Here in Switzerland, Michael Jackson has officially been been banned from the radios dut to his trial . Here in europe, there has been a lot of suffering from all the paedophilia and people would find it unaccepatble if Michael's songs were to continue to be played in the radios . I dunno if its the same with the U.S ; guess some radios have banned his songs. Please tell me if you know M.J has been banned in your respective countries

He hasn't been banned here and I don't think he will. It's always "innocent until proven guilty" even though the public might brand him guilty.

Either way, he hasn't come out with anything good in a while. So it's not like they would be playing his music that much anyway.

Is he actually banned or is nobody playing his music? There is a difference. I don't think that he should be banned, but I'd really have no sympathy for him if people decided that they just didn't want to listen to him anymore.

IIRC, Jackson got BET to not play Eminem's "Just Lose It" video, which painted him in somewhat of a negative light. So I guess it can go both ways.

Not banned here. And it seems rather silly to do so. Especially since he hasn't been found guilty... yet.

Not in the UK as far as I know, again Innocent until proven guilty. Plus people here are generally clever enough to spot when someone's being turned into something they're not by the media.

The only ban in the States that I can remember was when Foxboro, MA banned M.J. from performing his Thriller concert at Schafer/Sullivan/Foxboro Stadium back in 1984. I believe that that ban was more of a Foxboro issue because a year later, they told Bruce Springsteen that he could not perform there during his Born In the USA tour.

Censorship does not exist in Switzerland, so Michael Jackson is certainly not "officially banned" from stations, as RootsAir put it. It may be that some broadcasters refuse to play his songs, but as mentioned before, that's something completely different.

I have not heard a MJ song on the radio since about 1989.

I'd like to know who actually listens to his music anymore?

I remember lots of people defending Gary Glitter.

Do you?

You've a better memory than me then, because my recollection is that there was a resounding silence in the run up to his trial and conviction.

The fact that it was pretty much an open and shut case limited any scope defending him. I can only imagine that it was a lunatic fringe who spoke up for him if anyone.

Maybe not actually, I just remember someone I know going on and on about how 'he just couldn't have done it because he is such a great musician'. Hmm.

As for Michael Jackson, I think public opinion of him has been shaped more by what he's done to himself rather than the media.

Ha. So, having alreay dismissed the person you know as part of the "lunatic fringe" in my previous post, is there anyone else you know you'd like me to slag off?  Big grin

Sounds more like denial, anyway. It's understandable, it really is. The odd thing about Glitter was that he strongly appealed to kids. Growing up in the 70's and 80's everyone who was a child loved him. Creepy, isn't it?

I honestly can't remember the last time I heard a Michael Jackson song on the radio.

He's also a Tory.

It was very creepy indeed. Bear in mind that being the famous superstar he was, he probably had quite a few young girls adoring him (despite his appearance), which is what might have prompted what happened. He wouldn't be the first famous person to go a bit loopy.
