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."

I can't stand Oprah, but I have to give her props for this one. MJ was a great pop star, but he was a freak and touched on little boys!

Oprah has lost her professional integrity.
Looks like this family had opened up to her and TRUSTED her. They have been "used enough". Shame on Oprah.

Where do you rabid MJ fans get the idea that MJ was a loving peace maker? As if anyobody is going to buy into that:


-He wanted to bea aroubnd children because of his perversions!
-He never lead an exemplary life (see drug addictions and lavish lifestyle) like Gandhi or Nelson Mandela, yet he DARED! compare himself to them
- His charities well conducted for publicity and tax deduction purposes, he never made real contribution that could make anyone say he was a real philanthropist. Plus, he never even gave more than Oprah or did more than her in charities
-His mental sanity was extremely questionable

Michael Jackson was PROVEN innocent. Even the FBI files showed that Michael was INNOCENT. Everyone that knew Michael said he was innocent including Donald Trump, Lisa Marie Presley, Brook Shields, Liza Manelli, Elizabeth Taylor, Kenny Ortega, his body guards, his staff, members of his band, and on and on. Oprah is hateful and I cannot for the life of me figure out why Michael's mother would allow this interview. I can only assume Joseph pushed her into it. Anything to further his "I didn't abuse Michael" agenda. Come to think of it, wasn't it Oprah in the 1993 interview with Michael who called what Michael described as discipline as “beatings” and "abuse". Those were Oprah's words. Let's see how she manipulates his family with it to try to discredit Michael. Oprah will take EVERY opportunity to belittle Michael. She is sly and coy and Michael's family won't see it coming until it's too late. Michael's children are completely innocent in this and probably have no idea what kind of person Oprah is. Michael always asked his mother to refrain from interviews about him. I wish she would listen. I can see no good coming from this with someone like Oprah.

Pina hi,i don't know if you saw the bashir do***entary (the footage we were never meant to see),where katherine states that joe never hit Michael he just disciplined him.Doesn't it seem strange to you that since Michael's murder all katherine does is appear on tv,she dragged his children's names in her lawsuit against aeg,she now says the Cascio tracks are fakes and again the children's names are mentioned,she asked for a larger monthly allowance.Does this seem like a naive old woman listening to her husband?

VERY WELL SAID Cathy40. I would just add Oprah may be PERVERT that's why she goes On and On and comes back TIME and AGAIN talking about child molestation. Focussing for example on innocent Michael her pervert mind thinks that's the way to protect her perversion from being discovered. Why we can worry about this ? Because Oprah's way of doing with sexual child abuse is not only to hurt the innocent like Michael but to BANALIZE CHILD MOLESTATION ("200 men molested", that's all ? what a pleasure you had Oprah from interviewing them ?). You never have enough Oprah ?
