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."

Oprah's mind is twisted-she was molested when she was young; she was jealous of MJ because she was not as big as MJ; she's getting nastier and bitcher. Cathrine and Joe Jackson are money hunger and so stupid to let these kid exploited by this bitch.

Oprah seems to be using the Jacksons and Michael's children. Inappropriate show timing, and probably an inappropriate choice of interviewer.

So Oprah has been molested herself.

That is bad and I'm very sorry for her.

But she can't drag and twich every rumor there is in desperate search for her own justice.

That's brutal and unfair behaviour.

That's exactly how victims become perpetrators.

Egocentricity in order to feel better ... until the next show.

Jordan Chandler needs to be the surprise guest on Oprah that Friday and announce that MJ is innocent. Then, all will be good.

Jordan Chandler should come out and say on Oprah that Michael Jackson never molested him and that his father Evan Chandler was the real child abuser who ruined his life.

I guess she has to do something to get those ratings, just shows that even O has to go tabloid when the show has gotten tired, she should have been retired it 2 years ago… and stop with the gifts already the product placement has gotten a bit much.

I agree with the STD's, Michael changed himself from black to white, "bought" white children, befriended only boys, and was a drug addict in the worst of ways. Where is the God LIke in that?

"Coincidental" my foot! The explanation is more offensive than the act! Do you take public to be boo-boo the fools?

I know FOR A FACT that Jacksons reached out to Oprah to request that she does NOT air the children's portion of the interview.

She used and abused Michael for ratings. She had the audacity to host Janet. Now his mother and his children....EXCLUSIVELY and this is the ingratitude she shows? I am done with Oprah! I don't care if she is the MOST influential person on the UNIVERSE, she has no heart, no integrity, no loyalty, no logic!

We respectfully request.....better yet, DEMAND that little children who lost their father are NOT used in this ploy of ratings! Leave them alone! We respectfully demand a change in the line-up!

OPRAH, EITHER RESPECT THE MAN OR STOP USING HIM FOR RATINGS! Enough is enough!
