At CNN, online and on the boob tube, Jackson was quoted while standing by Schiavo's parents as saying, "a consistent moral and ethical position would extend a feeding tube to all who are confronted with starvation -- to demand public, government policy to feed the hungry."

Plus CNN had the words on screen which reinforced it.

This is certainly a bass-ackwards way of raising this. I've seen the same parallel raised on progressive websites, and it's good he got it out there. But to do so alongside the maniacal fundamentalists leading the protests? Sheesh!
