This is surreal. First Ed McMahon, then Farrah Fawcett, now Michael Jackson.

I can't believe it.

But all they're reporting is that other sites (namely TMZ) have reported him dead, along with the incontrovertible fact that he's been hospitalized after cardiac arrest.

He's not necessarily dead yet, so let's not jump to conclusions until there's a harder news source.

CNN is covering it right now, but they haven't confirmed anything yet. All they are saying is he's been hospitalized.

Same with the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, MSNBC, and Fox.

Holy S**t. When I first read this it caught me off guard.

I hope he makes it. Despite all his... distractions, he will always be the King of Pop.

Wow. After all the times I laughed when Conan parodied him on his show...

I wish he was still alive.

I'm partially not surprised, and partially really shocked.. he was only 50, but he also had one of the most bizzare lifestyles known to man...
