Reader reaction to Reuters news
Fans overlook Michael Jackson’s dark side
In the days following the self-proclaimed king of pop’s death on June 25 aged 50, reports of prescription-drug abuse have served as eerie reminders of the pharmaceutical cocktails that Presley was taking before he died in 1977.
I normally have great respect for Reuters, but I am disappointed in your lack of journalistic standards where Michael Jackson is concerned.
Where did the “self-proclaimed king of pop” come from in your “Fans Overlook Michael Jackson’s dark side??
Can you offer your readers evidence that Michael did proclaim himself King of Pop (and if you can, why didn’t you offer it?) or, as I suspect, did you just repeat something you’ve heard other people say without doing your own investigation?
