Michael Jackson was a pervert

This is what Pete King, a New York Congressman, has said about the King of Pop after having enough of media coverage given to Michael Jackson.

"Hi, this is Congressman Pete King. Yesterday I marched in two Fourth of July parades in Wantagh and Massapequa Park. Today I was taking a walk through Wantagh here at the American Legion hall, fire house down the street, a fire memorial a few blocks from here. It really reminded me of the great men and women who have sacrificed so much for our country. People fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan, cops, firefighters, teachers, none of whom really get much credit. Yet for the last, I don’t know how long now, this lowlife, Michael Jackson, his name, his face, his picture is all over the newspapers and television, radio, it’s all we hear about is Michael Jackson. Let’s knock out the psychobabble. He was a pervert, a child molester, he was a pedophile. And to be giving this much coverage to him, day in and day out, what does it say about us as a country? I just think we’re too politically correct. No one wants to stand up and say we don’t need Michael Jackson. He died, he had some talent, fine. There’s men and women dying every day in Afghanistan. Let’s give them the credit they deserve. I really think the media has disgraced itself. I think that too many people in public life have made fools out of themselves by talking about Michael Jackson as if he’s some kind of hero. There’s nothing good about this guy. He may have been a good singer, he did some dancing. Bottom line is, would you let your child or grandchild be in the same room with Michael Jackson? What are we glorifying him for? So anyway, lets take some time out to really look to the people who do make us a great country. The men and women of the armed forces, police, firefighters, teachers who work in really rough neighborhoods. People who volunteer with dying cancer patients, people who work in aids clinics. They’re the ones we should be glorifying, not some pervert like Michael Jackson."

This video has not gone too well the die-hard MJ's fans and in fact the speech is bit too harsh especially now that King of Pop is no more, but still I think media across the globe operates in the same fashion. Celebrity news is the number one priority across the globe for all media channel and in doing that they just forget that there are other more important things also to be given adequate coverage and not only talking about some celebrities. Give your honest reviews about this sensational speech given by a Congressman against perhaps the most popular Pop star the world will ever see particularly after his death.
