We’ve often commented here at TD&F about how different people will communicate in sometimes very different ways when tragedy strikes their circle. Some say nothing and cling to their privacy. Others use the media spotlight to highlight an issue or concern. There’s no right or wrong. So it really caught my attention when former Michael Jackson lawyer Brian Oxman pulled no punches in the wake of the news of the superstar’s death, saying he had been concerned for quite some time about the “enablers” who were keeping Jackson in an “over-medicated” state. He said he has vowed for a while now that, should Jackson suddenly drop dead, he would not hold his tongue in exposing a situation which he said makes that of Anna Nicole Smith pale by comparison. Strong allegations in the wake of the death of a mega-star … but a communications play which is cutting through, no doubt about it.
