Michael Jackson vs. Tsunami Coverage
Jeff Jarvis is worried that the impending Michael Jackson trial will knock the Tsunami coverage off the front page. He's dreading the cable tv coverage and predicts blog coverage won't be that heavy. [link via Instapundit.]
Blog coverage of high profile criminal trials has never been that heavy. I think there was more for Kobe Bryant than for Scott Peterson, but still, I don't think the blog reading audience is the same as the cable tv viewing audience.
Michael Jackson trial coverage will start out wall-to-wall on cable news, but whether it stays that way will depend on ratings.
Jarvis is correct that if the Jackson case takes off, it could knock things like the Tsunami crisis off the front page. Did anyone notice this morning that the news of the reversal of Andrea Yates' conviction was the lead story above the articles on the confirmation hearing of Alberto Gonzales?
