Correct the media lies!
Justice for Michael is many things, and I personally do believe he is entitled to Justice on so many levels.
This is specific about Justice for Michael in the media. Maybe you have seen a campaign on Twitter, where justice is demanded, in form of an apology from the medias and clearing Michael’s name in the media.
They need to retract their old lies and start telling the truth about Michael. Please take a moment and read the rest of this post, because together, we might be able to do something..
This is about how the medias [mis]handled the trials of Michael Jackson. They labeled him guilty even before the trials started, and they only reported half the stories from the courtroom. Anything that was in favour of Michael, they left out. When he was found not guilty, they immediately blamed it on his fame or wealth. No apologies from the press, they kept lying and they still do it. And that’s why so many people think he is guilty. They only know what the medias told them.
It is time for medias to correct the lies they made about Michael Jackson, and that’s why I will ask you to sign this petition:
There are two articles I will recommend you to read. They are written by Charles Thomsen in The Huffington Post.
One of the Most Shameful Episodes In Journalistic History
Michael Jackson: It’s Time For Outlets to Take Responsibility in Covering the Rock Star
Quotes from the article:
“Networks were so obsessed by the Jackson scandal that a terrorist attack in Turkey went almost entirely unreported, with only CNN bothering to broadcast George Bush and Tony Blair’s joint press conference about the disaster.”
“Within two days of the Neverland raid, and before Jackson had even been arrested, VH1 announced a half-hour documentary called ‘Michael Jackson Sex Scandal’. “
“Newspapers reacted just as hysterically as TV stations. ‘Sicko!’ shrieked the New York Daily News. ‘Jacko: Now Get Out Of This One’ goaded the New York Post.”
“The Sun – Britain’s biggest newspaper – ran an article titled ‘He’s Bad, He’s Dangerous, He’s History’. The piece branded Jackson an ‘ex-black ex-superstar’, a ‘freak’ and a ‘twisted individual’ and called for his children to be taken into care. “If he weren’t a pop idol with piles of cash to hide behind,” it said, “he would have been picked up years ago.” “
“Unfortunately for Jackson, Gavin Arvizo’s cross-examination was all but ignored as newspapers giggled and gossiped about what became known as ‘pajama day’. On the first day of the boy’s direct examination Jackson slipped in his shower, bruised his lung and was rushed to hospital. When Judge Rodney Melville ordered a bench warrant for Jackson’s arrest unless he arrived within an hour, the singer sped to the courthouse in the pajama trousers he’d been wearing when he was rushed to hospital.
The photographs of Jackson in his pajamas went all over the world, often with no mention of Jackson’s injury or the reason why he was wearing them. Many journalists accused Jackson of faking the entire event in order to gain sympathy, although sympathetic is the last word you’d use to describe the media’s reaction.”
I have signed the petition, and I hope you will do the same.
Thank you for showing your love and faith in Michael!
