Also might i mention that of course our soldiers mean alot to us the rest of the world doesn't care. Michael impacted the WHOLE world!
I know what you're saying, but I think the comment is kind of inappropriate when the world is saying goodbye to an incredible man who was more than just a music icon, and saying goodbye right at this moment

one of my very close childhood friends died in a car bomb in iraq a couple of years ago. our town is on the smaller side and we had a HUGE memorial for him, but in no way would I EVER expect CNN to show coverage of it. The world didn't know him, or even know of him. To the world he's another tally on the casualty list.
The world knows/knows of Michael Jackson. Michael Jackson has impacted the world in more ways than people know. The US is the only place were he is remembered for his molestation accusations and i think alot of people are still focused on those. God forbid someone you know/know of and instead of celebrating their life everyone criticizes them for their wrong doings. My dad died suddenly of a heart attack and I'm so thankful that even though him and I had a horrible relationship and he was an alcoholic who beat my mom I focus on the good times we had and so does everyone else who knew him. That's what this is about. What Michael has been doing for 40 years. He set the mark for african american performers. MTV didn't recognize black musicians until him.
This man touched the world and thats why he has this much coverage.
Our soldiers give alot and sacrifice so much but they do that for us, our country. Therefore they just don't have the impact on the world as Michael Jackson. They deserve to be remembered and honored. I don't really view it as Michael being put higher its just that billions want to say goodbye and remember him and in this day and age having a big memorial w/ lots of tv coverage and internet thats how the world is able to participate
