Does WMC-TV5 know the meaning of the word "local"? A recent story about Michael Jackson posted on the station's Web site by reporter Stephanie Rodriguez claimed, "Local fans give thoughts on the plight of the 'King of Pop.'" So where did the news crew go to gather all this "lo =cal" insight? They went to that great gather ng place of lifelong Memphians -- Graceland. All three respon ents, identified as "Memphis tourists," agreed that the molestation charges leveled against Jackson aren't exactly a big surprise. SURPRISE!
