Time to Tune Your Bullshit Detector

So before it gets too topsy-turvy to know which end is up, let's identify a few of the clowns. Over on Pulp, Bob Norman has a bead on one of them. Al Malnik claims to be a close friend and executor of Jackson's estate, but he doesn't seem to have any recent evidence of that friendship. Norman talked to a guy who says Jackson tossed Malnik out of his inner circle years ago.
And be skeptical of what you hear from Daphne Barak, a celebrity journalist (or is that journalist celebrity?) who has a knack for swooping in just as a falling star hits the pavement. Barak apparently ingratiated herself with Jackson's former nanny, Grace Rwaramba. Mallika Chopra, daughter of feel-good guru Deepak Chopra and a close friend of the nanny's, casts Barak as a manipulator who was eager to cash in that investment the moment Jackson turned up dead.
