Blogs > HNN > MJ

My silence over the last few weeks is owing wholly to a feeling of utter helplessness in the face of the MJ torrent.

I simply have been too demoralized by the extravaganza to summon up the energy to blog.

Every shallow inclination of the modern media has been on display.

But you don't need me to point this out.

I happened to be with a few undergraduates when the media started speculating about MJ's apparently imminent demise. They found the coverage--in particular the utterly vacuous videos of Never-Neverland's front gates--ridiculous.

I'm not saying they didn't watch. They also texted, surfed, talked to parents and had news of MJ's demise well before CNN made it official.

But they weren't being empty headed either. They knew it wasn't news. If only I was certain that CNN, Fox, et al. knew that, too.

And by the very same shallow modern media that ceaselessly and viciously attacked him only several years ago!
