Discovery Relents, Cancels Atrocious Autopsy Re-enactment

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

If you haven’t heard, our weeks-long campaign to get this awful program cancelled (ie: “postponed indefinitely” as they put it) has succeeded! According to Reuters:

(Reuters) – The Discovery television network on Friday said it canceled plans to air a reenactment of the autopsy on Michael Jackson’s body, citing an upcoming court hearing and concern by the late pop star’s estate.

The show, “Michael Jackson’s Autopsy: What Really Killed Michael Jackson,” had been set to air in several countries of western Europe and in the United Kingdom on January 13.

“Given the commencement of legal proceedings beginning next week, and at the request of Michael Jackson’s estate, the scheduled broadcast of the medical documentary related to Michael Jackson’s official autopsy has been postponed indefinitely,” Discovery Networks International said in a statement.

A Discovery spokesman declined comment beyond the statement.

Statement from John Branca and John McClain, co-executors of the Estate of Michael Jackson:

The Estate of Michael Jackson is pleased that Discovery Channel made the correct decision in choosing to cancel this exploitative program. We are hopeful that this show will never run in any market in the future. While Discovery cited legal proceedings and our request as the reasons for its decision, none of this would have happened had it not been for the incredible passion displayed by countless Michael Jackson fans worldwide who knew they stood as one and that their voices could not be ignored.

Here is Discovery’s official release:

Discovery cancels Michael Jackson autopsy TV show

LOS ANGELES | Fri Dec 31, 2010 12:49pm EST

LOS ANGELES Dec 31 (Reuters) – The Discovery television network on Friday said it canceled plans to air a reenactment of the autopsy on Michael Jackson’s body, citing an upcoming court hearing and concern by the late pop star’s estate.

The show, “Michael Jackson’s Autopsy: What Really Killed Michael Jackson,” had been set to air in several countries of western Europe and in the United Kingdom on Jan. 13.

“Given the commencement of legal proceedings beginning next week, and at the request of Michael Jackson’s estate, the scheduled broadcast of the medical documentary related to Michael Jackson’sofficial autopsy has been postponed indefinitely.”

We have hundreds (well over 500) of letters to Discovery executives and over 10,000 petition signatures!  As far as I know these are still being FedEx’d overnight to Discovery’s Nicolas Bonard and David Zaslav. This will be a huge brick on their desks when they arrive!  THIS is what we can accomplish when fans unite! We all wrote letters, called, signed petitions, spread the word far and wide, tweeted, Facebooked, and notified Michael’s family and his estate. They expressed shock that Discovery would air such a program. They finally weighed in, and all together we got this hideous thing “postponed indefinitely“.

Believe in yourself..no matter what…even if the whole world tells you that you can’t do it. -Michael Jackson

HOWEVER, this does not mean our phone calls and letters to Discovery should stop! Why? Because Discovery still have the film footage and could reschedule the airing of this program at any time (thus the use of the word “postponed“). Let me share a couple of wise quotes with you:

Lynton Guest tweets:

I can’t believe Dscovery has cancelled. Amazing. I have never heard of a TV channel doing this befroe under pressure. But keep watching them.

Karen Faye tweets:

Don’t be fooled when the devil does a good deed…he is still the devil. Stay vigilant my dear friends, stay vigilant.

So write to those Discovery executives, and call them and commend them.

But – also let them know that we know they still have that film footage and that we are watching, and that if they endeavor to EVER air it, the same pressure will be brought upon them a thousandfold and they WILL feel it – right in their bottom lines. The next entities we were going after were their sponsors and I guarantee you we would have caused them to lose a significant amount of profit over this. So . . .don’t let up on them yet. Put them on notice!

Writer Deboarah Ffrench suggests that we reinforce Discovery’s decision. Tell them it’s appreciated & that a U-turn — rather than being weakness — shows they can respond flexibly and show some decency. For good measure, add that ‘Discovery‘ will now be welcome in your homes, but the decision to cancel must be final.

As long as they have that footage, there is a possibility they may re-schedule its airing and we will have to be vigilant. If anyone sees any evidence that this program is being rescheduled, please let me know ASAP!

UPDATE on Discovery Autopsy Program: MJ Estate Weighs In, Protest Continues!

Category: Justice,PhotosSeven @ 4:22 am

•

On December 29th, Michael Jackson’s Estate weighed in on that degrading autopsy re-enactment program we’ve been trying to get everyone to call and write to Discovery about. We’ve also been urging everyone to call and block or cancel Discovery Channel from their cable or satellite dish lineup. These efforts continue! Keep writing and calling and blocking Discovery! Letters are due by December 31st! This is so [email protected] (MJ Justice Project) has time to print, organize, and bind the letters and petition signatures into a package to be sent to top-level Discovery executives on January 3rd, at the latest. So be sure to copy [email protected] on your letters!

We have well over 500 letters and almost 10,000 signatures to send to them! Can we get to 600 or 700 letters and over 10,000 signatures?  Details on who to call and write, as well as on where to sign petitions can be found HERE.

Below is the stern, deservedly vitriolic letter Michael Jackson’s Estate sent to Discovery executives on December 29th:

Estate letter to Discovery Execs 12-29-2010

Estate letter to Discovery Execs 12-29-2010

Over 200 related media sites are now reporting on this issue and the estate’s letter, including journalist Charles Thomson at SAWFNews: http://www.sawfnews.com/Gossip/66036.aspx

December 29, 2010, (Sawf News) – Trustees of Michael Jackson’s estate have slammed an upcoming documentary about the star’s autopsy as ‘sick’ and ‘debased’.

In an open letter to Discovery Communications, trustees John Branca and John McClain urged the network to cancel its upcoming show, ‘Michael Jackson’s Autopsy: What Really Killed Michael Jackson’.

Branca and McClain complained that the documentary was, “in shockingly bad taste, insensitive to Michael’s family and appears motivated solely by [Discovery’s] blind desire to exploit Michael’s death, while cynically attempting to dupe the public into believing this show will have serious medical value.”

In the letter, the pair said they were especially outraged by a “sickening print advertisement for the program making light of Michael’s death by depicting corpse sprawled on a steel gurney, covered by a sheet with a hand sticking out wearing Michael’s signature sequined glove.”

They said, “Discovery obviously views this as clever advertising and creative ‘branding’ for its program. But in fact, the ad is debased, sick and insensitive.”

Calling the program ‘offensive’, ‘exploitative’ and ‘mind boggling’, the estate called on Discovery to remove the show from its schedules.

A petition by Jackson’s fans to have the show cancelled has thus far received more than 9000 signatures.

Mission Discovery: Update on the fight to stop Discovery from airing MJ’s autopsy re-enactment

Category: Justice,Photos,VideosSeven @ 2:50 am

Dissecting Michael Jackson on TV for money and ratings is beyond the realm of human decency

Discovery's intent to dissect Michael Jackson on TV for ratings & profit is beyond the realm of human decency and morality

Many of you may be aware of a serious situation involving some extremely offensive programming by Discovery Health Channel in the UK, apparently scheduled for forthcoming release on January 13th – January 17th.

Details are as follows:

The Discovery show apparently planned is titled ”Michael Jackson’s Autopsy: What Really Killed Michael Jackson”. It has evidently been out-produced (subcontracted) to Renegade Pictures LTD and is scheduled to air on January 13th, January 14th, January 16th, and January 17th, 2011.

A call placed to Discovery Europe revealed the official description of the program as:

“We re-create his autopsy using anatomically correct synthetic cadaver and examine the official coroner’s report calls on the testimony of experts.”

As you can imagine many people are concerned about the tone and approach Renegade (and by extension Discovery), will be taking on this program. That Discovery would stoop to such a macabre and disrespectful level to attain ratings and therefore profit is beyond any comprehension of human decency and morality. It clearly crosses a line that the media has never dared to cross before and that should in fact not be crossed now, or ever.

There has been a horrific photo – an advertisement put out by Discovery to promote this atrocity – circulating on the internet. That photo will not be posted here or linked to from here at this time. If you add it to your comments regarding this issue, your comment will not be posted. The image clearly reveals Discovery’s tabloid intent in desecrating the name and memory of Michael Jackson for ratings and profit.

This program is being aired purely for sensationalism and ratings. Regardless of Discovery’s propaganda, it is in no way meant to be educational or informative. Discovery claims that airing such a macabre spectacle will “clear up speculation about Michael Jackson’s health“.

On the contrary – all such a program can possibly do is add to rumor, speculation and gossip about Michael’s appearance, sexuality, and health conditions. This is private patient information – information that if it were anyone else – would never be aired on a TV program such as this. It is a matter of simple respect that Michael Jackson’s health and private information should also not be televised in this macabre and horrific manner simply to garner ratings and profits for Discovery behind a pretentious guise of “education“.

The program is to be aired in the UK because airing it in the US would be a violation of US law not to mention a blatant interference with the pre-trial hearings of Conrad Murray, the doctor who was present and attending when Michael Jackson died. This is why it could not be aired in the United States!  As you can see, Discovery is being very deceptive about this program. In fact, we’re told that it actually began production back in 2009, but was kept quiet so that by the time fans, his estate and family learned of it, there would be little to no time to stop it.

With the advent of YouTube and other technologies, it is a certainty that this program, within hours of its broadcast, will be on the internet and on YouTube for ALL to see – no matter where it is initially aired. Furthermore, Discovery will subsequently syndicate the program to air in other countries and it could continue to influence Conrad Murray’s manslaughter trial if there is one.

The information pre-released by Discovery also mentions that a ’long time personal physician’ of Michael’s will comment during the program. That information also states that doctor who will be performing this autopsy is a Dr. Michael Hunter: http://forensic-doc.com/.

I have personally spoken to a few physicians who expressed to me in no uncertain terms that any doctor who would participate in such a hideous program is a charlatan. Period.

•

If this sickens you, if this makes you angry and it should, then you MUST act now. Below are details on what to do to help fight this.

• • •

1. CONTACT YOUR CABLE OR DISH COMPANY and ask to cancel Discovery Channel from your cable or satellite lineup, or ask them how to block Discovery to your home – it’s important to CALL so the call is recorded and gets back to Discovery that people are blocking them. We want to create a very loud buzz about this. DETAILS on how to block Discovery are here:  http://www.filthytabloidtrash.com/2010/12/23/how-to-block-the-discovery-channel/

PETITION SIGNATURES are great — but don’t forget to WRITE LETTERS and CALL Discovery!  In your letters, emails and calls, mention that you are blocking Discovery from your cable or dish service and DO it!  Also ask your friends to cancel and to call and email.

When you send your letters don’t forget to copy [email protected]. They will send the entire package of your letters along with all petition signatures via FedEx to Mr. Bonard and Mr. Zaslav on Jan 2, to arrive Jan 3rd. DEADLINE is December 31st!

Michael’s Autopsy (just like the FBI files) Reveals the TRUTH – But You WON’T Hear it From the Media

Category: Justice,Photos,Quotes About MJSeven @ 4:54 am

•

The excerpts below are from Reflections On The Dance, where Deborah Campise Kunesh has analyzed the autopsy report. We encourage people to seek TRUTH and not swallow wholesale the LIES and sensationalist propaganda that the media spews on a daily basis – and which will only increase in the months ahead as the trial of Conrad Murray gets underway, and as the media further seek to DISTRACT the public’s attention from the FACTS about Michael’s life – and his death. To see her analysis in its entirety, click HERE.

• • •

by Deborah Campise Kunesh,  Reflections On The Dance

Would it surprise you to learn that Michael was telling us the truth all along? I’ve known that all along, as have others, but there are still many who never really listened to him when he was trying to give us the truth as media and tabloids were on a witch hunt to destroy him and his image.

The truth of the matter is that, indeed, Michael Joseph Jackson was telling us the truth, about himself, and his life. We just weren’t listening!

The truth of the matter is that, indeed, Michael Joseph Jackson was telling us the truth, about himself, and his life. We just weren’t listening!

Truth matters. Would you believe me if I told you that Michael Jackson…

Did indeed have vitiligo (confirmed in the autopsy) and did not “bleach” his skin to become white
, and that despite your hearing how he was a junkie, that the only meds they found in him were regular prescriptions, the drugs used to try to resuscitate him and the propofol? It’s all in the official autopsy report.

The truth is, blaming Michael Jackson for his own death is just another lie being spread by the media. Why? Because sensational stories that have drama, intrigue, lies and negative news, SELL! News and stories about do-gooders don’t attract major attention (which is why most of you never heard about Michael’s non-stop charity and helping people and the lives of so many children that he saved). The ugly, sensationalist stories make the newspapers and television media outlets money. The more people watching or buying, the more advertisers they get. The more advertisers, the more money they make. It’s a business, pure and simple.

I felt a need to write this because, with all of the garbage you are going to hear in the coming months, I thought you might want to hear some real, honest truth, straight from the hip. I’ve talked with people, I’ve researched, and I read the autopsy report from top to bottom.

The truth of the matter is that, indeed, Michael Joseph Jackson was telling us the truth, about himself, and his life. We just weren’t listening! The FBI files prove it, the autopsy report proves it (though I don’t agree with the FBI files and the final autopsy report being made public as again, it’s is a gross invasion of his privacy.)

• • •

A man’s life was taken (long before this murder). His life was stolen from him because of all of the lies that were spread about him…by the tabloids, the media, and by everyone who spread those rumors and lies they heard and read as a way to entertain themselves and their friends. After all, it can’t hurt to make fun of someone else, to defame someone’s character, to call someone a freak, to tear another human being apart. That’s what we tell ourselves. What have we become as a society! This could easily have been you or me. It could happen to anyone. So if you don’t care because it doesn’t relate to you, it DOES! You are not immune.

Here is a perfect example of just one of the millions of lies Michael had to endure, day in and day out, courtesy of those who proclaim to be reporting “truth”:

…there was a news program talking about him being in Europe with some little boy. I was sitting next to the guy while the news is making this crap up. He just looked at me and said “this is what I have to deal with.”

Some things that the autopsy report revealed

• • •

1. Confirmation that Michael Joseph Jackson did INDEED suffer from the devastating skin disease, Vitiligo

Straight from the autopsy report:

Sections of skin show no melanocytic pigment. Melanocytes, although present, are reduced in number. There is focal depigmentation of the skin, particularly over the anterior chest and abdomen, face and arms. Diagnosis: Vitiligo.

2. Michael was not a “junkie” or “drug addict”

Michael suffered from severe insomnia. He was not a junkie!

But you are going to be hearing the opposite. Why should you believe me? I’ve read the reports. I’ve spoken to people who knew Michael well and for many, many years. Michael, at one time, did have a prescription drug addiction to painkillers. This was after his scalp was burned during the filming of a Pepsi commercial, causing excruciating pain. He was put on painkillers to help him deal with the pain. He admitted his addiction at the time and sought help. Everyday people become hooked on prescription pain killers all of the time. I personally know some of them. Michael got treatment for that. Michael was ALWAYS against drugs.

The truth is, Michael was on prescription medications. Everyday prescriptions that millions of others are on. Just put yourself in his shoes for a second. People (the tabloids, media, public) were constantly lying on him, calling him a freak, making him out to be something that he wasn’t. Many people betrayed him and to this day, still try to pass themselves off as experts on him or friends of his. There are many who watch these people on television, and believe their lies. This is just another example of something that wasn’t true, being sensationalized.

Just to look at things from the opposite point of view for a second: Even if he were to have had a prescription drug addiction, a treating physician (or physicians) would not ethically prescribe more of these drugs to someone with a problem. No matter the amount of money. Prescription drug addiction many times comes from the nature of the drug. Many drugs are addicting, even in people who won’t so much as normally take an aspirin.

The meds they found in their toxicology reports are standard prescription drugs. What wasn’t found in his system? No alcohol, marijuana, barbiturates, cocaine, no morphine or other opiates, only the prescription meds he was on, the drugs used to try to resuscitate him, and the propofol.  Should he have been given propofol? No, absolutely not.

The official cause of death? Acute propofol intoxication that was ruled as a homicide.

Poor. Conrad. Murray.

Category: Justice,Quotes About MJ,VideosSeven @ 8:21 pm

•

‎Poor. Conrad. Murray. Michael Jackson is dead. And we have to hear about poor Conrad Murray. – Deputy District Attorney David Walgren

Deputy DA David Walgren had Conrad Murray pegged in that courtroom. This was a classic comment. If you didn’t hear it, watch below. Between 3:19 and 8:35, particularly around 8:34-8:35.

I have some thoughts about “Poor. Conrad. Murray”:

This week we learned that Conrad Murray had been preening himself in front of production cameras and doing interviews for two years as he awaited trial, and as he went through his trial. He did so with plans to then shop this footage around to the media before he was convicted to be aired when the trial was over. For a cool million dollars or more in payment to Murray, it is reported that several networks have bought and agreed to air it. I suspect this is the same thing Murray intended to do with that recording he made of Michael Jackson in a heavily sedated state – the one we heard at the beginning of his trial.

The media, who are willing to air practically anything about Michael Jackson for ratings and profit, bought that footage from Murray and it’s reported that it will be aired now, only 2-4 days after the guilty verdict had been rendered.

UPDATE 11/9/2011 – Michael’s estate has responded to this situation:

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” and 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. -Estate of Michael Jackson

Yes. Poor. Conrad. Murray. He’s such an innocent victim of circumstance. And everyone is against him. Doesn’t he ever wonder why?

The thing is, everything that has “happened” to “Poor Conrad Murray” in his life, happened because of the choices he made.

Conrad Murray chose to father 7 children from six different women.

Conrad Murray chose to habitually spend time in strip clubs picking up women.

Conrad Murray chose to become delinquent on his child support, as he wooed new women while the children he already fathered with previous women went without.

Conrad Murray chose to become physically violent with at least one woman, resulting in an arrest for domestic violence.

Conrad Murray chose to become “Michael Jackson’s Doctor” because his narcissistic personality could not resist having that title, even if he didn’t have the skills to do the job and even when he didn’t want to take the actual responsibility to do the work which being such a doctor entailed.

Conrad Murray chose to pump Michael Jackson full of propofol in the bedroom of a home, on top of benzodiazepines, with no monitoring and no resuscitative equipment to help once Michael Jackson stopped breathing.

Conrad Murray chose to be too busy talking and texting on his two cellphones to various women, patients, and others, to notice when Michael Jackson had stopped breathing.

Conrad Murray chose not to call 911 for over twenty minutes after discovering Michael Jackson not breathing.

Conrad Murray chose to instead hide the evidence of what he’d done before instructing a security guard to finally make that call.

Conrad Murray chose to lie (by omission) to paremedics and UCLA medical personnel about his administration of propofol to Michael Jackson.

Conrad Murray chose to preen before cameras for the past two years and during his criminal trial in the interest of profiting off of the name and legacy of the man he murdered.

Conrad Murray is a lot of things: a sociopath, a narcissist, a womanizer. He’s greedy, sneaky, a pathological liar, someone who knows how to use other people to his own full advantage, and most of all, he’s a murderer.

Conrad Murray is all those things.

But one thing Conrad Murray is not — is a hapless, helpless victim of circumstance.

Deputy DA David Walgren had Conrad Murray aptly pegged with the “Poor Conrad Murray” title. He likely knew what a narcissist Conrad Murray was. How Conrad Murray’s world revolves strictly around himself and how everything Conrad Murray does – is done for the benefit of himself and himself alone.

David Walgren knew that there was no one whose interests or well-being were more important to Conrad Murray than Conrad Murray’s. Not even Michael Jackson’s. Not even when Michael Jackson was the only patient Dr. Conrad Murray had to care for. Conrad Murray still put himself first, contrary to the oath he had taken as a physician. Because that’s what sociopaths do. In their minds, their own interests, desires, needs, and wants, are tantamount. No one else’s matter, no matter the circumstances. No matter what. No one. They are conscienceless. No empathy. No remorse. Not for anyone but themselves. They are pathologically incapable of empathy or remorse or caring for anyone but themselves and their own immediate needs. And Deputy DA David Walgren knew it. He stated it very clearly in the courtroom during his closing argument. Because it’s the truth. And narcissists (a milder version of sociopath, some say they are the same) are always, always, victims. Just ask them. They’ll tell you. Every. Time.

Conrad Murray’s self-serving attitude is what got him into this mess. Yet, he still hasn’t learned a thing. Once again, his top priority – his only priority – is himself. That much is evident in this macabre, bizarre, thoughtless move from him.

If “Poor Conrad Murray” wanted to tell his story, why didn’t he do so in court – under oath and subject to cross-examination? Instead, he is essentially getting paid by the media to lie to the public.

For two years, many have wondered who was financially supporting “Poor Conrad Murray“. Now we know. This was all planned, likely with his attorneys’ and/or his PR firm’s help.

Murray was also told how to skirt the gag rule from the judge. He got a private company (not a public media company) to film him for the past two years and during the trial. Because it wasn’t the public media he was talking to and being filmed by during the trial, it was legal and not covered by that gag rule. I called Judge Pastor’s office and checked and that’s what I was told.

The day the verdict was read, the networks already had the footage and the deals were already made.

Our friends at MJJ Justice Project also called Judge Pastor’s office in regards to this film. They were told:

The Judge is well aware of the situation with the Conrad Murray Documentary. The law does state that a felon can not profit from their crime after conviction and incarceration. However, if the terms of the documentary’s purchase where completed prior to end of his trial then there is no law to prevent it. Murray negotiated his deal while he was still presumed innocent therefore, it’s entirely legal.

So, yes Murray evaded the law.

Do you remember those odd episodes of Conrad Murray visiting Forest Lawn while being filmed? Many fans and advocates thought Conrad Murray had his nerve going to visit the grave of man he’d recently killed. But, like any sociopath, his purpose there was not to visit his “friend“, but rather it was part of the making of this documentary. He didn’t go to Forest Lawn for Michael Jackson – he went for Conrad Murray.

You know as well as I do that anyone who is innocent would never carry out such a slimy ruse as creating and selling this type of film to television networks while evading the law, skirting gag orders, and refusing to testify under oath in court. If he can lie for money instead, why would he testify in court for free?  This type of maneuvering and thinking is typical of a sociopath.

Poor. Conrad. Murray.

Poor. Conrad. Murray.

Poor. Conrad. Murray. Michael Jackson is dead. And we have to hear about poor Conrad Murray.

The production company who bought the rights to the film is http://www.zodiakrights.com/Programme.aspx?id=4508.

From their site:

For two years the documentary team filmed secretly with Murray and followed him throughout the trial itself, behind the glare of the public spotlight.

Only now does Murray break his silence, recounting his relationship with Jackson, his relationship with the powerful drug Propofol, and the events of the day Jackson died: fascinating and exclusive testimony.

The film also explores the private and surreal world of Jackson where the controversial use of powerful medication was a way of life, where a man adored by millions lived as a virtual recluse, where an unknown cardiologist from Texas found himself the unexpected companion, confidante and intimate to one of the most famous men in the world.

Their contact page:

http://www.zodiakrights.com/ContactUs.aspx

It is reported that several networks in the US and abroad will be airing Conrad Murray’s documentary in the next few days, only mere hours after the guilty verdict.

The Jacksons should not have to suffer having his film being parasitically aired off the name and legacy of their father/son/brother/uncle after Conrad Murray effectively murdered him.

And these television networks, if they had any ethics at all, would not enable Murray to do so.

It is beyond repellent that any previously well-regarded network would seek to reward a convicted criminal for killing another human being (no matter who he is) by airing such a program.

But like the sociopath Conrad Murray – that’s what the sociopathic television networks have apparently chosen to do.

If this is at all true, it is honestly one of the most conscienceless acts I’ve ever seen. Conrad Murray and the media now plan to (further) exploit the name and memory of the Michael Jackson – the man Murray murdered – for profit and ratings. This smacks of the same level of conscienceless abuse as that autopsy program we stopped Discovery from airing months ago.

If this atrocity airs, Conrad Murray will likely go on about his “friendship” with Michael Jackson. He may say nice things about Michael Jackson and talk about how much he cared about him. Or, he may attempt to portray Jackson as a demanding, addled, drug-addicted, eccentric diva. One thing Conrad Murray will certainly do is to portray himself as an innocent victim of circumstance who only wanted to “help” Michael Jackson with his problems -when what he was really doing was helping himself to the prestigious title of “Michael Jackson’s Doctor“, to a $150,000/month salary, and to what every narcissist craves more than anything: narcissistic supply – secondary to his association with Jackson as the star’s doctor on this tour. Murray and his defense team may well be planning an appeal – and thus will now attempt to negate the facts of the guilty verdict in real terms with this film.

The Hollywood Reporter today provided details of Murray’s documentary, “Michael Jackson and the Doctor—A Fatal Friendship.”

This documentary is already in the can and scheduled to air this week, starting Tuesday morning with a preview on NBC’s Today Show.

The Michael Jackson fan community and supporters must mobilize to obstruct this atrocity—just as we did the Discovery Channel autopsy documentary.

However, this time we don’t have much time. The documentary is scheduled to air in full this coming Friday, November 11 on MSNBC and will repeat Sunday, November 13 on that same cable network.

This is a call to all fans to utilize every mode of communication possible—call, write, fax, tweet— express your outrage at this obscenity. With so little time, our approaches to obstruct this documentary are limited.

1. All fans who are willing to take the time and make the effort should write letters and mail/fax them to:

2. Refuse to watch the program and persuade everyone around you to also refrain from watching the program.

We don’t have time to contact the sponsors of this program. Besides, that would necessitate actually watching the program, which we do not want to do. This is just a start, but we’ve got to start today, Tuesday, November 8.

All fans should feel absolutely free to complain directly to the perpetrators of this perverse effort. Here are just some of the words that describe this documentary and the motives of its makers:

• travesty
• obscene
• despicable
• grotesque
• aberrant
• corrupt
• indecent
• contemptible
• detestable
• vile
• outrageous
• shameless
• cruel
• vindictive
• malicious
• mockery
• self-serving
• abominable

Let’s pull together to obstruct this documentary. Let the producers and distributors behind this travesty know they are about to crash headlong into a world of protest about this attempt to profit from the unlawful killing of Michael Jackson. We must make this effort for Michael’s children and family, if for no other reason. We must try to curtail profits from being deposited into the pockets of this killer and his handlers.

So, share, call, write, tweet, fax, email. Get the word out.
