Stations in Canada, Australia, New Zealand banning Jackson songs

I'm hoping this snowballs into an avalanche...I believe Jacko was a certified Sicko - - https://www.cnbc.com/2019/03/07/michael-jackson-songs-banned-from-radio-after-tv-program-alleges-abuse.html

What confounds me about this, is why are radio stations dumping Jackson music now?  Because of the new damning documentary?  Anybody who has paid even the slightest attention has known Jackson was a sick, child sex predator for at least 10 years.  A little late to be dumping his catalogue now, a decade or more later.

Can't remember the last time I knowingly played a Michael Jackson song.  I agree with Charlie.  He should have been removed from any kind of beneficial 'spot' a LONG time ago.  People who molest children need to experience what it's like to be underneath an honest to goodness steam-roller.  It doesn't matter would, otherwise, seem to be the prevailing attitude.  No one should be abused.  Children least of all.

Is the Catholic church still open?


"I'll kick your ass down Yonge Street"... CFTR's Robert Holiday circa 1979...

Maybe it's time to shut down everything and everyone, and I meaning EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE, with the slightest whiff of scandal. Then, someone, please turn the lights off on the way out!

It's only March, but I doubt this will all go away by October. 
I can't even imagine a Halloween without Michael Jackson's Thriller on the radio!!

Boom, along with stations owned by Rogers, Corus and Bell, have apparently made no decision yet on the Jackson issue. 

Deciding whether to drop King of Pop's music a 'delicate situation' for radio network

Actually, I dont mind the fact that his songs might be banned from the radio...why?  Because they are actually overplayed.   I dont know how many more times I can hear Billie Jean....however not hearing Thriller come Halloween will be a tough thing for radio.

"Slightest whiff of scandal?"  Scandal?  Child abuse isn't "scandal" Saul.  It's one of the worst crimes out there.  Punishable by death as far as I'm concerned.  And when they go to jail... ... ...

MJ is dead. He had what would look like a crazy, horrible childhood. He seemed seriously, horribly messed up. Not to forgive actual deeds and allegations (he's dead and can't defend himself anymore). But it seems asinine to purge the record of his music, pretend it didn't exist.
