Journalists to boycott MJ coverage

John Robinson, editor of the News & Record in Greensboro, N.C., and Bruce Tomaso, a journalist in Dallas, TX, respectively, have had enough ... of the Michael Jackson "silliness," as Tomaso put it.Both complained on Twitter that they were having nothing of today's memorial coverage.The News & Record won't have MJ on tomorrow's cover and Tomaso said he plans to boycott by tuning-into C-Span.
Look at the people in the public eye who have the greatest fame and the worst private lives; actors, perverts, comedians, musicians, politicians like Barack Obama, and people like Britney Spears, famous for being famous.

Immensely talented for a short period of time, MJ died on his reputation for his creativity and talent, but if you look at how he chose to live the last decades of his life, it's pathetic. The unreality of his quest for perfect love and perfect beauty killed him. He wanted to be the young Elizabeth Taylor, so beautiful it made your hair hurt. He actually believed he could do it. And now people adore him and his neuroses. "He changed my life." I am sorry to hear that.

He is being worshiped as some sort of cultural icon with people weeping and wailing and for what? Some good records and a few live shows? How did he improve society or individual lives?

Today's cultural entertainment performers like MJ and Madonna et al are symptoms of a spiritual vacuum. They are false messiahs who will only perpetuate the notion that one can find happiness in fame and wealth.

It is amazing there hasn't been a white face on the stage of the memorial and Jackson did everything he could to erase his blackness.

  1. Awesome! You are so right. The moral bankruptcy of the entertainment industry represents the spiritually vaccuous culture that we live in.
