Revolution Over

It looks like Michael Jackson's death has more or less ended the whole Iranian revolution thing. Yeah, there were other factors, such as the Iranian government's crackdown on dissidents, but the MJ saga pushed it off the front page pretty quickly, meaning that the mullahs could get away with murder. (Literally, in some cases). I never thought the revolutionaries had much of chance, but it's sad to see it end.

A couple of the other blogs (Joe's, DD's) say MJ has gotten way too much coverage already. I see their point but don't agree. There's 365 days in a year, if the msm wants to give one subject an intensive treatment over the course of 2 or 3 days that's still a drop in the bucket, do the math, that still leaves 362 days to cover other news and let's face it, MJ was a far more interesting story at least for many people than many of the other topics deemed newsworthy. NOW having said that if the msm still gives MJ massive treatment after those 3 or so days that's just masturbation.

The Iranian unrest, IMO, is driven by youth and modern secularism. It may be suppressed for now, but is likely to continue to grow. (Likely be centuries before we see that in Afghanistan)

Interesting.
.. I agree -- this is waaaaaaay too much coverage of Michael Jackson.
btw, who are Joe and DD?
T\But think of it this way, this is taking Obama's Health Plan nonsense out of the limelight.

My Thoughts - where have you been? It's not about Obama's Health Care, do you know the the House passed Cap & Trade? We cannot let this pass the Senate, but it probably will.

I am hoping that those protestors in Iran aren't done yet, maybe they lost the battle but not the war.

Joe is the Average American and DD has "Our World As We See It". I would agree NOW that there's way too much coverage but where does John Stossel get off because his Canadian health-care special on 20/20 was preempted for a MJ special on the very next day after the man passed? When big news events are fresh the coverage really doesn't bother me but it's time for the msm to move on to other things.
