Does Oprah Have an Agenda? Airing Molestation/ Michael Jackson Episodes Back to Back

It’s probably nothing more than a scheduling coincidence, but conspiracy buffs might start raising a brow with Oprah’s latest schedule flub.

On November 9th, Oprah is airing an episode in which she visits with Michael Jackson’s mother, father, and kids at their home.

The episode will be one of the first with his children, and Oprah will be talking to Katherine Jackson about Michael’s childhood, music career, and legacy.

Problem is, this Friday, Oprah’s show is about men who were molested as children.

In fact, the show description on the website is “200 Men Who Were Molested as Children Come Forward.”

Not the biggest deal right?

Well as pointed out by TMZ, Oprah aired an episode about pedophilia during the jury deliberations for Michael Jackson’s child molestation trial, which sort of ticked the Jackson’s off.

So does she have an agenda?  Is she just trying to please all sides?  Or is this just a scheduling faux pa that is not as big of a deal as it seems.

We’d probably lean towards the third option.

    Only a complete savant would think Oprah doesn’t have an agenda here. She was no friend to Jackson when he was fighting for his life in 2005, happily airing a ‘bitchfest’ interview with Lisa Marie Presley and her mother and laughing at a man under siege for the entertainment of millions.

    Now that the man is dead, these same personalities claim they ‘tried’ to be there for him. The truth is, everyone just wants a peek at the children Jackson went to such acute lengths to protect.

    Charley says: “So does she have an agenda? Is she just trying to please all sides? Or is this just a scheduling faux pa that is not as big of a deal as it seems. We’d probably lean towards the third option.” So you think it’s no big deal, Charley?

    First, Oprah schedules a show on pedophilia during the Jackson’s trial. Second, Oprah schedules Jackson’s former wife, Lisa Marie Presley, last month amid several shows on molestation. Third, Oprah schedules Jackson’s children and grandparents on the Monday following a program on which appear 200 Men who have been molested. Scheduling faux pax you say? Charley, this would have to be the Grand High Trifecta of Faux Pax.

    I’m so tired of that closeted lesbian and her obsession with Michael Jackson. She should grow a life.

    Notably, neither Jordie Chandler nor would-be extortionist Gavin Arvizo will be in the audience on Friday. Jordie will be home counting his money and Gavin will be planning his next scam.

    Oprah has done this before. For a month between 09/15/2010 and 10/15/2010 there was no segments on her program about child molestation at all. Then, the very same week Oprah broadcasted her interview with Lisa Marie discussing Michael Jackson, two shows on childhood sexual abuse were aired. This is an awfully big coincidence to have happen… multiple times.

    I find this all to be in poor taste. Especially given that many erroneously still think Jackson molested children (in reality the allegations were extortion attempts — please see Aphrodite Jones’ book Michael Jackson Conspiracy). Even more distressing Oprah will be featuring Jackson’s 3 kids in this interview of hers. What a slap in the face.

    Was it also a scheduling faux pas when Ms. Winfrey aired two molestation episodes the same
    week that Lisa Marie Presley was a guest? And now there is a question about a possible
    agenda on Oprah’s part? During Friday’s show, will there not be promotion for Monday’s
    interview of Mrs. Jackson and her grandchildren? Ummm…doesn’t take much intelligence
    to put that together. For someone who presents herself as an open, caring, non-judgemental
    person, my thought is that Ms. Winfrey makes an exception when it comes to Michael
    Jackson. From what I’ve read, he was acquitted in 2005 and documented research reveals
    1993 to be extortion. I stopped tuning in to her show a long time ago and that won’t
    change. So…agenda-yes. Big time.

    Here, here Matt.

    I agree Matt. I think the agenda is pretty obvious as well. I’m just suprised TMZ and now this site actually seems to be picking up on it. Funny how neither mentioned the molestation shows scheduled to air the same week as the Lisa Marie Presley interviews. Not to mention the fact that the Lisa Marie interview was supposed to originally air on October 6th and even appeared on TVguides schedule for that day. The date was then changed for no apparrent reason. Hmmmm…..coincidence….riiiiiiight

    What more can be said about Oprah Winfrey? This will be a huge ratings bonanza for her as she veers off into the next segment of her useless life, forming her own network. She doesn’t care about these kids, or their aging grandparents and never did care for their father Michael one bit. Isn’t there supposed to be some kind of ongoing investigation into the death of Michael? Or has everyone forgot what happened to him 16 months ago?
