Tell Me I Am Wrong About Oprah's Upcoming Specials

Post by MJfan01' » Tue Oct 19, 2010 10:15 am

I saw this on Orpah's website

Dear Oprah:

It is my genuine wish that you get to see this letter and that you read it with your heart.


Every child is born into this world innocent. It is disheartening that children suffer. It is especially heart-wrenching that they suffer in the hands of trusted adults. We understand you, we feel for you and every children who suffered/still suffers. The perpetrators should indeed be brought to justice. We do NOT condone child abuse, regardless of the stature of the perpetrator. That being said, we believe, you are dead wrong about Michael Jackson.


You branded Michael during his trial with distorted innuendos. You didn't blast Roman Polanski after he pleaded guilty for having sex with a 13 year old so where do you get off persecuting an innocent man who pleaded NOT GUILTY?


Tom Sneddon had a "by all means necessary" vendetta against Michael Jackson. He expended massive monetary resources, he employed overtime man-hours, he leaked documents which were plastered by worldwide media with negative narratives , he enlisted FBI intelligence, he manipulated California legislation, he even falsified evidence just to be able to support his case. Not a single speck of dust Michael Jackson ever stepped on went unexamined under a magnifying glass


Michael Jackson was acquitted from ALL charges by a unanimous jury, despite of the elaborate and illegal tactics employed by a vengeful District Attorney who lived and breathed to "nail' Michael Jackson. If it wasn't for the fact that the 2005 Trial killed a piece of Michael's soul, we would have thanked Tom Sneddon for unwittingly proving Michael's innocence beyond a shadow of doubt.


You issued an apology to Robin Givings over something minor compared to your grave offense to Michael Jackson and you STILL owe him an apology.


After his untimely death, prominent figures expressed their condolences over Michael Jackson's death. He was a trailblazer for African-Americans in the Entertainment Industry and it was disheartening that as someone who is an influential figure in the African American Community, you failed to offer your condolences. While his untimely death shook the world, you went on as if nothing happened. We feel that it was due to your distorted beliefs about Michael so we rained you with emails. Only after then, you announced that you would broadcast a "tribute" show which turned out to be a slap on the face.


He was always kind & respectful to everyone, including members of the media. Instead of being lauded for his magnanimous personality & accomplishments, he is lambasted by media because he chose to close his eyes to the prejudiced portrayal of him and simply opened his heart.


Your name was related, in the past, with struggle for freedom from oppression, abuse and prejudice. The public and especially Michael Jackson fans, hoped that you, of all people, would "get" Michael. But unfortunately you haven't been able to put aside your own prejudices. You have been subtly bashing Michael Jackson for awhile now and we are perturbed by your thinly veiled contempt.


Now you are chasing ratings, by hosting Lisa Marie Presley and Katherine Jackson. If you are NOT woman enough to issue a deserved apology, then why use the man's brand to boost your ratings? Your program line-up for next week speaks for itself. MON-molestation, WED-molestation THU Lisa Marie talks about Micahel Jackson! Is this why you postponed the LMP show so it can *"coincide"* to air after 2 molestation shows?


You have stoned an INNOCENT man in life, now you are stoning him in death!


As worldwide Michael Jackson fans and on the behalf of Jackson family, we invite you to right your wrong. It is only fair and it is long overdue.


We kindly request that you issue an apology to Michael Jackson, his family and his worldwide fans for judging an innocent man before his trial was over....worse after his acquittal.


Michael Jackson's death investigation and criminal trial is still ongoing. Jackson Family, in their grief, have shown less than prudent judgment while granting numerous interviews when their every word can and will be misconstrued by the media and in the court of law. Rating hungry networks are reaching out to Jackson Family to capitalize and often times, their remarks are misconstrued after skillful editing and innuendo-laden narrative. We are familiar with your modus operandi and we are deeply concerned that once again, you will use your worldwide platform to dishonor Michael.


While it is ultimately the responsibility of the Jackson Family to ensure that they don't undermine the ongoing trial, we would like to appeal to media to please demonstrate some integrity and give the Jacksons their privacy.


Moreover, there are reports that Michael's children may be in your scheduled show. Michael Jackson, above anything else, was a father, he was "the best daddy in the world". He shielded his children from flashing cameras and he expressed in numerous interviews that he would like privacy for his children.


While the responsibility lies with Katherine, the legal guardian of the children, to ensure that the children are raised away from public eye, we request that members of the Press display empathy and sound judgment in instances when Jacksons may fail.


It would be very distasteful if images of Michael Jackson's children are included in your upcoming show. Please honor Michael Jackson's wish for his children.


Katherine and Joe Jackson are 80 year old. They may have showed a lack of judgment, granting this interview but ultimately it is your show. You have the final say in deciding whether to broadcast it or now.


We appeal to NOT the businesswoman but the human being in you. Please put integrity above business & don't broadcast the Katherine Jackson interview.


Kind Regards,


"What happened when Jackson was acquitted? Red faces? Second thoughts? A little soul-searching, perhaps? Maybe an expression of regret for the rush to judgment? Naaawww. Hell hath no fury like a cable anchor held up for scorn" -Tim Rutten, LA Times


"Maybe now, Michael, they'll leave you alone" -Marlon Jackson


"I found out Oprah was at our family home, my stomach ached. I know how Oprah feel about my brother and my family. I also know that he would NOT have wanted this. Oprah is the last person on earth he [Michael] would want around his children" -Randy Jackson


"He is probably looking down and shaking his head wondering why his mother would decide to let Oprah into the Jackson household" -Karen Faye


"The image of Oprah in MICHAEL'S house just unnerves me! What a violation!" -MJ Fan

So I'll leave you with this, which is something EVERY MJ FAN should read!

"Excuse me, who is the abuser here Oprah?"


[/quote]


Okay, the BDD thing really pissed me off. As I admitted to you guys a few months ago, I have Body Dysmorphic Disorder. And yes I have heard Michael may have had BDD. When I was talking to my therapist about it even she said Michael may have suffered from it. And yes I do agree that it may have been something he had suffered from. Can you blame the guy? Michael grew up with people ridiculing his appearance since he was little, and that does get into your head. He had people make fun of his nose for years, by his own father, he was made fun of because he had acne, then he got burned, then he had vitiligo, which people just launched right onto to make him look like freak, that he bleached his skin. Then when Michael started having work done people ridiculed him for that too. And you wonder why he couldn't look in the f*cking mirror? What about that TV special a few years ago about Michael's face? If people made documentary TV specials on the way I looked, with 'specialist' doctors analyzing photos of me, Jesus, I probably would have topped myself.
AND PEOPLE WONDER WHY HE HATED THE WAY HE LOOKED?
Her comments sound like she is mocking him for feeling that way about himself. The way Michael saw himself was NO fault of his own. I find that extremely offensive.

Oprah, kiss my fat ass.

Well thank yall for agreeing with me. I can understand why people may have had certain doubts, the vitiligo for example, Michael was VERY good at hiding that. But imagine having a disease, and NOBODY believes you. The clues were all there. He wore a lot of make up, people with vitiligo generally have to wear a lot make up. He started wearing make up when his skin started changing colour in the 80's. He always wore clothes that covered him up, just like vitiligo sufferers have to. He was WHITER than a Caucasian, just like someone with vitiligo. But people were so busy looking for why he DOESN'T have this disease that they never paid attention to the clues that showed he DID.
People are idiots if they are going to question why he disliked himself after they spent the last 20 years nit picking at his every apparent flaw. They are idiots if they think someone is nuts because they try and fix those flaws.
Let me tell you something about BDD, when someone comments on a particular thing, you feel an obligation to fix that. You OBSESS over it. You go out of your way trying to hide it, or change it. There are people with BDD who are SO desperate that they will even try to perform surgery on themself because they can't afford the real thing. When I was younger there were a lot of things people picked at. One was my hair. As you may know it's very curly, and when I was a little taker it was a mess. People would ask me if I was so poor I couldn't afford a brush. People would ask me if I had brushed it. People would grab a brush and start doing it for me. So now, I obsess. I constantly preen my hair, I do my hair hours before I go out so I can make sure it looks good long before I go, and if it doesn't I have to do it all over again, I use all kinds of products, I am always checking it in my reflection.
So when Michael's father was telling him his nose was fat and he was ugly, you think he's not going to try and fix that so people will stop making fun? Of course he did. And people kept mocking him for THAT, so he kept trying to fix it.
Yeah Michael is going to deny what he's done, I am planning on getting a few things done myself, I won't be telling anybody. I don't want people to know that I needed to spend money to look that way.
The thing with BDD is, when people lay into you about one or 2 flaws, you start to scan for other flaws and try to fix them before people notice it.

Now I'm not saying this is DEFINITELY what he had, but if Oprah is going to bring him up on a show about that subject, then she should be a bit more empathetic rather than saying she questioned how genuine he was being about how he viewed himself to 'control the editing of the show'. And then to show pictures of him at 14 to recent photos of him (presumably she would have looked for the worst photo she could find), only to proclaim, 'he must have BDD'. Well yeah, when your audience is gasping in revulsion at photos you're snarking about, Michael's probably going to feel rather shitty.

And did anyone else take note of number 8 on the list? Talk about hypocrisy.
While I do not like Oprah, I would have respected her enough to think that she had more intelligence than to use someone she DESPISES and believes is a paedophile, to boost her ratings. To take advantage of a situation by using something she protests about and using that to get viewers, to be the one who managed to get THAT interview. Oh how good she'd look if she had the very FIRST interview with none other than the offspring of Michael Jackson. She only wants that interview to be know as that person. No other reason. And she is willing to go against her own views to get that. To have the nerve to be nice to someone's face while talking about him, and then talk smack when they aren't around. That way all these people will come back and give more.

Why Lisa Marie is talking to her after the way Oprah turned her nose up when she said that yes, God almighty forbid, they actually engaged in S-E-X, implying that Michael having a sexuality is revolting, implying that LMP must have been smoking crack to get within 10 feet of him, let alone actually care for him in THAT way, and do THAT with him. Because you know, I most certainly want to think about Oprah having a shag don't I.

If I happen to bump into Oprah when she comes here to Australia...

This is about conviction running rampant. But, what do you say about those who seem to have no conscience? Oprah has always been, and will always be about Oprah; likewise LMP. The worst thing about this, is that he's not here to rebut LMP's comments, whether they be positive or negative. Also, his children's feelings are never ever considered. Michael was too much of a gentleman to discuss his private life with LMP after she divorced him. She didn't grant him the same courtesy when he was alive, and she's not doing it now. In fact, I don't believe she will ever shut up about him. She's behaving like she's another Yoko Ono, or Coretta Scott King. She's behaving like she's his widow. But, LMP is as far removed from that status, (like +14 years ago last century) - as she can be.
