I told you so, Twitter is bigger than you think

See what I mean, Twitter is the new news network. But notice, everyone went to the web to confirm. We still don’t believe what one person (or 100,000 people) says. We want confirmation.

He ‘Beat It!’

A sullen MJ back in the day. Posted by Hello

Is it the money? Is it the fame? The looks? Talent? What is it that saved MJ and OJ. Maybe those things got them acquitted – maybe not. Maybe they really were innocent. Maybe if the glove doesn’t fit you must acquit. Maybe if sparkle glove fits you must acquit. Who knows.

Anyway, here’s a good piece of advice. “Michael Jackson’s lawyer said today the singer will no longer share his bed with young boys.” (AP) … “‘He’s not going to do that anymore,’ attorney Thomas Mesereau Jr. told NBC’s Today.”

Michael Jackson on trial

Here’s another biggy! At least it has garnished more media attention than anything else. MJ is on trial for molesting boys. He decided to chance trial versus trying to buy the kid’s silence (like the last one).

Funny how both BBC and CNN dedicate huge amounts of resources and bandwidth to cover a trial. Of course who could forget the O. J. Simpson trial or the Manson trial or even the Scopes Monkey trial – all big media circuses.

Evil has its allure…. Some people have the same fascination for Jack the Ripper and Hitler. – Vincent Bugliosi, attorney in Manson trial

That’s why the media frenzy will never die. They are symbiotes; feeding each other.
