It`s not ironic at all. One is about MJ, the other one is about reporting on MJ. Two entirely different things. And if the media doesn`t analyse itself, who will?

I stopped reading after they started throwing lots and lots of numbers at me. @_@

But yes, MJ died. Yes, there was way more coverage than anything else I`ve seen since 9/11. Excessive? Probably.

Who is Yahoo paying to write their articles?

There were over 30 numbers in that article.
So many dates, ages and percentages.

Seriously, that was one of the basic no-no`s I learned in my first Journalism class.

I don`t really see what`s ironic about the article (it`s not an article about Michael Jackson but about the news coverage).
