Could this site be completely wrong and Michael Jackson was really misunderstood and innocent all along? Everyone below would say yes. Despite the documentary Leaving Neverland having had some effect on what most people think, there’s still a lot of people who believe Michael Jackson is innocent. We’re not a fan of the way these sites, books and documentaries treat the accusers, but at the same time we do want everyone to look at both sides of this debate.
There’s so many sites dedicated to vindicate Jackson from the child abuse allegations over the years it’s difficult to list them all, but we’ve made an attempt the more notable ones.
Arguably the best researched of the pro-Jackson websites, and seems like the “go-to” source for many fans and defenders. Very dedicated site. Right before Leaving Neverland was announced they also made a youtube channel with a documentary on Wade Robson called «Michael Jackson and Wade Robson: The Real Story» which was spread on social media and online publications and got over 2 million views.
Ever seen a logo of Michael Jackson’s with a «Innocent» sign over his mouth with «Facts don’t lie. People do.» under it? This is its origins. The site was launched before Leaving Neverland documentary was released to the public, trying to combat the effects of the documentary they understood were coming. They were also responsible for a bus campaign in London. They also have flyers in different languages they urge people to print out.
Quite an active and ambitious group of people running this website. Their big project is to prove Michael Jackson innocent once and for all. We wish them good luck on that project. They also have a youtube channel and has regular streams.
One of the bigger «pro-innocence” sites where a Russian woman has written mile long posts defending Michael Jackson for many years to vindicate Michael Jackson. The posts can be a bit lengthy and rambly to read, but they’re quite investigative.
A Michael Jackson site focusing on rebutting the Leaving Neverland documentary and any other news to defend Michael Jackson. Also quite active on twitter.
The other Vindication 2.0 site that was active for many years, but has slowed down in later years.
DailyMichael that has kept news on lawsuits around Michael Jackson. Covers a lot of the lawsuits surrounding Michael Jackson, and has some legal papers and such.
The opposite of this site it seems? Not much on here.
Here’s some others:

It has Maury Povich as a host wandering around in Neverland. “Private Home Movies” is a release of Jackson’s own footage taken at Neverland where he hangs around with children possibly with the motivation of showing its all innocent. Michael himself is a host of the documentary serving commentary along the way.

King Jordan Radio
While not an exclusive Michael Jackson podcast/radio show they’ve had several shows over the years dedicated to Michael Jackson and the allegations and has had Tom Mesereau, Charles Thomson, Aphrodite Jones, Geraldine Hughes and others covering the allegations from a pro-innocent point of view.
Aphrodite Jones has been beloved by the Jackson community for her book «Conspiracy” where she makes an argument Jackson was innocent and framed in the 2005 trial.

Geraldine Hughes was a secretary for the first lawyer the Chandlers worked with during the 1993 allegations. She claimed inside information proving the Chandlers wasn’t telling the truth, and wrote about this in her book «Redemption», a book (allegedly) even praised by Michael’s father Joe Jackson. She’s also spoken in public and been on fan podcasts and documentaries.
Michael Jacksons niece Brandi Jackson got relevant to the Jackson cases because she dated one of the accusers Wade Robson for many years. (Although we are not entirely sure why..)
There’s a lot of books that in one way or the other claims Michael Jackson was innocent. We imagine most fan books and most positive biographies are, but here’s some where the books specifically deals with the allegations.

Analysis of the the 2005 trial where the author uses court transcripts and documents and her own commentary to explain why Jackson was innocent and acquitted in this trial.
