    OK, thanks, I’ll start a new thread then.

    You all read Taraborrelli’s book and take it at face value or what?

    I wasn’t able to find any credible source so far. The National Enquirer dude on Geraldo’s show even claimed the photo they first got was a polaroid of poor quality so they couldn’t print it and MJ went back and took a better photo.

    I mean, seriously? They receive a “bizarre” photo of MJ directly from his PR team (as he claims) and what they do is call them back for a better quality version instead of slapping it on the front page right away? Risking that somebody else runs the story first? WTF?

    It’s the typical case of someone adding wild details to their story to sell a lie. Meanwhile, he doesn’t produce the first photo, the accompanying letter that explains what it is, or any of the follow-up conversation to prove his claims. He could have easily shown those items live on TV.

    I gotta find that video, it was a joke.

    Edit: Found it. This was shortly after the Oprah special.

    You’re on to something!

    Media and press took advantage of what he intentionally had started, and then they began publishing their own, fake stories about him.

    It's a bit naive to think though that the tabloid press would have been any different to him in later years, if he only had not planted (IF true) those oxygen chamber and elefant man stories etc.

    For one, I'm pretty sure there were tons of fake (not planted) stories even before those.

    And more importantly, no one could get around the obvious fact that his look changed DRASTICALLY in the 80s. That alone would have made him the tabloid press target that he was.
