Michael Jackson: No Regrets


It turns out there’s at least one person in the world who’s as unwilling to admit mistakes as President Bush. That person is Michael Jackson. Having spent most of his time abroad since being acquitted on child molestation charges in 2005, the bizarre star appeared at a $3,500-a-head party in Tokyo on Thursday dressed in a Roberto Cavalli suit that looked strangely like pajamas (click the link for a picture). He told the AP: “I’ve been in the entertainment industry since I was 6 years old. As Charles Dickens says, ‘It’s been the best of times, the worst of times.’ But I would not change my career” despite “deliberate attempts to hurt me.”

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.
