Sony has just officially announced a new Michael Jackson single to hit the shelves on October 12th(2009)-"This Is It!" will be launched to coincide with it's eponymous soundtrack and film[Edit: Well, Sony has misled the public once again.

Did Sony conspire with Music Television to embarrass Michael Jackson? Was it all just a big misunderstanding? Or was MTV reluctant to give Mr. Jackson his trophy? Read on and decide for yourself...

Did MTV Conspire Against Michael Jackson?
 On August 29, 2002, MTV held their annual Video Music Awards in New York's famous Radio City Music Hall. That date also happened to be Michael Jackson's 44th birthday.

 Jenkins further details his once-in-a-lifetime experience of being in the same room as his idol. Of hanging out at Neverland and layering over a hundred snippets(both completed and unfinished) under the microscope.
There's no need to rehash the whole interview so let me take you to the place...
