MJ Fans & Advocates – ACTION ALERT! — Only one day after the guilty verdict was rendered, Conrad Murray and the media plan to (further) exploit the man he 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.
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 facts 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 convicted criminal for killing another human being. But that’s what they’ve chosen to do.
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
President, West Coast Business Operations,
Television Entertainment, NBC Universal
Executive Vice President, Publicity
Executive Vice President, Programming

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:
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.

Here is a sample letter:
To Whom It Concerns,
Please do not air this atrocity of a documentary. When did sensationalizing a guilty man and glorifying the crime he committed against an Ideal Human Being become such a good idea it needed to be televised?
Would you do the same for Troy Davis? Wait, let me guess… No, right?
The line of human decency is continuously crossed when it comes to the media and its handling of Michael Jackson and stories related.
Your affiliated station and its programs are better off letting Michael Jackson rest. In peace.
Please do not give the man convicted for the death of the Greatest Giver of our time a second thought.
I am asking you to remove this hideous documentary from the airwaves. Expect to see diminished ratings for your station as I will no longer waste my time on sensationalized, demonized tabloid reporting. We are truly TIRED of that.
