Breaking: Pop Star Michael Jackson Dead at 50

michaeljacksonBreaking News… Pop star Michael Jackson has died. He was 50 years old.

The NY Times sent out a news alert a short time ago that he had been rushed to the hospital. Shortly after that I recieved a call from a friend who said that WBCN in Boston was already stating him dead.

MSNBC is now reporting that the LA Times reports Jackson has been pronounced dead. NBC has now confirmed.

TMZ also broke the news early on that Jackson had passed away.

Michael suffered a cardiac arrest earlier this afternoon at his Holmby Hills home and paramedics were unable to revive him. We’re told when paramedics arrived Jackson had no pulse and they never got a pulse back.

A source tells us Jackson was dead when paramedics arrived. A cardiologist at UCLA tells TMZ Jackson died of cardiac arrest.

MSNBC has a slide show of Jackson’s career (already). Sad newsVery sad news. I liked Jackson’s music years ago…

Farah Fawcett also died today. More on both later.

UPDATE: There’s more at Bohemian Women.

    There’s only one legitimate place I’ve found to see the autopsy video, it’s over at *** LINK REMOVED BY MODERATOR*** and the autopsy report itself is over at *** LINK REMOVED BY MODERATOR*** for download

    They make you do a little survey but after that it works fine
