Ich habe gestern von MJ Truth Now einen Newsletter bekommen. In Australien wird auf dem Fernsehsender Foxtel am 23.06.2011 die Dokumentation "Living with Michael Jackson" von Martin Bashir ausgestrahlt. Die MJ Fans rufen nun dazu auf mit Mails, Briefen und Anrufen den TV-Sender zu überschütten.

MJTruthNow has always felt that the truth
about Michael was severely compromised when Martin Bashir entered
Neverland in 2003. As we've reported several times, we believe Bashir is
a scar on the landscape of professional journalism. He should be
removed from America's airwaves. We will never cease our efforts until
he either publicly apologizes to
Michael's family or he is gone.
Foxtel, a TV station in Australia, is planning to screen "Living With Michael Jackson" on the Biography channel on June 23, 2011.
Time is of the essence.
Bashir's so called documentary should never be aired again. Let Foxtel know that
Bashir has a well-deserved reputation for being biased, self-serving and
manipulative. Point out that this film was maliciously edited to cast
Michael in a negative light, not a fair or balanced one. Ask that Foxtel
give "The Footage You Were Never Meant to See" the airtime instead. You
can view it at...

Re: Documentary, "Living With Michael Jackson," by Martin Bashir (host) and James Goldston (executive producer)
Why are you broadcasting this shabby and long-discredited piece of tabloid proctology? It was concocted by Martin
Bashir, the British shape-shifting poseur masquerading as a journalist, and his executive producer James Goldston. Having lost all credibility
even among fellow gu<img style="TEXT-ALIGN: right"
rats in England, Bashir turned to America for a makeover and fresh celebrity prey. He found pop superstar, Michael Jackson, who was
ill-advised to allow Bashir total access to his home, family and life. Why? Jackson hoped to replace, with truth, years of media-inspired
myths, distortions and lies that dogged his life. Instead, Bashir prepared a hit piece edited to strengthen the lie that Jackson was a
child predator and questionable parent. The devil is in the editing. Jackson countered Bashir's version with "Living with Michael Jackson Take 2:
The Footage You Were Never Meant to See," which included material omitted by Bashir that didn't support Bashir's point of view. Jackson's
rebuttal documentary was aired but never received the attention or exposure it deserves compared with Bashir's version. It's clear that
media around the world cling ruthlessly to its profitable Wacko Jacko image rather than that of Michael Jackson, human being, entertainer,
humanitarian and father. Foxtel's insistence on airing and re-airing Bashir's version is irrefutable testament to this.
Despite Bashir's smear campaign, Jackson was found not guilty in a court of law of the false charges leveled against him. Sadly, we can only guess the
toll such a trial had on Jackson's spirit. And wha<imgstyle="TEXT-ALIGN: left"
alt="Bad1" align="left" />t
of Bashir? He lives on, boasting that "Living with Michael Jackson" is among his proudest achievements. A more accurate title would be, "Martin
Bashir: Living Off Michael Jackson." Indeed, Bashir successfully parlayed his version of Jackson's life into a lucrative career move to American television where he now infects the airwaves at MSNBC. There he swims with other media sharks in the great toilet bowl that now passes for a news organization.
Bashir's crimes are legion--against journalism, against those he deems lucrative targets for his greed and self-aggrandizement, and against the viewers he regularly misinforms.
Yet he seems to escape punishment and is even rewarded. Bashir would make a very fine topic for investigation.
As a service to viewers, you should at least show both Michael Jackson documentaries: Bashir's smear piece and Jackson's rebuttal, "The Footage You Were Never Meant to See."
You have the first. Here is the second.
We hope that you will help your fellow MJ supporters in Australia to get this despicable documentary cancelled.
Thank you in advance for your support.
