Manic Media - Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough

It may be just that the Buddhist in me isn't particularly compassionate. But I'm finding the whole hysterical media coverage of Michael Jackson sadder. I've got over 600 articles so far in my Google Reader. With the prospect of hundreds more about; psychological assessment, conspiracies, plastic surgery, skin conditions, the world weeping and the pros and cons of befriending chimps. Lest we forget that he's been played out in the media as a Wacko Jacko for years. Now people say he was miss-understood?

My condolences to his family and friends, but let's be honest about who he was, which wasn't Mother Teresa, curb the frenzy and report on some other news.
