If Michael Jackson's trip this week to Washington, D.C., to raise awareness of AIDS in Africa reeked of a shameless PR stunt, that's because, well, it was. According to Variety, Jacko's handlers are shopping a special to the networks featuring footage from the baby-dangler's mission on Capitol Hill. The asking price for the package, which would also include a 10-minute interview with Jacko? A cool $3 million. Not surprisingly, ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox are apparently showing little interest.
