As the public is fed constant pabulum, like this:
As the latest signal of Michael Jackson’s
apparent financial difficulties, one of the unindicted co-conspirators in the child molestation case against the pop star intends to slap a lien Friday on Jackson’s Neverland ranch, NBC News has learned.
F. Mark Schaffel, a gay porn producer who also produced two unaired “rebuttal” videos meant to counter the negative publicity from the 2003 documentary, “Living With Michael Jackson,” is seeking to ensure he is repaid what he claims are at least $3 million in outstanding debts: $1 million for production of the two videos, and more than $2 million in personal loans, payments and gifts for such famous Jackson friends as Elizabeth Taylor and Marlon Brando.
I wonder if Dan Abrams will report this:
Under sharp questioning at a hearing before the Senate Armed Services Committee, Mr. Goss sought to reassure lawmakers that all interrogations “at this time”
were legal and that no methods now in use constituted torture. But he declined, when asked, to make the same broad assertions about practices used over the last few years.
