Michael Jackson in a category all his own

16 Jun

I was rather disturbed by one of the navigation options listed in the sidebar of The Times website.  Apparently, their world news coverage is divided into six categories: The Pope, Iraq, America, Michael Jackson, Europe, and the Middle East.  Was the story that important that it warranted a section of news coverage equal to that of all the rest of the news from US combined?  Was the story equal to the ongoing disaster of our ill-planned invasion of Iraq?  All I can say is that The Times, a sister publication to our own Jacko-obsessed Fox News, really needs to think about their editorial priorities a little.
