‘If some of the evidence is demonstrably false, the validity of that testimony in its entirety must be called into question’
Whether you believe Michael Jackson’s two accusers or not, there’s no denying the Leaving Neverland film is incredibly one-sided.
Not a single person other than Wade Robson, James Safechuck and their families was interviewed, while the Michael Jackson Estate was not even given a right of reply to the claims. This violates all norms and ethics in filmmaking and journalism.
More crucially, director Dan Reed decided not to include a whole host of other important information about the accusers’ past and their behaviour to offer balance.
Why? Because it would have discredited them.
