Can I just say something? I am watching FOX looking for any Iran coverage and Geraldo Rivera is hosting "an investigative hour" on the suspicious death of Michael Jackson. I kid you not.
The man was a hopeless drug addict for years and died at 108 pounds. Jackson admitted his drug abuse problem on the stand back in 2003. Friends thought he would be dead in six months, so heavy was his addiction to painkillers, but Geraldo is pointing to foul play.
What irks me is that Rivera is suggesting that Jackson may very well have been murdered. There was a motive to murder him, according to Rivera. Yes, those greedy folks behind Michael's big comeback in England could recover their losses if Jackson was murdered and the murder was made to look accidental. And who are those "goons" with whom Michael surrounded himself?, Rivera accuses. And then goes on to suggest, "he [Jackson] dies accidentally, you get all your money back."
Now why does this irk me (apart from the obvious idiocy and industry this filth will give life to)?
Because a year ago I broke an explosive story when I ran an exclusive analysis from a leading digital forensic examination scientist, meticulously documenting that the certification of live birth that Obama released to his website, Fight the Smears.com, was a "horrible forgery".

What it meant is anyone's guess. I welcomed peer review. No one would touch it. Needless to say, a year later so many questions remain unanswered and millions of Americans want to know, but FOX has never touched the subject matter. Never. Not a word.
But they will allow some second rate assclown to start a dangerous rumor with scurrilous accusations based on nothing but the lure of sensationalism and ratings. That's OK?
They won't cover Iran because they are so few "journalists" in Iran and "so many restrictions, it is difficult to get information". As if the actual demonstrators getting beaten, arrested, and killed aren't legit sources.
FOX has lost it.
