5 Stars So Glad the Truth is Out
As much as I have been dying to read books on Michael Jackson, I have been very careful in choosing which book I purchase. I am NOT interested in supporting those authors who claim to have the “scoop” on the truth about MJ. I certainly don’t want my mind muddled with false information or personal opinions that have no factual standing, whatsoever, or out-of-context factoids just so these writers can make money at the expense of MJ’s reputation. It’s just not right. The only other book I purchased was the “Michael Jackson Tapes” by Rabbi Schmuley only because it would be the words of Michael Jackson, himself. Even with that book I was not impressed because Schmuley has to put his two-cents worth into everythig Michael had to say and shroud Michael’s words with Schmuley’s own opinions and intentions.
Anyway, about this book, “Michael Jackson Conspiracy”, I am very glad to have read a book that deals with FACTS. I took a chance and purchased it based on other people’s comments, and I say it’s worth reading! Personally, I NEVER believed all the crap that has been said about MJ. Even when the Bashir interview aired, right then I said to my husband, I actually believe Michael and completely agree with his views that there’s nothing wrong with kids sharing a bed if it’s innocent, the way that he described it. In that interview I could truly sense his sincerity and honesty in what he was saying and how he was saying it. This world is so darn hippocritical that we (the media especially) are quick to find fault in others and sensationalize it and take it out of context. I’m sure one could have a field day on the numerous things that we say and do every day that can easily be misconstrued to make us look like criminials when, in fact, we’re not. Anyway, that’s my opinion, and this book is wonderful in that it describes the numerous innacuracies of the accusers’ testimonies, their disagreeable conduct, and so much more, so that for the readers out there who like to base their opinions on facts, this book will certainly lay out for you what the media did NOT and will probably never want you to know!
It disgusts me so very much how the media is like a petri dish that starts as a nasty little bacteria that continues to grow until it’s out of control. They purposely and greedily misconstrue issues, don’t give you the correct circumstances from which it came, nor do they give you ALL the facts! It sickens me that the media was always waiting breathlessly in court for anything that they could leak out to the public that would make Michael Jackson look bad. This books reveals how they couldn’t do that – Thank you Ms. Jones and Mr. Mesereau.
4 Stars Fair Trial and Media Bias
This book is factual and we are spared some of the more brutal details.
Aphrodite Jones by her own admission says she reported in a negatively biased manner in Jackson’s previous dealings with Jordy Chandler, the first person to acuse Michael Jackson of child molestation. Michael Jackson seems to attract negative media and it seemed it would be difficult for him to get a fair trial. Somehow Aphrodite Jones must have felt the ‘guilts’ and seen the injustice of this reporting in the media by herself and other journalists, so decided to do something about it. She actually had to self publish as no-one wanted to publish a pro-Jackson book about this trial. Tom Mesereau, leader of the Defence team has written a forward in this book and said up to date, this is the truest account of what really happened in this trial.
The title of the book Conspiracy is so apt. Conspiracy on which level? How did this trial even get to court? I do not live in the USA and do not work in any legal field, however it is glaringly obvious that the Prosecution’s case was very contrived and based on weak evidence. You do not have to be Einstein to see this. What a waste of taxpayers money (I believe the cost of the trial was massive) and time for all concerned. There was nothing positive in this for anyone. What drove this, one has to ask?
The book can be seen to be pro-Jackson as it shows how injustices can be perpetrated by the law. It also can be seen to be heartening as it is the little people-the jury, who have the final say. Various pictures in the book are good also.
This is well worth the read and brings up a lot of questions about a fair trial and the obtaining of justice.
4 Stars Michael Jackson Conspiracy by Aphrodite Jones
This book was very good. Very fair, but I never believed how the media portraited Michael Jackson in the first place. More people should read this book for the truth.
5 Stars A travesty of the greatest magnitude
I have almost finished this book. It is very well written and researched and entirely taken from the court transcripts, evidence and documents.
It is a TRAVESTY what happened to Michael Jackson. No person should endure what he did. This book explains it all.
The world needs to wake up and realise how they were lied to and manipulated by the media into believing he was a child molester. The man was the furthest thing from this that anyone could possibly be.
The media had BIG money resting on him being found guilty. When he wasn’t they slunk away without any apology or explanation as to what really happened and continued to perpetuate the LIE to the public that he was a pedophile. Those people should hang their head in shame. WAKE UP…..we are being lied to and manipulated ALL the time by the media for their own selfish, greedy purposes and Michael Jackson, a gifted and talented singer, dancer, song writer and Director was a casualty of their agenda.
Michael Jackson endured this public slaughtering with courage, grace, dignity and strength as you would expect.
I recommend everyone who wants to learn about the truth of what really happened to Michael Jackson read this book. It will open your eyes to alot of things.
Perhaps he will be back to seek his revenge one day!!!!!!!!!!!!!
5 Stars Absolutely fantastic!
This is the book to read if you want to know what really happened in the trial. Aphrodite Jones uses real court transcripts in this amazing and 100% true book. i will thank Aphrodite Jones so much for writing this book and Tom Mesereau whom i have great respect for. as you read it you will also see how the great Michael Jackson became the victim of a money greedy family and a slandering media but in the end justice was served. May God bless you Michael Jackson, Aphrodite Jones, Thomas Mesereau and all the other people who always believed in MJ’s innocence.
