Did they manage to work in an image of Obama or his man-beast wife on the cover?

And just where were all these friends while MJ was alive? Nobody gave the man the time of day after all those scandals, but they push in front of a camera the minute he's dead?

The Time cover should say, “Jackson bails out state run media.”

If there’s anything good about this, it might be that MJ’s death crowded out Time’s Health Care Reform edition - at least for one week.

Innocence Lost, Found, and Stolen

Excerpt:

“...The MSM is the last to know. But that’s understandable, since the MSM mostly consists of the living dead — corpses, zombies, and assorted ghouls. So one of their own has... you can’t call it “died,” since that’s redundant. Nor can you call it “grief,” since there’s so much manic glee associated with it. Call it a “monster party” with all the ghouls in attendance: Larry King, Deepak Chopra, Geraldo, Al Sharpton, all reminiscing about their fellow ghoul. All the corpses are weeping today: Elizabeth Taylor, Madonna, Justin, Britney. But no one is innocent enough to blurt out the simple truth to these undead: Dude, he f’d little boys! ...”

For the first time in about 5 years, I picked up a copy of TIME at the airport last week. Stunned at how thin the magazine was - about half the content that I remember the magazine having.

Vultures circling the carcass for fun and P R O F I T! All MJ means to TIME et.al. is SALES and M O N E Y.

Lance Bass is an interesting choice. In what way did he know Michael Jackson? If for not being the first openly homosexual (I refuse to use the word ‘gay’) on Dancing with the Stars, I would never have known of him.

The paper they now use is thinner and magazine ad revenue is WAY DOWN. I haven’t read TIME magazine in at least 20 years.

The MJ issue will likely be double that if not more.

“Ahhh..., they’re rushing out the Pedophile Issue...”

...please Star Traveler....we can’t mention that...otherwise people will accuse us of hate speech doncha’know....Michael must be remembered as a “gentle soul”

PS...somebody in CA went thru court records and found a drug store was suing Jackson for unpaid bills...he ran up a $100,000 tab in just 13 months....guess that much dope would make anybody gentle.

Did TIME figure out a way to include the Obamster on the cover too?

Must be the same to the Village Voice, since they did a piece on rightbloggers re: Michael Jackson.
