We encouraged all Mj forums, fanclubs, organization and individuals to join us in this letter to the media and also pls do sign our petition.
Soon the case of Katherine Jackson vs. AEG will begin and Michael Jackson’s death and intimate details of his life will once again be a part of the nightly news.
Michael’s fan base is 100 Million strong and growing every day. We are a large part of your audience and you can be sure we are very much interested in a fair, balanced, unbiased and most importantly accurate portrayal of Michael Jackson.
We understand that the case will be interesting to the world; not just to his fans.
While the media dissects Jackson’s life again, nearly four years after his untimely death, we have one request. Recently, the National Enquirer posted Michael Jackson’s semi-nude autopsy picture on their front page and then used the same as its background on the National Enquirer, Twitter account.
As journalists, it is imperative you abide by the code of ethics, which specifically calls for you to minimize harm to those adversely affected; using special sensitivity to children. To his multitude of fans, his Estate, his family and especially his three minor children the use of Michael Jackson’s autopsy photo is not only inappropriate and unethical, and unduly cruel to his children.
We are humbly requesting that your respectable news agency will not stoop to such a barbaric display of disrespectful disregard and instead bestow a bit of grace upon his children by refraining from posting this autopsy photograph during any of your coverage of this story.
Thank you for your time and consideration in this important matter.
