JACKSON: MORE TWISTS: Could the trial of Michael Jackson get any rummer? Following reports on an LA radio station that amongst the items seized during the search of Neverland were pictures of naked boys, the Jackson camp issued a high profile denial. The odd thing is, of course, the story would have more or less stayed with KFI radio had team Jackson not rushed out a high-profile quashing of the story - so are we to assume they're incompetent, or that they had ain interest in bouncing this story out now. Attorney Thomas Mesereau's statement runs:

"The Michael Jackson defense team has learned that information is circulating throughout the media regarding alleged photographs supposedly seized from Mr. Jackson's residence. That information is false. The prosecution has confirmed that it is false. We demand an immediate retraction from any news or media organization that made such an announcement."

KFI news director apparently turned down Jackson's demand for a retraction and is standing by the story, although it's not clear if he means that in a Greg Dyke or Dan Rather fashion.
