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."

BUNCH OF ****!!!
MJ cannot rest in peace STILL!
THE MAN IS INNOCENT!
Why is Oprah throwing MJ under the bus still,
what happened to WE SHALL OVERCOME...maybe Oprah overcame too much!
MJ was a genius at music, he was a man of peace.
He had his odd ways but he was not a molester!
If Oprah wants a scandal, then why doesn't she come out of the closet!!! Everyone knows she and Gayle are MORE than "friends",
they are and have been lovers for years!
WHY NOT DO A SHOW ON THAT why don't cha and leave MJ alone!

i guess its all Joes falut Micheal stayed hidden in the closet for being Queer,and then suddenly took out his sexual Fustrastion on young boys who needed money,Micheal loved Men,its just he was too scared to come out,so he used young boys as his tools....

Michael Jackson was straight and he was in love with Lisa Marie Presley and he married her and he married Debbie Rowe and he had tons of gorgeous girlfriends like Madonna, princess Stephanie of Monaco, Naomi Campbell, Pamela Anderson, Cindy Crawford, Brooke Shields, Tatum O'neal, Joanna Thomae, Tatiana Thumbtzen, Ola Ray, Sheryl Crowe, Beyonce, and more.
And just because someone is gay and living in the closet does not mean that person will turn into a pedophile. You are a homophobe if you think so.

JACKIE JACKSON WILL BE ON OPRAH ON NOVEMBER 4

Jacksons: Why don't you just dig up Michael, gather a bonfire of people that hurt Michael and take turns throwing darts at Michel's corpse? How is, in essence, what you have been doing since June 25 2009, is different? It is NOT!

You are dishonoring Michael's memory, you are dishonoring his children by putting them in a position where they are used as a ploy to imply their daddy is a child molester, and you are breaking the millions of worldwide fans.


DO MJ FANS NEED TO GIVE YOU A LIST OF PEOPLE THAT HURT MICHAEL? Why do you keep shaking hands with people that harmed him? Jacksons, what the (H)ELL is wrong with you people!!!!!!

Oprah is going straight to HELL where she belongs, as well as all those who call MJ a child molester.

Love how as soon as a post about the now deceased Michael Jackson gets people so riled up and they start spewing bullying lies and comments about a guy who can't defend himself. Of course this is done to rile up those that admire him as an artist, humanitarian, etc. To spend any time addressing these people is a waste of time and energy. What I will say is TMZ exists to incite people. We have no control over what Oprah does, the only control we have is to stop watching her but will we, more than likely not. I don't really care because Michael Jackson was not a child molester so why should it bother. Oprah - now she has got her self some deep seeded emotional issues with regards to this subject. For Michael Jackson - not a problem. Those that are spewing hate language - they do have problems.

Wow TMZ, you guys are FINALLY catching on!

How come you didn't notice this when just about 2 weeks ago, Oprah aired 2 molestation shows THE SAME week as the interview with Lisa Marie Presley covering MICHAEL JACKSON.

Even more, you guys completely IGNORED the Lisa Marie Presley interview. It's clear that you didn't acknowledge it because you refuse to believe that Michael Jackson was a red-blooded, heterosexual man AND because the interview showed the real side of him, which is exactly the side that you don't want to promote! Your filthy motives are apparent to everyone...

How come there were no headlines about Lisa Marie's interview? Considering it contained at least 10 bombshells, one of them being that they were still seeing each other for 4 years after the divorce & during the time he was MARRIED to Debbie Rowe..

ohwell: there are names for people like you, Obsessive-with-no-life-sitting-at-the-computer-all-day-on-tmz-bashing-on-michaeljackson.. Just wondering, does it make you feel good? Is that why you comment on mj stories? all this bashing! You should really get a life, i mean it. It's just sad, seeing ppl like you hating on someone whos done better in life (in this case, WAAAY WAY BETTER, almost no comparison). I bet you are a very lonely person. Because if you had one, a life that is, you would be focusing on you and what you do NOT on someone who hasn't met you, doesn't know who you are and doesn't even CARE what you have to say! I mean isn't it time for you to realize? AAAH it makes me so frustrated! NOBODY CARES IF YOU HATE MICHAEL JACKSON! stop wasting your time on the computer and GO OUT TO THE REAL WORLD.. or maybe you are just so unhappy with what you are that you have to say these negative things.. hmm i dont know and frankly dont give a ****!
So.. im off now.. (expecting a mean bashing response from you ohwell) But i'm not going to see it cuz IM OFF LIVING MY WONDERFUL LIFE!! :) TOODELS lova ya!!
