Get a load of Lionel Seah's comments in Life! today, in his review of The Michael Jackson Interview : The Footage You Were Never Meant To See. His criticisms of MJ are his own personal opinions, and who am I to tell him he's wrong, right? But I'm concerned about his defence of Martin Bashir's journalistic methods, practically saying that it's okay to lie in order to get your interviewee to open up to you -- ie. it's all right to be evil as long as it boosts your career. And reporters wonder why they're universally loathed.

Anyway, I saw the above programme, and Bashir is truly an ass. His remarks "off-screen" are the total opposite of what he retained in the final version, which is a detestable thing to do. MJ may be weird, but he doesn't deserve to be treated this way. No-one does.

I shall end on a happier note. Tune in March 19th for the pilot of The Bachelor 2, featuring a very good-looking Aaron Buerge. I already know the ending -- but shall leave that out for now, for the sake of those who don't want to have the suspense ruined -- but who can resist some trashy reality TV on a quiet weekday night? :)

Last but not least, check out this website for a bit of clean fun. Taken from Dave Barry's Blog. Cheerio!
