The letter to ITV/Kelvin McKenzie & the media

  • on: November 10, 2010, 07:12:39 PM

As some of us discussed in this thread viewtopic.php?f=48&t=15577 we want to send a letter out to ITV/Kelvin McKenzie about his slanderous statements he made on the 'This Morning' show that was broadcasted on November 9th on ITV. The idea is we all send out the same e-mail, signed with our name/username and "Michael's Army of L.O.V.E." to ITV, Ofcom and all media outlets possible, hoping one or more will report on it.

The e-mail should be sent on Friday November 12 to:

ITV: Adam.Crozier@itv.com
Director England and Secretary to Ofcom: Damian.Radcliffe@ofcom.org.uk & breakingnews@tmz123.com, so make sure that one is in the cc as well. Just in case I think we should also mail it to them using the contact form: http://www.tmz.com/contact/contact-us

Here is the list of media e-mail addresses (just click the image):



And for those on Twitter, here are the Twitter accounts:



Here is the letter that TheRunningGirl wrote. You can use this one, but of course you can write one yourself as well.



Quote
Dear Madam or Sir,

I am writing to formally complain about Kevin McKenzie totally unprofessional portrayal of Michael Jackson on ITV during the This morning programme aired on the 9th November 2010 at 10:30.
Kevin McKenzie's comments on Michael Jackson were inaccurate, biased, cruel, and breached numerous sections of the OFCOM Broadcast Code.

Section 2.2 of the code demands that, "Factual programmes or items or portrayals of factual matters must not materially mislead the audience.” MacKenzie's comments were clearly misleading. He ignored the facts and evidence presented at Jackson's trial and dismissed the verdict. He also ignored the children's firsthand accounts of their lives with Jackson in order to portray them instead as having been 'corrupted' and said that they were potential victims of 'abuse'.

Section 2.3 of the code demands that, "Broadcasters must ensure that material which may cause offence is justified by the context." MacKenzie's comments were patently not justified by the context. In a discussion about an interview between Oprah Winfrey and Michael Jackson's children, MacKenzie irrelevantly raised the subject of Jackson's trial and proceeded to dismiss the verdict, insinuating that Jackson was a child molester.

Section 7.1 of the code demands that, "Broadcasters must avoid unjust or unfair treatment of individuals or organisations in programmes." This section of the code is constantly flouted when dealing with Michael Jackson. Does calling somebody a child abuser when they've been acquitted in a court of law constitute treating somebody unjustly or unfairly?

Section 7.9 of the code demands that, "Before broadcasting a factual programme, including programmes examining past events, broadcasters should take reasonable care to satisfy themselves that material facts have not been presented, disregarded or omitted in a way that is unfair to an individual or organisation." Material facts were clearly omitted and disregarded during Kelvin MacKenzie's unprovoked diatribe against Jackson. He ignored the facts, evidence and verdict in Jackson's trial and accused the star of being a child molester. The host did not point out Jackson's acquittal, either. MacKenzie also ignored the children's comments about their upbringing and proceeded to portray Jackson as the exact opposite of what they claimed.

Section 7.11 of the code demands that, "If a programme alleges wrongdoing or incompetence or makes other significant allegations, those concerned should normally be given an appropriate and timely opportunity to respond." Clearly, Jackson could not respond to Kelvin Mackenzie's inaccurate allegations, but no representative of Jackson's family or estate was invited to appear on the show or to offer a rebuttal in the aftermath.

This is totally unacceptable and I am seeking formal actions from ITV and OFCOM on this matter. Propagating lies is not what I understand the media to be about and ITV needs to take some steps in formally apologizing about this totally inaccurate portrayal of Michael Jackson; at least equal airing time should be spent on the apologies as initially given to Kelvin McKenzie to vent his inaccurate allegations.

I would appreciate to be kept informed of the status of this complaint.

Yours Sincerely

xxxxxxxxxxx (Your name & Country)
Michael Jackson Army of L.O.V.E

So whenever you have just a few minutes time, please send the e-mail. It's time we stand up against the media, instead of just complaining about them.

Thanks for doing this Souza.  Michael deserves our support and the Kelvin McKenzie of this World deserves to have their journalistic license removed!

DONE!

Souza, I sent the letter to many/most of your media contacts, but got many "failures to deliver"... So I think the list of media contacts requires some updating.

I'm on it doggone it!  How low can an adult "professional" get :roll:   Making disparaging remarks about parentage and one's children is definitely crossing the lines.  And to have the audacity to do it on live t.v. :shock:   What an asshole!  This jerk-off needs a wake up call :evil:  :evil:

Guys, Friday! Not yet! We need to bomb them at once or they think one person made several accounts.

I see I forgot to mention that, I edited the post.

Okay!

I got an email a few minutes ago after sending them - maybe we should send one of the mails on Friday  to Caroline instead of Damian?

I am out of the office and on Annual Leave until Monday 29th November.

If you query is urgent please contact my colleague Caroline Sims (caroline.sims@ofcom.org.uk / 0207 981 3561).

Otherwise, I will get back to you on my return.

Many thanks,
Damian

Is there a certain time Friday? I ask since I will be enjoying Friday while many of you will still be slugging it out on Thursday.  :lol:   8-)

The email you sent us all doesn't say Friday in it either, and some of us may not come by this thread so maybe you could edit the subject line...  :!:

And just because....
