Michael Jackson’s Doctor Speaks Out In A TV Interview


Michael Jackson’s Doctor Speaks Out In A TV Interview – Michael Jackson’s doctor, Conrad Murray, has been convicted of the involuntary manslaughter of the star. However, despite of the conviction, he defended his use of propofol to put the singer to sleep.

Murray did not testify at trial but just before the verdict, the doctor had a TV interview where he said he gave Jackson an inconsequential amount of propofol. Base on the investigation, a coroner discovered that the star died in June 2009 of acute propofol intoxication.

According to Jackson’s family, the interview of Murray gives him a platform to shift the blame. The interview will be aired in two parts on Thursday and Friday morning. The people behind the program started working with Murray in November 2009.Even the trial was taking place, they continued to film Murray.

Murray said in the interview that although propofol is not recommended to be given in the home setting, it is not contraindicated. After he claimed that Jackson had been using the anaesthetic long before he met him, he neglect to inform the paramedics that he had given Jackson the drug for it was just such a small dose. The doctor gave Jackson 25 milligrams of propofol.

When Murray was asked if he was right to leave Jackson alone, he said: “Had I known what I know today in retrospect, that Mr Jackson was an addict and he had shared that information with me, addicts may behave in a way that is unreasonable and you may consider it.” The doctor took a phone call while Jackson was sleeping after having been deprived of it. He had no idea the singer would stop breathing because the dose he gave him was too small to have any effects.

The Jackson estate wrote to MSNBC requesting that they “exercise proper judgement and refrain from airing the program.
