FOX News analyst Eric Burns is reporting that the E! entertainment television cable network will use court transcripts to re-enact the Michael Jackson child molestation trial on TV since cameras will not be allowed in the courtroom.

I wonder who will play Michael Jackson...

This strikes me as a new low in "news" coverage. Fake, staged spectacle. News that is not real.

One could argue that this just illustrates what happened in court, in the same way that the more commonplace drawings are used to illustrate the scene in a closed court. But drawings are clearly drawings. When actors, perhaps bad actors chosen for physical resembelance, are used to illustrate what real people said or did, the actor's tone of voice, mannerisms and appearance are ilmplied to be those of the actual person. This may not be the case, and is not fair to the actual person.
