HOW IS THIS EVEN CONTROVERSIAL?:

Congressman blasts Jackson, media (Foon Rhee, July 6, 2009, Washington Post)

Representative Peter King might have spoken for some of his constituents sick and tired of wall-to-wall coverage of Michael Jackson's death.

But the New York congressman, who is thinking about running for the US Senate, certainly didn't mince any words -- and that is drawing quite a bit of attention itself.

In a video shot Sunday outside an American Legion hall in his district and then posted on YouTube, King railed against all the attention given to Jackson -- a "lowlife," he called him -- in contrast to the real heroes: members of the military, police officers, firefighters, and teachers.

"This guy was a pervert," King says. "He was a child molester. He was a pedophile. And to be giving this much coverage to him, day in and day out, what does it say about us as a country?"


...except for those who want to mainstream pedophilia?
