Peter King: Jackson Coverage an "Orgy of Glorification"

by at . Comments

U.S. Congressman Peter King, who railed against Michael Jackson over the weekend, calling him a pedophile and child molester, isn't done yet.

In fact, the Long Island Republican apparently has much more to say about the late music star, of whom he is not a huge fan, to put it mildly.

After criticizing society for revering MJ's legacy and not paying tribute to our troops, police and firefighters (as if the two are in any way mutually exclusive), Peter King described the media coverage of Jackson "an orgy of glorification."

King swears he won't speak out against Jackson today - out of respect for the star's memorial service - but he told New York's CBS 2 last night:

"Yes, he did violate young boys. He did put them in terribly inappropriate positions. And that's a terrible signal to be sending out to society that we are condoning that type of behavior, and you are condoning when you give him this kind of regal coverage, with millions of people fighting to get to his memorial. This is just wrong."

Is Peter King going too far?

You know the way I was raised,if you couldn't say anything nice then don't say anything at all.That's the way that guy feel's and that's his right as a human,but to be a congressman,well he needs to be more dignified and keep it to himself.Let's remember that Michael was found NOT GUILTY,so leave it alone.Michael is gone and get over yourself.People will always love MJ no matter what.

Ummm he was declared "not guilty" because theres no such thing as being declared innocent in a court of law. He was declared not guilty because all 12 jurors deliberated and found him not guilty. Had they not all agreed he was not guilty it would have been declared a hung jury. 12 jurors deliberated all evidence for months and came to that conclusion. There are 4 outcomes in a trial. Guilty, Not Guilty, Hung Jury, and Mistrial. No such thing as being declared innocent. Please get your facts straight thankyou.

Michael is remembered because of the impact he made across the world. Get that? Across the world. When he died, it was not only Americans that mourned for him but the whole world as he changed the face of entertainment. And whether you like it or not, entertainment is a big part of our lives. He is mourned grandiosely because he is a global celebrity.That funeral is also for the people of the whole world to appreciate and take part with. Geessh.So many Americans have thick skulls!Not surprising since they elected one themselves (referring to Peter King).

i think ELaine is you are really concerned about the seven people who died why not take it up as your responsibility to create awareness. the media will follow what has been brought up to them so if you shut your pie hole and trekked down to the media houses may someone could listen to you instead of bad mouthing other people. its a shame that people like you still exist.and besides wat happened to your so called america that said innocent till proven guilty who are you guys to point fingers. people like you hide under the face of the net . michael fought for his interest so shut your mouth and go out and fight for the soldiers.

I think the media gone nuts over such a person who live life as a fagot, child molester. Hell freeze over if I glorify a child molester. What about our boys in the middle east. During this michael jackson media hugging charade, 7 of our boys died in the middle east. o no, not one fuking media outlet dare acknowledge it. But for some reason, the media glorifies a perverted child molester.....this country has gone to hell in a hand basket.
