Jackson's footage contradicts Bashir

The sweet taste of revenge was Michael Jackson's this week when footage aired on American television showed the British journalist Martin Bashir contradicting himself by lavishing praise on the star's parenting skills and his Neverland ranch.

The journalist, who said Neverland was a "dangerous place" for vulnerable children in his documentary Living with Michael Jackson, was shown describing the ranch as "incredible" and "spiritual" in a program screened on the US Fox network on Thursday. "The problem is nobody actually comes here," he tells Jackson. "But I was here yesterday and it's nothing short of a spiritual kind of thing."

Added to that is previously released footage in which Bashir is heard telling Jackson: "Your relationship with your children is spectacular. It almost makes me weep when I see you with them because your interaction with them is so natural, so loving, so caring."

The documentary also showed Jackson telling Bashir how he thought the Berlin zoo where he took his children amid a media scrum was due to be closed for his visit. In the program's commentary, Bashir criticised Jackson for endangering his children on the trip.

Maury Povich, who presented the Fox special, said the picture drawn by Bashir in his show was misleading. Yesterday, the British PR guru Max Clifford said the Jackson scoop will be "more damaging for Martin Bashir than it was for Michael Jackson. What is being revealed is that you can't trust this man. It shows him as two-faced and from now on people will be reluctant to put themselves in his hands."

The British broadcaster Granada, which made the documentary, said the footage of Bashir praising Jackson had been taken out of context. Bashir was unavailable for comment. Jackson, 44, sold footage of the pair talking, shot by his own camera, to Fox for £1.6 million ($A4.2 million) after claiming Granada had "utterly betrayed" him.

The Michael Jackson Interview: the Footage You Were Never Meant to See, will be shown in Britain tomorrow and in Australia soon.

I agree with you t1obaggage. I wish Fox would show it again because I have lost my tape and it always made be feel good to watch it. Oh well.
