The latest TMZ reports
I have been watching the recent TMZ reports with dismay. All I can do is remind people that TMZ is a "trash bin" where all dirty laundry gets thrown and rehashed. The idea of the TMZ show and website is to spread scandal. It is for this reason that a man who has such great respect and stature, such as Tom Mesereau, would probably never go on the show voluntarily. Sometimes, it is better to ignore wild claims and crazy accusations, because the more you protest, the more "real" it begins to seem in people's minds. I find that staying with the facts -- has always worked best for me. I try to be as straight and honest as I can when I report... and as an investigative crime author for over 20 years, that creed has never failed me. To all those who are upset with the recent "trash" being thrown up against the wall -- and bunch of garbage being thrown to see what will stick -- I say, let it go. What would Michael do? He would refuse to dignify this nonsense with any response at all. Michael Jackson has a film out that shows his genius in every possible form... but people don’t want to focus on that. As long as we continue to contemplate garbage, we perpetuate the cycle of trash that insults his genius and hurts his legacy.
