Diligent, I agree with you that they could have given a press release or something about him having vitiligo. It would have helped things enormously but I do understand that he wanted to keep medical info private. Also someone suggested that he may have had difficulty getting insurance or funding for his concerts if the info about lupus was public. So that's possible. But i think the media as a whole gets "mad" when they can't get access to someone. They respond with viciousness. Tom Cruise is another celebrity that has been treated horribly, and he is very private. I don't think MJ's PR people did a great job handling the media. But it's tough when they get in such a frenzy.

Hello Stephanie,

There was no good time for the Jacksons' to announce Michael' condition. (Today it is called a skin condition, before then it was called a disease.) (How long would MJ been able to work, with promoter, other artist and regular people thinking he had a disease.) (Too soon after Polio) By the time we the general population were more educated about medical issues he tried with Oprah. See where that got him.

Which really pisses me off. Anyone who had to overcome the implied stigma of race, body type and background should have been able to take a clear look at this man and know the truth.

Dialdancer, I agree that there really wasn't any good time for Michael to announce that he had vitiligo. It amazes me that the media still continually accused him of bleaching his skin and trying to be white, even after the interview with Oprah. it seems like no matter what Michael did or said he couldn't win.

Diligent Diva, you have a good point, that Michael did not have good boundaries. it is common with people who have been abused, they have no conception of boundaries. As you said there is nothing wrong with spending time with children, but he never should have allowed them to sleep there. His only intention was too help people, he just had the misfortune of trying to help the wrong people. He was a target because of his big heart, and they took advantage of that.

Back to the thread:

To get the others to minded their manners we have to get their attention. No matter what is being trouted Politically we are a Capitalist Country. So in order to get the Media's attention you must hit the Media where it hits most, their pockets.

TV Networks live and die viewer ratings which brings them sponsors. Sponsors are responsive to buyers, they want our money. When a Media personality is misinformed email the station. Notify others you have contact with and they do the same.

When they are misinformed and insulting. Turn the channel and email the station of your action. When they continue to do so turn it off, email them and a local or state representative of your feelings about such conduct. They'll tell you there is nothing that can be done. Bull.

Any information you correct another on must accurate, must be able to be researched as a proven fact.

Before you can get others to listen about Michael we have to get the Media to stop using their current tactics to paint him as an undesirable human being.

it's how long you watch and if you're watching the commericals.

Here is a youtube link to a Dr. educating Diane Sawyer to vitiligo, lupus, fibromyalga, alopecia & they discuss the different ways MJ disguised or dealt with the diseases :

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mX0ItcAIeIY

At the end, she says, "looking at those pictures in a whole new way." Not an apology, but @ least she now has a better understanding of what MJ went through.

Jean-
What exactly does "bump" mean?

Felicity: it is a way to take a discussion thread that has become buried on the second or third page, and you have to then search for it, and put the thread to the front of the cue. so it is the first thing you see come up. It also has been used to bury troll threads--the ones started by people who just want to cause havoc by dissing MJ cruelly on a discussion thread.
So "bump" means, bump this up to the top of the discussion threads.

Okay. Thanks Jean. I will take note of that next time.

Blessings and L.O.V.E.

C. Coy-
I tried that link. It's been removed. Not surprised, really.

I'd like to see a global rally. Peaceful, respectful and strongly committed to bringing about a change in reporting. We the people have made this Media Monster and only we can stop it, bring it under control.

I'd like to see Michael Jackson supporters, not fans, but supporters dress in their everyday clothes, no t-shirt, badges, gloves, etc.

When faced with people of all ages, races, cultures and social and economic backgrounds representing just people who are tired of the trash passed off an "News" it become almost impossible to dismiss them or disregard their power. (Money)

C. coy,

It still comes back to showing other people sitting at home watching the News; seeing neighbors, the little old couple who runs the gas station and others that they identify with making a very vocal demand for the discontinuance of the type of reporting that is common today.

It can give us an opportunity tell about verifiable incidents reported, but not true. It also opens up dialog between the 2 groups an opportunity to educate. To increase numbers. It will take a lot the get Barshir fired.

Emails and letters can be erased and shredded, but thousands of people in different locations globally can't be ignored. T

he Media being who and what they are will report it, send out camera crews and as long as each supporter is knowledgeable and acts in a rational manner when the Haters come there a better chance of success.
