Yes, Michael Jackson was a world reknowned pop star, and sure he should get some media coverage of his untimely death (as should Farrah Fawcett) but what about all the military members who also died the same day or week? Why do they not get the recognition they deserve? Are we really such a celebrity obsessed country that those celebrities mean more to us than those who fight and sacrifice their lives for our freedoms? I agree with the woman in this article completely. (Not saying anything bad about MJ by the way, I loved him as a musician)
Sarah, true Michael Jackson didn't sign up to be in the military, no one is questioning that but why does ONE person's accomplishments out weigh another's? It's not even that these men should be Idolized by the media but I didn't even know there were soldiers or anyone injured in Afghanistan. The war that everyone keeps crying for us to send more troops to but no one is covering it or letting us know what is going on over there. But God Forbid we miss one day of not hearing about how they are investigating the death of MJ or how hard his family is taking it.
