Michael jackson Executors

NBC is 'Morally Culpable'

For Conrad Murray Documentary

11/9/2011 11:21 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1108_mj_letter_ex
TMZ has obtained a blistering letter sent to NBC and MSNBC execs from the co-executors of Michael Jackson's estate, attacking the networks' ethics for giving Conrad Murray a platform in an upcoming documentary.    
 
In the letter John Branca and John McClain grouse that Murray has no qualms about "smearing the reputation of his 'friend,'" even though he refused to testify under penalty of perjury in his trial.

In the letter, the co-executors doubt that Murray got paid only $1 for his participation in the doc.  In fact, people connected with the documentary hedged when TMZ asked about Murray's payment.

And the co-executors say, the networks are using "moral loopholes" -- claiming it was shot before Murray was convicted -- "in order to boost ratings at a struggling cable network."

The verdict is in, so can we just STOP with the MJ and Murray stories now? Thanks a million. A sick man is dead because of his addictions, and the doctor is held responsible. If it weren't Murray it would have been someone else...addicts with MJ's money get whatever they want.

Oh shut up Wacko kicking the bucket has been good for their pockets.
Without the good doc they would not have access to Wackos loot.
Throw the doc a bone for a job well done.

I am sure everyone that worked for MJ had to sign a confidentiality agreement. His death should not cancel that agreement. I hope his family sues the hell out of him.I won'*****ch this anymore than I would watch anything to do with Casey Anthoney...
