Martin Bashir 'deceived and induced' Princess Diana's brother to get bombshell Panorama interview, BBC report finds

The former BBC reporter has said forging bank statements was a "stupid thing to do" and "an action I deeply regret".

Michael tried to get people to see how underhanded Martin Bashir was, but most refused to believe him.

Indeed. Even though the Take 2 special - which drew high ratings - came with several receipts, they largely just ignored all of it.

I came here to vent about this whole 'Bashir unfaired Princess Di'.

I read one article that tracked Bashir's career. When talking about the documentary, the writer referenced Michael's 'ardent fans' that decried its bias. But then the writer tacked on that the LN doc more than proved the legitimacy LWMJ. As EW says, the media is not yet ready to look at Michael and how he was treated in a new way. I hope that day will come soon.

How many years ago was this? ALL PARENTS make mistakes, the ONLY difference was MJ made mistake in PULBIC. My mom was sitting by and I took a doll and stuck in the OPEN FIREPLACE and went running with it when I was 5 years. So again, All parents are guilty even the parents who act self righteous and judge about MJ about what he did. I had one relative who went on & on about MJ making that mistake in 2002 and I had to remind her she let TWO KIDS stay at home ALONE while she went to the CLUB to party. She got mad with me but I had to show her "if a camera was running to catch what she did in the 80's, she would be judged as well. It shut her up.
Wow. Leaving your kids alone in the house to go to a Club and party is bad. We're the Kids young and close in age or were they significantly far apart in age like one was about 13 years apart? Because leaving two young kids who are like 5 and 7 alone to go party in a Club is REALLY, really, REALLY, bad, but leaving say a 13 and a baby alone isn't TOO bad as some 13 year olds are already Parents and can be a Babysitter. I do remember a Husband being LIVID that his Wife left their 7 year old Son asleep to go run to the grocery store and was gone for about 30 minutes. Repliers were LIVID with her too because they felt a 7 year old was too old to be left alone. Another Poster ACTUALLY defended her saying something like,"I grew up in the 70's and my Mother would leave me alone for a quick run to the grocery store at around age 7. I was a mature 7 year old and knew better than to turn on the stove or open the door for strangers, so it wasn't all that bad. If the 7 year old is mature, a quick run to the grocery store isn't all that bad....

If only jordan chandler would come out
Jordan Chandler already came out and admitted his Dad, Evan Chandler put him up to claim that Michael touched him inappropriately as a scam to get money from Michael. . He recalls that Michael DIDN'T touch him inappropriately at all during his stay at Neverland Ranch.. I also recall that Evan drugged Jordan with a dental anesthesia substance that gave false memories. Too bad Jordan came out after Michael was already dead, not before. The sad thing is, Jordan was already an ADULT when Michael died. He could have and should have come forward when Michael was still alive.

I think ABC News made its biggest mistake in hiring Bashir to its payroll, giving him reports on 20/20 and Nightline.

What did he do for them that couldn't have been done by Brian Ross, for example?

Well, Geraldo is very hit and miss to me. Sure, he did that brilliant 20/20 investigative piece on Elvis' death, but this is the same guy that did "Al Capone's vault" and invited neo-Nazis on his talk show. He also tends to get somewhat unglued in the presence of his Fox News colleagues and can go to some disgusting places.

About Geraldo, I like that he gave a look of pure disgust when Charles Manson stuck out his tongue playfully like an immature 5 year old when he was interviewing him. You caused multiple murders and you have the audacious nerve to stick out your tongue playfully like an immature 5 year old? Geraldo's disgusted reaction was the right reaction.
