Conrad Murray 60 Minutes interview When presenter Liz Hayes asks Conrad Murray, “Do you think he was a paedophile?
Would it destroy Jackson if Murray were to say “Absolutely not, Michael was not a pedophile”?
No, that would, if anything, bolster Jackson’s reputation.
I have put them in that order for a very good reason, and it is this: The closer Jackson became to a boy, and the longer he knew a boy, the further the abuse progressed.
Terry George had Jackson talking about masturbation on the telephone with him; Jason Francia endured hugging, then kissing, then fondling of his genitals (disguised as tickling); Jordan detailed a steady progression from hugging to kissing to fondling to oral sex; and Wade, who knew Jackson the longest and was seemingly the closest to him, included all of that plus went further to include sodomy. From what we know about acquaintance molesters they become more bold with their victims as time goes by. Jackson defenders insist that Wade Robson is only after money, and is lying about the abuse.
“One thing I will tell you is this: I may have formed an impression of an individual based upon certain things I have seen or encountered.” Ms Hayes was not going to be put off, after all, this is someone who knows Jackson very well and she doesn’t want this question left hanging.
“The reason I’m pressing you is because by saying what you’re saying, you are deliberately muddying the waters here, because that’s what you’re doing – you’re leaving it unclear about your thoughts.
Secondly we have Conrad Murray, credited as “the doctor who killed Michael Jackson” by the fan community.
While we won’t go in to the ins and outs of Murray’s trial, conviction or subsequent appeal as that is not the focus of this website, we will however note his comments in an interview he gave in November 2013 to Australian current affairs show 60 Minutes (a franchised version of the US stalwart).
That book, a mish mash of everything to divert attention away from Jackson’s obviously inappropriate behaviour with boys, is reviewed here. Why….because I watched the testimony of June Chandler in the court in Santa Maria, Jordy Chandler’s mother, and was, how shall I put it? She was talking about Michael staying in the hotel room with Jordy, Michael sleeping over at her house with Jordy, about Michael crying if he couldn’t stay in the same room with Jordy. It was very unnerving and I felt like he was in love with that boy and whether or not there was any more to it, obviously we’ll never know, but everything that his mother was testifying to, when I was reading between the lines, made me very uneasy.” Now to you or I, this mightn’t seem extraordinary, in fact the vast majority of people who read it (or hear it) would nod their head in agreement, however in the world of MJ defenders, this is heresy.
In any case, Mario Nitrini met Aphrodite and has this to say: ” … We have shown that Aphrodite can speak out of both sides of her mouth, and she displayed that brilliantly in an interview with Jordan King on November 5th. In that huddle of overly enthusiastic Jackson fandom, anything, absolutely anything which casts even a sliver of doubt upon Jackson’s motives with children is met with howls of outrage and shuddering feelings of anger.
During the trial she was a reporter and she said herself that during the entire proceedings she was convinced that Jackson was guilty.
