Michael Jackson Will Only Die Once

A shocking assertion from an MSNBC reporter as news broke of Michael Jackson's death last week.


Saw this bit on The Daily Show Tuesday night, as Jon Stewart awesomely made fun of the media for being the media.

In case you think that was somehow doctored, here you go.

Obviously, there are tabloids that fundamentally disagree with this notion, and they'll prove that in the future. It shouldn't be too long before some random publication accuses Jackson of faking his own death.

We must be horribly short on people who are willing to take jobs working as television reporters. It's the only way to explain the sometimes self-serving and more often completely incompetent nature of today's reporters.
