Jacko’s death and the media

The Michael Jackson memorial tomorrow at the Staples Center in LA may be the biggest media event surrounding the King of Pop’s passing but it likely won’t be the last.  Jackson’s death has sparked a cascade of viewership frenzy on a wide array of media, from newspapers to TV to online to video games.  College of Communication Professor John Carroll, a veteran media watcher, can discuss how much the landscape has chanaged since Elvis’ death in 1977.
