I think that they are just upset that the black support that he is getting, you know how we are, Its a black star that became everybodies star but when they fall from "everybodies" eyes like Mike did we run to get thier back, The white race is finickey when it comes to black stars they always have been , when we are winning they love us to death, cant get enough, but when we start loosing they start loosing interest, in some cases they promote the punishment whenever something happens, but then the black race steps up to the plate to try to defend, and sometimes we take it to far too, but we should be used to that, Now if whites could have had micheal like they wanted without the BET Awards and the Black Star Studded Memorial he had it might have been different, but since they dont feel like they are a part of it, they dont care, Hey it might sound biased, but OJ, Mike Vick, Ray Charles ,you name it it happen to them, and it took years for them to be accepted back into the graces of thier white fan base, now let it be somebody that is popular to them and everything is alright because its all white.........call me a idiot if you will, but you have to keep it real when you speak on these things, thats a generalization, but a majority apply to the statement

The public closely tracked the sudden death of pop superstar Michael Jackson last week, though 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.

With reports about Jackson’s June 25th death in Los Angeles dominating media coverage at week’s end, 30% say they followed these stories very closely. A similar share (31%) say this was the story they followed more closely than any other, according to the latest weekly News Interest Index survey, conducted June 26-29 by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press.

Blacks followed the death of the African American singer – who had been on the national stage for four decades – more closely than the population as a whole. Eight-in-ten African Americans say they followed news about Jackson’s death very closely, compared with 22% of whites. Women followed the story more closely than men (35% very closely compared with 26%). Close to four-in-ten (38%) of those under 40 say they followed the music icon’s death very closely, compared with 27% of those between 40 and 64 and 20% of those 65 and older.

A separate analysis of media coverage by the Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism shows that for the entire week of June 22-28 the Jackson story and the bloody aftermath of the disputed Iranian elections received similar levels of media coverage. The protests in Iran made up 19% of the newshole for the week, while the Jackson story took up 18%. But from the time the Jackson story broke Thursday afternoon to the end of the day Friday, 60% of the news coverage studied was devoted to his death, his life story and his legacy, according to PEJ. Iran coverage dropped to 7% of the newshole in that same time period.

About two-thirds of the public (64%) say news organizations gave too much attention to the death of the 50-year-old performer, who had been rehearsing for a major comeback tour. About three-in-ten (29%) say the coverage was the right amount. Only 3% say there had been too little coverage.

When asked about the content of the coverage, 26% say the media focused too much on the scandals and personal problems in the life of the self-proclaimed “King of Pop”; 11% say the coverage focused too much on Jackson’s successful musical career. Half say news organizations struck the right balance.

More than half of African Americans (54%) say the amount of coverage has been about right, compared with 25% of whites. Seven-in-ten whites say there has been too much coverage, compared with 36% of blacks.

About half of African Americans (47%) also say that the coverage has focused too much on the scandals and personal problems in Jackson’s life, compared with 22% of whites. On this question, there is little difference by gender: 28% of women say the coverage focused too much on scandal, compared with 24% of men. About a quarter of those under 40 (24%), say coverage has focused too much on Jackson’s personal problems, compared with 28% of those 40-64 and those 65 and older.

The Week’s Top Stories

The Jackson story grabbed people’s attention late in what had already been a busy news week with continuing developments in Iran, debate in Washington on health care reform, an infidelity scandal involving South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford and a train crash in Washington, D.C., that left nine dead.

By way of comparison, the 30% that say they followed the Jackson story very closely is similar to the 28% that followed the death of Tim Russert, the NBC newsman, very closely in June 2008 and the 30% that followed the death of Steve Irwin, “The Crocodile Hunter,” very closely in September 2006. Still, interest in Jackson’s death is far less than the 54% who said they followed the sudden deaths of John F. Kennedy Jr. in July 1999 and Princess Diana in September 1997.

Meanwhile, a similar share (29%) very closely followed the announcement of criminal charges against Jackson alleging child molestation in November 2003. A smaller share (13%) said they very closely followed Jackson’s acquittal in the California case in June 2005.

In other news, about three-in-ten (31%) say they very closely followed the Iranian government’s crackdown on election protesters last week. That’s comparable to the 28% that said they were following the post-election protests in Iran very closely one week earlier and indicates continued strong interest in the story. Close to two-in-ten (18%) say they followed developments in Iran more closely than any other story.

A comparable share (29%) say they followed reports about the debate in Washington on health care reform very closely. About two-in-ten (19%) say they followed the health care debate more closely than any other major story. Those stories made up 7% of coverage, according to PEJ.

A smaller percentage (16%) say they followed Congressional passage of legislation intended to limit greenhouse gases. That story was followed most closely by 6% and accounted for 2% of the newshole.

Another 16% say they very closed followed Gov. Mark Sanford’s acknowledgement of an affair with an Argentinean woman; 4% say this was the story they followed most closely. The media devoted 11% of the newshole to stories about Sanford.

Close to two-in-ten (18%) say they very closely followed news about the crash involving two commuter trains in Washington, D.C., that left nine people dead. For 3%, this was the story they followed most closely. The media devoted 5% of the newshole to this story.

really? i guess dying on the s***ter is funnier so thats what gets on tv.

and on him having more black fans....theres loads of white maniac fans in countries like germany (remember when he was showing his kid off on the balcony and dangled the kid) that was in germany.

i just dont think his funeral should be broadcast live on NEWS channels, if any1 can give me a reason why his death is more important than 150+ dead chinese rioters then go ahead, otherwise shut the f*** up. theres been too much coverage/theres been coverage on the wrong channels.

too much coverage on channels that shouldn't be covering it like CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, etc...they should have covered it for like a day and moved on

channels like vh1, mtv, talk show radio's etc...those people should still be talking about it because he was Michael Jackson and one of the greatest music entertainers ever

also Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson etc should not be talking about Mike anymore or using his name in rallys to promote unity. Mike's music speaks for itself and we don't need any speaker using his name for their agendas.
