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.

I watched the documentary and was pretty shocked at the allegations. Why does all this stuff surface once someone is dead and not able to defend themselves. Innocent until proven guilty! I would not like to say whether these acts took place or not. So on that basis, I shall not stop listening to his fantastic music. Thanks, Jem.

I agree with you, Jem. 🙂

I agree but the famous are always done that way, Elvis, Prince, Michael Jackson, Robin Williams, Paul Walker, the list ho3s on and on. It is ridiculous but the media has always done the famous that way.

Exactly, he was brilliant
Of course in my opinion, I thought he was guilty from the start but he was found not guilty and that is how our justice system works. So I didn't lose any sleep over. Kinda like the OJ trials.

But to come out now .... I thought that was pretty lousy.
And for parents to come out about how they used MJ .... the whole documentary was sad.

Unfortunately if you want the limelight, all the burn goes with it.
I think people forget that they are human like the rest of us an have problems and are not perfect.

Michael Jackson paid a lot of money to make sure all that stayed hidden.
I agree with enjoying his music if you like it and I do.

I've always thought Michael Jackson was a creative genius. In addition, I've always felt that he was denied any type of normal childhood. After reading lots of things about his childhood and how he was treated, I felt very sorry for him. I believed that aside from his musical talent he never actually matured mentally beyond a child.

After all the comments regarding Leaving Neverland and the many texts I received from friends, I decided I'd watch the program. So, I set my DVR to record it from On Demand. Tonight I watched Part One. In the beginning, I felt even more sorry for him than I had in the past. As the program continued, I honestly got sick to my stomach. I still feel like he was a genius. I still feel very sorry for him and the torment he obviously felt. However, I'm now very angry that nobody got that man/child the help he needed and deserved. I believe with all my heart that a lot of people deserve to be in prison for protecting his sexual endeavors and allowing him to prey on young boys.

There's no amount of money that can excuse what happened to that man or the young boys he manipulated. I'm not sure if I'll watch Part Two but I'm thinking I probably will. My God, those boys were children unable to even perform sex much less understand it. That's my take and I don't know how I'll feel if I watch Part Two. Further, I don't know that I'll ever be able to listen to him again without cringing just a little and possibly crying over such a lost soul.

Good post Icno !
But weirdly I don't cringe when seeing him or listening to his music? The thing is, I can't get my head around him doing such things.

I do love his music but he had a sad childhood.
I think all child stars have issues.
Too young to handle it and greedy parents ...  too sad

Yes you are dead right there! His father sounded like terrible man, the way he used to treat him. It is very sad indeed.

Itís terrible to see children exploited for the soul purpose of fortune. Very sad.
