Andrew Breitbart the founder of the news Web site breitbart.com and co-author of "Hollywood Interrupted: Insanity Chic in Babylon - the Case Against Celebrity." has written a column that compares media coverage of Edward Kennedy and Michael Jackson. It is well written and so true! A few quotes:
With the deaths of Sen. Edward M. Kennedy and Michael Jackson, the summer of '09 marked the merciful ends to Camelot and Neverland, iconic American fairy tales whose story lines should have come to merciful ends long ago when their charismatic protagonists took dark and irredeemable turns.
My condolences go to the Kennedy and Jackson families, who should not be stained by the sins of their kin.
The supporters of Mr. Kennedy, and to a lesser degree Mr. Jackson, elevate and promote "social justice" and "economic justice" as the highest human goals. Upon the deaths of Mr. Jackson and Mr. Kennedy, the media continue to erase their ugly backgrounds hoping their eternal celebrity can serve these collective ideals.
But the rubes - those of us skeptical of moral relativism, media manipulation and the cult of celebrity - prefer "justice justice."
Only when the "elite" among us begin to see things like us - and not in the unrealistic fairy tales crafted by our liberal betters - will Americans begin to live happily ever after.
