I notice from headlines that the Mirror is declaring these are "new sex attack claims".
Dear God when will these people either (a) get a conscience or (b) do the right thing and report fairly???
This is all ridiculous! I can't believe it's 2019 and Michael is still going through this ish! There have to be some sort of defamation laws being broken. I think I saw someone said since the film maker is British and Britain has defamation laws, can the estate do something do to that. I find it crazy that there is nothing they can do! Argh! I'm so angry!

It's easy to make a quick buck out of a mega celebrity that's dead and can't defend himself.

This is absolutely rediculous.. and it pushes me off even more that we've heard of these shows that supposed to be released for years it defense of mike and no news yet this comes out of no where..
dmehta;4236587 said:You’d hope not, but no doubt it’ll get plenty of publicity before it’s shown - tv commercials etc. Not sure if you’re from the UK or not, but channel 4 is one of the most watched tv channels here.
The problem as ever with all of this is that the casual observer doesn’t know the history of these allegations and the people involved, so they will just accept it as fact.
dmehta;4236598 said:Unfortunately the money follows scandal. Channel 4 or others are not going to commission a show defending Mike. It’s the titilation that gets viewers and media attention.
The only slightly comforting thing here is that when Wade first made his allegation, a lot of people shrugged it off because it was so preposterous and because of his past denials and defending MJ under oath.
However, the Wade lawsuit against the Estate got almost no coverage here in the UK so people watching this documentary will be seeing it from a position of ignorance and more likely to believe it, not knowing the background.
It's almost surreal to me that people actually want Michael Jackson to be a pedophile.
