NBC Only Doing A Show On Jacko’s Nose
January 23, 2003 – Jay Leno joked during his Tonight Show monologue on Wednesday, “Michael Jackson reportedly furious at NBC’s ‘Dateline’ show is gonna do an entire show about his nose. Did you hear about this? Yeah. All the different noses. Doing a whole show, a whole hour on his nose. And his publicist issued a statement today saying they think it’s horrible NBC is doing a story about Michael Jackson’s face. And NBC said, ‘We’re not doing his whole face, we’re only doing his nose. His face would be a miniseries’.”
Jermaine Jackson In Fury Over ‘Dateline’ Special
January 23, 2003 – The New York Daily News reports Jermaine Jackson said in a statement yesterday that NBC producers claimed an upcoming episode of ‘Dateline’ would be about “the family’s legacy and that they later learned the program had an insulting, degrading and insensitive story line about his face.” The network had wanted the Jackson family to do an interview as part of the special. An NBC spokeswoman says ‘Dateline’ producers still plans to air ‘Michael Jackson Unmasked’ on February 17th and “hope Jermaine Jackson rethinks his position and grants us an interview.”
