Michael Jackson, Have We had Enough Yet?

On June 25, 2009 singer/entertainer Michael Jackson died of a heart attack.  The world was stunned for the sudden loss of this great entertainer.  Immediately, fans poured their appreciation for Jackson in many ways.  Hundreds if not thousands came outside to the hospital Jackson was rushed to in LA. The Apollo Theater in Harlem also had a big crowd of fans.

Since his death, many of us have wondered questions such as: what will happen to his children, and his estate.  But as of today, August 12, 2009 almost 2 months from the day he died, he is still headline news.  I feel enough is a enough.  I am sick and tired of turning on CNN and other news channels and instead of learning about things going on in our nation or world, its all about Jackson.

Yesterday I decided to go to a few websites and see if Jackson had at least one story on their home page.  The links below, are proof I indeed found such stories.

CNN: Police search Las Vegas pharmacy in Jackson case

USA Today: Michael Jackson’s ‘This Is It’ movie due out Oct. 30

MSN: No final word yet on Michael Jackson burial

Rolling Stone: Michael Jackson Autopsy Results Sealed During Investigation

MSNBC: Will Jackson siblings, trainer, go dancing?

I know Jackson was a living icon, and he died suddenly, but yes I have had enough.  I want our media to stop reporting everything Jackson.  Why should we care about if Jackson’s siblings go on dancing with the stars, when there are more important things to report going on in the nation, and world.

So now I ask you, “Have you had enough yet?”

  1. Yes!!! I have had enough of this crap! While I grew up with his music and liked some of it I really don’t care much about how he died, who might have given him the prescriptions etc.. Who really cares? Why are they blaming someone else for his death?? Did the doctor force it down his throat?? Just look at him people!…Does this look like a guy who was normal?? I think he had a few “Issues” don’t you think?? This isn’t a “shocker” for most people.

  2. I had enough of it by July 1. He was a man with talents the world valued. I’m sorry he lived a life that was surreal and dragged his children through it too. His family is grieving I’m sure and they deserve our prayers but let’s stop the hero worship already. Let’s move on.

  3. There will be news about MJ for weeks and months, if not years, to come. The estate thing will take forever to hash out, not to mention what’s going to happen to the kids. Look at the Anna Nicole hoopla that was going on.

    Once the local stations started covering Lindsay Lohan’s whereabouts, news went down the drain.

  4. I think the news is a privately funded marketing scam even when their covering current politics or world economy (sometimes especially then), and I don’t expect much more from them when it comes to someone who was such a product of a media and image obsessed generation. Ive been listening to Micheal Jackson since I was nine, and I’m sad and curious about what happened, but I don’t really think the talking heads are the ones I look to for answers for anything.
