Prosecutors Rip Media Coverage

Prosecutors in Michael Jackson case rip media coverage, back gag order 

Santa Barbara County prosecutors have asked the California Supreme Court to uphold a gag order in the Michael Jackson child molestation case. They contend the gag order is important to maintain an untainted pool of potential jurors.

They noted that the Jackson case has generated intense public interest and is a constant focus of the tabloid and mainstream media. The prosecutors said they were submitting the letter to the court in response to a request from news organizations to lift the gag order. That order bars anyone connected to the case from talking about it.

The Supreme Court is deciding whether to hear the case and has asked both sides to submit arguments by Friday.
