I'm also intrigued about the Ofcom rules* that purportedly state that you can't say anything negative about a passed celebrity 24 hours after his death. So, what does this mean? That bang on 11pm (or whenever), the insults are going to start rolling in? Is this a form of censorship? Because it's reporting like that which ensures that people *aren't* honest, doesn't it? So have Ofcom overstepped their position in the world?
*Apparently more of a guideline.
This entire situation is one I've watched keenly-- I've recently become more and more aware of how the media outlets report these events, and with that knowledge I realised how... how disgusting everyone is. The BBC, for instance, wheeled out the same specialists, called the same old people, and kept repeating the same two segments last night, as they scrambled for the death-porn that was the footage of the ambulance leaving Jackson's residence.
The world is going to shit.
