The Conrad Murray trial is a bore. He was obviously a horrendous Doctor and doing it for the money and to be close to Jacko.

The more interesting question is "Was Michael Jackson Murdered for money?" He was worth $50M alive and $500M dead. He was incapable of performing and was a drain on his own resources. Who benefits?

Murray specifically said he treated MJ 60+ times with Propofol for insomnia. He first stammered and the cop offered "more than 10 times," and Murray said yes. Then Murray expanded and said 60 times over two months, 30 days each month. Murray expanded in such a way that it's impossible to conclude he was conscious of guilt in administering the drug each day.

Of course, everyday couldn't be fully accurate because Murray had Sundays off, which meant a maximum of 24 days in a 28 day month. Someone else must have assisted MJ each Sunday night, because MJ likely could not go 6 days on and 1 day off.

The problem occurred not when the patient was happily receiving the drug. The problem happened when doctor and patient got into a tug of war over the syringe. The experts hammered Murray for inexperience with Propofol, but it was inexperience with substance abuse victims that created the dangerous situation. Maybe the prosecutors don't want to go there because it is a murky area where MJ and CM could share blame, and that's a losing scenario for them.

The defense can dig out from the damage. Prosecutors needed Murray crucified, dead, and buried, and they didn't quite get there. The expert they have on now is ruining everything that's gone before with his odd manner and self-promoting conduct. All the prosecution experts looked like hired guns who want to be on television.

HARVEY OR JASON,

HOW CAN DR. MURRAY'S DEFENSE SUDDENLY DROP THE 'MICHAEL DID IT TO HIMSELF' EXPLANATION IN THE MIDDLE OF THE TRIAL. WON'T THAT PISS THE JURORS OFF TO SEE THAT THE DEFENSE TEAM IS MAKING UP THEORIES AS THEY GO?
WHAT IS YOUR EXPERIENCE IN COURT WITH THIS DEFENSE TEAM 'ABOUT FACE'?

Been reading Kenneth Angers Hollywood Babylon and I think as soon as this Conrad Murray scandal is over or near over Lindsay Lohan will be the new Virginia Rappe and the latest crazy scandal that sweeps the nation and world, she is one of those types you know. As the Lindsay Lohan scandal dominates people attention the Democrats will go to war with Iran because everybody will be wondering who killed Lindsay Lohan, or something like that. :)

With Whitney's "overreacting behavior" no matter what she had done they would have kicked her off, and she knew too. Her diva days kinda died down sadly, and she went through many changes. Today she can't compete with the woman out there today singing, and and they haven't let drugs take over their bodies and their lives. But I think diva or not the crew were serious on what they said! Thats how it should be. Also from the sounds of it because she couldn't have it her way she had to let one of the crew members buckle her up rather then doing it herself. Hmmm!

If it was ANYBODY other than Whitney, they would've been thrown off of the plane. Only drawback to the argument is that nobody BUT Whitney would 'spazz' out about not wanting to wear a seatbelt. LOL They should've just left her alone and headed directly for turbulence.

Hilary Swank attending the birthday party for the president of Chechnya is a prime example of the liberal Hollywood elite!

Does Harvey ever stop for air???? It's getting worse as time goes on too, he just goes on these long tirades without listening to what his co-host is saying at all. I should time how long Harvey can talk at a time. And watch when his guests call in, he barely listens, he just waits until he can tell them HIS opinion again.

I'm not buying the story from the Hacker guy.
If all you want is the thrill of seeing what celebrities do behind the scenes, I could almost buy that. He went so much farther by trying to sell/spread the delicate photos and info. That makes him much more dangerous, sinister and sociopathic

Regarding Murray and MJ

Wouldn't they have found the propofol in MJ's system anyways?

Granted by the time the toxicology results came back, Dr Murray would have had plenty of time to hide his drugs, etc

Murray seems arrogant like most surgeons. Even when they make mistakes, they act like they are a God
