On 29 May 2011, 90s pop singer Aaron Carter was filmed for an interview with freelance 'journalist' and friend Daphne Barak for OK! Magazine's 27 June Australian edition. The article and excerpts that have been released have spread rapidly across the media for one reason - it involves Michael Jackson.

Mr. Carter’s friendship - and we use that word loosely - with Mr. Jackson is not in question. What is in question are the elements in the interview suggesting that Mr. Jackson would have given Aaron Carter drugs or alcohol, or that he would have acted improperly towards him in any way- something that the Michael Jackson Fan Community strongly disagrees with.

Any such claims made by Mr. Carter can be easily debunked simply by referring to his previous consistent assertions. It is well known that Mr. Carter had always spoken highly of Jackson’s positive influence on his life and work, and had unquestionably denied that anything inappropriate had ever occurred between them (see Howard Stern interview: http://youtu.be/nE2Cq6WGCpk) even as recently as 2010. In several past interviews, including his interview with Howard Stern referenced, he claimed that he only spent one night at Neverland, which occured on the occasion of Mr. Jackson's 45th birthday party. On that particular night, Mr. Carter said he slept in the theater with Chris Tucker - he on one side of the theater and Mr. Tucker on the other. Furthermore, Mr. Carter emphasized that he never slept in a bed with Mr. Jackson, nor did he go into Mr. Jackson's room. As a matter of fact, Aaron Carter so steadfastly denied any inappropriate behavior in his friendship with Mr. Jackson, that he was on the witness list for the defense in the 2005 trial.

Indeed, after all the years of defending Mr. Jackson, the Fan Community finds it quite puzzling that Mr. Carter would all of a sudden give such an inconsistent interview.

Let's not lose sight of the fact that Frank Cascio, who had maintained his friendship with Jackson since his childhood, tweeted in defense of Mr. Jackson on 30 June 2011 as follows: "I knew Michael for over 25 years and NEVER once did he use cocaine or suggest to anyone else to use cocaine. Never!!!!" (http://twitter.com/#!/fdcascio/status/86547254990733312). Mr. Cascio and his family had been visited by Mr. Jackson on a regular basis. Also, Mr. Cascio frequented Neverland and had even traveled with Mr. Jackson from a young age. In addition, Mr. Cascio also attended the party at Neverland to which Mr. Carter refers.

In light of the above mentioned and all other undeniable evidence, the Michael Jackson Fan Community is questioning the real motive behind this seeming change of heart and story.

The timing of the interview is also extremely suspect. In June, while millions around the world were mourning the passing of Mr. Jackson, some- with even a remote connection to him- seemed to find it an ideal opportunity to promote their book, CD, or project, or to use an acquaintance with Mr. Jackson as an opportunity to get free promotion and make profit. Mr. Carter's current $1,000,000 debt to the IRS cannot be downplayed. Neither can it be ignored that he is currently promoting the impending release of new music as well as a reality show. Aaron Carter’s willingness to jump on the aforementioned bandwagon, although quite disappointing, is not surprising.

The slanderous story published by OK! Magazine, surfaced on 15 June prompting some concerned Jackson fans to immediately reach out to Aaron Carter via twitter, only to be rebuffed and ignored by the latter for not less than two weeks. An official and strong statement of denial would have obviously halted this slander in its tracks. Indeed, this is what an honorable person would do in love and respect for a deceased friend and mentor. Unfortunately, the sickening speculation and insinuations have been allowed to linger. As a result, the only person who has been fully damaged in this appalling debacle is Mr. Jackson --an easy target-- who is unfortunately not here to defend himself.

Now that this story has been thoroughly reported, Mr. Carter, through his representative, has issued a statement saying that he was misquoted in the article. Yet in still, as the edited excerpts of the interview clearly demonstrated, Mr. Carter skillfully and purposely answered questions in an ambiguous way which has allowed for speculation and has resulted in apparent innuendo. Consequently, the public opinion has been utterly misled.

Carter's denial through TMZ on 1 July 2011 is now being widely reported, nevertheless, more needs to be done. Ideally, Mr. Carter must demand a full retraction from OK! Magazine, if it is indeed misrepresenting what he really said. However, as the slander continues to unfold, it is increasingly clear that the Carter camp has seen the benefits of tying his name in a negative way to Mr. Jackson’s and is taking full advantage of the frenzy and (inter)national media coverage.

Daphne Barak has also had an extremely dubious past. She is known to have previously "forged" stories.

Grace Rwaramba, who had been Jackson's children's nanny for several years, was approached and befriended by Daphne Barak with the sole aim of taking advantage of her in the hopes of finding out information about Michael Jackson. In a story written by Mallika Chopra and published in The Huffington Post on 28 June 2009, Mallika said the following: "I witnessed Daphne act as a friend while trying to bait information from Grace on her conversations with Jackson family members and friends about his death... I found that Daphne indeed had written an article full of quotes by Grace for a tabloid magazine. (A quick search of her other work not surprisingly shows she did a recent feature on Amy Winehouse.) Grace’s quotes are now being picked up by other tabloids and will find their way into more magazines and articles. (People Magazine is also featuring some inaccuracies today, such as the claim that Grace pumped Michael’s stomach on several occasions. For the record, Grace never pumped Michael’s stomach. She has not the slightest idea how she would even do such a thing.)... " (http://tinyurl.com/nbqshd 'Bloodsuckers and the World of Michael Jackson')


Daphne Barak was also at the center of controversy in reference to an inteview with Sanam Bhutto. An article published by SouthAsiaWatch on 24 March 2009 chronicles her faux journalism.
It says, "Daphne Barak [...] has been foisting herself upon the famous and noteworthy families of the world for years now. Her living is made by offering "exclusive" interviews, scintillating gossip, and manufacturing rumor and innuendo at every turn. She is often spotted interviewing members of families in crisis, taking advantage of their grief and need for hope, in order to fuel her personal drive for fame, access, and notoriety. Daphne portrays and tarnishes the image of Bhutto by revealing or blatantly manufacturing details that cannot be independently verified about Bhutto's life... any references to Bhutto or Pakistan that she writes should be taken as near-fiction or nothing less than a complete fabrication... In more recent Pakistan news, Daphne Barak has done the nation of Pakistan and its people a grave disservice by manufacturing a news story featuring "statements" from Benazair Bhutto's sister, Sanam, regarding the President of Pakistan, Asif Zardari. While biased journalism may be tolerated in many circles, Daphne Barak crossed the line into complete fiction. Sanam Bhutto, outraged and distressed at the lies attributed to her, vigorously denounced the fiction produced by Daphne Barak, via print and video ." The article also mentions how she "cozied" up to the parents of Amy Winehouse, "feeding off their grief and concern for their daughter" in order to get a story on Amy Winehouse. (http://tinyurl.com/3luq3ge)

Her methods have been consistent: befriending a person for the purpose of interviewing them so that she can then put a spin on said interview. Is this what happened with Aaron Carter? Note her tweet about him on 29 May:

daphnebarak Daphne Barak
So glad, my friend Aaron Carter is joining me, for a charity gala in Marbella. What a perfect place, to kick off his upcoming record?!

This speaks volumes about Ms. Barak's ethics and values as a journalist. It also speaks volumes of the character of both Ms. Barak and Mr. Carter. As far as they and others who have been involved are concerned, they have been able to raise their profiles on the back of Mr. Jackson.

Furthermore, it is quite disturbing that we live in a time when our media is blindly willing to copy-paste a story without first verifying its accuracy and veracity. Very few media outlets made mention of Carter's previous denials, not to mention the reputation of the interviewer. Although the slanderous story about this interview originated from OK! Magazine, which is most certainly not known for being a reputable publication, it hasn't taken long for over 150 media outlets to copy-paste the story as fact and run with it. This becomes even more disturbing when this practice is adopted by news outlets that are supposed to report factual stories, such as CBSnews, USA Today and CNN. It is frustratingly apparent that facts are not of great concern to the media, which is regrettable.

Now that some aspects of the interview have been denied, we can only hope that there will be a more rigorous screening process before stories are aired or published, especially when the source is a tabloid and the author has a questionable reputation (see http://youtu.be/x9Dz7rs8VfA).

We call on all Michael Jackson fans to boycott the magazine and to express their disagreement to the editors of OK magazine as well as their distress to Daphne Barak (the author). Fans also need to let their sources of news and information know that they are no longer interested in uncorroborated, salacious stories.

Michael Jackson was defamed and maligned in life. His fans are committed and determined to see that this defamation does not continue in death.

CatherineNZ is translating it to Russian and sending it to those in the Russian market who printed the story.
Triniti translated it into Polish and is sending it to the Polish outlets.
Mjzfillz is sending it to the Norwegian outlets.


Regarding sending it to outlets who did not cover the story, I would just be afraid of sending this story to markets who were not even exposed to it in the first place. I would be afraid of helping to spread the story further or keeping iot on people's mouths more than necessary. For those who did not print a retraction, they absolutely need to be notified and (hopefully) will print a retraction.

Given that these are all Polish websites, would it be possible to get a copy of Triniti's Polish translation of the statement?

Polish translation by Triniti

W dniu 29 maja 2011 roku piosenkarz popowy lat dziewięćdziesiątych Aaron Carter zarejestrował wywiad z niezależną "dziennikarką" i przyjaciółką Daphne Barak dla czasopisma OK Australian (wydanie z dnia 27 czerwca). Opublikowany artykuł i jego fragmenty szybko rozprzestrzeniły się we wszystkich mediach z jednego powodu - dotyczyły Michaela Jacksona.
Nie kwestionujemy przyjaźni (traktujemy znaczenie tego słowa szeroko) Cartera z Jacksonem. Jakkolwiek, społeczność fanów Michaela Jacksona zdecydowanie odrzuca elementy historii sugerujące i insynuujące, że Pan Jackson miał dać Aaronowi Carterowi narkotyki czy alkohol, czy też w jakikolwiek inny sposób postąpić niewłaściwie w stosunku do niego.
W istocie, przez te wszystkie lata pan Carter bronił Pana Jacksona - nawet niedawno w 2010 roku. Społeczność fanów jest zaskoczona, że Pan Carter nagle udzielił tak niespójnego wywiadu. Przeciwnie, Pan Carter zawsze wyrażał się pochlebnie o panu Jacksonie i cenił pozytywny wpływ na jego życie i pracę. Zdecydowanie zaprzeczał, by coś niestosownego miało kiedykolwiek miejsce (patrz wywiad z Howardem Sternem
http://youtu.be/nE2Cq6WGCpk).


Twierdzenia poczynione przez Cartera mogą być łatwo obalone przez to, co sam dotychczas konsekwentnie mówił. Dla przykładu, Aaron Carter twierdził, że spędził tylko jedną noc w Neverland i spał w teatrze z Chrisem Tuckerem i innymi gośćmi. Zawsze podkreślał, że nigdy nie spał w łóżku z panem Jacksonem i nigdy nie był w jego pokoju. W rzeczywistości pan Carter stanowczo zaprzeczał jakiemukolwiek niewłaściwemu zachowaniu podczas przyjęcia i był na liście świadków obrony w procesie w 2005 roku.

Frank Cascio, który utrzymywał przyjaźń z Jacksonem napisał w obronie swojego przyjaciela na Tweeterze:
"Znałem Michaela przez ponad 25 lat i NIGDY nie zażywał kokainy oraz nie sugerował nikomu zażywania kokainy. NIGDY!!!"
http://twitter.com/#!/fdcascio/status/86547254990733312
Michael regularnie odwiedzał Franka i jego rodzinę. Frank bywał w Neverland i nawet podróżował z Michaelem od najmłodszych lat.

W świetle powyższego i innych oczywistych dowodów, społeczność fanów Michaela Jacksona kwestionuje prawdziwy powód tej rzekomej zmiany zdania i zmieniania historii.

Wybranie terminu przeprowadzenia wywiadu jest również wyjątkowo podejrzane. W czerwcu, podczas gdy miliony fanów na całym świecie opłakiwały odejście Pana Jacksona, niektórzy, nawet najbardziej z nim związani, zdawali się odkrywać idealną okazję do promocji książek, płyt CD czy innych własnych projektów. Skwapliwość Aarona Cartera do wykorzystania tej koniunktury, choć bardzo rozczarowująca, nie zaskakuje.
Według przedstawiciela Aarona, został on w artykule błędnie zacytowany. Jakkolwiek, edytowane fragmenty wywiadu wyraźnie pokazują, że Pan Carter odpowiadał celowo w sposób pozwalający na spekulacje i insynuacje. W związku z tym opinia publiczna została całkowicie wprowadzona w błąd.

Zaprzeczenie Cartera jest teraz szeroko relacjonowane, niemniej jednak, jest jeszcze wiele do zrobienia. Pan Carter powinien domagać się pełnego sprostowania w magazynie OK, jeśli rzeczywiście przeinaczono jego wypowiedź. Ponieważ oszczerstwo nadal się rozszerza, widać wyraźnie, że obóz Cartera zobaczył korzyści płynące z wiązania w negatywny sposób nazwiska Carter z nazwiskiem Pana Jacksona i w pełni wykorzystuje szaleństwo i (między)narodowe relacje mediów.

Oszczercze opowieści pojawiły się już 15 czerwca, co wywołało natychmiastową reakcję zaniepokojonych fanów. Fani Jacksona dotarli do Aarona Cartera poprzez Twiiter. Zostali przez niego zignorowani i odesłani z kwitkiem.
Oficjalne i dobitnie zaprzeczające oświadczenie zakończyłoby te oszczerstwa. Tak postąpiłaby uczciwa osoba w imię miłości i szacunku dla swojego zmarłego przyjaciela i mentora. Niestety, odrażającym insynuacjom i spekulacjom pozwolono utrzymywać się. W rezultacie, jedyną osobą, która została całkowicie pokrzywdzona przez to nieudane przedsięwzięcie jest Pan Jackson- łatwy cel. Pan Jackson nie może już się sam obronić. Wszyscy inni, którzy są w to zamieszani, zyskują rozgłos kosztem pana Jacksona.

Daphne Barak ma niezwykle wątpliwą przeszłość. Już wcześniej "tworzyła" historie. Zaprzyjaźniła się z Grace Rwaramba - byłą nianią dzieci Jacksona - w celu wykorzystania tej znajomości w nadziei na odkrycie informacji dotyczących Michaela Jacksona.
W artykule napisanym przez Mallika Chorpa dla The Huffington Post, Mallika powiedziała co następuje:
"Byłam świadkiem, jak Daphane udawała przyjaciółkę, podczas gdy starała się wyciągnąć informacje od Grace o jej rozmowach z członkami rodziny Jacksonów i przyjaciółmi na temat śmierci pana Jacksona… Stwierdziłam, że Daphne rzeczywiście napisała artykuł pełen cytatów (z wypowiedzi) Grace dla tabloidowego pisma. (Jak można było się spodziewać, szybko odnalazła kolejną pracę, na co wskazuje napisany ostatnio przez nią artykuł o Amy Winehouse). Wypowiedzi Grace są teraz na nowo podejmowane przez inne tabloidy i trafiają do kolejnych czasopism i artykułów."

Daphne Barak znalazła się również w centrum uwagi po kontrowersyjnym wywiadzie z Sanam Bhutto. Artykuł w SouthAsiaWatch opisuje jej fałszywe dziennikarstwo.

Czytamy:
"Daphne Barak [...] narzuca się znanym i godnym uwagi rodzinom z całego świata od lat. Żyje z oferowania iskrzących się od plotek wywiadów "na wyłączność" i na każdym kroku produkuje pogłoski i insynuacje. Rozpoznawalne już jest, że często przeprowadza wywiady z członkami rodzin, będących w kryzysie, czerpiąc korzyści z ich smutku i potrzeby nadziei w celu zaspokojenia jej osobistego dążenia do sławy i rozgłosu. Daphne zszargała wizerunek Bhutto poprzez ujawnianie, czy rażące fabrykowanie szczegółów na temat jej życia, które nie mogą być w sposób niezależny zweryfikowane… Wszelkie odniesienia do Bhutto czy Pakistanu, o których napisała, powinny być traktowane jako bliskie fikcji albo jako całkowity wymysł. W ostatnich wiadomościach na temat Pakistanu, Daphne Barak zrobiła narodowi Pakistanu niedźwiedzią przysługę fabrykując wiadomości odnośnie "oświadczenia" siostry Benazair Bhutto, Sanam, o prezydencie Pakistanu - Asifie Zardari. Podczas gdy stronnicze dziennikarstwo może być tolerowane w wielu kręgach, Daphne Barak przekroczyła granicę całkowitej fikcji. Sanam Bhutto, oburzona i zrozpaczona kłamstwami jej przypisywanymi, stanowczo potępiła fikcję wyprodukowaną przez Daphne Barak za pośrednictwem prasy i materiałów video".

Artykuł wspomina również, jak "budowała przyjacielską atmosferę" w relacjach z rodzicami Amy Winehouse "wykorzystując ich żal troskę o córkę", by otrzymać historię Amy Winehouse.
Jej metody były konsekwentne: zaprzyjaźnić się z osobą w celu przeprowadzenia wywiadu, aby później nadać wywiadowi własną interpretację. Czy to samo wydarzyło się z Aaronem Carterem? Jej zapiski na Twitterze na jego temat z 29 maja:

daphnebarak Daphne Barak
Tak się cieszę, że mój przyjaciel Aaron Carter przyłączył się do mnie na gali charytatywnej w Marbella. Co za idealne miejsce na inaugurację jego nadchodzącej płyty?!

To mówi wiele o etyce Pani Barak i jej wartościach jako dziennikarki.

Co więcej, jest niepokojące, że żyjemy w czasach, kiedy nasze media skwapliwie kopiują i przeklejają treść newsa bez uprzedniego zbadania ich trafności i prawdziwości. Nie uczyniono żadnej wzmianki o wcześniejszych zaprzeczeniach pana Cartera, ani o reputacji dziennikarki przeprowadzającej wywiad. To jeszcze bardziej niepokoi, kiedy ta praktyka jest przejmowana przez serwisy informacyjne, które powinny informować o historiach opartych na faktach, tj: CBSnews, USA Today i CNN.

Pomimo tego że ta oszczercza opowieść pochodzi z OK! Magazine, który jest wszystkim innym, tylko nie renomowanym publicystycznym medium, nie musieliśmy długo czekać, żeby ponad 150 serwisów skopiowało historię i ją opublikowało. Oczywiste i frustrujące jest to, że media nie traktują rzetelności w relacjonowaniu faktów jako przedmiot ich wielkiej troski. Jest to również niewątpliwie haniebne.

Ponieważ zaprzeczono pewnym aspektom wywiadu, możemy tylko mieć nadzieję, że nastąpi bardziej rygorystyczny proces kontroli zanim historie będą nagłośniane lub publikowane, szczególnie jeśli ich źródłem są tabloidy lub ich autor posiada wątpliwą reputację.
(patrz http://youtu.be/x9Dz7rs8VfA ).

Wzywamy wszystkich fanów Michaela Jacksona do bojkotu pisma i do wyrażenia swojego sprzeciwu wobec redakcji magazynu OK, jak również do niepokojenia Daphane Barak (autorki). Fani muszą również powiadomić swoich dziennikarzy odpowiedzialnych za wiadomości i informacje, że nie są dłużej zainteresowani niepotwierdzonymi, lubieżnymi historiami.

Michael Jackson był zniesławiany i oczerniany za życia. Jego fani są zobowiązani i zdeterminowani dopilnować tego, żeby kampania oszczerstw nie była kontynuowana po jego śmierci.

Thank you, Memefan. Just another small question (sorry!). When emailing the statement to the Polish outlets, what should I type in the subject field? If I leave it blank, the email will just bypass their inbox completely as it will be considered spam. If I type in English, they'll probably ignore it. So I'm just wondering if someone could be so kind to give me something in Polish to put in the subject line? Again, sorry to be a bother, but I want to do this right. Thanks again Memefan and Triniti for the translation :huggy:

I already made changes to the links.

@Maral,

what I will do is reach out to each outlet and try to get a contact name & email. I will then personalize the email (To Mr So & so..) and
paste the letter...

Twinklee,

Would you mind editing your last post and remove the outlets list. it makes it hard to scroll down with all these outlets quoted in several posts

My gf asked me about this.. She asked why would Aaron say something like this when he was his friend for so long..

And how I responded was this..

"I cannot say for sure but I definatly look into if he has an album coming out soon, or if he's planning on another reality show or something.. Maybe he's in debt.. Whatever it is I bet he's desperate for some advertizement for something.. He'll be releasing something really soon.. watch."

Then I get on today to read the article stay almost verbatum what I was assuming.. People are so easy to read and fallow the pattern so well
