    well reading the description it looks very pro MJ... almost too pro MJ to believe! I guess we will see, they did not play on the ambiguity at all and made Michael sounds great.. Coming from a journalist that's rare so we shall see I guess.

    Can't believe the Jacksons are working with this woman. Her objective is access to MJ kids. She was the host for the Bashir MJ interview in the usa. Every other word from her mouth was " disturbing." She turned many minds against MJ.

    I honestly think the show will be positive.... Reason, Walters is too devious to make it negative.. She has a positive show, it gets her "in".

    I'll still tune in. The very moment I hear some bullcrap then I'm turning it off. I give it 3 minutes, tops.
    I actually do.

    I hated the way she treated Michael in her interview. Michael was obviously nice but if that was me in Michael's place, I would have put her in her place.

    Tito? That is one lame ass no use brotha. I remember when he talked to some British
    hack on some UK show and when he was asked did anything inappropriate happen he answered
    I don't know. WTF?

    Fact is that Tito is like Katherine. They don't know shit about the allegations and they are totally
    ineffective when it comes to defending MJ. On 60 minutes Kathrine mentioned that hoax of Jordan recanting his story
    instead of talking about Evan's recorded phone call, or the 20 million dollar demand, or Jordan's refusal
    to testify any of the actual evidence this stupid woman had to mention a freaking hoax.....which of course
    the host was more than eager to refute, cause they always like to tell the CHandler's side of the story.

    Tito is the same. He is clueless. Jermaine is much better, knows much more about the evidence
    but he is not assertive enough either.

    TJ? I never saw anything from him that would actually convince someone on the fence that MJ was innocent.

    We'll see. I don't have much hope for this.

    But isn't this the same network which said they are working on a documentary that would expose his accusers
    and the media?

    Calling Katherine stupid for this is wrong. Do you really think Katherine wants to read up on how her son was photographed naked, on what Jordan Chandler claimed MJ did to him and more? Of course not. She couldn't stomach hearing about the pornography her son owned.

    Somebody should of stopped her saying Jordan recanted. Who knows how that came about though. It was a mistake.

    Expecting her to know all about the cases is ridiculous. A Mother doesn't want to read about all that.

    Then dont talk about it. It just makes you look stupid and makes mj look guilty when his own family are so clueless about the facts and are useless at defending him.unfortunatly they cant refuse a few bucks so will take any chance to make some regardless of how it makes them or mj look

    ^ They don't talk about it unless they are asked.. family members are not fans! they don't obsess about facts the way we do and we as fans don't have the sentimental issues of the pain reading into it..

    You know how many fans read the autopsy??? Now you think his mother wanted to read how much his heart weighed? Come on, leave her alone, she's dealt with enough!!!!!

    Obviously I don't think Katherine is stupid, but I do think she is naive-and also really think that she is very protected. Michael obviously protected his mother with a lot of things and she strikes me as the kind of woman that turned to religion when there were problems in her life or the family's life. I remember an interview after (the Oprah one) with the whole family and you can tell that they really didn't know about the vitiligo-if they did know, they probably found out right around when the show aired. I heard her say that about Chandler and I've heard her say something about him probably having body dysmorphic order-and both times somebody probably told her and she accepted it as a logical reason, even though they weren't true.


    I was thinking about this show yesterday, and decided to do a few minutes of research and found the whole first year on YouTube. Also a few interviews she gave about the series last year. I can already tell it's going to be trash-along the lines of the Reelz channel docs. It's all about BIG American Scandals-that had everybody talking-the Menendez Bros. who killed their parents, the teacher that had a couple of kids with her 13 year old student (Mary Jane LaTourneu), JonBenet Ramsey murder, Jean Harris murder, Robert Blake, that kind of stuff. The difference is that she interviewed these people back in the day, so those interviews will be cut in as well as re-interviewing some people today that were involved.
    I'll bet money we won't hear that Michael was innocent and railroaded by the legal system, but she'll interview Mrs. Jackson and Tito, etc. and they'll say pretty much what we've heard already-how upsetting it was, etc.

    well if i loved and cared about someone i would want to know about the facts inorder to defend the one i love. If i dont want to read up then i certainly wouldnt make comments about it i would just say im not ansering such questions.because all you do is make mj look bad/guilty and yourself when your cluelss about the thing you are being questioned about.especially when you have a tight nit mantre

    Fans read up on the facts because they love mj and want to defend him.its totally about love.using maureens fans and family B.S wont fly anymore especially how they happily throw mj under the bus inorder to protect their image.

    No ones asking katherine to read the autopsy.many fans ,i for one went no where near it. Compairing that with not making knowingly false claims about chandler because of what ppl told her or all the other things she and the family have said and done have nothing to do with each other.

    And no doubt they all got a pay check for the above tabloid trash.

    I'll just give this a pass. No what they say it will probably be heavily edited anyway and I don't trust any of the shows or doc's coming out. One day they may begin to be more open and honest about him, but I don't think we're there yet. If they were it would be like admitting they weren't honest before.
    As for Katherine, I think she doesn't want to know everything. Perhaps its too painful or perhaps that's just the way she is. For me, as a mother, I'd want to know what was happening to my child and would defend them with my last breath.
