La Toya Jackson made a valiant effort to stop MSNBC from running the Conrad Murray documentary Friday night, but in the end business is business and the network will air the show.

La Toya tells TMZ ... MSNBC Prez Phil Griffin responded to La Toya's plea directly, but she says, "due to their first amendment rights, I am unable to prevent its airing."

La Toya wants viewers to put anything Murray says in perspective, saying, "What I would encourage the public to take away from the situation is that Michael is an irreplaceable artist and human, whose talent and love for the world will forever go unmatched."
