I don't see any negative with releasing Michael Jackson's music. Life is for the living, and I seriously doubt if he cares. If he cared, he should have stayed around to protect it.
I'm not sure if describing Josh Elliot as taking a pay cut just to get away tells the full picture for him. He was demanding $10 million to stay. He's not worth that much. That's the kind of money a person can demand when the audience tunes in specifically for you (like Robin Roberts). I can't say I've heard many (if any) people saying the reason they watch GMA is for Josh Elliot. I've read rumors that now that he's at NBC he has his eyes on Matt Lauer's job and is quite confident it will be his. With the loyalty that Willie Geist has shown NBC, and the people who actually do tune into a show FOR him (and even did at 530am on MSNBC) I think Josh is a bit dellusional.
I Miss Josh!! He brought something special to the show that is now, noticeably, missing.
