The MJGlobal family has endured 29 months of suspense and grief after our brother, Michael Jackson was so brutally and carelessly killed by Conrad Murray. WE have prayed, meditated, held candlelight vigils to support one another and the Jackson family.
Our collective exhalations of relief at the Guilty verdict were fleeting and momentary as we discovered he and his lawyers had found a way to usurp the legalities preventing profiting from his crime. Please read a letter from the Estate regarding the unimaginable temerity of MSNBC to purchase and air a one-sided ‘pity party” documentary prepared by “poor” Conrad Murray. We have removed addresses, emails and contact information to protect the privacy of the Estate attorneys.
John Branca sent this letter to all head of the corporate entity that oversees MSNBC
Brian L. Roberts, Chairman and CEO or Comcast Corp
Stephen B. Burke, CEO of NBC Universal
Marc Graboff, Pres. West Coast Business Operation- NBC TV Network
Phil Griffin President MSNBC
We do hope that they will have a modicum of human decency and comprehend that their rash and inexcusable attempts at proffering the point of view of a convicted felon is an affront to all social sensibilities. The only reason MSNBC even considered this unprecedented airing of such an atrocity is because the victim is Michael Jackson.
For years it has been quite acceptable for the media to treat Michael as if he were less than human. Twenty years he was chased, berated and scandalized by fabricated stories and baseless rumors from unnamed “sources” . Self proclaimed “experts” like Dimond, Tababorelli and now the newcomers Shmuley and Halperin all had axes to grind and agneda and books to promote.
When will it end???
The MJGlobal family in the time of grief must set aside their tears and stand up against this continued harassment and bullying of Michael by the media.

MSNBC & OTHER TV NETWORKS REWARDING A CRIMINAL
On June 25, 2009, Michael Jackson’s life was taken.
The world lost a great artist and one of its brightest, humanitarian lights. A family lost a loved one, someone cherished to them in ways our own family members are special and precious to each of us.
Since Michael’s death, many have used and exploited his name for their own gain and benefit. Would we expect anything less from the man convicted of causing his death?
The same man who refused to testify in the trial, when a family and the jury were desperate for answers, pre-meditatively found the time to secure a media ‘fly on the wall’ deal for himself, in which now, presumably, full recollection of the events that took a relatively healthy father of three from his family, will now be generously explained. Murray did so while skirting the law and finalizing payment so it was insured he would be paid no matter the verdict.
It is known thatplans for this ‘documentary’ were made some two years ago and completed during Murray’s own trial. A sane observer would have to ask: Was this the reason Murray felt the need to illicitly tape his patient, the one patient he was hired to care for? Will this audio and other trial related artifacts appear in this film?
The facts speak for themselves.In hindsight, we can now allsee the clever game the defense team and their guilty client – Conrad Murray – played on the court, the American people and the justice system. While the defense team was telling the jury this was not a reality TV program, behind the scenes a ‘tell-all’ deal for big bucks and face-time was being inked.
So much for the tears.
But of course we have known all along that Murray’s so-called relationship with Michael Jackson was based solely on Murray’s greed. After this painful trial, a guilty verdict was heard around the world – a small measure of justice, but justice nonetheless. We all felt a brief sense of vindication, knowing that the man responsible for Michael Jackson’s death was finally being held accountable.
Only hours later, we would learn that Murray and MSNBC, part of the NBC Universal company, planned to air this ‘documentary’. This “reality show”, which will undoubtedly seek to negate the important statement the guilty verdict made, and will attempt to tell the world that “poor Conrad Murray” only mistakenly changed the course of four lives one morning in June 2009.
We are outraged that MSNBC, NBC or any other media outlet would even consider airing this ‘documentary’. Why, how, can this be justified for any other reason but money? The very ideaof this ‘documentary’ doesn’t just reward a crime, it diminishes the loss of a life, it diminishes NBC Universal, its shareholders and viewers – it diminishes all of us.
This verdict isn’t even a week old and sentencing is still to be finalized. Yet Murray — who had nothing to say in court when it really mattered — now wants to talk without the challenge of a cross-examination by DDA Walgren. The only thing that has changed since the trial is the price.
A man is dead, three children will never see their father again, but to “poor Conrad Murray”, MSNBC and Zodiac Rights — the timing couldn’t be better.
Michael Jackson fans have had enough. Ridicule us if you must, call us names, tell us we only think of Michael as an ‘idol’ — but we are not the ones selling his memory, objectifying him and making money off him.
We are boycotting MSNBC, NBC and will mount a protest to any media outlet that chooses to air this film. In the last 24 hours, we have reached out to MSNBC, NBC and some of their biggest advertisers, Pillsbury, Netflix, Comcast and others, to escalate this boycott. We call on all MSNBC and NBC sponsors to pull out their ads. 40 million fans worldwide refuse to endorse what amounts to nothing more than the shameless, contemptible exploitation of a human being — by the very hand that killed him.
Michael Jackson deserves better. His children deserve better and we, as a country, deserve better than this proposed obscenity.
Because crime shouldn’t pay.
