(Newser) – Jack Kevorkian begs to differ with the coroner who ruled Michael Jackson's death a homicide: The original Dr. Death told Fox News that Jacko "got what he wanted," the New York Daily News reports. "He is the one who said yes or no to take a drug," said Kevorkian, who remains proud of his role in pushing assisted suicide into the spotlight. "Murder is defined by forethought. … Did the doctor have forethought? I doubt it."
