In 2003, Bashir conducted a series of interviews with pop singer Michael Jackson, as a part of an ITV documentary Living with Michael Jackson, which Uri Geller, a pal of Jackson’s, had arranged. Following the broadcast, which was regarded through 14 million inside the UK and 38 million in the US, Jackson complained to the Independent Television Commission and the Broadcasting Standards Commission, accusing Bashir of yellow journalism. In response, Jackson and his personal cameraman launched a rebuttal interview, which confirmed Bashir complimenting Jackson for the “spiritual” best of the Neverland Ranch.

Bashir defended the documentary, stating, “I don’t believe that I’ve betrayed Michael Jackson at all. I agreed that we’d make an honest film approximately his life. The movie was honest with his musical success and gave him every possibility to provide an explanation for himself. I’m no longer accusing anyone of being a toddler molester or a pedophile.”
