Firstly, let me say I am not starting this thread for a debate on who is guilty and who is innocent. I want to use this thread to discuss how the
reactions of society seemingly show how the public's perception is controlled and manipulated.
Of course, people have different opinions, but from who I have spoken to so far, many think Jimmy Saville was innocent. For those who are not aware
of Jimmy Savile, he was a household name in the UK for children's shows who since his death last year, has been accused of child abuse. Here is a
CNN link for those who are unaware of the case-
London (CNN) -- Britain's public service broadcaster, the BBC, was caught up in a growing furor Saturday over claims that a late children's TV
presenter sexually abused young women and girls, sometimes on its premises, in the 1960s and 1970s.
The abuse claims, which come almost a year after presenter Jimmy Savile died, were made by five women in a documentary screened by rival broadcaster
On talking to my girlfriend, she firstly thinks it is disrespectful to look into the Saville case because he is dead. She even stated that the
'supposed victims' are coming forward to get some compensation hoping they will get paid off!
At the same time, she firmly believes Michael Jackson is guilty.
As I said, I'm not here to give my opinion on the cases, I just find it interesting that she would take these views. Michael Jackson was certainly
discredited by the media and they made a huge deal over the child abuse claims. I'm not saying he was innocent, but the media was used to make
society in general believe he was guilty. His image was never the same again.
What I want to get at is that when the MSM make such as huge effort to descredit a massive star, then I believe there is an agenda at work. That
agenda, as seen with Michael Jackson, is almost always incredibly effective amongst the general public who buy up what they are told and read in the
A lot has come out regarding the Savile case, perhaps much more evidence than was ever used against Michael Jackson, but people are having a very hard
time believing Savile was guilty of such crimes because before his death, he was friends with the Royal family and known for his charity work etc- ie,
he a solid image and therefore society's mindset is going to be hard to change no matter how much evidence may or many not emerge in the coming
It's just one of many ways in how society in general is guided in how and what to think. I know I'm making generalisations, but those are the
experiences I have so far- people I talk to think Jackson was in fact guilty, whilst they think Savile was innocent.
