MJ- Spots Another hater!!!
Read this article. The writer gets called-out on his sh*tty and poor reporting.HEHEHEHEHE!!!
In the days following the self-proclaimed king of pop’s death on June 25 aged 50, reports of prescription-drug abuse have served as eerie reminders of the pharmaceutical cocktails that Presley was taking before he died in 1977.
(As originally reported by Reuters writer Stefan Wermuth from the article: "Fans Overlook Michael Jackson's Dark Side")
Now here are the readers' responses to the article-
I normally have great respect for Reuters, but I am disappointed in your lack of journalistic standards where Michael Jackson is concerned.
Where did the “self-proclaimed king of pop” come from in your “Fans Overlook Michael Jackson’s dark side?? Can Ты offer your readers evidence that Michael did proclaim himself King of Pop (and if Ты can, why didn’t Ты offer it?) or, as I suspect, did Ты just repeat something you’ve heard other people say without doing your own investigation?
When did Ты hear him say he was the king of the pop? It’s the people who loved him which gave him this Название .
R.I.P MIchael Jackson
Jackson never once сказал(-а) или required anyone to call him “King Of Pop”. And even though tabloids speculated that he “forced” MTV to call him that back in 1991, after years passed, MTV higher management denied that. When describing himself, Michael was humble — saying that he is a “singer.”
Paul H. :
He never called himself the King Of Pop, it was at an Award Показать where Liz Taylor called MJ . “The king of pop, rock and soul.” Please stop calling him the “self proclaimed King Of Pop” Michael never came out and сказал(-а) I am the King Of Pop. Liz сказал(-а) it and the Фаны agreed, along with those printing T-Shirts etc, NOT Michael. Give him respect Please.
Michael F. :
Michael Jackson never titled himself the KING of POP! Stop Письмо bull!! Ты are REUTERS not the SUN – the tabloid! First find the facts then write the truth!!!
He has never been a self-proclaimed king of pop.Every one knows that.Shame on Ты that Ты write like this instead of Показ some respect to him.Shame on you, shame on you.
Now here is the response to the readers' Комментарии by Stefan Wermuth from Reuters News (writer of the original article):
The e-mails streamed in about this one. There were reports in 1991 that the TV outlets that got the rights to premiere his “Black или White” had to refer to him as “the King of Pop” as part of the deal, which appears to be where we got the “self-proclaimed” angle. I’m not aware that anybody has a clip of Jackson actually calling himself that, which means we should take care in using that description(self-proclaimed).
This is my Комментарий to Mr. Stefan Wermuth:
If Ты are NOT "aware"(didn't find a clip of MJ actually "proclaiming" himself the KING of Pop)then Ты shouldn't have reported that he "self-proclaimed" himself the KING of POP. Далее time do better facts checking или better yet DON'T Сообщить it if Ты DON'T have proof. This is SALACIOUS, LAZY, and POOR reporting.
Remember guys, Michael сказал(-а) don't beLIEve everything that Ты read. MOST of it is just LIES!!! Thanks for reading.
MJ- Fan Proclaimed "KING of Pop"
