    Newspapers reporting MJ's Death

    Banned
    Whatever your opinion of Michael Jackson, everyone recognises that the world of music has changed now that Michael's died.

    I grew up with his music, and being only 22, he's been constant through my life.

    A bit random but I like to collect newspapers for big events in my history. I.E the winning of the 2012 Olympics, and the very next day the 7/7 bombings..two headlines on consecutive days that couldn't be more different.

    So i went out to Tesco this evening, about 10pm and none of their newspapers were reporting Michael Jackson. Not the express, mail, guardian etc. Yet on ebay there are some newspapers, dated to yesterday, photographed and posted on the net.

    Did they do a second printing or something? I'm gutted if so, I'll have to make do with Saturday follow ups which is a bit annoying when I wanted the first papers.

    Can anyone confirm please that todays papers covered the storyline?
    Thanks x

    it was in my local...and the sun mate

    i may still have it downstairs...if you want it?...you will have to cover postage...

    Yes, it was all over the morning papers.

    Did they do a second printing or something?



    Yes they would have done, they print the early editions which go on sale in London about 11pm the day before. So tomorrows (Saturday) paper would have been available at 11pm on Friday.

    That early edition is then sent to the areas furthest from the printers to ensure that by 6am they have a newspaper available. They then do the final edition which is printed during the night and sent everywhere else.

    Not much generally changes between the two editions but obviously when something big happens like yesterday after the first edition is printed they will edit it into the final paper.

    Oh my mistake, I forgot that, even as a music icon, they never played his music after that! Silly me! I apologise wholeheartedly. I didn't have a clue who he was until today. No idea what came over me...

    meh, I wouldnt waste your breath on people like that lol. If they want to start a fight over whether I listened to his music as a child etc then they don't have a lot better to do do they? I've always been a big fan and never thought of him as one of those. I shall miss him.

    Oh my that's so cute! I know it's silly how people are laying claim to him according to how many years they've been listening to his music! In school all the children know his songs-they've passed down through generations, doesn't make them any less of a fan than someone who heard his very first hit (the 'first time around') lol.

    Aww I love it when kids dance MJ dances, they're so funny, but usually pretty darn good-kids are very good at mirroring, especially dancing.

    Yeah my son is autistic and communicates through sound a lot, including music and dance, it tends to be the only time you see him react. He has taken a real shine to MJ lately all his old stuff that is 20+ just goes to show!
    He wanted to do moonwalk and he learnt thriller moves, he is very good at dancing, it's mad how people can suggest music so "old" can not affect younger people. Only last month his escort had to "loose" their MJ albulm as he was wanting it on repeat!

    Lol! Thats so funny, I often have to 'lose' books at school when the kids insist on hearing the same story every day! At least your son will be able to listen to plenty of his music as I have a feeling it will be on every radio station and most tv channels for the next few weeks!

    This may sound like a very sweeping statement, but I love working with children with Autism. I think they have so much to give us, far more than I can hope to offer them. I have learnt so much from working with children with autism, aspergers and downs syndrome, they all have wonderful personalities. It is great that your son has an outlet which you and his school support, he should certainly keep up the dancing-it is good for tiring children out for early bedtimes too!!!

    hahaha, time for bed grandma. don't forget your medicine! x


    Yet another totally out of order attack from you. I have gathered from the various threads and comments that you have made since you, recently, became an HUKD member that you are in training for primary school teaching.
    I would suggest that you ameliorate your brash statements and actually seek to understand what is being said.
    Education is not about brow beating and domination ; it is about communication and illumination.

    I have never had a problem in my field of work with relationships and communication and am extremely used to speaking to those with a childish disposition, although admittedly usually children. I am also not tolerant of bullies, and as you have been following my posts so closely, will notice Starsparkle on the tails of most of my threads with irrelevant, provoking and nuisance comments which I mostly ignore. However in this instance I did not.
    I apologise if my actions offended you Chesso, but as you are not very knowledgeable of the full situation I trust that you shall reserve your judgements in matters which don't concern you.

    Removed yet another silly argument from this thread- guys if you don't get on, keep away from eachother.
