Jackson Sets Up Web Site For Molestation Defense


Michael Jackson has created a Web site to give his side of his child-molestation case. “As you know, the charges recently directed at me are terribly serious,” he writes on the site — www.mjnews.us — about the child molestation charges brought against him late last week. “They are, however, predicated on a big lie.”

“You are right to be skeptical of some of the individuals who are being identified in the mass media as my friends, spokespeople, and attorneys. With few exceptions, most of them are simply filling a desperate void in our culture that equates visibility with insight. We will not engage in speculation. We will not provide running commentary on every new development or allegation du jour. We intend to try our case in the courtroom, not in the public or the media.”

Comments the Washington Post: “The words ‘I am innocent’ do not appear anywhere in [his] letter.”
