Do not underestimate the utility of the broadcast media in this culture.... they do more to form opinions and ultimately voter preferences than anything else, and politicians are acutely aware of this. I know what I have said is a bit much to swallow, but whoever controls the media, or more importantly the direction the media takes, ultimately controls minds....
According to your THEORY, the far right wing killed Michael Jackson in order to divert the attention of the American people from a governor who had an extra-martial affair to Michael Jackson's death.
Certainly, we need a diversion from the Governor having an affair in the form of a murder of a POP icon, because, otherwise, we just wouldn't be able to cope with his immorality.
Does that sound logical?
