I'm pretty fed up with all the coverage about Michael Jackson.

So I decided to listen to "right wing propaganda radio" to listen to something different.
Guess WTF they are talking about? Michael Jackson.

I thought right wing radio was opposed to coverage about celebrities.
Why does right wing radio keep on talking about Michael Jackson?
Or is this another proof that all the media is right wing (All of them are talking about the same thing = Michael Jackson)

Just today, I heard Neal Boortz and Laura Ingraham talking about Michael Jackson.

I just found this in Neal Boortz webpage
Boortz on boortz.com

The whole world seemed to be wrapped up in that spectacle from Los Angeles - the memorial service for Michael Jackson. I'm just wondering how many American servicemen killed protecting our country were buried yesterday. Something worth thinking about.


Laura's Official Home On The Web
Has a poll asking people:
Does Michael Jackson deserve a reputation for breaking racial boundaries with his music?

If they were smart, they'd just not speak of it. But of course the airheads have to fill in the time.

I noticed that Dr. Savage filled very little of his air time with MJs death. God bless him.

No all media is not it is not right wing. All this coverage is strictly for ratings because it seems America is full of idol worship. Jackson was also a train wreck of a oerson and the gawkers like to look at train wrecks.

Right wing radio is not standing up for its so called principles
If MJ is such a bad person, criminal, the worst in our society, etc.... Then they shouldn't help make him a martyr by keeping on talking about him.

Right wing radio is doing exactly what they always criticize everybody else about.
Going for whatever is popular and makes money
instead of what it's "conservative"

Didn't watch a lick of his funeral, and definitely didn't pour any of my 40 on the ground for him.

I was fed up with MJ's coverage

It sells time and the media will wring every last dollar they can out of it.When you look at the media just follow the dollars thewy are not some third estate;they are in it for the money and power trip.
