Michael Jackson No "Thriller" at World Music Awards

Michael Jackson made a less than stellar return to the stage at the World Music Awards, it has been reported. The singer had been expected to sing his hit "Thriller," but when he instead sang part of the chorus of "We Are the World," the crowd starting booing the reclusive pop star.

I would make fun, but, I mean, if you don't sing in front of people for ten years, and then expect to just go out there and do it, it stands to reason that you're going to have some problems.

Reuters editorial policy says:

"Reuters news operations are based on the company's Trust Principles which stipulate that the integrity, independence and freedom from bias of Reuters must be upheld at all times."

The Reuters UK employee Mike Collett-White told the world his subjective opinion by

1. a predjudgment in the afternoon BEFORE the world music awards show took place

2. the world wide distribution of a headline which includes a subjective, biased judgement

3. selective choice of biased quotes

Mike Collett-Whites quoted Gareth Grundy, editor of Q music magazine, who called Michael Jackson "not an artist". (He called a person who sold more than 100 million records "not an artist"!).

There is a 3rd article by Collett-White. The title is: "Michael Jackson comeback gig 'a flop', reviews say. The headline is a lie because he was the FIRST who tell the world that it was "no thriller". Collett-White pretends to just quote others but actually HE's the responsible one.

You find on the Reuters website phone numbers and email addresses to complain about the Reuters UK employee Mike Collett-White who has to be neutral according to the editorial policy.

What Reuters presented the world was the OPINION of ONE single person. Hundreds of sources sticked to the biased news and distributed it all over the world (= copy-and-paste-journalism).

No news about tabloid trash queen Paris, maximum 10% of the copied news about other artists, 90% about Michael Jackson. Why this? ... because - like the Mirror titled - "he's bad"?
