Local Congressman Decries Coverage of "Pervert" Michael Jackson
Here is New York Republican Congressman Peter King telling us what a disgrace it is "this lowlife Michael Jackson" is "all over the newspapers, television, radio... this guy was a pervert... to be giving this much coverage to him day in and day out, what does it say about us as a country?" Lest his constituents think he is criticizing them personally for lapping up MJ coverage, King takes care to blame the media, who have "disgraced themselves," and demands they cover instead our soldiers, policemen, firefighters, etc., though a quick look at the TV listings indicates that these people all have their own series. King has a lot of other YouTube videos, including one in which he says Homeland Security "should be targeting mosques, not veterans" and, of the then-upcoming 2004 Presidential election, "It's all over but the counting, and we'll take care on the counting."
