Re: Sundance Festival 2019 Carrying MJ Molestation Doc

Emailed Channel 4 with a quick question wondering why they're giving by law, false accusations, a platform.

Because they want views. That's why.

Re: Sundance Festival 2019 Carrying MJ Molestation Doc

Dear Mr .

Thank you for contacting Channel 4 Viewer Enquiries regarding Leaving Neverland.

The film, Leaving Neverland, examines the allegations of sexual abuse of young boys made against Michael Jackson and carries testimony from men who speak about their childhood experiences with Mr Jackson. A version of the film is being screened at the Sundance Film Festival later this month. A broadcast date has not yet been fixed for Channel 4.

Channel 4 has a remit to deliver high quality news and current affairs, and an excellent track record for investigative documentary journalism. It is in the public interest to allow these individuals to tell of their interactions with Michael Jackson. He was of course a high-profile figure whose work still entertains millions of people but who was previously accused of child sex abuse.

We have however logged your comment with regards to the screening of this documentary.


Thank you again for taking the time to contact us. We appreciate all feedback from our viewers; complimentary or otherwise.

Regards,

Peter Lynas

If they would have done as much as a quick Google search they'd know that Wade is a laughing stock and his claims were dismissed. Investigative journalism indeed.

What are the chances of it not being about Robson and Safechuck? And say.... Chandler and Arvizo? Or aren't they allowed to by law? And if not them, chances of it being "new" accusers?

Ok, I want to know will they expose these guys after all is said and how they defended MJ most of their lives since they known him. We can find this.

Re: Sundance Festival 2019 Carrying MJ Molestation Doc

It is absolutely NOT in the public interest to present their testimony completely and utterly unchallenged.

Why on earth would a channel that prides itself on investigative journalism give a platform to money hungry fraudsters.

Disastrous news, frankly.

Because Film 4 and Sundance are attached to this, it can't be easily dismissed like so many others.

I find it very weird how they're using that photo and putting it front and center to promote the festival. As if they had it out for him.

It's good to see that all the replies are people calling Sundance out for their disgusting choice to show this film.

And I hope media people who know these clowns who did not even cover their cases because they knew Wade and james were full of it will speak out as well. This producer and anyone who show this trash will expose them as fake media and trash.

Re: Sundance Festival 2019 Carrying MJ Molestation Doc

I've emailed back, who knows how it will result but I do feel that they have made a great error in stating 'high quality news'. This is a baseless accusation that was thrown out of court. Will it be presented as such?

Re: Sundance Festival 2019 Carrying MJ Molestation Doc

It is clear that is it Wade and James.

At least that's clear then. Absolutely ridiculous. So these losers lost their lawsuits because the judge dismissed it and so they try it this way, pathetic. So unless these losers have new "evidence" or claims it will basically what the lawsuits were all about? Only now the public gets to hear about it?

It's sad that Sundance is doing this. A channel known for airing trash docus, that is nothing new, but Sundance?

The estate etc. can do nothing. Those who think he is a pedophile have already made up their minds. The fact that this is getting so much of a reaction is what they all want.

I do not think this is getting a great reaction. At this point, you either love MJ or not and I have not heard nothing on all that radio stations here only see when I google MJ's name and even the comment boxes or empty, no responses, etc Some sites have even pushed the story we down off their sites (I do not hit on links). I hope this trash just get pulled from the Festival. if these people want to hang their repuation on Wade and James, that is their lost. It is too much info, tape footage, courtdocs, etc to show Wade and James are full of it.

From the Estate of Michael Jackson:

Earlier today certain media ran an item relating to a film included in the lineup of the Sundance Film Festival. The Estate issued the following statement to media reporting the story: &#8220;This is yet another lurid production in an outrageous and pathetic attempt to exploit and cash in on Michael Jackson. Wade Robson and James Safechuck have both testified under oath that Michael never did anything inappropriate toward them. Safechuck and Robson, the latter a self-proclaimed &#8216;master of deception&#8217;, filed lawsuits against Michael&#8217;s Estate, asking for millions of dollars. Both lawsuits were dismissed. This so-called &#8216;documentary&#8217; is just another rehash of dated and discredited allegations. It&#8217;s baffling why any credible filmmaker would involve himself with this project.&#8221; Unfortunately, anyone can release a documentary and they do not have to secure permission to do so. The only time the Estate has any potential recourse is when a documentary or other film uses intellectual property such as music or video that is owned by the Estate and is not protected under &#8220;fair use&#8221; claims, which of course the Estate is monitoring. You may recall the Estate filed litigation against Disney earlier this year for violating its intellectual property rights.
As the Estate said, the individuals featured in this documentary have had their claims rejected in court.
Furthermore, Michael was declared innocent in the criminal case against him. No documentary can change that.

Re: Sundance Festival 2019 Carrying MJ Molestation Doc

Hopefully with enough negative publicity the Sundance Festival and Channel 4 will reconsider screening this. Wishful thinking maybe, but we can only try.
