Michael Jackson or an American Angel

So, I was sitting down to see what was on the TV and saw on my satellite guide that TVGN (TV Guide Channel) was showing "Farrah Fawcett: American Angel Remembered". So, since every other channel has been airing non-stop tributes to Michael Jackson, I thought I'd check the Farrah Fawcett tribute.

Sure, I wore the parachute pants and learned the moves to Thriller. They were great times!

However, when I clicked on the directory on the show about Farrah Fawcett, guess what came up...A tribute to Michael Jackson. Does anyone else think that is tacky?...not to show something about Michael Jackson, but tacky in the advertising of the tribute to Farrah Fawcett and instead showing something on Michael Jackson.

I guess it's all about the green.

The last two days, no matter where you were in the world, if you looked at a newspaper or turned on a TV, you saw the face of Michael Jackson. On Friday night's half-hour broadcast of "NBC Nightly News" host Brian Williams spent three minutes discussing news other than Michael Jackson.

Now that the shock has warn off, fans are celebrating Jackson's life, rather than mourning his death. News of possible drug use is surfacing in the Jackson case, and to fill the time, reporters are now discussing his financial empire, which is in disarray. But we already new that.

The news media is now finding time to devote to other matters: the economy, unrest in Iran, global warming, Bernie Madoff, and Gov. Mark Sanford, the wacky Republican governor from South Carolina, who disappeared for most of last week. His Wednesday news conference caused a media frenzy, but the Michael Jackson news temporarily saved him from media scrutiny. Now he's back. We all love a good scandal.
