duh!)

    The media gravitates towards specific issues... epescailly shocking or bad news. They thrieve on it... and end up beating stories to death.

    The media is to blame... not MJ. I say this because... those sick of overlly-covered stories somtimes take their disgust out on the "subject" (person, event, etc.) of those stories.

    Remember, Princess Diana, 9/11, 2004 tsunami, Katrina, Pope John Paul II's death, Election of new Pope, etc.

    Once the media finds a hot story... they cover it constantly and beat it to death.

    Yes, I agree that Michael Jackson was a great singer. But enough is enough. This evening I watched the News on the BBC where the first 10 MINUTES of the broadcast was about the funeral of MJ. Then a 30 SECOND announcement that another British soldier was killed in Afganistan. Poor soldier! Too bad he couldn't sing as well as MJ, else he might have had a longer slot on the BBC News!

    i wasnt a fan of his at all, but i don't think he has been given to much coverage.

    The world felt his death, he was known EVERYWHERE.

    Basically i'm agreeing with you curiousjockaz icon_smile.gif

    hmmm, well I grew up in the 80's and MJ was the king of pop, the MTV generation creator with his videos that inspired the dance video and r&b's of today. The man as an artist was amazing, and there can never be enough of the memorial to MJ( one of the greatest artists) there will ever be. The man was a music icon, that will be missed by a generation.

    Michael Jackson is/was the most famous person in the world. The British solider is of no interest (as blunt as it sounds) to the viewing audience.

    It hasn't even gotten close to the ad nauseum of Anna Nicole Smith coverage.

    actually, to the more intelligent population, the death of another soldier is as important and in all probability more important then the funeral of a singer..

    The thing that strikes me of course, about shallow stupid comments like yours.. is Michael Jackson was a singer.. he made millions of dollars for singing..

    That Solider that died that you think so unimportant, fights to "apparently" protect freedom, for you and everyone else.. and you don't give a shit..

    Now personally, I'll take freedom over a song any day of the week..

    of course, I say "apparently" because of the nature of the war we all partake in.. however, the British solider who has had his/her life taken away from them deserves all the respect, admiration, attention and understanding we as humans can possibly muster.

    but your probably a little to fucked up for that aintcha ma lil hater icon_biggrin.gif
