A U.S. Congressman has come under fire for publicly attacking Michael Jackson in a rant about the media coverage of the King of Pop's death.
Peter King agreed to be interviewed by a CNN reporter outside a Wantagh, New York British Legion event at the weekend (04Jul09), and when he was asked for his random thoughts about Jackson's death, he held nothing back.
The Long Island Congressman raged, "This low-life, Michael Jackson... is all over the newspaper, television, radio... Let's knock out the psychobabble. He was a pervert, a child molester, he was a paedophile. And to be giving this much coverage to him, day in and day out, what does it say about us as a country?
"I just think we're too politically correct. No one wants to stand up and say, 'We don't need Michael Jackson...' He died, he had some talent. Fine. There's people dying every day."
The outspoken Republican's comments lit up cyberspace when the video of his rage was posted online on Monday (06Jul09).
The Jackson family has refused "to dignify King's statement" with a comment.

I think this guy is a jerk. If you can't say something nice about someone then you shouldn't say anything. we have all done things in our personal lives the only difference is it usually doesn't hit the media ( lucky for us ) He was found innocent !! and personally i really don't think he did it. If he did i really don't think he would have been allowed to keep his own children so you should think about that. and think about his mother, how would you feel if someone said something like that about your child?? we never know what life is going to hold for any of us so keep your mouth shut!!!

Surprisingly this kind of expression comes from a human being. An educated person, a family faher, a son of a mother,a father of a son & a representative of a state in the USA... It always shows the weakness in the mind of politicians. Yes he is! you can think, but he had the greatest ceremony that any member of your family have never had & will neer have. You have shown to the USA population that you are even not able to represnt your own family....
