Michael Jackson Coverage: Make it Stop

I loved him just as much as anyone else, but it’s time to close the book on the endless Michael Jackson coverage.  I found myself home on a Friday night channel surfing, and I came across another one of those Michael Jackson specials, where everyone who’s “close” to him, discusses who he really was.  Here’s the rundown: Neverland was a way for him to get the childhood that he never had; the molestation lawsuit changed him forever; and he was just so talented.  Apparently there are 5 million ways to say those three things.  It’s clear that no one being interviewed actually knew the guy, which means it’s just a bunch of speculation that I don’t need to see on every channel of my television.  So until his three children are old enough to do an interview, I’d like to declare a moratorium on this coverage.  If you miss him, just go rent ‘This is It.’  You’ll get to see his behind-the-scenes creative process, and feel free to loop it a gazillion times – that should do it.
