Another small victory: MJ Fans take on Reuters

Earlier today, Reuters published an article on the Murray case, using the "Jacko" moniker in their headlines.

Thanks to fans quick action, the headline has now been corrected, mere hours after it was first published.

But keep in mind, unlike USA Today and CBS News, which are mostly read in North America, Reuters, one of the largest news agencies in the world, sell their stories to other news outlets around the globe.

The time it took Reuters to change the headline, we believe the story with its original title, might have been picked up by other news organizations worldwide.

It is quite disappointing that such a reputable news organization has decided to use the moniker.  We expect more from our news agencies.

Please see below for screen shots of the original article and the amended title.

Special thank you to @JoeVogel1 for bringing this to our attention. And, of course, all the fans who acted promptly, by contacting Reuters, to get the headline corrected.
