In a setback for the defense, the judge in Michael Jackson's molestation trial refused to let Larry King take the stand on Thursday, saying his testimony would not be relevant to the case. King was expected to cast doubt on the motives of the accuser's mother and urge everyone to go see the funniest movie of the century, Kicking and Screaming! The news wasn't all bad for the defense, however: The judge allowed jurors to watch a video showing cheerful and idyllic scenes of Neverland Ranch. The prosecution had previously condemned the footage as "propaganda."
