Michael Jackson and the Clueless Media

On a day where there's non-stop coverage of the Michael Jackson memorial everywhere you may turn, I found a silver lining to all of it. The American People are not as enthralled with Jackson as the media seems to think.

In the non-scientific poll on cnn.com at the time of this writing (11:50am) the question posed is this:

How will you watch coverage of Michael Jackson memorial?

The fascinating fact is that an overwhelming majority will not be watching coverage of the memorial.

The results are:

TV 13% 18895
Web 10% 14792
Not watching 78% 117370

Total Votes: 151057

While this is not a scientific poll, it once again shows us all how disconnected the media really is from reality. No surprises there.
