To whomever this may concern. We are signing this to voice our displeasure with Mr. Bashir joining your staff. While he is a "name" and has made a lot of money for your network please consider the following. He conned Michael Jackson into sharing his home, his family, and his dinner table with him. Unedited footage from his alleged "documentary" has shown him telling Mr. Jackson to his face things that are outright lies if he was being truthful in his film. He also cut several of Mr. Jacksons comments in order to present him as a dishonest man or a man with no concept of reality. Editing film deceptively is something that warps societies views on our history. You may hate Mr. Jackson and everything he stands for, but he deserves to be judged by his own words and actions, not by what camera angles and voiceovers try to parley. We want the truth to be presented about the people who have shaped our times politically and sociologically.

    • How can Martin Bashir call himself a journalist? He is nothing more than a sleezy tabloid reporter who should not be on such a news-worthy show such as "Niteline". A disgrace to people everywhere!

    • You people hired a lousy lying tabloid journalist to one of the most respected networks in this country. You should do the right things and remove him before you tarnish your own reputation any further.

    • It is such a shame that Martin Bashir, such a conniving, unprofessional journalist, has been on ABC Networks for so long. I have also lost a lot of respect for Diana Sawyer for her unprofessionalism and disrespect towards the King of Pop in her interviews with him. This type of biased work is just outright disgusting. My hope is that Jackson's death will shed true light on the grossness of journalists like Martin Bashir.

    • Martin Bashir not only admitted to spreading countless lies about Michael Jackson, but he also shamlessley USED him so he could destroy his name and reputation in many ways. He had ALL the footage that shows him as the innnocent man he really is cropped out, and twisted his words to make him seem like a pedophile. All of this he did for money and his own self-aggrandizement. This biased interview was pushed so far that Jackson himself had to attend a court case to prove himself. When it was revealed that he was not guilty of ANY of the charges brought forth, this interview continued to be aired, leaving a great deal still in suspicion of his innocence. The huge amount of stress the court cases brought on caused Jackson's dependency on painkilers, leading to his premature death. To me, it seems ASTOUNDING that ANY television program would hire a man such as he, who has worked so hard to bring down the very morals of honesty and truthfullness America stands for.

    • Martin Bashir to put it lightly is a lying scumbag who played a significant part to destroying the livlihood of such an honourable man (Michale Jackson) . He may have made a great deal of money for you but would you risk his lies to affect the future performance of your channel in the future if he continues to make up illogical claims about innocent people?

    • I never understood why ABC would stoop to Martin Bashir's tabloid level and hire him. No tabloid journalist should be on ABC. Leave that poor talent to Headline News.
