Michael Jackson Dominates World Papers, Media
Michael Jackson dominated nearly every newspaper, website, television station and several other forms of media outlets Thursday into Friday.
Jackson's imprint on pop culture, not just through music but as a humanitarian and visionary, reached the cover of newspapers in Germany, Jamaica, the UK, and Taiwan with heartfelt headlines.
According to sources close to this weekend's BET Awards, a special tribute is being put together to honor Michael Jackson. Like BET, networks including MTV, VH1 and Fox are moving forward with plans to air special programming.
The King of Pop, as previously reported, is likely to top next week's album chart and is already selling out at traditional and digital retailers.
