Robertson Quoted on Michael Jackson

Linda Robertson, professor of rhetoric, was quoted in the St. Petersburg (Fla.) Times story ” What were you thinking? What ARE you thinking?” an open letter to Michael Jackson after the TV specials on him. “The news media at this moment does not want us paying attention (to) . . . our buildup to a war with Iraq,” said Robertson. “This (Jackson coverage) gets high ratings, so of course it inspires copycat coverage. But it's absolutely irresponsible journalism to condemn by innuendo and inference.”
