Conrad Murray

'My Damn Attorney

Is Not Prepared!'

11/12/2011 5:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Conrad Murray
might have seen his eventual conviction for manslaughter coming -- because he ripped his co-counsel Michael Flanagan for screwing up a key cross-examination ... and was so angry he told his own mother to shut up!

It all went down during the trial while Murray was discussing the moment prosecution expert Dr. Alan Steinberg corrected Flanagan -- in open court (below) -- about whether Conrad put Michael Jackson on "a drip."

Murray goes off ... "I take offense when my damn attorney is not prepared for that man." The rant was taped for the documentary "Michael Jackson and the Doctor: A Fatal Friendship" which aired last night on MSNBC.

Murray added, "Flanagan gotta wake up. He needs a lot of coffee and some pit bull, or Red Bull after lunch" -- and that was just his warmup. Check out the rest of the clip ... because Conrad's anger builds and builds until he tells "Mommy" to zip it.

Has anyone read this article,if you have i am sorry for reposting.

All payments to murray's lawyers came directly from the doctor,not the filmmakers E.Chernoff said.
I told him early and i told him often that the only way to defend himself was to have money.He had to fund his case or he would never be able to defend himself Chernoff said.

murray was in debt 800.000$ on the day Michael died and his financial cir****tances worsened in the months that followed as intense media coverage hurt his ability to earn money as a cardiologist.But after signing a deal with a British producer in 2009 he was able to assemble a defense team that included 4 attorneys,a jury consultant,a publicist and a host of medical more,0,879493.story?obret=obinsite.

Michael Jackson’s children are said to be considering ways to maintain their late father’s legacy and are reportedly looking over an offer to appear in their own TV reality show together.

According to the Daily Mail, Diane Dimond, author of Be Careful Who You Love: Inside The Michael Jackson Case, says the siblings Prince Michael, 14, Paris, 13, and Blanket, nine are, “Down-to-earth kids, not full of themselves, not pretentious…they don’t wear $500 sneakers and, except for their father’s trial, they don’*****ch TV.”

However a family acquaintance said of the youngest Jackson, Blanket, “He is shy, speaks very little and seems to be more shell-shocked than his siblings.”

Meanwhile, Paris was recently the victim of a cyber-bully, when she was taunted on Twitter by people claiming the King Of Pop was not her biological father. The teenager went to the police but hit back with posts proclaiming her "100% Jackson blood" and referring to herself as a "natural Jackson" in another post

A Michael Jackson do***entary, filmed during his 1992/1993 'Dangerous World Tour' is set to make more than £4 million when it goes up for sale next month.

A previously unseen Michael Jackson do***entary could make more than £4 million when it goes up for auction later this month.

The backstage footage from the King of Pop's 1992/1993 'Dangerous World Tour' was recorded by a do***entary crew but Michael was reportedly so unhappy with the end product he fired the filmmakers and gave the only existing copy to an unnamed driver, who has now put it up for sale.

The chauffeur - who claims Michael gave him the film as a "reward or a bonus" for his "transportation services" - kept the tape a secret until the star's death from an overdose of Propofol in June 2009 when he posted a brief clip on YouTube.

Although Michael's record label and lawyers tried to claim exclusive rights to the do***entary, a judge ruled in favour of the driver saying it was a gift although it was ruled that he could not make copies.

The two-hour do***entary is set to be of huge interest because it features behind-the-scenes images and contains footage of Jordy Chandler, who accused Michael of child abuse before he and his parents settled out of court.

Ted Owen - CEO of Fame Bureau auctioneers, who will be responsible for selling the footage - said: "I'm very excited that this tape is finally going to be seen because of its quality, the amount of cameras used and the sheer closeness you are to the performance when watching it."

Meanwhile, the estate of the late singer has given Queen permission to release previously unheard tracks recorded by Michael and the late Freddie Mercury in the early 80s when the rockers were touring the US.

Guitarist Brian May said: "The Michael Jackson estate are happy for us to go ahead with the music. But it's not something that we can rush.

"I work on things with the view 'to let's see how it goes'. When it is something we feel is worthwhile then it's nice if we could get it out there."

Conrad Murray Has 'Better Chance of Being Struck By Lightening' Than Getting Probation For Killing Michael JacksonConrad Murray Has 'Better Chance of Being Struck By Lightening' Than Getting Probation For Killing Michael Jackson

Dr. Conrad Murray has a better chance of being struck by lightening, than getting probation for killing Michael Jackson, according to a source, is exclusively reporting.

Reports circulated yesterday that Conrad Murray's lawyers were going to ask Judge Michael Pastor to sentence Murray to probation at the convicted felon's sentencing hearing on November 29, 2011 for killing Michael Jackson.

The King of Pop died on June 25, 2009 from acute Propfol intoxication.

"Conrad Murray's lawyers can ask that their client be given probation, but he has a better chance of being struck by lightening than the judge granting their request,” a source close to the situation tells “The fact that Judge Pastor remanded Murray into custody immediately following his conviction, well, that was clearly a sign to the defense that Judge Pastor will most likely impose the full four year prison sentence to the convicted killer.”

Jail overcrowding in California dictates that if Murray is sentenced to four years in state prison, he would serve about half of that sentence in a county jail. Murray's lawyers are hoping that if Judge Pastor does impose the full sentence, their client would be released on house arrest because the conviction is considered a non-violent felony.

"Murray's lawyers shouldn't be counting on house arrest, period. Each house arrest inmate has their case thoroughly reviewed by jail officials. Judge Pastor can order that Murray not be eligible for house arrest, but the final decision is up to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. The DA, David Walgren will ask that the judge sentence him to four years in jail," an insider tells

There was a contempt hearing Wednesday morning stemming from Dr. Paul White's comments that he made to the press about Deputy District Attorney David Walgren. The judge had imposed a gag order during the trial, and Dr. White called the DA a "s***bag" during Walgren's questioning of Dr. Steven Shafer.

"Dr. White deliberately put out evidence that was not allowed, intentionally tried to throw the case in an attempt to deny the People a fair trial," Walgren said in court. Judge Pastor agreed and fined Dr. White $250. The doctor asked if he could have 30 days to pay the fine, and the judge agreed.

Dr. Conrad Murray's decision to participate in a do***entary about the Michael Jackson death trial could be used at his sentencing hearing on November 29, is exclusively reporting.

The convicted felon sat down with the Today Show before being found guilty of killing Jackson on June 25, 2009.

“I don't feel guilty, because I did not do anything wrong, I am very, very sorry for the loss of Michael... Michael is a personal friend. It's heartfelt. It's been painful," Murray told Savannah Guthrie.

Murray's interview with Guthrie, and a British reporter, as well as the do***entary which aired in the U.S. on MSNBC last Friday, could be played by the District Attorney at the sentencing hearing.

"The DA is considering playing excerpts of Murray's interviews. It's admissible, and completely legal. It's very compelling evidence, as Murray told the investigating officers a very different series of events that took place, than what he revealed during what was aired on television,” a law enforcement source tells

“Walgren hasn't decided if he is going to play the interviews, but it only makes his case stronger that Judge Pastor should sentence Murray to four years in state prison because of his inability to tell the truth, on a consistent basis."

As previously reported, the executors of Jackson's estate, John Branca and John McClain, blasted NBC for airing the do***entary. The executors fired off a letter to the network which said, "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.

“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."

The do***entary also highlighted the bickering between Murray's lawyers, Ed Chernoff and Michael Flanagan. was first to report that during the trial, things had gotten so bad between the two lawyers, that Chernoff, who lives in Houston, moved out of Flanagan's Southern California home. Chernoff had been staying with Flanagan to save his client money.

During one shocking scene of the do***entary, Flanagan says, "F**k you," to Chernoff during an argument over the defense strategy. Murray criticized Flanagan by saying, "I take offense when my damn attorney is not prepared for that man," referring to prosecution witness Dr. Alon Steinberg.

Stay tuned to for developments on this story.

poor guy    

Dr. Murray saved children from a sick man.

-Michael Jackson was thrice accused of child molestation (Chandler, Francia, Arvizo)

-Michael Jackson settled his 1st case for $25 million after a 13-yr-old boy accurately drew a detailed description of his genitals, including marks that can only be seen during an erection.

-Michael Jackson had an alarm system for his bedroom that would go off when someone was approaching.

-Michael Jackson had a 2nd hidden bedroom within his main bedroom.

-Three different types of semen were found on Michael Jackson's mattress--one belonged to him, and the two others belonged to different males. A fourth sample of semen was found in Michael's bedsheets, and a fifth on a size small pair of underwear stored in a bag with Michael's own soiled underwear. No female DNA was detected.

-During the raid, police discovered that Michael Jackson had multiple books of nude children including "Boys Will be Boys", which is an extremely explicit book of young boys in erotic poses (this was locked in a filing cabinet in his room).

-According to FBI files, a couple on a train heard disturbing noises coming from a cabin that Michael shared with a boy. They noted that he was very possessive of the boy, & they were so concerned by what was seen/heard that they reported the incident to the conductor. This occurred prior to any public abuse accusations.

-Michael Jackson owned a nude photo of his pubescent friend Jonathan Spence, a boy he shared his bed with for years.

Anyone who still doesn't realize that he was a child predator is an idiot.

LMAO, now it's Flanny's fault. Bet he was itching to administer some propofol to him at that precise moment. The bloke is a dangerous fool.
