Explosive Charles Thomson Article Gets It Right

One of the Most Shameful Episodes In Journalistic History

Charles Thomson, a respected journalist at the widely credited Huffington Post, has recently come out with an amazing article highlighting the media’s hugest blunder in its history. Previously released on June 13, the five-year mark of Michael Jackson’s acquittal, the article puts the media on blast and fully recognizes “the darkest day in journalistic history.”

Here is an excerpt from that article:

“It was five years ago today that twelve jurors unanimously acquitted Michael Jackson on various charges of child molestation, conspiracy and providing alcohol to a minor. It is difficult to know how history will remember the Michael Jackson trial. Perhaps as the epitome of western celebrity obsession. Perhaps as a 21st century lynching. Personally, I think it will be remembered as one of the most shameful episodes in journalistic history.”
