Martin Bashir Diagnosed with Brain Tumor

TV interviewer Martin Bashir, famed for his chats with Princess Diana and Michael Jackson, is reportedly suffering from a brain tumour.

The 45-year-old former Panorama presenter has a tumour growing on his pituitary gland but plans "to get on with his life".

The condition, being monitored by doctors, was found after he suffered a serious blow to the head last month.


Matt Fiddes Interview with UK Tabloid Confirms Bashir’s Treachery – Bullet#325

UK tabloid The Sun is running a story on their website about Matt Fiddes, one of Michael Jackson’s former UK bodyguards.

While sticking to the asinine ‘Jacko’ tabloid-created moniker, the article is surprisingly without the usual pile of trash masquerading as news often found in Jackson-related articles; particularly from tabloid sources.

Among other things, Fiddes is quoted as saying “Michael must be the most misunderstood man in the world. He is such a nice guy behind closed doors.”


Martin Bashir Eye-witness to Illegal Sexual Conduct, Lawyer Says

Lawyers for “Girls Gone Wild” founder Joe Francis want ABC’s “Nightline” reporter Martin Bashir to tell what he knows to a judge about whether State Attorney Steve Meadows showed him child pornography during an interview.

A hearing is scheduled for Feb. 8 to address a motion from Miami attorney Roy Black seeking dismissal of the 2003 criminal charges against Francis, or the case moved out of Panama City, because Meadows reportedly violated state law and legal ethics by showing Bashir a tape of the “shower scene” that is at the center of the case against Francis.


Bashir faces fresh criticism

Martin Bashir, the TV journalist accused of betraying Michael Jackson, is at the centre of a fresh row over allegations that he "blackmailed" the father of a runaway child prodigy to appear in one of his documentaries.

Farooq Yusof, whose daughter Sufiah ran away from Oxford University at the age of 16, last week told a confidential hearing of the broadcasting standards commission that Bashir had promised to give him information about his daughter in return for an interview for ITV’s Tonight With Trevor McDonald.
