Randall Sullivan's "Untouchable"

I'm here today to protest a vicious, malicious, disgusting campaign to try and stop people from reading a very positive book about Michael Jackson.

Thomas A. Mesereau, Jr., Michael Jackson's lead lawyer in the last years of his life, delivers an extraordinary YouTube statement in response to a concerted internet smear campaign to malign a positive portrayal of Michael Jackson in Randall Sullivan’s book “Untouchable: The Strange Life and Tragic Death of Michael Jackson.” Mr. Mesereau takes issue with “disgusting” and “deceitful” efforts to suppress Michael’s fans and others from reading this thoughtful and in-depth book of the life of Michael Jackson.

Mr. Mesereau, who does not have a financial interest in Mr. Sullivan’s book, encourages Michael’s fans, and those seeking a thorough understanding of the life of one of our greatest talents, to read this well-researched and insightful book. To view Mr. Mesereau’s YouTube statement, visit
