The Stand on Media Jackals

Stephen King knows horror. And his take in Entertainment Weekly regarding the media circus that surrounded the Michael Jackson trial? Nothing short of horrific:

" It's sickening that it takes a columnist in an entertainment magazine to point out that more than 2,000 newspeople covered the Jackson trial — which is only a few hundred more than the number of American servicemen and women who have died in Iraq. On the same day that crowds gathered in Times Square (and around the world) to learn the fate of the Pale Peculiarity, another four suicide bombings took place in that tortured, bleeding country. And if you tell me that news doesn't belong in Entertainment Weekly, I respond by saying Michael Jackson under a black umbrella doesn't belong on the front page of the New York Times."

Scary Mr. King just jumped up a few notches in my book.
