Jackson Fans Fuming Over Winfrey's Molestation Show

OPRAH WINFREY has been criticised by members of a MICHAEL JACKSON fan group over plans to air an interview with the King of Pop's kids just days after she screens a show discussing child molestation.
The TV titan is due to broadcast a special episode of her talk show on Monday (08Nov10), which will see her chatting to Jackson's mother Katherine, as well as his children, Prince Michael, 13, Paris, 12, and eight-year-old Blanket.
But she has come under fire for scheduling the episode just three days after a planned programme titled '200 Adult Men Who Were Molested Come Forward'.
Winfrey insists the scheduling is "purely coincidental", but members of the Official Michael Jackson Fans of Southern California group are not happy about the timing.
A representative from the syndicate tells TMZ.com, "We are both angry and disappointed in Oprah's constant need to reference child molestation shows prior to airing Michael Jackson related episodes. Her tone seems to speak volumes... How can something so obvious be a coincidence?"
The pop superstar was tried on child molestation charges in 2005 and later acquitted.

Oprah - "SWIFT AND SUDDEN FALL FROM GRACE"Her obsession with pedophilia has nothing to do with Michael Jackson. Michael Jackson is just her whipping post. She has shown her true colors (yellow for Coward)and just because MJ wasn't interested in her, she is really ticked off...the wrath of a woman scorned.....awwwww!

Go get some professional therapy Oprah..Michael put you on the world map and you stabbed him in the back. Michael would hate you anywhere near his kids. You have lost respect and credibility.Try and move on, so you were molested as child so were thousands of others STOP using MJ as your whipping post.

Elisabeth Gran ...

I wonder what Oprahs intention is with this "stunt" ?? No doubt about it ,,Not only has she been invited in to Michael Jackson's residence before (1993) And been rued to him during her interwive ,BUT also she claims in following years ,that she is not sure if he is ,or are guilty in the molest case !!! She then produced a program ,last year (like a tribute ,and apoligized about her ignorance during her before interwive) (sorry my English here ,but i think my point is noticed) All of the sudden after Michael's death ,she feel she owe the world alot of attention around the Jackson's !!?? Why ??? Haunting Lisa Mari P is absolutley LOW !! Lisa is not realible in the questions Oprah seduce her to answer ..(sorry Lisa) ..THEN ,,she throwes her self after the Children and Katherin ,to make sure that she have completed her constantly desire of "cracking the Jackson code " and get it out to the people !!! Oprah preform like an self made GOD when she runs after the Jackson like a dog after bones !!! Very sad and conveniend that she had to "book in " the molest programs right uppon her exclusive interwive with the Children and Katherin ??!! I think this case need the attention ,because frankly ,i see this behaviour like insanity !!! How dare she use the Children for HER own benefit to get her RATES up before she retire ?? And right after and between these other shows ?? She knows the effect and she have all the possibillity to change the dates ..Oprah dear ,,Im sorry to say ,,Im soooo Dissepointed and i do feel sorry for all of the children that has been victim of molestation ,My heart bleeds for those poor souls ..But pleas ,Like we all know ,Michael should NOT be haunted with this ,or his family ..He was and will always be inesent !!! Pleas be proud of all you have achived ,WALK WITH PRIDE !!!! (african expression) And do the right thing ...Sincerley ONE OF MICHAELS TRUE FANS ,,ONE OF MILLIONS !!! Elisabeth Gran Norway

It is not a coincidence at all!!! If it only happened once then I could give her some rope but EVERY TIME she has a show related to MJ she does this! It's just sick!!! However I feel sorry for her because she can't seem to get over her own baggage to see that Michael was indeed innocent even though he was very eccentric. The two have nothing to do with the otherI'm not a fan of Oprah for many more reasons then just how she mistreats Michael Jackson. However, how she continues to put doubt out there about his innocents (which he was based purely on the facts of the case, not the media), it just the straw that breaks the camels back for me. But I still have nothing personal against her.

OMG!!!!!she so planned that she never liked MJ we the true fans know that...So don't believe her or her production studio. I wish his Mother would not have accepted her invitation to discuss her son the late KING OF POP MICHAEL JACKSON, no one needs to hear Opra lie thru her teeth and shw any sympathy for Kathreine & his children, its fake, I hope he is watching and guides them all in a better direction, MJ was and always will be the Best, only the good die young....God saw him suffering and he helped the only way he knows how, RIP MJ WE LOVE YOU

I just can't see why Oprah would have to have 200 men come forward about their molestation episodes.What purpose is this to serve? It's just accomplishing to bring up more hurt with these men.She has been centering on this issue for so long and has had so many shows regarding same. There is a time when one has to move on with their life. She's just had too many shows about this subject.The recent show about her and Gayle going camping I thought would be a cute show as I really like Gayle and think she's nice looking and nice. It had its funny parts no doubt but Oprah really never went camping and it came thru in this show and when in the water fishing she said "this is the first time I've held a fishing pole." (I could hardly believe this as I thought most kids went fishing sometime in their young life.)And the fact that she was in her PJ's and not regular clothes. Oh well!

I can't believe O Winfrey could do this to the Jackson Family!!! Esp interviewing MIchael's Children, knowing that he did not want his Children exposed to what Michael had gone through all years he's been in show business!! HOPING Kathrine and Joe will change their minds about doing the intervies, for the sake of MIchael's Children!!! Jeanne L Long Island New York

Oprah - the ultimate vulture gets the ultimate prey. The kids are too young yet to realize they have been sold down the river to someone who trashed and held their father up for public ridicule. Someday they will be old enough to understand the horror he suffered and will realize they were sold out for money -- just like their father.
