Interestingly, after the battering some of the Media Guardian stories took in the user comments yesterday, it looks like The Guardian had opted not to lead with a BBC story.

Maybe tomorrow The Independent can repeat their 'here is the news you may have missed' front page from when Prince Charles announced he was marrying Camilla.

I really don't care about those who turned a deaf ear to Micheal Jackson's death news. I don't wanna be rude but one must pay deep respect to everybody when they pass away !

I'm not saying sake of that I'm junky about Micheal Jackson but being a human being and a true music lover.

When I came to know about his death news and on the same night, I couldn't stop my tears to come out.

I felt ashamed on myself that being a fan of him I couldn't do anything for him whereas he was suffering with some problems............
