^ Ivy - Ok, so that is pretty much what he said in the first clip as well. Is the 3rd video the last, or is there more being advertised? I really hope it's the last. I'm tired of this crap. Really really tired. Time someone stepped in.

a little bit different than the first because after saying "he gave me wine but i wanted to because i was experimenting", he goes on to say "if i was a 40 year old man i wouldn't give a teenager such things even if they wanted".

and yes another video is being mentioned on the website but no idea about what the contents will be.

i'll do it.

and a fyi - daphe posted the 3rd video. Aaron does say michael gave me alcohol on that video. no mention of drugs.


I knew Carter wasn't innocent.

I will DM the clip to Jermaine later today. And ask him to retract his public support

Thank Goodness, the Casey Anthony Jury just came back with a verdict so that new Aaron Carter clip will be ignored by the press.

But we won't let him off that easily.

OK, well I contacted all the ones I was responsible for except the very first one, as the editor email form they have just will not work. I also found the reporter who wrote the one article all the websites were using on twitter and will contact her directly through there if she responds.

Just sent the letters but it seems the Carter story has been deleted from Dabladet.no and some other news agency. Last article is about how much Michaels jacket was sold.

He has said this is not true right? I saw an article - after the paper first wrote about the BS - that Aaron has said this is false!

Indra please read all the other things he is saying on video and audio that we have. _read above and on the other thread. Although Aaron stated the story about him saying MJ gave him cocaine is not true. In reality Aaron has stated very incriminating statements about MJ in the inteview with Daphne .He is not an innocent party as proven by what he is saying. We have video and audo tape of him making these statements. I hope you read the info here and be informed why we are doing this

I included both the English and Polish (thx for the translation to triniti!) versions of our letter in the emails to the polish addresses. The last polish email addy didn't work though, I received a notification of "Delivery to the following recipients failed".

Starpulse only had a feedback form to fill, but it didn't work. I think the message was too long..
And so far I haven't been able to find any email address or contact form at www.3am.co.uk

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:




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.

Done!!! ;)

Ok, I've finally finished. I did not get home until late, so my apologies.

I did run into some problems with the sites. Terra.com does not provide contact info, so I tried to use a comment form instead. They must have a limit on characters per post, because they cut me off midway in the message. :(

With Sodahead I used a comment form on the website, and when I went to publish it, it gave me a 502 error, twice.

I sent an e-mail to AOL music and it returned saying "delivery failed." I tried it again and I'm waiting to see what happens.

I just got an e-mail about two seconds ago, from examiner.com, saying that they have received my ticket, as in, my query. :huh:

This is the translation into Spanish:


Aaron Carter, Carta refutación

El 29 de mayo de 2011, el cantante de pop de los 90s Aaron Carter fue filmado para una entrevista con la 'periodista' independiente y amiga Daphne Barak para la Revista OK! Edición australiana del 27 junio. El artículo y extractos que se han publicado se han difundido rápidamente a través de los medios de comunicación por una razón: Se trata de Michael Jackson.

La amistad del señor Carter, -y usamos esa palabra disipadamente- con el señor Jackson no está en cuestión. Lo que está en cuestionamiento son los elementos en la entrevista sugiriendo que el Sr. Jackson le habría dado Aaron Carter drogas o alcohol, o que él hubiera actuado de manera impropia con él, algo con lo que la Comunidad de Fans Michael Jackson está fuertemente en desacuerdo.

Cualquiera de dichas afirmaciones formuladas por el Sr. Carter pueden ser fácilmente refutadas simplemente haciendo referencia a sus afirmaciones consistentes anteriores. Es bien sabido que el señor Carter había hablado siempre fuertemente sobre la influencia positiva del Sr. Jackson en su vida y trabajo, y había negado rotundamente, que cualquier cosa inapropiada hubiera ocurrido alguna vez entre ellos (Ver entrevista Howard Stern: http://youtu.be/nE2Cq6WGCpk, que incluso es de una fecha tan reciente como 2010).

En varias entrevistas anteriores, incluyendo su entrevista con Howard Stern, a la que hacemos referencia, afirmó que él sólo pasó una noche en Neverland, lo que se produjo con motivo de la fiesta de cumpleaños 45o del Sr. Jackson. En esa noche en particular, el Sr. Carter dijo que durmió en el teatro con Chris Tucker – él en un lado del teatro y el Sr. Tucker en el otro-. Además, el Sr. Carter hizo hincapié en que nunca durmió en una cama con el Sr. Jackson, ni tampoco ingresó en la habitación del Sr. Jackson. Como constancia de hechos: Aaron Carter negó tan categóricamente cualquier conducta impropia en su amistad con el Sr. Jackson, que él fue incluido en la lista de testigos de la defensa en el juicio de 2005.

De hecho, después de tantos años de estar defendiendo a Jackson, a la comunidad de fans le resulta bastante extraño que el Sr. Carter, de repente, otorgue esta entrevista tan inconsistente.

No hay que perder de vista el hecho de que Frank Cascio, quien había mantenido una amistad con Jackson desde su infancia, escribió un tweet en defensa de Jackson el 30 de junio de 2011 en el que afirma lo siguiente: "Yo conocí a Michael por más de 25 años y NUNCA una sola vez usó cocaína o le sugirió a alguien más usar cocaína ¡Nunca!" (http://twitter.com/#!/fdcascio/status/86547254990733312).

El Sr. Cascio y su familia habían sido visitados por el Sr. Jackson regularmente. Además, el Sr. Cascio frecuentó Neverland y había viajado incluso con el Sr. Jackson desde una edad temprana. Además, el Sr. Cascio también asistió a la fiesta en Neverland a la que el señor Carter se refiere.

A la luz de lo anterior y con toda la evidencia innegable, la Comunidad de Fans de Michael Jackson pone en duda el verdadero motivo detrás de este cambio aparente de sentimientos y de historia.

El momento de la entrevista también es muy sospechoso. En junio, mientras que millones de personas alrededor del mundo estaban tristes por la muerte de Jackson, algunos -incluso con una conexión remota a él-, parecieron encontrar una oportunidad ideal para promover su libro, su CD, o un proyecto, o para usar el hecho de haber conocido al Sr. Jackson como una oportunidad para conseguir promoción gratis y obtener beneficios económicos. El Sr. Carter actualmente tiene una deuda de USD $1.000.000 con el IRS que no puede ser minimizada. Tampoco se puede ignorar que está promoviendo el lanzamiento inminente de nueva música, así como un reality show. La voluntad del Sr. Aaron Carter, de convertirse en protagonista al subirse al carro anterior, aunque es bastante decepcionante, no es sorprendente.

La historia difamatoria publicada por OK! Magazine, apareció el 15 de junio lo que llevó a algunos preocupados fans de Jackson a inmediatamente buscar a Aaron Carter a través de Twitter, sólo para ser rechazados e ignorados por las últimas no menos de dos semanas. Una declaración oficial y fuerte negación obviamente hubiera detenido esta calumnia desde sus inicios. De hecho, esto es lo que una persona honorable que quiere y respeta a un difunto amigo y mentor hubiera hecho. Por desgracia, la especulación repugnante e insinuaciones han sido permitidas a quedarse. Como resultado, la única persona que ha sido totalmente dañada en esta debacle espantoso es el Sr. Jackson - un blanco fácil – ya que lamentablemente no está aquí para defenderse.

Ahora que esta historia ha sido ampliamente difundida, el Sr. Carter, a través de su representante, ha emitido un comunicado diciendo que él fue mal citado en el artículo. Sin embargo aún en los extractos editados de la entrevista demuestran claramente, que el Sr. Carter hábilmente y apropósito respondió a las preguntas de una manera ambigua lo que ha permitido la especulación y ha dado lugar a insinuaciones aparentes. En consecuencia, la opinión pública ha sido totalmente engañada.

La negación de Carter a través de TMZ, el 1 de julio de 2011 está ahora siendo ampliamente reportada, sin embargo, aún queda mucho por hacer. Idealmente, el Sr. Carter tiene que exigir una retractación completa a la revista OK!, si de hecho ésta tergiversó lo que realmente dijo. Sin embargo, como la calumnia se continúa desarrollando, es cada vez es más claro que el campamento de Carter ha visto los beneficios de la vinculación de su nombre de una manera negativa con el Sr. Jackson y está aprovechando al máximo el frenesí y la cobertura (inter) nacional de los medios de comunicación.

Daphne Barak también ha tenido un pasado muy dudoso. Ella es conocida por previamente haber "inventado" historias.

A Grace Rwaramba, quien había sido niñera de los niños de Jackson desde hace varios años, se le acercó y se le amistó Daphne Barak, con el único fin de aprovecharse de ella con la esperanza de encontrar información sobre Michael Jackson. En una historia escrita por Mallika Chopra y publicada en The Huffington Post, el 28 de junio de 2009, Mallika, dijo lo siguiente: "Yo fui testigo de que Daphne actuaba como una amiga mientras trataba de obtener información de Grace sobre sus conversaciones con miembros de la familia Jackson y amigos acerca de su muerte... Yo me encontré con que Daphne en realidad había escrito un artículo lleno de citas de Grace para una revista sensacionalista. (En una búsqueda rápida de sus otros trabajos, no sorprende que muestren que ella hizo una presentación reciente sobre Amy Winehouse.) Las citas de Grace están siendo recogidas por otros diarios sensacionalistas y han encontrando su camino en más revistas y artículos. (La Revista People también cuenta algunas imprecisiones hoy, tales como la afirmación de que Grace bombeó el estómago a Michael en varias ocasiones. Para el registro, Grace nunca bombeó el estómago de Michael. Ella no tiene ni la menor idea de cómo podría hacer tal cosa)... " (http://tinyurl.com/nbqshd "Chupasangres y el mundo de Michael Jackson”)

Daphne Barak también estuvo en el centro de la controversia en referencia a una entrevista con Sanam Bhutto. Un artículo publicado por SouthAsiaWatch el 24 de marzo 2009 hace una crónica de su periodismo falso.

Este dice, "Daphne Barak [...] ella ha estado endilgando a famosos y familias notables del mundo desde hace años. Su vida se hace mediante ofrecer entrevistas "exclusivas", chismes brillantes, y manufacturando rumores e insinuaciones en todo momento. Ella es a menudo vista entrevistando a miembros de las familias en crisis, aprovechándose de su dolor y su necesidad de esperanza, con el fin de alimentar su motivación personal por la fama, acceso, y notoriedad. Daphne retrata y empaña la imagen de Bhutto al revelar o descaradamente fabricar detalles que no pueden ser verificados de forma independiente sobre la vida de Bhutto... cualquier referencia a Bhutto o a Pakistán que ella escribe deben ser tomados como cerca de la ficción o nada menos que una completa fabricación... En más recientes noticias de Pakistán, Daphne Barak ha provocado a la nación de Pakistán y a su pueblo un grave perjuicio por la fabricación de una noticia con "declaraciones" de la hermana de Benazair Bhutto, Sanam, en relación con el presidente de Pakistán, Asif Zardari. Mientras que el periodismo sesgado puede ser tolerado en muchos círculos, Daphne Barak cruzó la línea completa ficción. Sanam Bhutto, indignada y angustiada por las mentiras que se le atribuyen, denunció enérgicamente la ficción producida por Daphne Barak, a través de impresos y de video". El artículo también menciona cómo ella se “amistó” (Se asoció informalmente amistosamente, con fines desviados) con los padres de Amy Winehouse "alimentándose de su dolor y preocupación por su hija" con el fin de conseguir una historia sobre Amy Winehouse. (http://tinyurl.com/3luq3ge)

Sus métodos han sido consistentes: amistarse con una persona con el propósito de entrevistarse con ellos de modo que ella puede darle un giro a lo dicho en la entrevista. ¿Es esto lo que pasó con Aaron Carter? Hay que tomar en cuenta su tweet sobre él del 29 de mayo:

daphnebarak Daphne Barak
Muy contenta, mi amigo Aaron Carter está acompañándome, para una gala benéfica en Marbella. Lo que es un lugar perfecto, para poner en marcha ¡¿Su próximo disco?!
29 de mayo
(http://twitter.com/daphnebarak/status/74919156427915264)

Esto dice mucho acerca de la ética de la Sra. Barak y sus valores como periodista. También dice mucho del carácter tanto de la Sra. Barak como del señor Carter. Así como ellos y otras personas que han estado involucradas están interesados, ellos han sido capaces de elevar sus perfiles sobre la espalda del Sr. Jackson.

Además, es muy preocupante que vivimos en una época en que nuestros medios de comunicación están dispuestos a “a ciegas” copiar y pegar una historia sin antes verificar su exactitud y veracidad. Muy pocos medios de comunicación hicieron mención de las negaciones anteriores de Carter, por no hablar de la reputación de la entrevistadora. Aunque la historia calumniosa sobre esta entrevista tuvo su origen en la Revista OK!, que ciertamente no es conocida por ser una publicación de buena reputación, no ha tardado en que más de 150 medios de comunicación copiaran y pegaran la historia como un hecho y la dejaran correr. Esto se vuelve aún más preocupante cuando esta práctica es adoptada por medios de comunicación que se supone informan historias reales, como CBSnews, USA Today y CNN. Es frustrantemente evidente que los hechos no son una gran preocupación para los medios de comunicación, lo cual es lamentable.

Ahora que algunos aspectos de la entrevista han sido negados, sólo podemos esperar que habrá un proceso de selección más riguroso antes de que las historias se transmitan o publiquen, sobre todo cuando la fuente es un tabloide (Diario o medio sensacionalista), y el autor tiene una reputación dudosa (Ver http://youtu.be/x9Dz7rs8VfA).

Hacemos un llamado a todos los fans de Michael Jackson a boicotear la revista y a expresar su desacuerdo con los editores de la revista OK, así como su preocupación a Daphne Barak (la autora). Los admiradores también tienen que dejar saber a sus fuentes de noticias e información que ya no están interesados en historias salaces no corroboradas

Michael Jackson fue difamado y calumniado en vida. Sus fans están comprometidos y decididos a ver que esta difamación no continúe en su muerte.

I just read that Aaron Carter will be on E! News tomorrow. Will a copy of the letter be sent to them if Carter doesn't retract the Barack statements? Also, will there be any further action if Carter repeats the lies on camera or should we let the story fade out of the headlines? With the media's short attention span, they have moved on to Casey Anthony.
