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."

I'VE SEEN THE SELF-SERVING PROMOS...
ACTUALLY I FELT SORRY FOR THE GUY DURING THE TRIAL, EVEN THOUGH I KNEW THE CIR****TANCES FROM ALL THE EVIDENCE--NOT FROM MURRAY'S "COMMENTS" TO THE POLICE...


MY QUESTION:
WHY DIDN'T THEY ASK HARD-HITTING QUESTIONS AND DEMAND DIRECT ANSWERS...I TRULY HOPE THAT THE PROBATION DEPT AND THE JUDGE SEE THESE INTERVIEWS...AND THEN PUNISH MR. CONRAD MURRAY FOR HIS REFUSAL TO ACCEPT RESPONSILILITY FOR HIS CRIMES...


BY THE WAY, KUDOS TO THE TWO LAPD OFFICERS WHO WIRED THEMSELVES BEFORE THE MURRAY INTERVIEW...THAT WAS BRILLIANT!!!

Murray is a sociopath who has no conscience. It has always been about the money for him.

Remember how he said he "loved" Michael and that he was his friend? Friends don't do friends like this.

Could someone please give Conrat a psych evaluation? Good grief he is such a chronic liar and con artist.

(JUSTICE HAS NOT BEEN SERVED, IN THIS SO-CALLED INVOLUNTARY MANSLAUGHTER TRIAL!!) THIS TRIAL HAS MADE A "MOCKERY" OUT OF (THE CALIFORNIA JUSTICE SYSTEM!!!! )


According to the ( California Penal Code Section 190.2 )


The penalty for a defendant (Conrat Murray) , who is founded quilty of "MURDER IN THE FIRST DEGREE" is death or imprisonment in the State Prison for life without the possibility of parole, if one or more of the following special cir***tances has been found under (Section 190.4 of the California Penal Code) to be true.


(1) "INTENTIONALLY" and Carrying out the Murder of (Michael Jackson) for FINANCIAL GAIN"! ($150,000 per month x 12 = to $1,800,000 million per year salary from AEG ...),this proves that "Conrat Murray" really should've been charged by the DA's Office with (Murder in the First Degree)!! He should've not been undercharged with "Involuntary Manslaughter"!! (IMO)


http://law.onecle.com/california/penal/190.2.html


NOW!! Is the time for "EVERYONE" who believe in "JUSTICE for MICHAEL JACKSON and the World" I'm asking that you,Please! contact: California Governor "Jerry Brown" and the District Attorney "Steve Cooley" requesting an answer from them on, Why the DA's office Undercharged "Conrad Murray" (2 YEARS AGO BEFORE HIS MURDER TRIAL STARTED) with "Involuntary Manslaughter" and not "Murder in the First Degree", for the Murder of "The Great Michael Joseph Jackson"?

(THE CHARGE DON'T FIT THE CRIME of PREMEDITATED MURDER!!)


I'm not buying into this (ACCIDENTAL OVERDOSE ARGUMENT) BS that the "PROSECUTION" is claiming was the procedures that Conrat Murray used to murder "Michael Jackson"!!!

Michael Jackson Estate Blasts MSNBC Over Dr. Murray Do***entary: Do Not Air It!Michael Jackson Estate Blasts MSNBC Over Dr. Murray Do***entary: Do Not Air It!

Michael Jackson's Estate has attacked MSNBC over their decision to air a do***entary with Dr. Conrad Murray, and RadarOnline.com has obtained their blistering letter.

Murray was found guilty on Monday of the involuntary manslaughter of Jackson, his former patient.

DO***ENT: Michael Jackson Estate Fire Off Blistering Letter Over Conrad Murray Do***entary

John Branca and John McClain, co-executors of Michael's estate, state in their letter: "No sooner was Conrad Murray ordered led away in handcuffs after his conviction on manslaughter charges in the death of Michael Jackson than we discovered your MSNBC network inexplicably will showcase him in primetime Friday night as if he is worthy of celebrity."

The letter goes on to state: "Dr. Murray's victim, Michael Jackson was a loving father, an incredible talent and someone who had much left to give the world. Dr. Murray is a convicted felon who a judge felt compelled to have placed in handcuffs and jailed immediately after the jury delivered its verdict. He is not someone NBC Universal should be giving a platform on a prime-time pedestal. We demand that you exercise proper judgement and refrain from airing this program."

Michael Jackson and the Doctor: A Fatal Friendship will air on MSNBC on Friday night.

I would never watch an interview of a person who refused to take the stand.
Murray will spin and lie and lie, just as he did to detectives. My a@@ he only gave him 25 mg and didn't start a drip as usual.
