The autopsy postponed. The fight for Michael only starting

January 1, 2011

The cancellation – or rather postponement – of the Discovery autopsy spectacle is incredibly good news for us and all those who participated in the protest should be happy and proud they’ve lived up to the honorable name of Michael Jackson’s supporters, but … but I have a feeling that it is only just the beginning.

There is something meaningful in the fact that the program was postponed but not cancelled altogether. The wording provided by the Discovery can of course be a simple way to save their face but there are numerous signs to suggest that it is not only that. The media seems to have decided to turn this situation into a public opinion poll where the final decision of airing or not airing the show will depend on which party takes over.

They are just making a PROBE into the public opinion and the direction the discussion will take both in respect of the TV autopsy and the image of Michael Jackson in general. If the majority demands that “they need to know the truth”, the Discovery (or any other channel) will have a perfect excuse for airing the show or something similar to it.

If the majority says it is completely unacceptable, the future inevitable discussion of Michael’s health will take a turn for a more balanced and unbiased approach to the matter. With the trial looming ahead the message thus sent by the public to the press might be critical for Michael Jackson’s good name and his full future vindication.

Why I think they are making a probe? Look at the articles publishing the news of the autopsy postponement – almost all of them end either with a direct opinion poll or an indirect one conducted in the form of the comments. Some finish up with a blatant question: “What’s your reaction?”, “Do you think their decision was correct?” or “Should the Discovery Channel program air? Take our poll”.

I’ve looked up a Yahoo news article here and the 700 replies which are already there reminded me more of a fierce fight in a battlefield than of a mere discussion. The amount of sick, abusive and ignorant lies is exceeding all possible limits and took me completely unawares considering Michael’s fully acquittal in 2005 and the great wealth of information about his innocence now available in the internet.

One would think that we are long past that grossly-abusive stage when every lie about MJ could go unchallenged – but from what these people are saying it looks as if they live on some faraway island with no access to the internet or radio to know about the outcome of the 2005 trial and total lack of evidence to justify their lies.

They are either not willing to know the truth or spreading their hateful lies on purpose – about little boys ‘molested’ en masse in Neverland (who are now grown up people and say in chorus that it is slander), the Elephant man’s bones (never bought by Jackson), the autopsy being in line with his ‘crave’ for sensationalism (which he never sought) or serving well the man who had a chimp for his best friend (with humans like that – why not?).

In short it is the same old package of third-rate lies which Michael’s supporters would find laughable if those absurdities were not repeated by those people in full earnest….

However if they consider it to be a chance to resurrect the old animalistic hatred towards Michael,  it could be an equally great chance for us to set the record straight for him.  If the media wants to know the public opinion about Michael Jackson set in numbers it could be OUR chance too.

We could take the ample evidence of Michael’s innocence we’ve already collected by now and go out into the field to educate some of those idiots on a couple of things.  If we can’t write we needn’t do it – we can just add our voice of approval or disapproval to the opinions already expressed there thus increasing the number of Michael Jackson’s supporters.

If the media wants numbers LET US SHOW THEM.

    This is an EXCELLENT post from Sean Chai, the blogger who runs the Smoke and Mirrors blog. She has a second blog called “The Smoking Room”, and this was a post about the Discovery Channel doc, and how it is nothing but entertainment, similar to the public dissections that took place as far back as the 14th century! This post is VERY educational!

    Helena, we need to add the Smoking Room to our blog roll as well!

    @ David

    Unfortunately Murray’s defense will largely based on the notion that MJ was a drug addict (and unfortunately they are using this term) and Murray only tried to get him off the drugs. It was already clear from their cross-examinations in the first days of the prelim. hearings when they repeatedly asked the witnesses questions suggesting that.

    To be honest I can see where they are coming from (from the defense’s point of view) because it all didn’t start with Murray. IMO Klein would deserve to go to jail just as much (unfortunately that won’t happen though). However that doesn’t reduce the responsibility of Murray.

    I totally agree with Nikki Allygator that we need to distinguish between those who take medications and drugs to be high and get addicted (those are the drug addicts) and people like Michael who had great pains and sufferings for much of their lives and that’s why they took drugs and perhaps became dependent. It’s like calling a patient with diabetes a drug addict. Unfortunately the unresponsible and money-hungry doctors around him didn’t help.

    “The 500 and MJJCLegacy have been doing for some time now. But we would do with more numbers. As long as people remember to write factually, well and resist ad hominem — this is an essential part of the wider work that needs to be done.”

    Deborah, thanks a lot for your support. The idea to “go public” comes to different people simultaneously because it is ripe and it is there in the air for all of us to feel it. We have so little access to the media ourselves that whenever they (the media) provide us an opportunity by raising whatever subject about Michael I think we should use their venue for telling the truth about Michael.

    You know, even if you simply click the “like” or “dislike” button in the comments in favor of Michael, the numbers of voters can make people change their minds because people tend to side with the majority. If the number of those who think Michael to be innocent is impressive enough, this alone will trigger off the process of the others looking for the truth and reconsidering their earlier views.

    It’s just important to make the comment factual, not too long and non-emotional. Then it will show not only the best of Michael – but will show the best of Michael’s fans too.

    Yes, I think using the comments section to relay facts is an excellent idea. I’ve been doing this already but right now next coming weeks is going to be an excellent time to do this. Good advice too about keeping fan emotions out of the comments. Keeping them factual and to the point will have a greater impact in my opinion. Not only will it give us something productive to do in regards to geting accurate facts out to the public about Michael but it will help us deal with the crush of negative MJ news that is bound to be flooding out from media outlets everywhere.

    Couldn’t agree more VMJ.

    By using media’s own comment pages to talk about what is not widely known about Michael Jackson, if comments are well stated and ‘unfanny’ in tone, whether people agree or not with you or not in public — privately they may begin the process of doubting what they have been fed and start asking questions.

    Adding links to credible sources helps too. Not too many, better to keep comments easy to read. But one or two is helpful.

    Just spent a little time adding my clicks to the various polls you have listed. Every little helps to send a message.

    Yes, Deborah, I feel that the most important work to be done now is speaking to the general public – or otherwise we will stay just a research lab with no one really knowing what these researchers are doing there.

    Martine Vaudon, your message is so important for all of us that I am repeating it here in full with only some additions on my part.

    The exceptional community of Michael Jackson’s fans has prevented a media from crossing the red line. Since the death of Michael Jackson, tensions and fights among the fans had discredited them with media and outside Michael’s community of fans. There were groups of believers fighting against non-believers, those who want to boycott the album against those who want to promote it, the anti-Sony groups against the pro-Sony groups, those who were supporting the family against those who were supporting the Estate, and the list goes on…. but FINALLY, there was a great unity to face the Discovery Channel issue, our voices raised as one and we carried out our actions all together on a large scale. Through their actions and worldwide mobilization, fans have prevented Discovery Channel from crossing the red line.

    The unity was reached because the cause for our raising our voice as one was real danger to Michael and his family, not the controversial one as in the Sony case. Let us not think of artificial dangers when we have so many REAL ones.

    For several days and nights, we wrote letters: they were touching, beautiful, simple, elaborate, spontaneous, intellectual, sometimes filled with spelling mistakes or sometimes absolutely perfect.
    We sent letters, e-mails, tweets, everything was translated into English to have more impact, and retranslated into French so that the fans who don’t speak English can follow the whole story in progress. The mobilization was total. At the worst time, when we thought that we would not win, we even wrote to the Pope at the Vatican, we flooded his mailbox! And suddenly the news broke: Discovery Channel decided to postpone indefinitely the airing of this infamous program, which violates the fundamental rights to human dignity, family, respect and integrity.

    I didn’t know that anyone wrote to the Pope – what a great idea it was!

    Now let’s forget our differences and continue in this way. We, the fans, have an undeniable power. The Estate made it clear in their statement. We have to use this power wisely and keep putting pressure on the media so that they stop slandering the name of Michael Jackson. We claim to love Michael, his work, his inner beauty, his talent, his children, we claim to be defending his legacy against all odds, so let’s stay on the Internet, which is THE unmatched power of communication nowadays and let’s spread messages to show who Michael Jackson really was.

    Yes, using it WISELY is the biggest challenge of all.

    We will never allow the media to distort the truth again, to use his name to air programs to increase their ratings and therefore their profits, let’s make sure that he is FINALLY respected.
    We do have this power, so let’s use it. Those who were skeptic, those who didn’t think we could win, those who sometimes cruelly mocked our relentless commitment, have realized that we could do it.

    I think it is inevitable for us to be afraid each time we face a new danger because those whom we are fighting are powerful too. But we shouldn’t be even thinking of a possibility to be defeated – it is the goal which should be always kept in mind, but not the fear of a possible defeat. Not thinking about fear and doing what needs to be done for Michael no matter what is what really turns us into a mightly force.

    We should speak up for Michael and protect his children in the same way he would do if he were alive. His children are our children and their interests should always be placed first as if we were their parents. They have lost their father but they have gained a new and enormous family of all of us which is as big as the world itself.

    We will continue, we will never let them attack, slander or humiliate Michael. He gave us everything, he paid the price till he lost his life, never forget this. Today, we owe him to fight for him, we also owe it to his children, remember how much he loved them and how he always tried to protect them. We need to do it for him now, we need to protect his children, make sure that they can never read or watch horrible things about their father.

    Yes, Michael did indeed share with the world everything he had – his talent, inspiration, soul, passion and money but with the exception of love from his fans received nothing in return. It is time the world started giving back.

    It’s time for the war among fans to stop. Time has come for unity. Isn’t it what Michael has always told us? What have we learned from his message?

    As for the comments on Yahoo. Sad, but I realized many commenters on these website like to behave like cynical a**holes regardless of the topic. Maybe their lives are not happy and this is how they went their frustration. It’s not just about Michael. Today I went to CNN’s website where there was an article about how women get abused in Afghanistan in forced marriages. Then I went on to read the comments – I shouldn’t have. Many of them were cynical and insensitive.

    Examlpes: ” The minute I start caring about women in Afghanistan pigs will be flying. LOL”

    “Why all this focus on women?
    The only intresting issue in Afganistan is wether Men are happy with the way things are.
    If they feel the system works, don`t change it.
    Feminism have destroyed enough contries around the world.”

    This is the World we are living in….

    I’m not saying we shouldn’t defend Michael whenever we can. Of course we should. Who defends him if we don’t? I just say don’t be very surprised by the cynical and rude comments. It’s more about the posters than about Michael.

    Jaqueline, absolutely. The above is a universal principle of distinguishing good from evil given to us by the heavens. It ALWAYS works and is an indispensable tool in whatever we do. It is so easy to understand things when you apply this principle – just see what the fruit is and YOU WILL KNOW THE TREE.

    Look at the “fruit” of the two recent boycotts:

    1) of the new Michael album – fans divided, money not raised to pay the debt, haters happy if the album doesn’t sell in the US, Sony unaffected as its other products are selling as usual, the public thinking Michael’s fans crazy or weird.

    2) of the Discovery autopsy show – fans united, haters bewildered by the fans’ acting as one, the general public waking up to the atrocities TV is capable of and the media speaking of fans with noticeable respect.

    So if this is the fruit – what are the trees like?

    I cried reading those comments on that stupid site. But you can see that they come from people with ignorant, sick minds. People who have a stone instead of a heart.
    If I didn’t like a person for any reason, I would respect him/her. If you don’t like someone, okay, move on, live your life, take care of your own problems, your own life. Why is that that they need to spend all their time spreading hate toward someone who did NOTHING to them?????

    People give and show what they have inside. They can’t give what they don’t have. Look at Michael. You can see through his music, his lyrics, his work, his pure love for children and people, that he was a good person, an amazing human being, a great human being. How about these “haters”. They can only hate because hate IS what they have inside. They can’t “feel” someone’s pain, someone’s suffering, because they only have eyes to see their own navel.
    What did Jesus said?
    You know the tree by its fruits. A good tree will give good fruits. A bad tree will give only bad fruits.

    Sometimes I feel sad, but I put my heart in God, Jesus and Our Lady.
    God sees everything and He has his reward towards everybody. This is my strong belief. Many, many years ago, I lost my trust in justice. I only believe in God’s Justice. So, don’t you ever forget that God sees everything and Michael is with Him…
    God bless you all.

    Ares, I understand and that is why am doing everything I can to “work in the field”. I’m just back from that yahoo site (with 750 comments after the article) and was greatly surprised to see that all the haters were still there – making it their business to post every five minutes a small but hateful remark. These people definitely have nothing else to do but trash MJ!

    What surprises me is that people are so lazy and not inquisitive for the truth. It seems that they are not even willing to know it… I’ve stated some facts about Michael’s innocence there but frankly have little hope. However you are right – even if ONE person starts doubting his hatred it will already be worth it.

    Dial, I agree. Saying “thank you” to them is actually the last thing I want to say to them. These people should understand that they cannot play with things like that. This is no joke – even if it was done only for advertizing purposes and the real program could have turned out much better. I would be happy if ALL the media got the message that speaking about Michael Jackson in such terms and trashing him is JUST NOT ACCEPTABLE any longer.

    I never read the comments to MJ artilces on yahoo, I do add my comments though. Because of my e-mail address I can post comments to articles, I usually do that but I know it will get buried amongst thousands of comments. I have noticed MJ artilces on yahoo and huffingtonpost seem get the most vicious MJ haters commenting. I think some of it is bold faced ignorance but I think alot of it also bold faced denial. I think some of these MJ haters know very well it is just their opinion that Michael is guilty. For one reason or another they prefer to hang on to their nasty bias opinion of him. Jealousy perhaps, or laziness, I think it’s easier for people to hate someone they don’t understand rather than take the time learn about them and understand them better. I also think there is a certain element of fear, because Michael has been so stigamatized by the media (in too many ways to count) I think some people are afraid to like him too much. In my opinon it has more to do about them than Michael.

    This battle against negativity may seem like a hopeless battle to some but I know it isn’t. I’ve seen time and again people come to fan sites as new or rediscovering fans. They all say the same thing, that Michael’s death forced them to take interest in his life and learn what the truth really was. I think the same thing will happen if his music stays relevent.

    I also suppose the same thing could maybe happen during the Murray trial. While Michael’s name is in the media the fans and supporters have to be viligent to fight against the crush of negative publicity. Anytime there is an open comments sections, plug the links of different sites that contain truth like this one. Or what I do is plug articles by Charles Thomson, or mentions books like “Michael Jackson Conspiracy” or give links to court transcript sites.

    This is what plan to do on a regular basis, get the truth out even if it reaches no one…..but will hopefully reach even just one.

    It may seem like a losing battle but we’ll never know unless we try right?

    In any case it is nice to know how many likeminded people there are in Michael’s corner.

    I agree with morinen. This is those media outlets’ way of stirring controversy about a topic in order to generate more hits and comments for their sites. They know that they can generate lots of comments and controversy by dangling that “Do you agree with the decision” carrot. However, for those peoples’ opinions to have any bearing on a reversal of Discovery’s decision, they would have to stage a protest at the same level as the fans did-writing letters, boycotting the channel, etc. None of them are going to bother going that extra mile because it’s not worth that much to them. Sure, they can write their snarky and nasty comments on an article about the program, but in all likelihood, that’s ALL they’re going to bother doing. These people thrive on the attention they get by posting comments, not by being pro-active. I guarantee you that most of those commentors probably didn’t even know about the show before this, let alone planned to watch it. These articles, as they are written, simply give the haters a convenient open door to spill their vitriol and stir the pot, as is the intent. When the reporters write these articles and phrase them just such by actively soliciting readers’ opinions, they know that it will bring out the haters, which in turn will bring out the fans to defend, and before you know it…1,000,000 hits for the site!

    I think you have a point there. But either way i am going to express my οbjection to the program whenever i come across an article about it. That hideous show should never be aired.

    @Helena
    I see what you mean. I read the comments too. The thing is that the vast majority of the public still believes in the allegations.Things haven’t change that much i guess. I mean, they still believe that MJ bleached his skin because he wanted to became white, when there are hundreds of proofs – and now the official forensic report- that he had Vitiligo. Sadly, the systematic presentation of ΜJ as a criminal freak by the media, was highly effective. People have a completely wrong image of MJ, some of them even compairing him with criminal figures such as Hitler. When people have such a distorted view about MJ, how can they feel simpathy for him, how can they care about him. They simply won’t. People simply watch his transformation due to his illnesses and to his operations, they hear the negative presentation of him by the media and it’s easy for them to think the worst of him.That’s why you read comments like that, with an astonishingly vitriolic content./
    Blogs like yours are an amazingly helpful means for MJ’s vindication.Since the media have made up their mind about MJ and are not willing to present the truth or at least be fair, let as take advantage of every means in order to present the other side of the story. And the web is a very powerful means. I think that even if one person gets to learn the truth, that it truly very encouraging step./
    I would really like to thank you, David, Lynett, Suzy and every other person who has made this blog a possibility. It’s really very comforting to know that there are still people out there who care about MJ.

    The whole point is to use this as free promotion for the documentary, get the program aired as soon as possible before the audience loses interest or appetite for it. To use the polls to evade the responsibility for allowing this thing to continue. To say there is a great public interest in getting to the truth ….blah…blah…..blah.

    Besides it sets a bad precedence to allow a group of MJ Fan-at-tics to get away with shutting down any program that degrades MJ. There is an agenda to maintain.

    So I have not and will not restore Discovery. I have emailed my cable provider stating I wish me complaint to be forwarded to the Discovery Network headquarters informing them I have not intention of restoring it until they publicly announce this program is terminated once and for all. That I intend to encourage everyone I know to do the same and this will be all Discovery channel to include their latest OWN. I have also required my cable company notify me when they have received an acknowledgment of my complaint.

    I think it’s the way news sites generally present information: they try to turn everything into a controversy in order to attract more attention, opinions and comments. Same story was with the album, same story with the upcoming trial, etc. So their tone does not necessarily have anything to do with Discovery channel agenda. At least I’m hoping so. I hope the idea is laid to rest forever.
