Overheard at the Michael Jackson Death Parade

I was just at the car wash, and in the little room where they make you wait to get your car back. They were blasting the Michael Jackson death parade. I overheard this little exchange between Anderson Cooper and Larry King on CNN minutes ago...
"So, Larry, you were close to the coffin?

Yes, Anderson.

What was it like?

It looked like a coffin. An expensive coffin."
The Pew Research Center released findings last week indicating that "nearly two-in-three Americans say news organizations gave too much coverage to the story. At the same time, half say the media struck the right balance between reporting on Jackson's musical legacy and the problems in his personal life.

Anyone caught making fun of the media for giving too much air time to Michael Jackson are 'elitists'.

Okay, I'm an elitist.

For shame on the U.S. media for treating his death as if it were 9/11 and Martin Luther King Jr. getting assassinated at the same time. I can't wait to see them choked to death until they're all gone.
