MIAMI — TMZ’s Harvey Levin to try and pull his head out of Justin Bieber’s butt.

It’s way up there, and Harvey’s losing track of reality.

Ever since Bieber was charged with DUI on his own admission he’d been smoking weed in Miami Beach Jan. 23, TMZ has been on a campaign to embarrass Miami Beach Police and Miami-Dade County State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle.

And it’s looked downright silly doing it.

Since the incident, the Los Angeles website has claimed that: Bieber was not under the influence, then barely under the influence; Bieber wasn’t drag racing; Miami Beach Police falsified their own report; the cop who got Bieber is a bad cop; and the site revealed the state attorney’s attempt to get Bieber into a routine pre-trial intervention program offered to all first time would-be perpetrators.

Never mind that these negotiation aren’t supposed to be conducted in public.

So, what going on here?

It’s called damage control — and TMZ‘s a willing participant!

First, Scooter Braun, Bieber’s manager, has been calling dozens of Miami Beach people involved with the incident, I’m told.

Braun, and Bieber’s lawyers, have asked for documents, tapes, videos, GPS records and even pulled out the arresting officers’ work records.

Then Braun personally grilled sources.

And when Scooter received kernels of information, he called TMZ with them.

In essence, he did his job.

But Braun also has been allowed to lead the TMZ’s coverage of his client.

That’s like a homeowner giving a burglar the keys to his front door!

What’s TMZ’s motivation in taking to spoon-feeding like a hungry six-month-old?

Well, TMZ made Bieber – and Bieber news creates heavy traffic for any website, including Gossip Extra.

In trying to pollute our jury pool and spewing out whathever non-sense it’s fed, TMZ is merely protecting its franchise.

Believe it or not, Bieber’s hangers-on are on the phone with TMZ several times a day – and even report negative stories about the guy instantly to the website.

Whether they have Bieber’s blessing to do this is left to speculation, although I bet they do.

Yes, Bieber is that dumb — although even extremely negative stories these days sell music and movies.

As for TMZ, they’ll continue trying to discredit gratuitously everyone in Miami Beach who’s not Bieber.

We just hope readers will be outraged by TMZ‘s shoddy, dishonest work — and pick local, proven, accurate and legitimate news organization for their Bieber news!
