Hi everyone. I just replied to several emails acknowledging that you have been added to the mailing list. We are still working on getting the letter templates finalized and some of the processes ironed out. Please bear with us. We're almost there. I've also have seen the links to the stories that you've included in your emails. We will be reviewing them and we'll be in touch soon. Thank you for your patience. It will be worth it. We want to do this right for Michael. :yes:

Peace, hugs and love.

Re: MJJC Legacy Project - E-Mail Alerting System

Michael"s Army of Love need to be relentless with those people. We need to bombard their emails, fax and phones by the thousands. All day and often. So much so that they won't be able to take care of their business because everything will be jammed up by us.

We NEED to win this battle for Michael.

This is gonna be fun. I'm ready.

Re: MJJC Legacy Project - E-Mail Alerting System

It looks like Im the member already even thou I havent sent any e-mails to anyone. :lol: Well, its ok and I can be there whatever it is. But I dont know how active I can be. Its now different without Michael. But he will be in my heart forever, he was such a nice man, the nicest one in the world. I miss his kindness, I dont care if he had been dancing and performing but he was just so kind and so much fun as a person. Like a great example of the human being.

Hey, Topflux - there is a difference between being Legacy member (purple banner)and being a part of the Legacy Project team. If you want to receive the email alert, just email us at legacymjjc@hotmail.com and let us know your name, username at MJJC and your email address.

Re: MJJC Legacy Project - E-Mail Alerting System

We wanted to explain in a bit more detail what it is we envision and how we plan to approach the horrible or untruthful media reports.

Scope
The scope of the e-mail alerting system should be about media reports that are misleading in the information provided over Michael. There should be facts, documents, books, photo's or videos that can be referred to that refute the wrong, incorrect or incomplete information.
The media reports must be in the English language and current. These should not be personal blogs. Nor should they be only opinions that differ from ours, such as 'weird art'.

Purpose
The purpose of the e-mail system is to get the truth out there and to change the perception of the media and public by showing who Michael really was.

Methodology
We will work with templates, one for the negative media reports and one for the positive media reports and they are being worked on and finalized shortly. Members of the e-mail alert group can use this letter as their basis or add information.
We will not bombard, as in spamming, media houses by sending the same e-mail multiple times per person. Each member of this team will send one e-mail or different e-mails, worded differently if they are inspired, to the media house or editor.
We will refrain from lowering ourselves to their level by being inaccurate, hateful and disrespectful to others and we will at all time refrain from using foul language.
This means we WILL stay polite, correct and respectful, and come with facts to refute the story at hand in an almost emotionally detached manner.


Facebook and YouTube
With Facebook groups and YouTube videos we will have a slightly different approach. In Facebook there is a report functionality in the lower left corner. You need to select a reason and then elaborate further on this reason in the free space box.'
For YouTube videos, they can be reported when you click on 'mark' or 'flag' and select the best reason and of course you can give them one-star ratings.
Even if you don't want to join the e-mail alerting team for your own reasons you could still help by flagging inappropiate videos.

Status and Closed Items
We will let MJJC members know of the status of certain actions and also of items that are closed.

Holidays
From December 18 until Janaury 3 we will have a holiday break as e-mail alert group, but do continue to Pm us or post in Enough is Enough and The Fans take action about the stories you feel action needs to be taken on, and we will take them up after the holidays.
Other holiday periods will be mentioned in a timely fashion.

Re: MJJC Legacy Project - E-Mail Alerting System

A huge part of preserving, honoring and protecting Michael's legacy is to combat one by one, any media outlets that refuse to portray him with the respect and dignity that he deserves. For a long time now we have been outraged by the disgusting lies and half truths used to promote the media's agenda in bringing down Michael and his legacy. Now is the time we need to act!

The MJJC Legacy Project team has initiated an email alert system and we want you to join us in campaigning for truthful, fair and positive reporting to keep his legacy alive for now and for generations to come, so everybody can discover the magic that is Michael!

So how will it work?
You can get involved by alerting Memefan, Windy09 or MJJLaugh when you come across something in the media you think is an unfair, unaccurate account of anything to with Michael Jackson.
An email alert will then be sent out on a mailing list to everyone who signs up here so we can bombard these outlets with well written, non-hysterical, comprehensive complaints that we hope will make a change to how Michael is portrayed by the general media.
Similarly, if we come across positive media coverage, we will send letters of thanks and praise, in the hope this will encourage publications to do this again in the future.
Contact details of the media house and template letters will be sent out in the emails which you may feel free to add to or elaborate on, but we cannot stress enough that we want to come across as sophisticated and intelligent so as to be taken seriously. We will also be available to help you or look over emails before you send them if you would like!

How do I get involved?
Simply send us an email to legacymjjc@hotmail.com telling us your name, MJJC username and e-mail address to be added to the mailing list. In doing so you are signing up to be alerted when we as a community feel the media has reported unfairly towards Michael and his legacy inviting you to join us in action against it. It is time we stood up for Michael as a group strong enough to fight and make Michael proud.

Environmental Tips
-Purchase lesser used items (lawnmover, large ladder) together with neighbors
- Buy products in bulk rather than single prepackaged items
- Use pump spray and stick deoderant rather than the pressurized pack spray cans
- Recycle old pillows; use the stuffing (after washing?) for toys or throw cushions, use the stuffing to make a new, soft pillow firm
- Consider purchasing fair trade products when you do your holiday shopping


None of us can predict when the causes we support will capture the public imagination, and our once-lonely quests become popular crusades. - Paul Rogat Loeb

My company has a txt service that allows for us to send one txt to multiple (even thousands of people) at once. If this would be helpful, I'm more than willing to get it working for us for free. I'll do whatever I can to help preserve Mike's legacy.

Re: MJJC Legacy - Media Advocacy E-Mail Alert System

Hi Maria MJ, did you send an email to legacymjjc@hotmail.com to be added to the distribution list? I just checked and I don't think I see you there. If you haven't please do so and we'll add you to the distribution. The same applies to anyone else who is interested.

Also, here is the last email that was sent out to all the members on the the list. I think it's important for everyone else to see as well, so you know there is work being done and what the status is.

From:

Hello everyone,

First, we want to thank everyone who signed up for the E-mail alerts for the MJJC Legacy Project. You're willingness to help us preserve Michael's Legacy is very much appreciated. The team has been working as quickly as possible to get all of our processes in place. Also, we have been looking at some of the stories that have been presented. Please know that while we would like to address every story, it's not possible to do so. We have to select the stories where we can have the most impact with our responses. We are almost ready to send out the first set of alerts. Please be on the look out for the email.

We have been working on drafting letters for a few stories. Once the letters are finalized (just about there), an email will be sent to everyone on the list and will include the following:

  1. Story to be targeted
  2. Reference to story (website link, publication information, etc.)
  3. Letter template (either a form letter or an actual letter from one of the team members that want to participate) Regardless of which one is included, you still will need to replace or populate your information where appropriate. You can tweak as you see fit.
  4. Additional information relevant to respective story.
Note: The objective is to represent ourselves as professional, respectful and non-emotional when addressing any of these stories. Having said that, there may be cases where we have to appeal to the media outlet on an emotional level on certain stories. We will evaluate each story and determine the best approach on our response. Please note that we do not want to bring any negative light on us or the MJJCommunity. If you have questions on whether or not you should include something, please feel free to email myself (windy09, MJJLaugh or Memefan) and we can provide input.

Also, please refer to post #44 (posted by MJJLaugh) for more detailed information about how the email alerting system will work.

http://www.mjjcommunity.com/forum/showpost.php?p=2456023&postcount=44

Again, we thank you and let's do our best to preserve Michael's legacy.

Peace, love, smiles and Michael forever!

Hi TheChosenOne and MJJLaugh,

Here is the last email that was sent out to all the members on the the list.

Thank you Legacy team for the first template for Youtube and Inside Edition.

It felt REALLY good sending it.

But like I said somewhere here, I knew that the media bashing would start again as soon as they were done destroying Tiger Woods.

I knew that they would use the FBI files and take things out of context and for every ONE word of truth they would mention "molestation charges" a thousand time to make sure it's imprinted in people's minds.

I know you're supposed to be on Holiday break but there's no rest for the wary. Duty calls.

You're welcome riviera1992. Yes we are on holiday break; however, when I saw this story today, I felt the immediate need to do something. So I will propose the idea of addressing this story to the team. I know not all of us are available until after the first of the year. At a minimum I'll work on drafting a template as well as doing my own research. I agree with your statements 100%. I was seeing some good things reported, but of course that wouldn't last long. Stay tuned....

Can we try phone calls?

The email alerts do include phone calls and regular mail. Whatever you prefer.

Here's one we were sent last week:

Dear MJJC Members,

Please find a letter enclosed that is directed to Inside Edition for a story they reported regarding Michael’s commissioned artwork being made public back on December 10, 2009. Some sensationalistic, inaccurate and bias remarks were made during the reporting of the story, which is what we would like to address in our letter. We are appealing to their Journalism Code of Ethics in this letter.

Link to story, http://www.insideedition.com/news.aspx?storyID=3743

Feel free to tweak as you need to; however, please keep in mind that the information included sets the context of the letter. Also, please remember we want to represent ourselves with integrity and respect. Please insure you update the date as appropriate and add your name and email address. Also, please change the name


Here is the contact information for Inside Edition. Although, it would be fast to receive via email, I’ve also included the physical address as well.

E-mail us at: email@insideedition.com

Call us at: (212) 817-5555

Write to us at:

* I agree that anything I submit may be used by Inside Edition in any manner (including, but not limited to, on this web site or on television) and that I have read and agree to the Terms of Use, which governs my submission.

If you have any questions, please email us at legacymjjc@hotmail.com. As Elmira said in her letter once again, we are very grateful to see so many people sign up and together we can make a difference. It's all for L.O.V.E.

Thank you very much in advance!
Wishing you all Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year!

TEMPLATE


December 22, 2009

Dear Inside Edition:

This letter is in response to a story reported on your show on Thursday, December 10, 2009 regarding Michael Jackson’s commissioned artwork being made public.


The reason for my letter is that I have found that some of the references made in this story were of a sensationalistic, inaccurate or bias nature. Some statements from the story are noted below. The words or statements in question are denoted in bold.


“Now this bizarre painting is being shown in public for the first time, along with dozens of others that the king of pop personally commissioned from artist David Nordahl.”


“We asked psychologist Dr. Jeffrey Gardere about the bizarre Jackson paintings.”
"In some ways, I think we might be able to read into this that there are issues of sexuality here…of exploration of sexuality with children," says Gardere.”


As per the Journalism Code of Ethics, some of the common elements include truthfulness, accuracy, objectivity, fairness and public accountability. Additionally reliability and public accountability are three of its most valuable assets with respect to standards and reputation of a news organization. An organization earns and maintains a strong reputation, through consistent implementation of ethical standards, which influences its position within the public and industry.


I state the above, because the number of stories published that are inaccurate, sensationalistic, biased, not thoroughly researched; that lack objectivity, integrity and human dignity have overshadowed the positive stories that should be reported about Michael Jackson. Additionally, opinions are represented as facts or facts are selectively omitted when reporting the story. Any opportunity where a positive story can be reported is dismissed in favor of reporting a story that is geared toward increasing ratings; in other words, what will sell the most? This story falls into the sensationalistic category, no doubt. It begs the question if the doctor who was quoted in the story had researched how the paintings came to be before making the statement as referenced above. Did he obtain any facts behind the commission of the paintings from the artist himself, David Nordahl? The statements below are taken from a USA Today interview with Mr. Nordahl, published on August 23, 2009. The following statements were made by Mr. Nordahl’s regarding the commission of the paintings and his personal thoughts about Michael.


http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/MichaelJackson/story?id=8385630&page=1


“While visiting Steven Spielberg's office, Jackson had admired one of Nordahl's paintings of Army troops invading an Apache camp as a young corporal shielded two Indian children. Now the singer was reaching out to the painter. For art lessons.”
"He asked if I taught drawing and painting," says Nordahl, whose realist oils of 19th-century Apaches are highly prized. "I told him I didn't, but that I'd think about it. I was really busy."
“Their hour-long conversation sparked a close friendship and working partnership that led Nordahl to abandon renown in the art world for a cloistered vocation as Jackson's portraitist. From 1988 to 2005, Nordahl completed thousands of drawings and roughly a dozen epic commissions, seven of which were among 2,000 Jackson items in Julien's authorized auction, which the singer sued to stop last spring.”
“Jackson demonstrated talent but was stretched too thin to pursue visual arts. Instead, the two began hatching ideas for Nordahl to paint. The artist conceived the inaugural work, Playmates for a Lonely Child, a 41-inch-square oil of Jackson in a sylvan storybook scene. Next Nordahl embarked on a far bolder statement, Field of Dreams, a 36-by-104-inch oil study for an unfinished work that would have measured 12 by 38 feet.”
"I think what Jackson saw in David was a complete artist," Dewey says. "He was a perfectionist. He choreographed everything. Jackson also may have seen his commitment to family. David primarily painted the Apache people's culture and lifeways, but he painted a lot of children, not just warriors. And he painted animals beautifully, especially horses."


Mr. Nordahl observations on Michael Jackson:


"I always thought of him as normal," he says. "He's the most thoughtful, respectful person I've ever met. In 20 years, I never heard him raise his voice."
“What Nordahl saw in Jackson was a wounded and misunderstood genius who felt spiritually obligated to help children.”
“Though Jackson was acquitted in his 2005 child sexual abuse trial, it "broke his spirit," Nordahl says.”Michael would never molest a child. He always felt so bad for kids who were mistreated or sick. He spent so much time with critically ill kids. If a mother called about a dying child somewhere, he'd jump on a plane.”
"People talked about Neverland being his private amusement park. It was always meant for kids. The last time I was at the ranch, they put up a big Sony JumboTron across from a condo building for sick children, so if kids woke up at night, cartoons would be on."


I would like to believe that your organization is serious about procuring and reporting information with honesty, accuracy and integrity and that you are interested in upholding the Journalism Code of Ethics. Therefore, I respectfully request the following:


I encourage you to read the above referenced article in USA Today and do some additional research about the artist, David Nordahl. Mr. Nordahl is known for including children in his paintings, thus this was not a new concept.
Revisit the story and retract the false and unfair information reported on that specific episode regarding Michael Jackson. Remove the sensationalistic references about what people think Michael’s motives were.
Refrain from publishing information that is not verifiable and is derogatory regarding Michael Jackson.
Research and report on the positive information regarding Michael’s character, contributions in music and philanthropy.
No longer report on information that is legacy, not accurate and surpassed its relevance. Let it be.


Michael Jackson’s music and humanitarian efforts were many and should be the focus of his legacy. His contributions have been overlooked due to the sensationalistic and inaccurate stories that have been and are currently being reported. It is my hope that your organization is interested in aligning with the Journalism Code of Ethics and you wish to only report a story honestly with accuracy and integrity. It is important that Michael Jackson’s legacy be preserved in a positive light as he was a caring, generous, gifted and loving human being who only saw what good could be done in this world in light of the obstacles he encountered.


Thank you in advance for your consideration in this matter.


Sincerely,


Name
