Adam Yoshida and Robin Wallace ask some serious questions about the Jackson case. Yoshi wonders why, in the ten months or so after the release of the Bashir documentary that details Jackson's disturbing behaviour, nothing about this issue came to light. He also asks how many people close to Jackson know anything about this, and why they did nothing. Wallace wonders at what sort of parents would even allow their children to stay with Michael Jackson (via Winds of Change). Makes you think, doesn't it?All this reminds me of the Law & Order episode where a child was offered by his parents to a pedophile celebrity for money to treat his cancer-stricken brother. It gave me chills. This case gives me the exact same feeling, but when the media treats the case like so-called "reality TV", one wonders exactly how did we get to such lows.
