Fact or fiction do you have a view on this and what is going on at the moment with the radio stations etc banning his music.

Copy paste for people who don't like to click through to twitter.

 


NZ Media "we will no longer play the music of Michael Jackson due to the abhorrent crimes he committed against his alleged victims. Next up Tony Veitch with the sport."

 

 

 

"Coming up after the break, back to back hits, featuring R. Kelly and Chris Brown!"

 

 

 

The decisions by radio stations to not play a certain artists music due to accusations made in a documentary film seem inconstant at best given the the airtime that they give to other people who have done very bad things (and in many cases been convicted for them).

Just another knee jerk reaction to protect the reputation until it dies down.

 

What gives them the right to decide the rest of us should not hear it.

The following link provides an indepth look at the claims made on Leaving Neverland, and does a reasonable job of picking them apart. It's rather long, but leaves me calling baloney on the two accusers.

wade is known for making up stories etc

 

he going to make money on this ? yes

 

will he come out years later and say he made it up ? i think so

 

did Jackson do it ? maybe no to him but some thing might of happened to some else

 

banned his music ? if you ban his music the you should ban other peoples music, movies, tv programs, books etc that have done things, not just to children but also woman and men

 

i can think of at lest 20 people of my head that should be banned

Their right to run their business as they see fit. It's not exactly hard to find Michael Jackson's music if it's that important to you.

They may not get directly paid for Reed’s film, but they use it to assist their lawsuits that they have filed against Jackson’s companies for big monetary compensation, and that is currently in front of the appeals court. (Not long after the announcement of Leaving Neverland, Robson also started to advertise a foundation he had launched.)

Ban his music - why ? His music is not offensive. Plenty of other music out there I'd see banned. Hes not the only celebrity to get caught doing something dodgy, yet they don't have their music/movies/tv series etc banned.

 

Was Jacko guilty of whats been claimed ? Really, we'll never know so I don't have an opinion on that part of it. Same with the moon landing.

 

 

 

He was extremely talented with his music and dance and thats what most people will remember him for.

I personally haven't listened to his music for years (despite being a fan when I was younger) because I believe his accusers. I think he's guilty as sin, and the only reason people are debating this is because he wasn't caught in the act and had enough power and money to successfully muddy the waters. 





Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.

La Toya Jackson, MJ's sister confirms these allegations way back in 1993, so yes he's most probably a paedophile.

On a site called "The Michael Jackson Allegations"? Yeah, sounds unbiased. Wouldn't give any credibility to it.

Known for? Weird, I can't even find that criticism on Wikipedia, so I think you're full of it. A thought I consider reinforced by your attack of the person instead of the claims. We call that "ad hominem".

Do you think a judge is going to change their mind based on public opinion rather than the agruments presented? The case will be dismissed again.

As opposed to a one-sided documentary that provided no opposing views? Regardless of the name of the website, giving some thought to the content is more useful than your comment.

I'm reasonably confident that Michael Jackson never landed on the moon.
