MJ Estate Slams MSNBC

'Disgusted' by Decision

to Air Murray Documentary

11/9/2011 9:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1109-mj-conrad-murray-tmz-BN
The Michael Jackson Estate is lashing out at MSNBC -- saying it's "disgusted" with the network for planning to air the Conrad Murray documentary this weekend.

The Estate issued a statement ... saying, "Like so many of Michael’s fans, the Estate is also disgusted by MSNBC’s irresponsible and inexplicable decision to air a Conrad Murray 'documentary.'"

The statement continued, "The Co-Executors, John Branca and John McClain, are sending a letter to the top executives at Comcast, NBC Universal and MSNBC to express their disdain for their actions."

The MJ fans are predictably up in arms as well -- in fact, the group, "Justice 4 MJ" is trying to organize a global boycott of the documentary, "Michael Jackson and The Doctor: A Fatal Friendship" ... saying, "The only documentary we want to see is the one of Murray enjoying prison life."

Part of my comments got erased. I was going to say that the Estate Lawyers not only have to issue a letter about the program by Murray, they are going to have to issue a letter about the auction. There is no rest for legal advisers when it comes to people who want to make a dollar off of Michael Jackson, and who do not have that right.

I for one cannot wait to see what information was not allowed at the trial about the shape MJ was in (bad) and how much of a spoiled, "I get what I want when I want it" addict he really was. Great father, this. MJ killed himself.

This is a stupid and ridiculous argument. Everyone has a right have their say and he is no different. They just don't want everyone remembering that MJ was a DRUG ADDICT and bought many doctors so that he could have as much access to the drugs he wanted. I don't hate Dr. Murray, I do think he was negligent, but I think Arnie Kline is a MUCH WORSE doctor that Murray ever was. MJ's family is disgusting and only want money and the fame that his name brings. Hopefuly now that this mess is over ALL of them will fade from our sights. The only ones who are a good people in that family are Janet and Reba. The rest of them can all go to H_E_L_L.

I believe Murray's lawyers made this deal with Murray and NBC to pay for their fees defending MURRAY.

Michael Jackson: Can You Handle The Truth?    

Erecting an amusement park in his backyard. Textbook pedophile. Everyone around MJ knew how he loved his "boys." He bought his boys new clothes, toys, took them on expensive trips. Anything for his boys. Ask anyone who was close to Michael and they tell you that Michael always had boys over, and showered them with expensive gifts. He went everywhere with his boys. He loved his boys, he even slept with them in the same bed. Took showers with them. Touched them. Kissed them. He even had sex with them. MJ loved his boys. He would go to great lengths to wine and dine the boys's parents to make sure they would look the other way. He rewarded the boys that stayed quiet. And punished the ones that didn't. This sick perverted sh*t bag molested scores of boys, he was a real inspiration for all the NAMBLA pedophiles all over the world. This man was their God. Any self respecting human being can see this sick man for who he was. He was sick, mentally and physically. The more boys he molested the harder it became for MJ and his enabelers to hide the evidence of his sickness. Just call Brian Oxman, he will go on TV and make things alright with his lies. Call up Howard Weitzman, he can stop it all with his threats. Hey, this isn't just any child molester, this one has lots of money. Lots and lots of money to pay off people and pay people to do his will.

It was breathtakingly stupid of Michael Jackson to sign for 50 shows knowing that he had a chronic sleeping problem. The rogue treatment with Propofol, “the magic bullet” was seemingly necessary; Michael wouldn’t have been able to do 1 show without sleep, how could he have managed 50? Dr. Murray or not, Michael was doomed! He didn’t have the emotional intelligence to put everything aside and take time to heal, emotionally, physically and mentally. The quick answer that will solve Michael’s dilemma in his mind’s eye was propofol and Co.
Although this doctor could not have prevented this boat to sink he has precipitated it by digging a bigger hole in the ship’s hull. Dr. Murray chose to be part of Michael Jackson’s vagaries for a big chunk of change under the guise of his medical license. The universe works in mysterious ways, isn’t it? Everything that could go wrong, went wrong, this is Murphy’s Law in action. Dr. Conrad Murray is a truly disastrous doctor. This is gross negligence, greed, and it hits the level of criminality. Both men are self-made, and both men are guilty, one is dead, the other will probably be confined to a jail cell where he will be spinning on his butt trying to understand what went wrong. There is no room for softness, I can’t wait for the verdict!

Dr. Murray is not the only greedy man in the MJ saga. This is the crooked timber of humanity. In the crux of this drama I would like to jump from that into another shameful exploitation of MJ. A line of perfumes dedicated to Michael is about to be launched by Michael’s own father and a professional scam-artist who is much spookier than Dr. Murray, Julian Franck Rouas. This story will make your eyes curl up in the back of your head when you’ll read about the psychologically malevolent Julian Rouas and the Jackson Tribute Fragrances rogue operation. With no functioning conscience, they have even used Michael’s kids to promote the stinking perfumes... http://jacksontributefragrances.blogspot.com

Leave the Doc alone -- he did us all a huge favor... he got rid of a True Pedophile. Now the estate wants to sell the Pedophile bed. How disgusting is that. Rotten lowlife Jackson family....

Sounds like somebody(estate,Sony)might be protesting too much!
Maybe they're scared more information against them will be revealed. They are just as guilty as Murray,probably more.
