Take that Martin Bashir!!!
29 April 2003 | by See all my reviews

In 2002, UK Journalist Martin Bashir, interviewed Michael Jackson over a period of 8 months. In February 2003, The finished product titled, Living With Michael Jackson went to air around the world. The result is simply sickening. The interview made Michael out to be a child molester and it seemed that Mr. Bashir didn't care about the truth, all he cared about was entertainment. Later that month, Michael made this documentary, which shows the uncut version of the Bashir interview which shows Mr. Bashir giving a different point of view. Watch this documentary, and then you be the judge.
