Oprah Airs Jackson, Molestation Shows Back-to-Back

11/2/2010 6:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Oprah Winfrey may not get a Christmas card from Michael Jackson's family this year ... because she's airing the tell-all interview with MJ's children back-to-back with a special on child molestation.

Michael Jackson molestation:
Oprah's big interview with MJ's kids -- Prince, Paris, and Blanket -- is scheduled to air next Monday ... but according to Oprah's website, the talk show host is airing a show the Friday before entitled "200 Adult Men Who Were Molested Come Forward."

Interestingly ... the Jacksons had beef with Oprah over her programming decisions back in 2005 ... when she did a show on pedophilia during jury deliberations in Michael Jackson's molestation trial.

A rep for Oprah's production company tells TMZ, "There is no connection whatsoever between the two shows. This is purely coincidental."

The audience ourselves should become cleverer. That's the key.

Oprah should not air the show until a week later because she know his kids will be on the show on Monday.i think it all about the ratings, for Tyler perry movie since she going of public air she really trying to throw these under the bus. That not far trying to tell these kids about there father like that, for crying out loud he in his grave he cant defend his self.

Why is Oprah doing all these molestation interviews?? She did not protect those little girls from being raped at her school. I wonder why? She recently had some type of spend the night with little girls. I wonder why? Maybe, maybe...it just might take one to know one. Since Oprah has lost her credibility, I have serious doubts that she ever was molested. And, Oprah..get over it....you never even had a chance..."the wrath of a woman scorned"!

Damn, she's Devil! She shouldn't use MJ's children like that! Katherine should've never allowed such interview! Michael would be pissed off!
When you die, Oprah, you'll go to Hell. You don't have a sigle drop of ethics.

LEAVE MICHAEL JACKSON ALONE!

This is typical Oprah Winfrey--a woman with a sick, obsessed mind.
I wonder if Katherine's getting senile & unfit to be the guardian of Michael Jackson's children. After all Winfrey has said & done in the past about Michael Jackson, she should not have been allowed in the same house as his children, let alone interview them. Are the rumors about Katherine's greed true?

If Oprah really thought Michael was guilty, I doubt she'd have done a show remembering him last September, or that she'd have done a show on "This is It" promoting the film. Oprah doesn't need ratings at this point - she has plenty of "big" people who want to come on her show during its last year. She makes no bones about voicing the fact that she thinks OJ is guilty - even though he was found not guilty (same as Michael) by a jury. So I doubt she'd hold back if she thought Michael did it.

I do think Oprah has overdone it with the molestation issue. She talks about it ad nauseum, and the other day on her show she quoted a statistic that said 1 out of 3 men have been molested. Sorry, I don't believe it's that high. Where does she get these figures? Jane Fonda said it's true but no one talks about it. If no one talks about it, then how do we know it's 1 in 3???

I think that Oprah's next show on molestation (how many times is she going to bring it up this year?) probably really does have no connection whatsoever to the Jackson interview. She brings it up all the time - even on shows where it is not the main topic. She was bound to bring it up on a show that aired near the Jackson episode. I don't think it's any kind of a dig.

Regarding the question of why Katherine didn't pick a friendlier show to interview her and Michael Jackson's children, I would guess that either:
1. Oprah paid her more money than other shows could; or
2. She (Katherine) has become a bit senile & unfit to continue as guardian for his children.

Possibly both guesses are correct.

Oprah paid the Jackson's ( Katherine) to talk to her. That is how it is done in their messy little screwed up holly-weird society.
The higher the offer....that's who gets the prize!
It sucks! I wish Katherine spoke with Geraldo instead, at least he never dishonored MJ, he believed he was innocent.
The Jackson family have all been mentally programed to follow the highest bidder too! "Anything for money".
Exception would be Randy and Marlon Jackson, they must be soooo pissed about this!
Oprah disgusts me! How can she even walk around and show her face after pulling crap like this! Strip her of all her money and she would be NOTHING!
