Conrad Murray to Joe Jackson: You're Outta Here!

Dr. Conrad Murray's lawyer has filed a motion to dismiss Joe Jackson's wrongful death lawsuit against him ... TMZ has learned.

0119_conrad_joe_EX_TMZ_01

Murray's lawyer, Charles Peckham, claims Joe's attorney missed the statute of limitations and therefore the case -- centering on the death of Michael Jackson -- should be thrown out.

Peckham claims Joe's lawyer, Brian Oxman, filed the lawsuit 158 days after the 1-year deadline.

Does Web Traffic Correlate to Revenue?

The success of a website is dependent on traffic to the website. A content based website such as TMZ often gets a lot of traffic (12 million visitors per month, each visitor generating multiple page views) due to incoming links and higher visibility to search engines. It relies mainly on ad publishing for its revenue stream. With advertising rates so low these days, only a very high volume website (more than 1 million page views per month) can make substantial money.

Traffic can be related to ad publishing revenue for content-based websites because higher page views generate more ad revenue.

How Revenue Depends on Traffic

Let's consider the income potential for a content based website such as TMZ. A web page on average can show two banners (one on top and one skybanner on the side). The average CPM (cost per thousand) rates are around $0.50. This translates to a CPC (cost per click) rate of $0.10 per click with a 0.5% CTR (click through rate).

The website can also show one pop under ad per visitor at $3.00 CPM. The revenue that can be generated is below (assuming an average 5 page views per visitor).


Monthly Page Views 2 Banners @ $0.50 CPM Pop Under @ $3.00 CPM

25,000 $ 25/month $ 15/month
100,000 $ 100/month $ 60/month
1,000,000 $ 1,000/month $ 600/month
30,000,000 $ 30,000/month $ 18,000/month

For high traffic websites and for niche markets, the owner can negotiate a higher CPM rate. On top of that, these websites can promote one line ads directly from the advertiser for a fixed amount per month. Usually that rate is around $500 per month per text ad for approximately 30 million page impressions per month or 0.0167 CPM.

In the case of TMZ, Harvey Levin and his band of punks know that anything with Michael's name in the headline will generate clicks. The story doesn't even have to be true! Therefore, outrageous claims, salacious headlines, sick and twisted stories--doesn't matter--they all generate clicks for TMZ and put money in Harvey Levin's pocket.

The next time you're tempted to click on TMZ and put money in Harvey Levin's pocket, please remind yourself that this is what you're supporting. Here's the latest TMZ smear of Michael Jackson's personal legacy.

He shouldn't have been able to file a suit anyway. According to reports, Michael hated Joe Jackson. So why should he be able to profit from his death?

TMZ this is an old story, why are you rehashing this crap? see..

http://www.tmz.com/2010/10/13/conrad-murray-joe-jackson-michael-jackson-dead/

The judge in the wrongful death lawsuit Joe Jackson filed against Dr. Conrad Murray lashed out at both sides ... saying they both screwed up.

Judge John Walter denied Dr. Murray's motion to dismiss the case, concluding Murray's lawyer, Charles Peckham, violated court rules by not trying to resolve the issues with Joe's attorney before filing his motion.

But the judge also said Joe's lawyer, Brian Oxman, was slow on the uptake in filing his opposition papers ... missing the deadline.

But the judge's ruling isn't permanent. Murray's lawyer is allowed to refile. We're told Peckham will call Oxman -- who almost certainly will tell Peckham to go screw himself -- and then Peckham can refile his motion to get the case thrown out.

Once again I must thank the good doctor for preventing this army of lice from their almost never ending feeding at Michael's golden trough.
Do these people really believe that that self hating golden pig known as Michael Jackson purchased three three little white children to feed from a trickle because his lightly coloring relatives are using up the money to run from their darkness! amongst other things.
It isn't easy needing to be well thought of by white people.
The hair, the skin, the things that white people do, the vehicles they drive,the houses and communities they live in.
Oh why oh why must one be cursed with such hair ! such features! and the skin! How could God be so cruel to one's vanity! Others would be accepting of themselves because they might know that race is nothing more than a camoflauge but not for those whom are vain like us!
Hello, My name is Joe Jackson, Who?. Hi ,I'am Randy Jackson, What?. Good morning I'am Toyota Jackson eh,Yeah? Hey I'am Jerkmaine Jackson, And? um,er,ah,am.... MICHAEL JACKSON'S (Insert relation here:___________) Oh! MICHAEL JACKSON'S (Insert relation here:___________) Oh so you're related to MICHAEL JACKSON? Yes we are, Okay. I'am sorry about what happened with MICHAEL JACKSON. How does it feel being the relative of MICHAEL JACKSON. We loved MICHAEL JACKSON.Everyone knows MICHAEL JACKSON.
Sorry Jerandy, Jeroe, Toyota,Jerkmaine and all the other Jerackson jer*******s except for Janet.
Feeding time is up! Time to get out there and work off all that fat from over the years. Just remember to include MICHAEL JACKSON'S :__________) in whatever you come up with because that will be the only selling point.
As for you Jeroe, you're wrong ,Murray is not out of here, it's your famous boy who is. BWAHAAAAAAHAAAA.

These comments by Unknown are definitely worth reposting.

Of course everyone has always been aware of how TMZ and such websites generate their revenue. No news there. It's the way that business works. Nothing illegal or unethical about it.
So of course the recap was unnecessary.
EXCEPT to the Michael Jackson fan base.

These are their tactics.
Reminiscent of:

FASCISM

fas·cism

fas·cism [fá shìzzəm]
or Fas·cism [fá shìzzəm]
n
dictatorial movement: any movement, ideology, or attitude that favors dictatorial government, centralized control of private enterprise, repression of all opposition, and extreme nationalism

-fas·cist [fáshist], , n adj
-fas·cis·tic [fə shístik], , adj

TOTALITARIASM

to·tal·i·tar·i·an

to·tal·i·tar·i·an [tō tàllə térree ən]
adj
centralized and dictatorial: relating to or operating a centralized government system in which a single party without opposition rules over political, economic, social, and cultural life


[Early 20th century. < totality after authoritarian ]


These are the Michael Jacksons fan base tactics of bringing TMZ to heel/account and induce them to adhere to strictly PRO-Michael Jackson and ANTI-Conrad Murray guidelines.

Personally, I think this BOYCOTT of TMZ by Michael Jackson rabid cultists is a great idea.

TMZ/Harvey will not stop posting unbiased Michael Jackson, OR Conrad Murray topics just to appease the strong arm (SS/Gestapo) tactics of Michael Jackson fans, and we the truthseekers "haters" can finally declare TMZ Michael Jackson topic boards open game/open range for all "haters"(truthseekers).

TMZ is not a Michael Jackson fanclub website, never has been never will be.
TMZ is a celebrity news and gossip website....
and a damn unbiased and informative one at that.

Thank you Unknown for your input (collective).
It totally lays the Michael Jackson fans basic psyche and agenda.

Thank you TMZ/Harvey Levine!

And God Bless Conrad Murray.
