Since June 2009, there have been many voting polls from various music websites trying to determine questions such as NME’s “Who was best vocalist?” – or Billboard’s “Who had Best Superbowl Show?” etc… and usually Michael Jackson fans rally to pull their icon to the top. Fact is, the MJGlobal family is the LARGEST Social Network in the world, bar none. When we are polarized we get it done- Except of course when polls are rigged –
After observing suspicious activities on thekingofmusic.com voting site a group of Admins from various Michael Jackson support groups formed a task force to observe, analyze and determine if the site itself was legitimately seeking and tallying votes or a just a shill for some other enterprise. Our findings are as follows:
Mid February 2015, a mysterious site appeard entitled The King of Music … only thing on it was a Poll … at bottom Nemesis Corporation was listed. The end date of the poll was first listed as March 5th 2015 and after a little investigation it was discovered that Elvis was released from Army on that date. Most of the voters considered this was their way of honoring Elvis on a very important day in his life.
The King of Music had no indentifiable owner – Red Flag Number One
Nemesis Corporation facebook account was contacted to ascertain when the poll may end and the following conversation ensued.
The contact at Nemesis claimed no affliation with The King of Music site and laughed it off as just a simple mistake – didn’t seem concerned that his corporation name was on some random music poll.. “kinda weird mixup. No biggie” But please notice in the conversation where they state that they haven’t been able to “redirect feed” (last panel)
“Redirect feed” <– what does this mean exactly ? “The sponsors haven’t gotten back to me” seems to suggest they have previous contacted the sponsors of the poll – “I don’t mind helping you out. You have been very understanding. When I do get lucky with the sponsors of that event. I will definitely let everybody know where the proper link is”
They said, “I don’t mind helping you out” – but not enough to give out the sponsors contact information.
However, soon after that conversaton, the site dropped Nemesis Corp name off the bottom of the poll AND the voting end date changed rather quickly thereafter to January 2016….perhaps to coincide with Elvis Presley birthday?
A poll that goes on for almost a year ? Red Flag Number TWO
We have nothing against Elvis Presley, he is after all King of Rock and has legions of fans who adore him and he has a long list of impressive stats to his honor during his 20 years performing. However, Elvis fans have never been able to vote him to the top of any national or worldwide poll for the last 5 years after Michael Jackson’s death. Yet right out of the band box, he has sat in the number one spot and has never once dropped out of it. Even after a rally by worldwide fans of Michael’s during the evening, by morning, the numbers would reflect only a small gain that would be once again widened as each day progressed. Currently, Elvis holds an almost 6000+ lead over Michael.
To any Michael Jackson fan this is fairly suspicious. Of course, when any commentor questioned the bias of the poll in the site’s comment section, they were told by other commentors that “Michael Jackson fans are sore losers.” To be a Michael Jackson fan one must be made of strong stuff and losing a poll after all that we have endured alongside Michael during his life and afterward has prepared us for much grief. Losing a poll is hardly a heartbreaking moment but we do expect fairness when participating in anything that pits Michael against another singer. Upon further analysis, there can be no denying the poll is highly favorable to Elvis -and that’s the questionable issue.
So, the poll is heavily in favor of Elvis – Red Flag Number THREE
Fourth rather blatant and dubious fact that the poll is not legitmate, is that Freddie Mercury who will generally always be right up there with Michael Jackson at the top, has no foothold at all in this TheKingofMusic poll. This is alarming because Mercury’s fans are a lot like Michael’s ..they love to participate in voting for their icon. Freddie’s fans and Michael’s fans are often in heated head to head battles for the top of any music poll. The fact that the poll has Mercury so low in the ranking is another indicator that not all is kosher in the counting of votes department. Or is it that they are not participating because the writing is on the wall and they know it’s a foregone conclusion that Elvis is set to win? Perhaps.
Freddie Mercury not in the running- Red flag Number FOUR
Additionally, as days passed the site seemed to be expanding- A NEW tab for COMMENTS was added March 10th … and of course as soon as that occurred the site was immediately inundated with the usual immature, caustic MJtrolls. The ones who constantly troll all Michael Jackson videos, articles etc ..so they can spew their baseless venom.
We will not post their comments as most of you know how juvenile and vile they can be. It is to be noted that Elvis is not at all denigrated by Michael’s fans . . . it is not our habit to defame another artist, as Michael himself would only speak glowingly of other artist and was greatly hurt when Eminem displayed such disrespect towards him.
There are few true Elvis fans commenting- but when they do they speak sensibly and with respect – even chastising the MJtrolls for their defamation of Michael based on media lies.
These few but poignant comments by true Elvis fans demsonstrate clearly that the majority of hate comments are originating by the MJtroll in guise of an Elvis fan. In fact, Elvis fans know he deserves better than a rigged poll as his legend is not to be underestimated. His fans clearly adore him, revere and honor him and it is shown in yearly gatherings to celebrate him.
High number of insulting mjtroll comments – Red Flag Number FIVE
Who is the originator of the site then? It would appear to be based in the UK as the date on comments have their standared day/month/year format instead of the month/day /year format used in United States. And the time MJ fans in America are posting is not reflecting properly. Found this person on Elvis UK site promoting the link:
Why keep their identity secret if it’s all above board, honest and being conducted for the right reasons?
The proof as they say is in the pudding – Scrolling back through the comments- Michael Jackson fans who are allowed to comment have many thumbup votes recorded … in fact in such a larger number than Elvis that one cannot help but see a great discrepancy between these two areas of the site. Screencap after screencap shows MJ fans dominating the comment secion and also with impressive thumb ups-
How can it be that the commentors are more in favor of Michael Jackson yet that NOT be reflected in the poll? It defies logic that a person would comment but NOT vote: simply put -the numbers don’t add up.
It it makes no logical sense… ergo Again – we must summize that the poll is rigged for Elvis to win.
But the question then is why, or more importanly- WHO is behind the site?
Is it originated by Elvis fans? It’s doubtful- as demonstrated by the too few comments by real Elvis fans and the two very respectful comments by Elvis fans it would appear not.
Could it be just a way to get the two fan bases in a feudal war while getting a great number of hits for the site? Again, we must emphasise that it is an unidentified site, unlike NME, Billboard, VHI, MTV or any other site that generally runs legitimate music polls.
Let’s examine the new menu tab added March 17th – entitled “The Kings” for more analysis. There doesn’t seem to be any sort of order alphabetically or otherwise for the KINGS- Pictured, are Elvis Presley, FreddieMercury, Jimi Hendrix, Michael Jackson, Jon Bon Jovi, John Lennon, Frank Sinatra, Luciano Pavarotti and Bob Marley in that order – Each bio shorter than the one before and then five more biographies of other artists without pictures posted.
Let’s begin with Elvis bio since it’s the first
QUOTE “Elvis Aaron Presley was born in Tupelo, Mississippi on January 8th, 1935 to Vernon and Gladys Presley. Presley was successfully in three popular music genres: country and western, rock ‘n’ roll, and rhythm and blues. Presley became the first-ever inductee into 3 music halls of fame when it was announced that he would be inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame on November 27, 2001, in Nashville, Tennessee. He won 3 Grammys, also receiving the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award at age 36, and has been inducted into multiple music halls of fame. Forbes named Presley as the 2nd top earning dead celebrity with $55 million as of 2011. Several years of prescription drug abuse severely damaged his health, and he died in 1977 at the age of 42.”
The mention his accolades awards and induction into various Hall of Fames but No mention that Elvis died of an overdose.
While mentioning Elvis is 2nd top earning dead celebrity in 2011 – they fail to mention it was Michael in 1st with 170Million.
In fact, since 2010, Michael has remained 1st in this celebrity earning distinction category except for one year. In 2012, his dearest friend Elizabeth Taylor, who passed away 2011, bounced him from the first position, but he regained 1st in 2013, 2014 and with great expectation we can assume 2015 will follow suit.
It is also important to note that while Elvis earnings is consistently $55Million every year -Michael’s has varied-2009 90Million, 2010 275Million, 2011 170Million, 2012 145Million, 2013 160Million, 2014-170Million.
Michael Jackson’s bio on “The Kings” menu tab.
QUOTE: “Michael Joseph Jackson was born on August 29, 1958, in Gary, Indiana, to an African-American working-class family. Jackson’s 1982 album Thriller is the best-selling album of all time. Jackson became the first music artist in history to have a top 10 single in the Billboard Hot 100 in 5 different decades when “Love Never Felt So Good” reached number 9 on May 21, 2014. Jackson travelled the world attending events honouring his humanitarianism and in 2000, the Guinness World Records accepted him for supporting 39 charities, more than any other entertainer. “Scream” (the most expensive music video ever made, costing $7 million to produce) got Michael and Janet a Grammy Award for Best Music Video. Jackson died of acute propofol and benzodiazepine intoxication on June 25, 2009, after suffering from cardiac arrest.”
Biased & insufficient biographies – Red Flag Number SIX
No mention of his Jackson5 lead singer role, nor his numerous Hall of Fame inductions or solo awards- Nor his 13 solo Grammy’s, his cross genre musical accolades: Pop, Rock and Rhythm & Blues – and distinguised honor the Only singer to be inducted into Dance Hall of Fame – and the VMA Vanguard Award that was named Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.
Above and beyond his musical awards- Thriller has been designated and honored in TWO Library of Congress categories- One for song and one for Thriller short film, National Recording Registry & National Film Registry respectively. It’s important to mention Thriller is the only entry in the National Film Registry that is a music video.
Michael Jackson has been honored with music awards and humanitarian award and eight Guinnes Book World records – more than any other artist.
Again, we find the omission of Michael’s unique awards to be another indication that the site is biased.
Also curiously absent is any mention that Michael was killed by Conrad Murray who was convicted of manslaughter and recieved a 4yr prison sentence that was later shortened to 2yr due to prison overcrowding.
The last sentence “Michael Jackson died of acute propofol and benzodiazepine intoxication on June 25, 2009, after suffering from cardiac arrest” is highly misleading and insinuates he died by his own hand.
Again, this reeks of bias and an inability to present Michael Jackson as a man who not only deserves honor and respect for his solo accomplisments in music, dance, or short film and that he should be considered and deserves the desgination -the King of Music.
So we reiterate, is this about HITS? It is to be noted that any website which might later wish to produce income, has to prove it can draw “clicks” or “hits” before adverstisers will allow banners. The advertising revenue on a website can bring in a pretty nice size chunk of change if enough advertisers commit.
While the site has no visible “counter” widget it can still have a statistics page keeping track of the IP numbers and number of visits to the site per day ..etc…
– Is that the goal of the site? Collectng IP numbers to what end?
Many Michael Jackson fans have already declined to participate in this poll due to its glaring inconsistencies and bias – A notice was sent out warning that voting on the site might be bringing revenue into a MJhate site. Not only does the bias seem to exist in the poll itself but the Admin or Webmaster of the site does not admonish those who make totally inaccurate and defaming comments about Michael Jackson who has been totally exonerated in a court of law – Again it is noted in comments.
Some have expressed their concern about the legitmacy of the poll and why baseless insults are allowed- Concerns written in English, French, Turkish, Spanish and Portuguese indicate the true nature of Michael’s international appeal.
There are a plethora of Michael Jackson fans all over the globe visiting this site and posting in their own language and many of them are noticing the trend and they cry “Fraud”.
So -Comment section is biasly moderated – Red Flag Number SEVEN
In fact most of the MJtrolls comments on the polling site, have nothing at all to do with Michael’s music – Instead they speak of Wade Robson’s claims that have yet to be considered believable enough to go to trial.
Why do MJtrolls troll? Here’s the crux of it in a comment by LoveUSev
“The only black to which the whites have bowed.”
and in reply another commented –
“You have nailed it. This is why the MJtroll comes forward .. .. Michael said it himself.. as soon as multitudes of white women started screaming they wanted to sleep with him.. .. the media suddenly needed to present him as a pedophile… … … as it broke a precedent in white supremacist culture of United States ..
Also the fact that Michael Jackosn bought the “Beatle” Catalog … this also riled up racist sensibilities .. How dare a black man have the nerve to OWN the publishing rights to white rockers music when black artists have been legendarily deprived of their own royalties by Record Companies.. ..
This and his enormous world wide influence is why Michael has been targeted ..”
Michael Jackson said it himself in 2001 – he speaks of racism and media manipulation of facts – Pls read the subtitles as the audio is a bit sketchy-
A beautiful site LaCeingaSmiled offers a whole range of people and their suppportive words to Michael and about Michael. Some of them knew Michael sometimes for decades should be perused for real testimony of his nature and innocence.
For information regarding how baseless MJtrolls comments regarding Robson’s ridiculous claims can be refuted, please visit Vindicate MJ -This extortion attempt is no different than the one executed by Evan Chandler in 1993 and similar ruse in 2003/2005 by the Arvizos.
Since the site admin is not moderating the trolls comment it would seem that they are providing and promoting MJ Hate propaganda – This is why a task force was organized to promote the vote, commenting so that proof could be gathered. If we are going to suggest Michael Jackson fans ignore this polls we have to show he reasons why and we think we have done so-
Why is this happening?
Michael Jackson’s popularity has grown NOT diminished in his passing – Not only has the MJEstate been able to make unparalled income generating project for his heirs, they have increased his fanbase by re-igniting old fans and inspiring a whole new generation of Michael Jackson fan, and more are yet to be born.
His fanbase will continue to increase as ongoing academic study has been educating the masses and brilliant posts like “Moonwalk in Academia” which highlights how study of Michael has enlightened the world.
It would appear that PR battle the MJtrolls have waged since June 2009 has failed. The media at large could not care less about Wade Robson laughable case – only a few tabloids have printed any updates and so far, his attorneys have been unable to prove to the presiding judge that the claim has any merit- Same goes for the pathetic Safechuck.
In the past these MJtrolls have been desperate to attach themselves to any site to spread their false information and this is no exception.
They gloam onto this kind of site and spew against Micahel Jackson simply because the facts that completely exonerate Michael are now readily avaiable. Many sites are easily perused to educate the masses of people who were completely duped by the one sided mischaracterization of not only Michael but the biased trial reporting of the media.
We will be happy to add on any urls to other sites that any reader would like to add –please do so in the comment section.
Please visit sites that include FBI files, court testimony, court transcripts and other evidence that prove Micahel Jackson totally innocent –
Complete tagged Wade Robson category.- Vindicate MJ
Tom Mesereau-..”I will defend Michael Jackson to my last breath. I know he was innocent, I know he was targeted because he was wealthy and famous and perceived as very vulnerable and that made him a target for all kinds of people.People who got anywhere near Michael Jackson thought they could profit in one way or another. People wanted MONEY from him from the earliest times. Even in his darkest hours, people were suing him, even in the most troubling time imaginable, people were after his MONEY. The pressure on this poor soul was just enormous. He was a brilliant genius and a kind, gentle soul who was tortured, exploied, punished for things he hadn’t done. I will always feel honored to have defended him” -Thomas Mesereau-
We, as members of Michael Jackson Global family with 100Million + members believe that this poll is not legitimate for all the reasons listed – Because we see that our votes are not being counted fairly. We witness the constant vile manner in which MJtrolls have been allowed to overrun the comment section. The only thing we don’t know is who is behind it but it really doesn’t matter because we KNOW the facts speak the truth – and we don’t need to participate in polls that will never reflect a fair perspective.
Michael Jackson is the King of Music –
Here are just a few reasons-
It was Pepsi that revived their Marketing Campaign with Michael Jackson in 2012 –
Michael Jackson fans are pleased to note it is Michael ‘s songs that are being used at BlackLivesMatter rallies.. and rallies all across the world that speak of PEACE and healing across the Globe.
It is Michael’s song We Are the World sung for Pope Francis in Vatican City Celebrations of FAMILY by a CHILDREN’S choir.
It is Michael’s artwork displayed in Children’s Hosptial of Los Angeles presented by his children and Mayor of Los Angeles ..
It is Michael’s TWO Circe du Soleil shows that have been listed as best selling shows-
It is Michael’s Xscape Album that is selling worldwide more than living artists- According to Sony’s September 2014 YTD analysis Michael Jackson’s XSCAPE is biggest earner —
Michael Jackson name still SELLS — his Brand is strong —Jeep’s endorsement deal with MJ Estate using “Love Never Felt So Good” as their 2014 Song of Summer Sales campaign-
“Mr. Francois said he pounced on the “huge opportunity” to link the Jeep brand to a “priceless” unreleased Jackson song.”
“Jeep is an American icon as much as Michael Jackson is an American icon,” said Mr. Francois, who also serves as head of the Fiat brand. “Jeep is timeless as much as Michael Jackson is timeless.”
Result? –> “Jeep sold more than 1 million SUVs globally in 2014 for the first time in the brand’s history.”
Yes.. Michael Jackson is the King of Music as he is the MOST known human being on this planet after Jesus. We may not agree with everything Mr. Comer says in this article but he makes some valid points of Michael’s enduring legacy in this world.
