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."

Such hypocrites, that entire family and estate are greedy jackals, just who is auctioning off the bed he died in, how disgusting and grotesque is that? But its ok for the nasty family to make money off his corpse, just not anyone else! THEY ARE ALL REVOLTING, GREEDY, IMMORAL AND JUST PLAIN DISGUSTING!!!

MSNBC - The most liberal news channel on TV. Being card carrying liberals they always take the "moral high-ground" on any issue. That is unless doing so intereferes with their ratings!!!!

Give a break. It's america, and freedom of speech. Go back to sucking the estate dry much like the Jackson family.

What's the difference between this do***entary and the leaking of do***ents from a court etc.? I don't see anyone boycotting TMZ when they leak do***ents such as in the Mel Gibson case and TMZ prints them. Same crap different day.
By the way I just used TMZ as an example, I don't think they should be boycotted! ;) Maybe I should've used ROL for releasing the sealed tapes? Anyway you get my point.

Get over yourselves Estate. Seriously, yu do not have control over everything about MJ when it comes to people's opinions. And for you to get so upset and all demanding ove this and then SELL HIS DEATHBED just goes to show that Murray wasn't the leech...YOU AND HIS FAMILY ARE. I hope the ratings go through the roof for them and more people see that MJ was a DRUG ADDICT WHO HELPED CAUSED HIS DEATH. Anthing else is just delusional thinking. But then most Mj fans are delusional to begin with.

More hilarity!!!!

Who was it that aired the MJ's service to the world????

You know the one.....where MJ's "child' spoke.

Was this the EXECUTORS of MJ's estate with approval from K. Jackson. Wasn't the story she wasn't really on board for this but other family members convinced her to do this???? Who profited from this???? Weren't people taken aback that this was even happening????????????

It is so funny.....Branca's letter.....

"Reality show"....
$1 salary not to mention PAYMENT to "represenatives"....
Morally culpable...........


Boy, haven't we heard these same themes in another headlining event of the past week!!!!!!
Is Branca letting us in on the TRUTH of how these PAYMENTS are handled?????


Let the REAL (is there such a thing anymore???) games begin!!!

What does anyone expect from that liberal mouthpiece of a *****hole? They've been blowing America for 10 years now and can kiss of and die as far as I'm concerned. The sooner they're run out of business the better of America will be. Rachel Madcow and Leg trickling No Balls Chris Matthews, that moron they cut loose, Olbermann, all liberal shills and freaks to boot.

This time they are right. Media supporting violence is nothing new and finally people who have business interests hurt by that speak up. Paying a convicted felon for his story is promoting violence. May be fans just shouldn'*****ch, for real. Now, because of the screaming and boycotting the footage fans actually promote it,make people curious about it. And the sale of stuff from that house is disgusting too. Or is it a show for some people. Why would Mr. Chernoff even mention a reality show when the matter was serious. Jurors probably did not need such a reminder.
