MJ Fan Group Rips CNN Over 'Knucklehead' Insult

The official Michael Jackson fan group that lashed out against the timing of Oprah's molestation special is now going after CNN ... after a guest analyst referred to them as "knuckleheads."

A rep for the Official MJ Fans of Southern California tells us they're pissed that "Showbiz Tonight" guest analyst Lauren Lake labeled them the "Official Knuckleheads of California" ... after they spoke out against O's decision to run her interview with MJ's kids one episode after her special on child molestation.

OMJFSC is "outraged" that "Showbiz" would allow Lake to comment on something "she clearly knows nothing about."

The group argues that Oprah already showed her colors back in 2005 ... when she aired a special on pedophilia during Michael Jackson's molestation trial ... adding Lake simply has her "head in the sand" on the issue.

Just another famewhore "organization" like PETA, NAACP, NRA, etc.

If historians don't call this the "Decade of the Whore", then they are lying their asses off!

The "expert" panel on that show didn't look into any of the history. And they act as if it's beyond Oprah's control to position her shows how she wants. IT'S FREAKING OPRAH.

Lake has her head up her azz. If she thinks Oprah airing those two shows was a mere coincidence, she's crazy. It was so obviously intentional! Retract your comment, Lauren Lake or we shall press forward here. Go ahead, make our day.

Lauren Lake is an attorney licensed to practice in NY, NJ and MI. She's practicing entertainment and criminal law and ought to KNOW better than to make a reckless and disparaging comment about MJ's fan club. She's been associated with Rikki Lake and Dr. Phil. This woman knows better. I wonder why she would make such a stupid remark...

Perhaps she's looking to associate herself directly with Oprah Winfrey.

Michael Jackson Fans are The Children, Oprah and the Media are The Beast. They Do Not comprehend, so Michael Jackson fans teach each other and stand Together. One Love People. Not Money Money People.

@Poster 12 tgrfan:

I can see you are a Tiger Woods fan. That sort of qualifies you to me. If someone is accused of being thief and later acquitted, do you call him a thief for life? You don't believe in the justice system, that's obvious. I do. The fact remains, after a jury of his peers looked at all the evidence carefully, they deemed him innocent. That's the system here in the USA - the rest is just your opinion and emotion driven.

Get ur facts straight ppl...

OPRAH DID NOT GO TO KJ. O turned DOWN KJ, then KJ sweetened the pot USING PPB to get O to do it.

KJ SOLD THOSE KIDS OUT TO OPRAH.

This idiot lawyer on CNN is hooked up with Dr. Phony... er, Phil... and Oprah OWNS, HIM. It's all a fierce media storm between ALL of them using each other, and making HUGE money on MJ fans from every which way... including the click hits ON HERE to read and post feeding the frenzy.

O is retiring the O show but at the same time launching the Oprah Winfrey Network... "OWN Channel".

Doing a damn good job on keeping MJ out there in the public underneath it all.

GET IT?

You have no clue who went to whom to secure this interview. Nobody can say for sure. Oprah and her staff as well as KJ knows that informaton, not you or me, for that matter.

Look, I can't stand Oprah, but yeah... THIS deal isn't on her this time. It's on KJ, whos just as bad. Correction: even worse imo.


Now what O does to spin it WILL be on her... have to wait and see. lol... you all will have to guess who's spinning what and whom at this point. I boycotted O ages ago, and not going to change that now.


I'll wait the years it takes to invest in MJ tracks again WHEN THEIR RIGHTFUL OWNERS: PPB, puts them out, ty. Until then, this fan is NOT putting out one thin dime to ANY of the pirhanas in this nasty game of all of these players, using and abusing them, him, or anyone else, for MJ's money. Boycotted Oprah many years ago, and Dr. Phony the second I saw he was on through Harpo Productions = Oprah.

CNN couldn't care less what "fans of MJ" think for feel about a damn thing LOL, stand on the 1st amendment and move right on along. JUST. LIKE. OPRAH. AND. KJ. and the rest of them.

Deal.
