6:02 PM// Jackson is...nobody cares!

So I made the unrecoverable error of turning on the local news this evening around 5ish, just in time to catch the Michael Jackson verdict. Hey, great, so he's not guilty. Does anyone care? I mean, I know the hundreds of protestors/supporters gathered outside the courthouse (dont't these people have jobs, or other famial responsibilites?) care, but fanatics aside, why did every major network on the air have to interrupt normal programming to bring me the Jackson verdict? And then do an "around the world in 30 seconds" news bit. Devoting ten minutes to the reading of the verdict and 15 minutes for discussion of implications afterward was certainly a dignified use of the powerful pulpit from which news corporations bellow.
