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."

Opral could not go to MJ`s funeral,because he was not a friend,now she could talk to his children and console them.Ithink is about time we all see Opral for who she really is ....... A FRAUD.

Oprah - the ultimate vulture gets the ultimate prey. The kids are too young yet to realize they have been sold down the river to someone who trashed and held their father up for public ridicule. Someday they will be old enough to understand the horror he suffered and will realize they were sold out for money -- just like their father.

btw - NOTHING with Oprah is coincidental! How dumb does she think we are?!

I love people who love Michael. They are more sensitif, more intuitif than those who don't. They recognize the power of love. They are humane. They now that media - Oprah - manipulate and don't trust them. People you are so many in the world loving Michael that you are a real power. As said Michael in "Another part of me" :
A Rather Nation
Fulfill The Truth
The Final Message
We're Bring To You
There Is No Danger
Fulfill The Truth

We're Mean Is You

We're Sendin' Out
A Major Love

Ugh, that is so stupid...Oprah is starting to get on my nerves, I say don't air the Jacksons' episode at all. I love Michael Jackson's music and I don't believe that he was guilty of anything so if any emotion would arrive it would be serious disdain.

Why on earth should we care what oprah thinks about MJ???
America please wake up and think for yourself not care about
media and their opinion .
What happened to that great country?
Talkshow's and fake journalist's have taken over American's brain and it's maintenance???
The world knows that MJ was not what America and it's media
wanted us to blieve he was .
We do not have talkshow's and their stupid host here try to buy us and our brain with a car donation to her audiance in her show and broadcast it worldwide. You people made her rich and she gives you gift instead of paying tax and promote herself on top of it .In my opinion she cand scheduale whatever aand it has got nothing to do with MJ but has got something to do with herself . It is not MJ problem, it is her problem . She has been molested and she is frustrated and needs help .
Please People wake up .

Katherine & Joe Jackson need to be more careful when it comes to Michael's children. Uncle Randy Jackson may have been right about Oprah's sudden interest in everything MJ as being bad for his kids. The phony "coincidence excuses" that Oprah Winfrey uses are pathetic. Oprah, a media mogul who is responsible for what, and when, something is put on her show, proves one thing: YOU CAN HAVE BILLION OF DOLLARS AND STILL BE IGNORANT & LOW CLASS.

The sad thing is, every MJ fan saw this coming, that O would not stray from her past examples in perpetuating the lies that lamestream media persists in both fabricating, and giving momentum to throughout most of Michael Jacksons life.
Comments like those written by "STD" ( #5) clearly demonstrate how unbelievably gullible some people are, thinking that the tabloid headlines at the checkout stand inform them of the truth. It's extremely easy to find, in actual fact; and nothing like the media would portray.
Oprah, I hope the millions you make by feeding off MJ's legacy, and especially his vulnerable children, burn your hands; I know they will weigh heavily in the scale upon which your deeds in this life will be weighed.

Suddenly k becomes active!! She is on o all the time,she drags the children's names on her lawsuit against aeg,she decides that the Cascio tracks shouldn't be released,she allows o to have Michael's children on her show when she knew that Michael would never do that.He never wanted his children to appear on tv and be exposed to the media.Like poor Michael sang "Anything for money" but the most sad part is that he adored this woman but after his murder she betrayed him.Shame on her!!!

OUT OF JUST PLAIN COMMON SENSE,,,AND RESPECT FOR THE JACKSON FAMILY,,, OPRAH SHOULD NOT AIRE THESE SHOWS BACK TO BACK ,, ESPECIALLY AFTER WHAT HAPPENED LAST TIME.....WHERE IS HER COMMON SENSE ????? AND SHE ONLY HAD JACKIE JACKSON ON THE SHOW BECAUSE SHE NEW PEOPLE WOULD BE PISSED OFF AT WHAT SHE WAS DOING...THAT WAS HER WAY OF SOFTENING THE BLOW...WHY DOES'NT SHE HAVE APHRODITE JONES OR TOM MESSEREAU ON HER SHOW ??? AND WHY DOES'NT SHE SHOW THAT SHE BELIEVES IN OUR JUSTICE SYSTEM,,, THE ONE THAT CORRECTLY FOUND MICHAEL NOT GUILTY ??? I WAS SEVERELY MOLESTED AS A CHILD TOO BUT I DONT BLAME MICHAEL FOR IT..AND I'VE RAISED MY FAMILY AND I'M OVER 60 YEARS OLD BUT I DONT UNDERSTAND OPRAHS BEHAVIOR... AND MICHAEL WAS SO NICE TO HER TOO !!!! HER REAL FAME CAME AFTER HER WORLD INTERVIEW WITH HIM..I GUESS SHE'S TOO RICH AND POWERFUL TO CARE WHAT PEOPLE THINK... THATS WHAT MONEY AND POWER DOES TO MOST PEOPLE,, THEY JUST DON'T GIVE A DAMN !! AND THATS SAD... I WILL PRAY FOR OPRAH,, GODWILLING SHE WILL RETHINK HER ACTIONS...

People believed that M. J. , molested those kids because the media said so. One of his unfortunate public seeking sisters said the same thing. It is amazing how when the young man said his father forced him to LIE, I didn't hear that on the news the way we heard that M. J. , was guilty.

There aren't enough shows that talk about abuse that happens in the family to children. Oprah, I like and always have. I thought she and M. J. , at one time had the same problem, being ashamed of being Black, she has come a long way. Child abuse is nothing that you ever get over, that is a rape, and unless it has happened to you, you can't or shouldn't say aren't you over it yet.

This country buries it self in the sand. How many know that you can't change anything in two years, that it took 8 years to mess up. The system still tries to protect child molestors, like in a rape case, "What did you do to attract your rapist".
If a young girl tries to sit on a man's lap, he still has the duty to say "little girl go away". I heard a man say once , "she kept touching me".

Tyler Perry's revelation about his abuse was a tear jerker. Sometimes fathers know that their son is different, and they abhor them. They should pay attention to who they leave their
kids with and listen when the kids tell you , uncle Bob felt me up and touch me. We have so many sick people who watch porno
and say they want something pure. If we kept our minds on what is going on in this country, like our schools closing, jobs leaving and the true meaning about Medicare, but no , we pay more attention to things that don't matter. M. J. , is gone and his children will be RICH, Wealthy people so leave them along. Help our Congress be strong, and the senate, your kids future depends on it.

Not a coincidence because her show is ONLY about MEN who have been molested! What about the girls! She is 100% adding fuel to the allegations of the past! MJ was not molesting boys! She is trying to keep it in our minds as what a typical molester acts like and looks like, a profile on the creeps! MJ was an exception to the rule! He did not build Neverland to attract boys to him! He built it to reclaim his childhood, and to HELP the less fortunate...including girls and babies too! Oprah needs to give her head a shake! She would be nothing with out her money!!
