Danielle ~ what the fruitsnacks!™: Exactly, witt! And did you see the THS (true hollywood story) that aired on e! …90% of the thing focused on the negative, and then at the end, with like 5 minutes left…they added that he died, and that he leaves behind 40 years of great music. I was like, wtf was that??? With all the trash that E! airs, I cant even be surprised.

Wow, this is going to be

Wow, this is going to be huge. The coverage started before 12:30pm. I think it is sad that we waited so long to give Michael his long, overdue props as the icon, king of pop and legend he is and forever will be. RIP Mike and hopefully the man can finally rest in peace once he is buried and the negativity of the media is gone.

IN THE ORIGINAL BROADCAST...HIS DEATH WAS NOT INCLUDED.
