To CNN to stop calling Michael Jackson "Wacko Jacko" sign now

CNN it's not the only media outlet that calls Michael Jackson "Jacko" Or "Wacko." I feel they are suppose to be a serious outlet of information. When they call a human being names, the seriousnes goes out the window. I feel if CNN starts calling Michael Jackson by his name, others will follow. I mean CNN calls Osama Bin Landen by his name, now that's America. It's disrespectful, and I am offended by it. R. Kelly doesn't get call names, neither does Woody Allen, Elvis, Rob Lowe...all those folks were either convicted, alleged, or charged or raping a child. Michael Jackson was born Michael Jackson and CNN should call him just that.

    Of course people need to call Michael Jackson by his name. He was born with that name and that will always be his name.

    It's very sad but true, that media outlets such as CNN feel the need to mispronounce or botch the names of black superstars who happen to have some sort of drama surrounding them. I remember clearly how CNN in particular would pronounce Tupac Shakur as TU

    Any newstation, which decides to hop onto the bandwagon to abuse Michael Jackson in order to lynch off him, and gain some sort of sick profit is disgusting to me. Everyone I know, my family, and myself will never waste time watching, or EVER trusting any

    Please use Michael Jackson's real name. You call him "Wacko Jacko" because YOU kind of people are the ones trying to find every little reason to make him fit into the name as "Wacko Jacko." Well, it rhymes nice, but I disagree with the person you are usin

    CNN has long lost its credibility, so I dont expect them to give a $#%! about this.. but I am with this petition in spirit. Michael deserves basic human courtesy at LEAST.

    Mr. Jackson's given birth name is Michael J. Jackson not "Wacko Jacko" and labeling him this term is nothing more than just pure hate and disrespect towards Mr. Jackson. Therefore, continuing to label Mr. Jackson as "Wacko Jacko" is equal to dehumanizing
