    Let's stop making a fuzz about it just because we're still not over LN. It only makes fans look bitter and frustrated.
    'That Ellen woman', who says 'Be Kind' at the end of each show, and who is /was a major influencer on US TV told her Twitter followers:

    Ellen DeGeneres@TheEllenShow
    Mar 5, 2019
    I’m watching @Oprah interview James Safechuck and Wade Robson from #LeavingNeverland on @OWNTV.
    I hope everyone watches this. #AfterNeverland
    Ellen interviewed Paris Jackson on her TV chat show in December 2011 (and was 'nice' to her in public), then with zero research followed her friend Oprah in condemning MJ on the basis of a purely one-sided film, showing R and S's accusations only. There is nothing 'kind' or fair or reasonable about Ellen's treatment of Michael. Ellen does not practice what she preaches, where MJ is concerned.

    If she doesn't like Michael or had concerns about his behaviour, why invite MJ fans like Salif on her show, or MJ's children? She is a hypocrite who acts in accordance with what she thinks will curry public interest and favour at the time.

    I know and agree. You don't have to convince me that these people are scum. I meant that Ellens current troubles have no direct connection to anything Michael Jackson. Her show isn't getting cancelled because she supported LN.

    My general point of critique was about keeping it rational. Stay above the level of the bully.
    Going after everyone who ever worked on one of these shows and celebrating their unrelated failures in life just takes it a bit too far and puts a bad light on US fans imo.

    Anyway. My 2 cents.

    -----------------

    Of course they don't. I doubt anyone would say the opposite. The point is these ppl attacked mj they were hypocrites. Jumped on the bandwagon to take part in a one sided attack. Yet in reality they were throwing stones to hide their hands.

Spread the news..." then that's just plain childish and looks incredibly desperate for revenge or even crazy to non-fans. And it doesn't put a good light on MJ fans fighting against LN in general.
    That is kind of you; but I will admit, I am petty just for the reasons others gave. The hypocrisy. I can care less about any MJ hater or person who think we or I am petty. They want to think we are "petty" because we expose the BS they speak on MJ and we (I know I wont) kiss their @$$ to be able to say whatever they want even lies and want fans & the Jacksons to say nothing while only they speak which is tabloid trash and clearly know no facts of the case. Like someone said, where was the fairness to MJ, his family, his fans, etc? Where was the fairness to seek the truth about the lies told on MJ instead of trying to hide the truth of those lying accusers? And if anyone think it is "crazy', so what. As far as I am concern (people like that do not care about MJ anyway or the truth and I do not care about them). As I say, "when people go low, I will go to the floor".

    I still feel like my point is not coming through. So I'll try one last time.


    I don't care about what the haters think about fans. The hardcore haters are lost.
    I care about how things look to neutral people. Those unfinalized opinions that we are fighting for.

    There's an important difference between:

    A.) Exposing haters hypocrisy and calling out and debunking their BS.
    = Fully ok. Necessary. Do it! Be petty about it if you want.

    B.) Celebrating that a hater literally falls down the stairs. [analogy]
    = Just immature & eroding grounds to properly do A.) towards neutral people.

    For example, celebrating things like some worker at the Ellen show losing his job for whatever non-MJ reason is category B. That guy did not get fired for his pro-LN tweet, which should be our only concern. Because otherwise it just contributes to the widely spread conception that "all MJ fans are crazy", making it harder for all of us to get taken serious.

    It feels like some of you have lost perspective that this world is not completely polarized between hardcore fans and hardcore haters. The majority of people on this planet know 0 about all of this. And there are tons of decent people who are interested but just have not been exposed to real facts. What should they find when they decide to dig deeper? A or B?


    I hope that explains what I wanted to say regarding SOME of the things posted. I didn't mean to make a big fuzz about it.

    from 2017 but nice to see how documented Wade's involvement in the britney/justin breakup was long before LN came out.

    i searched it because it was mentioned in the new podcast with taj from today:

    30.01.2006 - My personal MJ-DAY! Thank you, Michael!

    I agree. We shouldn't be posting minute updates of random people having minor problems in life not related in any way to LN on this thread. I know from long years that I've wondered when some people will get theirs but posting about these small fish just makes us look petty. I might be stepping on Electro's point here, but at least wait for something tangible like Oprah getting cancelled (not happening)

    I haven’t been on the site for a while, What is the latest news on them two lying scumbags, I refuse to read anything in the media about MJ as it sickens me but I haven’t heard anything about them for a while and just wondered if they had both dropped dead (wishful thinking on my part).

    They have mostly disappeared from the public, but their lawsuits are still going on. Dan Reed is filming the hearings, although he’s not allowed to film anyone, so he’s basically just recording audio. It still hasn’t been decided whether or not there will even be a trial, and if there will be one, it won’t be before June 2021. So, if you really don’t want to hear more about them than absolutely necessary, you can safely wait another couple of months before you check in again.

    Being on this site is no issue for me when it comes to them two as we all feel the same way about them so thats a great comfort. I did read the article about ellen and hope she gets what’s coming to her as well, not sure why anyone would think she was anything but scum, cant stand the woman, never have and never will, karma really is a bitch haha

    Interesting reports about lawyer Lisa Bloom, the atty. who is Gloria Allred's daughter, and who was retained by a certain H. Weinstein:

    In March 2019, Bloom was quick to support LN on Twitter:




    But it seems that Ms Bloom has some troubles of her own:

    Lisa Bloom Blows Bruce Weber Case, Attempt to Coach Client to Lie Exposed

    Some call it “another setback” others, “a slow motion trainwreck.” Either way, Lisa Bloom’s stain on the legal profession continues to grow as a judge calls her opponent’s evidence ‘Indisputable.”

    Buddy Kreuger made a big mistake when he tried to cash in on having worked for superstar photographer Bruce Weber with sexual harassment allegations: Kreuger hired Lisa Bloom to represent him. Bloom has been having a very bad couple of years: She was exposed for having sold out all her past clients and feminist-bonafides to Harvey Weinstein, as reported in the book 'She Said'. She was exposed for having sold out her pal Ronan Farrow and participated in trying to get his reporting on Weinstein shut down with NBC. She has had to step back from numerous cases including ones involving CA Rep Cardenas and Usher. And, perhaps most humiliating at all, she lost a high profile case to a non-lawyer, Alki David, who admitted to being stoned throughout the trial.

    In any case Kreuger is now shit-out-of-luck on his scam, thanks to Bloom.

    “He appeared like he was trying to fit the incident into the statute of limitations, so the judge saw right through it,” a source familiar with the case told Page Six. “Bruce and his team had records and evidence that contradicted Krueger’s story each time he changed it, and the judge called Bruce’s evidence ‘indisputable.’ ”

    Bloom did the same thing in the E. Taylor (not the filmstar) v. Alki David case, in which a jury issued a decision in favor of David 8-4, saying Taylor’s testimony was not credible. Taylor was caught in numerous lies on the stand.....

    And, as Page Six reports, in June, Bloom was ordered to pay Weber over $28,000 in legal costs after one of her key witnesses refused to answer certain questions at a deposition in the case brought by model Jason Boyce, another plaintiff. Unlike other “Expert Witnesses” Bloom and her mother Gloria Allred use regularly, she seems to have accidentally hired one with a shred of ethics left, one who wouldn’t lie to support false claims. Allred was under fire recently when it was exposed that her go-to hack shrink, Cindy Buf Meyers “from UCLA” lied to the jury in the Khan v. David case about how much she would be paid for her testimony. She said it would be a few thousand dollars when in fact it was $36,000.

    Both Lisa Bloom and Gloria Allred are said to be under investigation by the California State Bar.
