6/27/09 UPDATE: The above item was featured on CNN today — http://www.cnn.com/2009/SHOWBIZ/Music/06/27/michael.jackson.prisoners.thriller/index.html — which only goes to show, the difference between a blogger who searches the word “Thriller” on YouTube and posts the first thing he sees, versus a paid journalist who does the same thing, is the 36 hours it takes to arrange an overseas telephone interview and check up on some facts.
Still glad I’m not a journalist.
