Aphrodite Jones’ vehement defense of MJ

English: Aphrodite Jones promo for True Crimes...

I recently sent my friend and MJ vindication partner LunaJo67 three interviews of journalist and Michael Jackson supporter Aphrodite Jones that she conducted in April 28th, June 19th, and June 23rd, 2010.  I wanted to put them all in a single post so that fans could easily find them and listen to them all in one place. (In addition to those three interviews, she has uploaded almost 40 of my videos to her Youtube account, and has named them her “Vindicate MJ” playlist, in addition to her hundreds of other pro-MJ videos!)

Before I post the interviews in their entirety, I want to focus on a bombshell statement that Aphrodite said in her first interview on April 28th, and I called in and asked her to elaborate on in her second interview on June 19th.  In the video below, you hear her discuss the fact that Martin Bashir instructed Gavin Arvizo to place his head on MJ’s shoulder, and hold his hand, just prior to shooting what would be the most controversial scene of the entire documentary. (You can read this post for information on how Bashir tricked MJ into trusting him to portray him honestly, and this post for a rebuttal to Bashir’s second anti-MJ hit piece that aired in 2005.)

I thought that it was very important to highlight this first because there are many, many fans who don’t know why on Earth MJ would hold hands with Gavin like that, as it certainly helped Bashir paint MJ as a child abuser in the court of public opinion. When Raven Woods, the author of the All For Love blog, was at the MJ Fanvention in August 2010, she said that there was an audible gasp from the audience of fans who listened to Aphrodite relay this information to them, and that reaction is very typical from fans who hear that for the first time, including me!

Before I get to the rest of her interviews, I want to show you an promotional video that she aired in 2010 for her documentary that was based on her incredible book “Michael Jackson Conspiracy”, and for the fans who have not read it yet, I’m happy to say that it is back in print and available on Amazon and other book sellers!

    I listened to an interview with Aphrodite jones claiming she had doubts about the 1993 case. I am a bit confused as to why. She said from hearing the mother’s testimony, MICHAEL she says, seemed to be in love with this boy, Jordan. I know she defends him and all. But if I defended someone I would want to make sure I believe him then in 1993 before defending and saying I believe he is innocent. Sorry, if this sounding annoying. I just am a bit confused with her.

    “I listened to an interview with Aphrodite jones claiming she had doubts about the 1993 case. But if I defended someone I would want to make sure I believe him then in 1993 before defending and saying I believe he is innocent.” – Talia Gifty

    Talia, with time the motives of different people become much clearer. Aphrodite Jones looks to me rather superficial and not especially intelligent. During the trial she was no better than the others and reported it in almost the same way as Diane Dimond did (as I hear), and it was only when the jury found Michael not guilty that she decided to really look. The verdict surprised her and she wanted to know more.

    Well, it’s nice that she made it clear, for herself in the first place, that in the 2005 case the jurors were absolutely right. But learning the truth about the 1993 case requires a lot of hard work too , and this is what A. Jones is absolutely unwilling to do, so over here she prefers to go by what others say.

    What’s terrible about superficial people like A.Jones is that they don’t make conclusions from what they see. They regard different allegations about MJ like separate cases where the outcome of one case does not have a bearing on the other.

    And this is what is totally wrong. It is enough to remember that Sneddon was the prosecutor in both cases and if he was trying to pass off con artists like the Arvizos and “threatened” to show the photos of MJ’s genitalia (which he never could) in the 2005 case, there is no reason to doubt that in the 1993 his modus operandi was the same. The same reliance on con artists, the same manipulations with evidence, the same false statements, etc.

    But people like A.Jones seem to think that a person may be a liar in one case and be totally honest in another. Noooo, it doesn’t work this way. Once a liar, always a liar.

    “She said from hearing the mother’s testimony, MICHAEL she says, seemed to be in love with this boy, Jordan”

    If A.Jones really said it, she is even more of an idiot than I thought her to be. I’ve read June Chandler’s testimony no less than 10 times and saw nothing of the kind there.

    * * *
    Generally speaking, when people don’t know something it would be much better if they said honestly “I don’t know” instead of theorizing about things they have no idea of. A. Jones has gained a good reputation by writing a truthful book about the 2005 trial, so it is natural that people rely on her opinion about the 1993 case too.

    But instead of saying that she never did any research of the Chandler case and admitting that she doesn’t know any more than the others, she pretends to be a Ph.D. on Michael Jackson in general. And when she makes a mistake which looks like a learned opinion of an expert, it does much more harm to the truth than the opinion of a lay person.

    This is what’s unforgivable in her case.

    Thank you so much for getting back to me. Yeah I WAS a bit confused by it. I was taken back by it. But thank you again for answering. It made a lot of sense for me.
