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?

He is going too far and there is nothing true about what he is saying! Michael was proven innocent of any wrong doing by a jury and by psychological examination. It was well known that these people were out for his money and in the most recent case, the people were continuous liars and the mother was a scam artist. I think it is disguisting that people would make these comments about someone who was proven not guilty, even after their death. Michael was an outstanding individual and deserves respect for all the good he was and did.
