It’s the type of media report that makes you hunch up and look twice – ‘Michael Jackson Ghost Spotted Pacing The Corridors of Neverland’.
To be honest, at first I thought it was nothing more than another dose of ‘bad taste’ paparazzi/media BS but after checking the story out online…
I couldn’t help but feel a little intrigued.
The Initial Video
Mr. King and his CNN cronies were quick to laugh off these outlandish suggestions.
They explained that the supposed spirit sighting was nothing more than a trick of light in which a crew-member had cast a shadow onto a distant wall.
Kinda threw a spanner in the works of paranormal enthusiasts like me!
But this video really did catch my attention – it certainly could be nothing more than a trick of light but at the same time…
It could also be something a lot more!

I have to be honest with you here – the video stuck in my mind, and it wasn’t about to leave in a hurry!
A few months after it’s release I decided to put my investigator’s hat on and hit the web for some more info on the subject.
It wasn’t long before I stumbled upon a a dude named Donald Ryles PhD who had left a post/long comment on a WordPress blog.
Now, Mr. Ryles had come across a YouTube video posted by a 40-something Canadian who was part of the film crew that caught the supposed ghost.
His YouTube name is CCPaintball. Here is what he had to say about the video:
“CNN played this video originally Live! I recorded it not knowing what i had just gotten on tape. While my friend watched the tape later that night, he noticed something funny in one of the scenes. We laughed about the Michael ghost joke but thought nothing of it. Later while searching the net i realized others have seen this strange shadow too. So i slowed it down and sharpened the picture to the best of my ability. Its not much but if gives you something to think about. Is CNN trying to hide something or is it another “accident” caught on film. You decide. Personally after seeing this clip i wasnt convinced but if you watch other clips aired later on CNN, you will see that this section of the film had been cut out or changed. Why would CNN want to hide this??? I dont know, but it seems a little fishy to me.”
Michael Jackson Ghost Spotted
Strange stuff indeed. Did CNN make a subtle attempt to cover up the original Michael Jackson video? If they did why would they even consider doing something like this – they are the media after all?
