I highly doubt his kids visit this thread.
Thank you for that.
I certainly didn't start this thread to hurt anyone. Just a discussion about the show.

Well said, maybe I shouldn't have started the thread but I saw the documentary and was curious as to what others thought.

I remember watching something about his childhood and many other child stars.
I can't imagine being the kind of parent to exploit my children.
There are many parents that exploit their children for the sake of wealth, or other such things that many are not even aware of. Such as babysitting and other things that take the childrenís childhood away when those parents should be nurturing those childhood memories to begin with.

There are so many that expect more from children than they can give - Iíve seen it with my own eyes and didnít like what I saw.

And I can understand the need to know what otherís think with regards to this, so I have no objections, however, I think it would be more wise if you changed this thread with another name so you get perspectives on a much wider range than MJ.

I only am making a suggestion here.
And thanks.

I knew the name was about the show. It is all good and as famous as a person is when they have kids they have to suffer the repercussions that goes with that fame and that means the bad with the good.

I don't have HBO so I won't be watching the documentary but I have read about it
Here's part of the 60 minutes interview in 2009.

There is nothing wrong with the name, good discussion and on a documentary.  If someone thinks that someone's kids is going to have their nose out of joint, well that's the price of having famous parents and the kids are adults now.

No, stay!! You made a suggestion. Maybe the title could be changed to Michael Jackson's documentary or the Documentary on Michael Jackson.

That's the beauty of it here, if you don't like a thread or post you don't have to join in.
I personaly see nothing wrong with this thread and find it interesting.

Itís no big deal. You asked for an opinion, I gave one that you said was moot, so I moved on. Thereís no point in continuation of the discussion on my part if I brought nothing to the table, as stated by yourself. So what would be the point?

The corporate news agencies (that the government pays for with our money) donít want you to see whatís actually happening within our government. So to keep us ignorant they try getting you to talk about anything else so they can blindside us into thinking we have everything under control.

A tactical weapon being used against us so they can consolidate their power.

And it is we the people that they should fear, and will once people see where they went wrong by voting for corporate swine.

Even the local news does not report the truth. They do half truths or innuedos and think that is the truth.

I mostly concur, with the exception that those in news know much more about whatís going on but are kept silent in fear for their job. And an example of this is when the Bush administration (JR) was only blathering on about letting oil and gas and coal companies provide for our electric power grid when General Electric, the largest corporate conglomerate, and other big corporations wanted nuclear energy into the market, but Bush and Cheney wasnít having any of it. So, GE was sitting on a segment of news that shouldíve been reported, but wasnít ... that is, until they went after the Bush administration with the Downing Street Memo.

Thatís when the Bush administration did a complete 360 and started preaching how much we desperately needed nuclear power.

Just a helpful hint.
