Enough, Already 

Pin It

I am writing this letter to complain that there was way too much media coverage on Michael Jackson.

Instead of only one or two reports, the media continued with this story for about a week. I know that this man was important, but why cover the story on into infinity, when there are other more important stories to report?

Another complaint: What does Jackson’s passing have to do with local Utah news? There was another celeb who passed away—Karl Malden, who played on the 1970s TV show The Streets of San Francisco. But the press completely ignored that story.

One more Item: If Michael Jackson was the King of Pop, then who is the King of Diet Pop?
