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."

FACT1    

I LIKE MJ'S MUSIC,BUT
MICHAEL WILL ALWAYS BE KNOWN AS THE SO CALLED CHILD MOLESTER.
MICHAEL WILL BE KNOWN AS A FREAK BECAUSE OF HIS FACE SURGERY.
MICHAEL WILL ALWAYS BE KNOWN AS A DRUG ADDICT.
MICHAEL WILL ALWAYS BE THE ONE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL THESE MEMORIES,
NOT CONRAD MURRAY.
CONRAD MURRAY ISN'T ALL RESPONSIBLE FOR MICHAELS DEATH,
MICHAEL IS.
MICHAEL IS BY FAR NOT A SAINT.
HE NEVER PAID ANY OF HIS BILLS, HE STIFFED EVERYONE.
MY 6 YEAR OLD GRANDDAUGHTER KNOWS ALL ABOUT MJ, BUT LIKES HIS MUSIC.
GET A LIFE, MICHAEL WASN'T A GOOD PERSON.

Michael Jackson's family is even MORE morally culpable for doing nothing to help Michael.

Britney Spear's family rushed to her side & took the necessary steps to save her from totally destroying her life & leaving their grandchildren without a mother. They went to court & had her declared incompetent & FORCED her to get the help she needed... they didn't allow an obviously mentally disturbed child decide for herself what she would or would not do.

So Murray was sitting in the courtroom, day after day, stone-faced, silent, presenting himself SO much suffering from unfair allegations – and afterwards he joined the TV team to talk his head off.
Unbelievable.
I'm sure Judge Pastor noticed that with interest. Taking Murray into custody also prevented him from doing more work on the do***entation. And, Mr Murray, don't forget: The degree of your penalty has not yet been decided.

Morally culpable...doesn't mean legal squat. Nice Try. Enough with the BS. The real truth of Michael Jackson which was never allowed in trial (so lucky) is now 'smearing'. Civil suites are a whole different ballgame.


Murray was found guilty of course (don't want another Casey Anthony)


The Jacksons have no problem blaming and sueing everyone they can to make a buck, that doesn't have to go through his estate.


They want the civil cases. They are not going to get lucky like they did at trial protecting Michael Jacksons once upon a time 'self-proclaimed king of pop image' That was over 25 years ago.

His 3rd molestation charge, enough proof to get arrested, charged, booked (2003 mugshot, just look at what he did to himself) and goes to trial. It's Michael Jackson, he didn't do that. Lawyer got him off.

Michael Jackson finially bellied up, just so happened on Murrays watch or would have been someone else. Jackson, 19 known different names to get his drugs. Jackson had the money and the clout to get what he wanted. Michael Jackson was the true propofol pro. No way in the world this would ever be done in a hospital setting.

His family has always known this. Now trying to play dumb, blame and get money.

Very simple, Jackson is still dead (worth more dead than alive) Murray is the 'blame' and in jail. Got to keep up with the whole old Michael Jackson image.

Michael Jacksons non-origional dance moves, never acknowledged Bob Fosse.

The delusional, ignorant Jackson family and these Executors need to shut up and move on, they have turned the Murray into a scapegoat for a FULL BLOWN DRUG ADDICT because they don't want to tarnish MIchael's image, an image that is SEVERELY tarnished already. Michael was a really sick dude and everyone but his trashy, money-grubbing family knows that!

I think it would be against the law for him to be participating in this do***entary while the trial was going on. He should of been in jail right after he caused this to happen to Michael Jackson. Instead of footloose and fancy free. Judge Pastor should get him for contempt of court anyway if this is all he can get him for. This trial was under a gag order, so how could he just go around blabbing about Michael to anyone he wanted to while the trial was in progress? I don't understand how he has gotten away with this.

Ethics? And this coming from the people who'll be auctioning off the MJ's deathbed??? There's no doubt that this do***entary is somewhat disgusting, but the Family (except the children) and Estate people should be the LAST to comment on this!!!

The Judge is going to love this. NOT! He's already shown he's going tough on Murray. This will help put the murderer away as long as possible.

Makes me wonder what other audio tapes Murray has of Michael that he's also planning to sell. quack quack quack


Exactly my thoughts. I don´t think that judge Pastor loves Murray exactly as it is, so this idiocy might help dig Murray´s grave even deeper. Fine.
I am glad the estate has reacted.
