620 Dead in Iraq this Month - Studio B's Top Story? Michael Jackson's Private's Won't Be Exposed

Reported by Donna - May 26, 2005

Watching Studio B with Shepard Smith day and and day out means that you are deluged with reports on Michael Jackson. Michael Jackson is covered at least twice each day, sometimes three times, in a one hour show.

They talk about it in their opening sequence, then they talk about it again, usually within 5 - 10 minutes of show and they show a banner that announces they will be talking about it again at 3:15 or 3:20. I'm not kidding, they actually put up the time, so you'd better hang around for your Michael Jackson fix.

But today, he was the top story.

Smith spoke with Trace Gallagher on what was happening in the Michael Jackson trial. Trace said that the defense was going to be able to use a video where the accuser spoke to the police. Trace said, however, there was a very important ruling, the judge said that he would not allow a picture to be shown of Michael Jackson's privates.

That took up the first few minutes. They revisited the story at 3:20.

About eight minutes into the show, we found out that so far this month 620 people had been killed in Iraq. Were these Iraqi security, police, civilians or U.S. soldiers? They didn't say, but since the government said it wouldn't report civilian deaths, I would think that the Iraqi Security Forces and police have taken a heavy toll this month.

Comment: Wish I had something better to report, but there was so much fluff on the show today they didn't even have a President Bush photo op (they had a Rumsfeld one where he compared Zarqawi to Hitler in his bunker).

So, I thought I'd let you know what's important to Fox and let you have fun with the thread.
