"Madison Capital Times Rips National Media For Trial Coverage
Anyone paying attention to national media might think the biggest trial in the nation this week was for a broken-down pop star. So today, The Capital Times of Madison, Wisc., lambasted national media for focusing on the Michael Jackson trial and largely ignoring the Edgar Ray Killen trial.
Here's an excerpt:
It is precisely because the voting rights struggle continues that the trial of Edgar Ray Killen is not a footnote to history. It is a vital reminder that we are barely a generation away from the days when Americans were killed for registering people to vote, and that there is still work to be done before all barriers to voting rights are removed.
When will that fight be won? Perhaps when the media pay as much attention to the trial of an old bigot in Mississippi as they do to the trial of a pop star in California.

Oh, how true. I'm so disgusted with the national media over the stupid coverage of Jackson. How about you?
