Morning click: Jackson estate lands enormous record deal

- Michael Jackson's estate and Sony Music have made a deal to release ten Jackson albums over the next seven years, a contract worth $250 million, the biggest in the history of the recording industry. All material will come from Jackson's cache of unreleased songs, some of which he wrote in his troubled last years. The first new record is scheduled for a November release.
