Billed as a humanitarian event, the "Jackson Family Honors" taping here Saturday had more of the feel of a TV melodrama. The family's most famous member, beleaguered pop star Michael Jackson, appeared to be a reluctant participant in the more than two-hour production, and the family's most mercurial member, LaToya Jackson, contended that she was barred from the program.

Some people will go to any lengths for journalism. If there are a million stories in the naked city, this is one gal who will go the distance to uncover them. Ever on the lookout for that little slice of life that will reveal the whole pie, the crumb that unlocks the loaf, the metaphor that offers the key to the analogy, I entered my neighborhood bookstore. Disguised as an ordinary person, I was on a research mission.

Michael Jackson's sister LaToya hinted Wednesday that she believes her brother is guilty of sexually molesting young boys and of paying off their families to keep them quiet. "I just think Michael needs help," LaToya Jackson told reporters at a Tel Aviv news conference, according to wire service reports. "This has been going on since 1981, and it's not just one child."

Home Wasn't Auctioned: LaToya Jackson put a last-minute stop to Wednesday's scheduled auction of her share of the 18-room Encino Jackson family home in Encino by coming up with $511,000 for the Internal Revenue Service. The payment covered back taxes owed for 1988, 1989 and 1991. Also halted was the auction of her interest--worth an estimated $23,000--in a three-bedroom Encino condominium she owns with her superstar brother.

A Valentine's Day concert by LaToya Jackson has been canceled because her presence would violate the values of Malaysian culture, the Culture and Tourism Ministry said today. The department secretary, Mukhtar Abdullah, said Jackson, who posed nude in Playboy magazine last year, did not meet some of the conditions imposed by the government on foreign artists performing in Malaysia. He did not say what these conditions were.

One of Michael Jackson's lawyers took issue Thursday with comments by the entertainer's sister suggesting that Jackson had molested young boys over a number of years. "I don't believe there's any merit whatsoever to anything she said," said Howard Weitzman, one of Jackson's attorneys, echoing denials by Jackson's mother and several other siblings.

So many victims in the news this week: slain Polly Klaas, gunned-down Oxnard cop James E. O'Brien, slaughtered commuters in New York. . . . And James Elliott Singletary. Singletary still has his life, at least, though not his reputation. That may be indelibly stained. Arrested and booked last Friday night in connection with a spate of youth molestations in the San Fernando Valley, he is a classic example of an innocent citizen getting abused by an overzealous media. Abused big time.

This is sleazy tabloid stuff--a vindictive look at the Jackson family from the point of view of its least talented member. The biggest news is her accusation that father Joseph was a child-abusing, adulterous monster. Some of the more sensational charges that she has been making in interviews aren't actually in the book, but are likely to attract readers who assume they are.
