"Our standards are as high as The New York Times."

Whether you agree with that statement or not, it must be said that once again, TMZ broke a story before anyone else in reporting that Michael Jackson, was, indeed, dead.

Last week I was able to catch Harvey, literally on the run, in this case, on his way to work, at 5:30 a.m. (!) This interview proves that Harvey Levin, the "Prince of Paparazzi," is, indeed, "a lawya!"

Harvey Levin a lawyer, legal analyst, American television producer, and a celebrity reporter.

He has worked in various legal roles in the entertainment industry. For years, he was a legal reporter on KCBS-TV, in Los Angeles, where he reported on the O.J. Simpson murder trial. In 1994, Levin almost caused murder charges against Simpson to be tossed out, when he presented a video on KCBS-TV that allegedly showed Prosecutor Marcia Clark searching Simpson’s home before a search warrant was issued. Within days, however, Levin was forced to retract the story and apologize on the air.

In 1996, Levin moved to New York to work as a legal analyst for The People's Court (he had appeared on the show during the 1980's as a legal consultant during Doug Llewelyn's years) and deactivated his California bar license. Six years later, in 2002, Levin served as creator and executive producer for "Celebrity Justice," until it was cancelled after three years.

Today Levin is managing editor at TMZ.com, a celebrity news and gossip site launched by Time Warner-AOL, in December 2005. He also executive produces and hosts, TMZ on TV. He is a frequent guest on CNN's "Larry King Live."

Interview is 15 minutes & taped.
