Michael Jackson Redux

Bill OReilly’s Talking Points segment last night focused on the media hype surrounding Michael Jackson.  Unfortunately, by dwelling on the self-styled “King of Pop” – even in a critical way – and then returning to the subject during the ‘body language’ segment by showing us Brooke Shields’ tear-filled eulogy, O’Reilly simply added his voice to the din.  However, I do give O’Reilly credit for pointing out the media’s hypocrisy in harping, while Jackson was alive, on his alleged child molestation acts  — even after he was acquitted — and now elevating Jackson post-mortem to the level of Martin Luther King.  That is just the latest example of mainstream media hypocrisy – just take a look at the New York Times on a daily basis.

O’Reilly also commented on how some are using the race card against anyone who dares to question Michael Jackson’s character or his selfless devotion to peace, love, etc.  etc.  That is a valid point — just look at how Congressman Peter King‘s critical comments about Jackson were jumped on by the race-card crowd. 

But it is time for the Factor to return to more substantive issues and leave the Jackson stories to the thrill-seekers in the mainstream press.
