BOYCOTT MSNBC, NBC (USA) CHANNEL 4 (UK), CHANNEL 9 (AUSTRALIA)


PREVENTING AN OBSCENITY:  FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE & ACTION


After the small measure of justice won today, the exploitation of Michael Jackson for profit and ratings continues. 

By appearing in a documentary that will undoubtedly seek to portray Conrad Murray as a ‘sympathetic’ victim of circumstance, Murray and his defense team who may well be planning an appeal – will now attempt to negate the fact of the Guilty verdict in real terms.

It is beyond repellent that a previously well-regarded organization like NBC Universal would now seek to reward a proven criminal for killing another human being.

In the aftermath of the Conrad Murray verdict, 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.  

We succeeded then and we can succeed now.

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:

NBC Entertainment and Universal Media Studios
100 Universal City Plaza
Universal City, CA  91608
Phone: 818-777-1000

MSNBC Public Relations
NO Murray documentary

Phil Griffin

Sharon Otterman   
Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer

Jeremy Gaines
Vice President Media Relations

Bill Wolff
Vice President, Primetime Programming



2.  Commit to not watch the program and persuade everyone around you to do same. 

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 perversion.  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


Calling all members of Michael Jackson fan community:

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 can do this!  We can snatch profit from the pockets of a killer and his handlers.


Call…Write…Tweet…Fax...Share…Spread…Don’t stop!

  1. Yesterday was a great day for Victory
    It is the right thing to do
    Was it not right is airing this nonsense documentary
    If Murray wanted to speak, he should have done it in court
    There is no doubt in my mind Murray knew this already because his face had no expression while verdict was being read
    How could u do this? It is an insult

    Proud of all Jackson Family & MJ Fans from all around the world
    Let me here u on this

  3. Whenever Conrad Murray opens his mouth there's only one thing coming out - lies, lies, lies. He lied to the paramedics, lied to Michael's mother, lied to LAPD, lied to his lawyers. What does he have to say in a new interview ? Only one thing - more lies, lies, lies.
    I fully support this boycott on any channel that is considering airing a documentary about a convicted murderer raising his popularity and giving him another chance to slander Michael's character.
    What Murray did in the last 2 years doesn't matter. There is only one day in Murray's life that matters - the day he murdered Michael Jackson.

  4. This is the direct phone number to Phil Griffin. The secretary just told me she received ONE phone call today and that was from me. And that she had received no emails or faxes. Please, please make an effort to call! This is so important!

  6. The guilty verdict is an awesome VICTORY for Michael!!! It proves without a doubt that Conrad Murray was negligent when he enabled Michael to have access to the drugs that killed him. It's also proof Murray did not have Michael's best interests at heart--that he was only thinking about the dollar amounts he'd be receiving.

    Conrad Murray is now a convicted felon and should not be allowed to profit from his crime.
    I most definitely intend to BOYCOTT all the stations choosing to air this program. The last thing these stations deserve is ratings for this atrocity.

  7. Boycott with your viewershipNovember 8, 2011 at 10:09 PM

    The best way to boycott this is to NOT WATCH it!!!!!

    Not on Youtube, online, not on t.v. -- no where.

    They are interested in ratings to satisfy their sponsors. Without that, there is NO interest!

    I think writing and tweeting, etc. are also good ideas, but not if then you turn around and watch the program.

  8. I am soooo effing mad right now!

    I phoned channel 9 (Australia) today and was basically told that regardless of complaints they will not pull this piece of trash "documentary" from air. The guy I spoke to said that due to the "effort" that ch9 went through in getting the documentary and due to it being a "world premier" (hmm) and due to the interest in the subject (grrrrrr!!) they will not remove it.

    I told them that maybe Ch9 should be a leader in this and NOT show it and that to the international community our media will look even worse than what it does now. I also explained my frustration at airing something that can only be biased because whatever Murray says in the "documentary" Michael is not here to refute the claims.

    But nuh, there is no way they are budging on this.

    This is going to be aired guys, and people will just suck it up and take it all as gospel. I definitely will not watch it in any capacity, but the general public will, and then they will form opinions based on fiction. I hate tabloid crap media.

  9. I saw the Channel 4 (UK) docummentary announcement in the newspaper today and went ballistic. THIS IS COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE. LEAVE MICHAEL JACKSON ALONE!!!! WE HIS (MICHAEL'S) FAMILY (FANS) AROUND THE WORLD WILL NOT STAND FOR ANY MOCKERY, INSULT, DEGRADATION OR MALICIOUS SCRUTINY BROUGHT AGAINST MICHAEL JACKSON OR HIS IMMEDIATE FAMILY. WE STAND UNITED AS ONE FOR MICHAEL AND STRENUOUSLY IMPLORE ALL CONTRIBUTING MEDIA ESTABLISHMENTS TO RELINQUISH AND SQUASH ANY ATTEMPTS TO BROADCAST ALL PROGRAMMES AIMED AT TARNISHING THE MEMORY, DIGNITY AND IMAGE OF MICHAEL JACKSON INDEFINITELY.
