Way Too Much Attention to Jackson Trial
Well another day in Jolly olde. Watching BBC2 this morning I am amazed at how much time they are spending on the Michael Jackson trial. At least every half hour there is an update on what is happening which in the morning in England is absolutely nothing. Most amazing is the admission that pretty much nothing but jury selection is happening for the next month as they go through the initial pool of jurors of about 300 per day. The actual trial is not supposed to start for at least another month. Reports have it that there are over a 1000 journalists in the California town to cover the trial. Personally I think there is not a newsworthy moment associated with this at least until they have a verdict. Weird.
