and tell me or post the link here (cos I can't do it) if that Michael Jackson picture is real. If it is what a sick thing to show and I am shocked at the magazine and won't be buying!

I believe it is real. It's disgusting that they actually bought the photo's in the first place. I saw it in Smiths yesterday.
I don't actually read those sort of mags and that's cemented my reasons why.

I am truly shocked that they would publish that.

All I can see is photo's from 48hrs before he died. I don't see a problem with that?

This one?

I saw it in WH Smith today and couldn't quite believe it, tbh.

apparently it is real and they paid a lot of money. I won't be buying it either. The Jade goody tribute issue before she'd actually died was bad enough!

Ok - didn't see that one.

Highly inappropriate anywhere in the mag let alone thrusting it in everyones faces onthe front cover.

shock

What kind of people pay money to see that?

IkeaHighchair Tue 30-Jun-09 22:02:06

My point is that you don't actually have to pay any money to have it thrust in your face - given that it is on the fornt cover.

I don't want to see it....and I certainly don't want DDs to see it.

wannaBe Tue 30-Jun-09 22:04:57

that's very true. But if there weren't people paying money to read the rest of the shite that is printed within, then it wouldn't exist and it wouldn't be being thrust upon those of us who have no wish to see it.

precisely hmm

Disgraceful. How can they say it is a 'tribute' issue when clearly they are showing a really inappropriate photo that MJ (I would hazard a guess) would never have wanted shown. Surely a tribute issue should contain things that refer to a persons best moments, memories of good times and why they will be missed, rather than this sensational tripe that passes off as news.

Grrr.

As MJ is going to have an open casket - i think i can guess what next week's cover will be.

I am utterly shocked at the cover, OK have hit an all time low. I for one will be writing a letter of complaint to teh Editor.

Is there anyone else that we can complain to? Who oversees standards in the press? Press Complaints Commission?
