TMZ has obtained a copy of the jury questionnaire in Dr. Conrad Murray's manslaughter trial, and the lawyers and judge want to know just how obsessed potential jurors are over high-profile cases like Casey Anthony.

Among the 113 questions ...

-- Over the past several years, have you followed any publicized cases?   (e.g., OJ Simpson, Robert Blake, Phil Spector, Casey Anthony, etc).

-- Have you accessed or posted any blogs concerning Michael Jackson or Conrad Murray?

-- Agree or disagree .... Celebrities and high-profile people feel they are entitled to act however they please.

-- Agree or disagree .... Celebrities and high-profile people in Los Angeles get away with crimes because of their status.

-- Has your life or the life of anyone close to you ever been affected by the behavior of someone who had a drug (prescription or other) or alcohol addiction?

-- Did you ever watch "This Is It?"

-- Have you ever considered yourself a fan of Michael Jackson or the Jackson family?

-- Have you ever undergone a medical procedure that required an anesthetic?

-- Have you ever been prescribed medication by a friend who is a physician?

-- Has your physician ever refused to prescribe a medication that you specifically requested?

And the questionnaire lists potential witnesses to see if prospective jurors know any of them.  The witnesses include Janet Jackson, Jermaine, Joe, La Toya, Katherine, Paris, Prince, Blanket, Randy, Marlon, Tito and Rebbie.

Dr. Conrad Murray Jury Selection Questionnaire Released: Radar Made It Onto The List!Dr. Conrad Murray Jury Selection Questionnaire Released: Radar Made It Onto The List!

The jury selection questionnaire that is being used for the upcoming Dr. Conrad Murray involuntary manslaughter trial was released on Friday — and RadarOnline.com made it onto the list!

Question 32 asks: “What internet sites or blogs, if any, do you visit?” And listed between PerezHilton and the SmokingGun is RadarOnline.com!

Read The Questionnaire On RadarOnline.com

The questionnaire goes in-depth, quizzing potential jurors about their education level, employment history, their hobbies and recreational interests, news consumption habits, lifestyle and health issues, medication consumption, criminal background and past interactions with law enforcement and the court system.

In addition, potential jurors are quizzed about their “ attitudes about celebrities and people in the news” and their “case knowledge and exposure.”

More than half of the first panel of prospective jurors were dismissed on Thursday because of hardship claims. It’s not known yet how many will be dismissed because of their pre-conceived ideas about Michael Jackson’s death and of Dr. Murray.

Not surprisingly, all potential jurors have some knowledge of the case — when the judge asked on Thursday if anyone was unaware of it, not a single hand was raised.

"We didn't expect you'd been living under a rock for the past several years, or that you made a pit stop from Mars," Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor said in response.

Dr. Murray is accused of administering a lethal dose of the anesthetic, Propofol, to Jackson in the bedroom of the singer’s mansion in June 2009. Murray denies all charges though, and his legal team contend that Jackson swallowed an overdose of Propofol when Murray was out of the room

Judge Pastor has warned potential jurors that if selected for the trial they must wait until 90 days after the case is over to negotiate any deals to be paid for information.

"This is not a case about whether Dr. Murray is guilty or innocent," Judge Pastor said. "It's about whether the people can meet the burden of proving him guilty beyond a reasonable doubt."

Prosecutors and defense attorneys will have several days to read through completed questionnaires. Direct questioning of potential jurors begins on Sept. 23.

Murray faces up to four years in prison and the loss of his medical license if convicted.

They've been waiting to fry this Murray for so long, we've had time to see him on TMZ acting normal. I hope they don't put the guy away. He seems innocent to me. Michael Jackson was so full of chemicals it was probably similar to an Amy Winehouse situation. The children's Daddy was not taken away from them. He took himself away from them.

Here's a 114th question... Does it bother you that a drug addict pedophile continues to ruin lives from beyond the grave?

You know, I really do not care about the family taking the stand. But, it concerns me that MJ3 will be taking the stand. What a horrible thing for the kids to have to go through! I sure hope that they will receive some psychological consoling when it is over with - they will probably need it! Considering what a frightening, traumatic thing the trial is - plus all that they will hear and have to deal with. Michael would not want his children put through anything such as this! My prayers are with Michael's children!

Out of context compilation of questions.

Take this one

-- Has your physician ever refused to prescribe a medication that you specifically requested?

How a physician can refuse if you have never asked him/her?
The logic is to have a question "have you asked ... " and than the other one.
