Michael Jackson: I'm just saying...

I'm watching the entire week's news devolve into nothing but MJ hagiography and wondering:

If someone of greater musical significance and lesser dancing ability died, would there be less hype?

If someone of comparable dance chops and musical significance died, but with lesser tabloid marketability, would there be less hype?

Heaven forbid if George Clinton/Neil Young/Quincy Jones/Prince were suddenly gone, but if it were the case I don't think we'd be seeing non-stop coverage.
