  WTF?!
 
What is wrong with the media? Two Islamist suicidal murderers packed with explosives kill dozens of people in Turkey in an attack much like the Oklahoma City bombing, with images eerily resembling those of 9/11, and all they can report on is MICHAEL JACKSON?! Literally, it was the top story on every freakin' news channel. Are they telling Americans that his meaningless life is more newsworthy than this:

A victim is helped in front of the HSBC Bank in Istanbul November 20, 2003. Shattered bodies and rubble were strewn across the streets of Turkey's commercial capital Istanbul as the second pair of bombs in less than a week sent the city into a state of shock.

Explosions hit the Turkish headquarters of the London-based HSBC bank and the British consulate, killing at least 25 people and wounding about 400, health officials said. The blasts came days after the city was hit by two synagogue bombings. (AP Photo/Cihan)

As long as Americans are overly concerned about Kobe Bryant, Michael Jackson, Laci Peterson, and are not at all concerned about the Islamist threat, we're in big trouble. And as long as people blame Bush and Blair for horrific terrorist acts like those yesterday, instead of placing the blame where it belongs, we'll never rid ourselves of the real cause. Yesterday was a sad, sad day.
