Rep. Pete King Slams Media Coverage of ‘Pedophile’ Jackson

Jul 6, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Outspoken Rep. Pete King, (R-N.Y.) said Sunday in a video posted on YouTube that the media had “disgraced itself” with excessive Michael Jackson coverage in recent days, Newsday says.

Standing outside an American Legion Hall on Long Island, King said: “Let’s knock out the psychobabble. He was a pervert, a child molester, he was a pedophile. And to be giving this much coverage to him, day in and day out, what does it say about us as a country?”

  1. It’s a shame people like this are even considered “leaders in our country.” Regardless of your personal opinion Congressman (which have no facts to support them), have the decency to keep your comments to yourself while his family is mourning. hello he was accused not convicted. Michael Jackson and his family deserve that respect. i don’t belive michael is any of that i believe he was just a famous and talented guy that someone just wanted money off of him by telling a lie. i guess it is hard to belive there are nice people in this world. i belive pete just wanted publicity. michael seemed like he was a sweet and really nice person who had hard times in his life like everyone else. try not to look at the bad about a person and focus on the good. when people wach the news do you look for something good or bad?

  2. It says that he is an idiot for not letting people grieve the way they want too. if you donlt like Mj then thats fine, some people dont, but there are tons that do and since we live in a FREE contry it is not up to you to tell others what and or how they should feel. The man made great musicm and that is without a doubt, if you cant give him praise on that, then is it You that is not an American.

  3. Peter has a right to his own opinion, but I wish he would of had the courage to speak up when Michael was alive.Mr. King never created anything but fat cells around his waist to match his big mouth, and jeely fish spine.

  4. Hmmm. Wasn’t OJ accused and not convicted? Guess that means he didn’t do anything wrong either.
    Nice logic Kitty. sheesh.
