Poll: 2 out of 3 Americans tired of Jackson coverage

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Nearly two in three Americans say news organizations have given too much coverage to the death of Michael Jackson, but half say the media have struck the right balance between covering his personal life and musical career.

In a Pew Research Center poll, 64 percent of those surveyed said Jackson's death last week in Los Angeles has received too much coverage, 29 percent said the story received the right amount and 3 percent said the story got too little attention.

The independent public opinion research group's poll shows that 30 percent followed the story very closely, though that number jumped to 80 percent among blacks.

Should President Obama have issued a formal public statement when Michael Jackson died?
