Awful badly researched documentary
25 May 2018 | by jacksand-30048See all my reviews

An very awful and badly researched documentary. The special acts like a tabloid when talking about the allegations in 93 and 2003. It completely ignores to go into details and to mention in detail the huge evidence that proves his innocence.

It makes you believe that the creators of the documentary have some hidden agenda against MJ. The people who are interviewed in this documentary are people who never meet or been around Michael and know nothing about him, which is weird. The special seems very forced and one sided.

In this documentary many facts and real evidence are ignored for the sake of gossip and tabloid stuff. Very sad and unprofessional by ABC and I would like to apologize to his three children for this disgusting exploiting TV Special. The media killed your beloved father by hiding the truth from the public and they wont stop. They wont even mention that his death was a homicide and that he was killed and that the murderer went to jail. They instead say he died and that he overdosed. Very sad. They should be ashamed. Let him rest in piece.
