I was watching the live coverage from CNN.com with Facebook connect. It was great stuff technically and worked flawlessly over here in India. They had multiple live streams too. Chasing the fscking coffin by helicopter... I played around with the video and the chat for a while and closed my browser window afterwards. It was a shiny new toy to play with and good to hear comments from people all over the globe.

With regard to the media covering a memorial service and making it into a freaking circus show -- no comments. They have viewers watching it, hence the content. Blame the viewers and not the media companies.

For the record, I personally am fed up with the media and voted no for this poll. MJ's death is not NEWS anymore, it is HISTORY. (Couldn't resist that one!)

As a suggestion, if you are a celeb, make sure you mention in your will that you be cremated instead of being buried. 3rd fscking autopsy request? Burying that corpse without a brain because they want to cut it open for testing after it solidifies some more? Selling lottery tickets for people to attending his memorial service? Woo! Humanity has hit a new low.

Let it be Mj was definitely a very popular icon
youtube or tv or other tv channels ... HGTV and the discovery channel don't have much mj stuff on it

So a third of poll respondents wanted to see more MJ news? I hope people didn't understand the question, because with four 24/7 news channels saturation bombing the topic, how much more is necessary to turn people off? Do viewers understand that stuff happens in the world that's not about a dead performer?

Telling people to not watch it is all well and good, but I stay away from the "news" and even then, I still hear too much about it.
