Why is MJ’s Death More Important Than Army Lt. Brian Bradshaw’s? It Isn’t. (VIDEO)

Today on the Glenn Beck show, Judge Napolitano, sitting in for Glenn, brought up this very sentient question: Why is this singer’s death more important than that of our military men and women who give their lives to protect this very country, which Jackson so freely enjoyed? Answer: It’s not more important. And shame on the media for not doing their job.

On June 25th, Army Lt. Brian Bradshaw was killed in Afghanistan by an IED, and his aunt wrote an op-ed piece for the Washington Post asking the “why” of the importance question. Lt. Bradshaw was one of 13 servicemembers who gave their lives for all of us since that date, and they should be equally memorialized.

My nephew, Brian Bradshaw, was killed by an explosive device in Afghanistan on June 25, the same day that Michael Jackson died. Mr. Jackson received days of wall-to-wall coverage in the media. Where was the coverage of my nephew or the other soldiers who died that week? There were several of them, and our family crossed paths with the family of another fallen soldier at Dover Air Force Base, where the bodies come “home.” Only the media in Brian’s hometown and where he was stationed before his deployment covered his death.

Monica Crowley, Mark L. Hill & James T. Harris on MJ’s Media Coverage (VIDEO)

Monica Crowley, sitting in tonight for Bill O’Reilly, discussed the media coverage of Michael Jackson’s death with Dr. Mark Lamont Hill, Temple University Professor, and James T. Harris, host of “The National Conversation” in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Crowley began the segment showing some of the laudatory coverage during the BET Awards last night, most notably by Jamie Foxx. At one point, Foxx declares they’re there to “celebrate this black man,” proclaiming “he belongs to us (black people); we shared him with everybody else.”

Later on in the show, Foxx asks the BET audience to “make some noise” because the ‘media is spreading bad stories about him,’ but he needs the audience to show some love for Michael to over-ride that negative coverage. Crowley also played some red-carpet footage of P. Diddy and Beyonce expressing what a bad rap MJ was getting in the press, and it just went downhill from there (for me, anyway). Diddy tried to declare that there was never any negative press about JFK or Elvis, that MJ was one of the “greatest heroes for us,” stating that “he’s one of the reasons why Barack Obama is president.” (Is this something to brag about?)

Beck’s Hot List for June 29th, 2009 (VIDEO)

Today’s Hot List included the following topics:

  • Harold Koh, recently appointed to be legal advisor to the State Department. Yeah “that” Koh who believes in trans-nationalism.
  • ‘Get a government job, and we’ll wipe out your student loan! Hey, everybody, come on board! The rest of the taxpayers can pick up your tab for ya.’ ;-)

  • Why Michael Jackson’s story is relevant to today’s times, especially when it relates to his acquisition of the Beatles’ music library. Hint: They had to offload it because of their tax bills that tallied up to 90% of their income. SHOCKING! /sarc
  • Obama is ready to hop on the “scold the Hondurans” bandwagon and meddle, compared to his “we shouldn’t meddle in Iran’s elections” mantra. Double-standard? Hmmm… you decide.
  • Janeane Garofalo’s dismissing of the tea-party goers, calling them “straight up racists.” So what now? The folks at the Dallas Tea Party have publicly and overtly invited her to attend their Tea Party so she can come and see for herself that they are NOT a bunch of “tea-bagging rednecks.”

This was a GREAT Hot List, I must say.

Can I Please Ask Everyone a Favor?

SHUT UP ABOUT MICHAEL JACKSON ALREADY, WILL YOU? We have Constitutional crises happening every day, and the freakin’ media can only talk about an aged, drug-addicted pedophile? Jebus Christ, people!!!! I swear to God that when I read somewhere today that the internet was generating more traffic for Michael Jackson’s death than that of the REAL tragedy of 9/11, I almost blew a gasket!

Not This Shit Again!

This is EXACTLY the Entertainment Tonight/American Idol mentality that elected the current Fascist-in-Chief last November. Trust me, folks, if you don’t think so, I am TELLING you there are MORE IMPORTANT THINGS going on right now than the death of a freak-show pop star!

Miller Time on the White House Correspondents’ Dinner & Other Stuff (VIDEO)

Miller Time for Wednesday, May 13th. Here’s a portion of the transcript:

O’REILLY: … All right. White House Correspondents’ Dinner. My man Miller here actually emceed an event for Bush the elder, and you were pretty tame. I mean, you didn’t go after anybody, did you?

MILLER: Oh, I was scared witless. I mean, you know, I was just a kid trying to make it, and it was Bush 41. I thought Wanda Sykes was kind of funny, for a girl. That’s a joke, Wanda. You know it. That’s all she’s doing today is explaining that. It was a joke. And the way I look at Wanda Sykes, man, I thought he was going to bring Reverend Wright in. So Wanda Sykes seems — that seems like a respite from the sturm und drang. I thought he might do Jeremiah down to do the gig. I thought Wanda was probably eager to please. I mean, you’re a black comedienne, and you’ve got a black president. I mean, can you imagine how much she needed to make him approve of her? So he went for it, and it looks like it worked. He was laughing his butt off, especially at the — you know, the…
