Conrad Murray Documentary to Air on MSNBC; Michael Jackson Estate, Fans Irate

by at . Comments

As previously reported, MSNBC is planning to air a controversial documentary about Dr. Conrad Murray this weekend, and Michael Jackson's estate is absolutely livid.

The star's executors issued a statement, saying, "Like so many of Michael’s fans, the Estate is disgusted by MSNBC’s irresponsible and inexplicable decision."

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

Jackson's fans are understandably up in arms as well, with the group "Justice 4 MJ" trying to organize a global boycott of the documentary about Murray. "The only documentary we want to see is the one of Murray enjoying prison life," they said.

Murray was found guilty of manslaughter earlier this week.

"Michael Jackson and The Doctor: A Fatal Friendship," filmed during the lead-up to the trial, does not paint the late singer in a flattering light.

Branca and McClean are irate 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, and at the network for giving him a platform.

The co-executors doubt MSNBC's claim that Murray got paid only $1 for his participation, claiming "moral loopholes" (such as those they're reportedly using to try to lure Casey Anthony) to "boost ratings at a struggling network."

Murray will be sentenced November 29.

You all must be crazy..i love MJ but he was an addict..Murray is being used as a guinea pig and being made an example beacause its MJ.If it was a normal person that no one knew he would be found not guilty..MJ was addicted to drugs for years and his family should have been their to help him not cheering in court for an innocent doctor

The documentary is not flattering to Conrad Murray. It shows him as the narcissistic, arrogant person that he truly was. Perhaps, at one point during his career, he was an honest and caring physician, but by March 2009, when he was first approached by AEG and asked for $5,000,000 for his services, he was no longer that doctor. Murray refuses to accept any responsibility for Jackson's death. He has stated that while the use of propofol in a bedroom may not be recommended, it is not contra-indicated. This is his way of using medical jargon to justify his negligence. No doctor was willing to agree with that what he did was appropriate medicine. After seeing the Today Show interview and excerpts from the documentary, I believe even more firmly that Conrad Murray is a bad guy and deserves to go to jail.

Correction *one of his brothers said he WASNT an addict.

now i'm not someone who good at english but pls listen,i was about to crying when everytime i see doctor murray face. he absolutely not guilty.. one bigest mistake he made is to working with MJ. i really want to asking, IF person tat called a big star or a king die without someone touching them at all, they would drag someone to blame also???
and for Mj family and friends, i know how sad you are for his missing. but face the fact. everyone will die one day. or today. be prepared for that. and with this MJ situation,taking pills when everytime want to sleep and his condition is not so well, how could you blame someone kill him???think for a sec.that man you blaming have a family like you did,. he also have a love in his heart. why must you be so mean like that.

Michael Jackson, in my opinion, was a fantistic performer. However, he was a drug addict and a paedophile of young boys. So for people to make him out to be a saint and a "do gooder" is questionable.

California Boys by Michael Jackson
[Brian Oxman]
Greetings young ones
Let's take a journey to Neverland
[Michael Jackson - Verse 1]
I know a place
Where the grass is really greener
Warm, wet and wild (Talkin' bout the kiddies)
There must be somethin' in the water
Sippin' Jesus Juice
Layin' on my bed (Drunk)
The boys -
We break their necks
If they try to tell (On us)
You could travel the world
But nothing comes close
To the Neverland Ranch
Once you party with us
You'll be drunk and drugged up
Oooooh oh oooooh
[MJ - Chorus]
California Boys
They're unforgettable
Cookies and Milk
They're having a sleepover
Pale young skin
So hot
We'll give the parents gifts if they notice (if they notice)
Oooooh oh oooooh
California Boys
They're undeniable
Fine, fresh, fierce
I got Mesereau on retain-er
Pedophiles represent
Now put the glove up
Oooooh oh oooooh
Tee hee.
