MTV Supports Revolting and Patronizing Video against Jackson – MB #210

MTV Supports Revolting and Patronizing Video against Jackson – MJEOL Bullet #210 MTV “losing it” by standing with Eminem’s disgustingly offensive video and song MTV is a “music” station built on the back of Michael Jackson, say observers of the latest controversy dealing with the asinine song and video by pop squeaky-wheel Eminem. For now, the soft-core porn channel–as some smart-alecks like to refer to it—will continue to play the hideous and disgustingly disrespectful Eminem video. Despite BET yanking the garbage from their airwaves, MTV has thus far replied with an insult of their own; claiming Jackson is “losing it” for wanting the video pulled. Jackson has released a statement about this recent situation, saying:

“I am very angry at Eminem’s depiction of me in his video. I feel that it is outrageous and disrespectful. It is one thing to spoof, but it is another to be demeaning and insensitive. “I’ve admired Eminem as a artist, and was shocked by this. The video was inappropriate and disrespectful to me, my children, my family, and the community at large. It is my hope that the other networks will take BET’s lead and pull it.” (see Statements from Jackson and BET Re: Eminem publicity stunt)

This is not shocking coming from MTV, who has been viciously deceitful and disrespectful towards Jackson in the past. What is outright ungrateful is the fact that MTV would not be “MTV” had it not been for Jackson putting the channel on the map with his vast audience base while it was still a fledgling network.

Prosecutors Hiding Alleged Informants from the Defense? – MJEOL Bullet #209

Prosecutors Hiding Alleged Informants from the Defense? – MJEOL Bullet #209 Are prosecutors hiding people who they claim are “informants” from the defense team? Jackson’s lawyers filed a motion, dated October 4 2004, in which they say prosecutors have not been forthcoming in turning over the names of people who prosecutors claim gave them info about Jackson. As far as the defense knows, these people may not exist, they may have exculpatory evidence or they may not have even been around Jackson during the time prosecutors alleged a crime occurred. This is what the defense is trying to find out. The defense team states that they have received a “search warrant hodgepodge” of information with missing pages and missing supporting affidavits. Some search warrants they haven’t even seen at all yet. It is insanely preposterous that prosecutors still have yet to even produce all search warrants, supporting affidavits and their returns to the defense. More over, they have been trying to get the identities of these so-called “informants” since at least July 22 2004, as referenced in a letter written from Tom Mesereau to Sneddon. And, apparently, Sneddon lied to the defense about who this person(s) was.
