We just happened to come across this cover of The National Enquirer dated January 12, 2009. Note that in the upper right hand corner the headline says “Michael Jackson – Six Months to Live!” Nobody paid much attention to that prediction until Michael’s death on June 25, 2009 – slightly less than SIX MONTHS later! They were RIGHT! You have to give The Enquirer credit where credit is due.

    i am pretty sure everyone has heard over the years that the NE gets pretty much a LOT of stuff RIGHT…
    as insane as it may sound I really believe someone or a lot of someones murdered MJ…… still a great loss. Call him a freak all you want to
    there will never be another MJ. A huge loss and talent.

    The National Enquirer is the only tabloid that I believe. I believe that MJ knew he was a ticking time bomb, which would mean they are prosecuting an innocent man. I really don’t think Dr Murray is responsible, as sad as it was and still is. You don’t see drug dealers being prosecuted when junkies OD. A Junkie is a Junkie and MJ WAS a Junkie, plain and simple. MJ had a choice whether he wanted to be medicated or not. He made the wrong choices for whatever reasons he had. Very sad!!

    MJ had many problems, but whatever happened to the doctor’s oath to “first do no harm”. Dr. Murray gave him access to drugs, and he was, I believe, complicit in his death. Murder, no. Involuntary manslaughter, absolutely. Oh, and damn, what an awful cover Janet.

    The fact that Murry is a doctor and not a drug dealer makes a world of difference imo. Voluntary and willful medical malpractice by a licensed professional resulting in the death of a patient is inexcusable.

    C’mon, Janet.. Once the rumors had begun to swirl that MJ had a substance abuse issue, every gossip rag and blog in the business was making similar predictions on a regular basis. It was inevitable that SOMEONE was going to guess correctly.

    Enquirer calls out everybody, Dems, Repubs, Libs, Conservs, gays, straights, cellulites and non cellulites.

    Enquirer rocks.

    Yep,,,it spoke of the Yiddish Rachel Uchitel and her puffed lips and black Tiger Woods before others as well.

    Rick, you are dead on. Denise too. The oath Dr’s take IS to “do no harm”. The medication used that CARDIOLOGIST had no business administering as he was not an anesthesiologist and MJ was for sure not being monitored while on it by machine for blood pressure, respirations, pulse, oxygen levels, etc which is only done in hospital when this drug is used. They do NOT leave a person (under this med’s) side and must be present at all times until the person is brought out of it and the medication drip is turned off. THEN you are monitored in a recovery room!

    MJ for all intents and purposes, might just as well have been laying on a work table in a garage for all the care and consideration he received from this “Dr.” It’s negligent homicide thru and thru.

    The Dudette is correct. The National Enquirer has even been honored by the FBI/CIA in finding out things before they can. The Enquirer does not have to make up stories….in the olden days maybe, but now with high-tech doodads, there are spies everywhere and they are highly paid to get the facts right.

    Those bodies look like the typical bodies I see at the pool. Actually, better than some I see at my pool. lol

    yep, no doubt any longer.
    ……THEY DID IT, folks!!

    Whatever oath this doctor may have taken, he didn’t even know how to PERFORM CPR(!!), as revealed in his prelim hearing.

    That said, it was clear that Dr. Murray was hired as MJ’s “Dr. Feelgood”—he was his drug pusher, nothing more.

    But the concert promoters who hired Murray—and who were well aware of MJ’s longstanding, serious drug use—made damn sure they were insured up the wazoo “just in case” MJ couldn’t perform. (Remember when they added all those dates, what, 50 or so of them, that Michael claimed later he knew nothing about?)

    Huh. They must have gotten good advice about insurance payouts from LARRY SILVERSTEIN (look him up).

    As for Michael, what a sad ending. But all you have to do is look at his booking photo from the second molestation circus. He was done THEN. And he knew it. :(

    A better memory. Listen to him sing the old Bill Wither’s hit, “Ain’t No Sunshine.” Michael was all of TEN years old when he sang that. Like Garland, his vocal talent at an early age was other-worldly.

    The Enquirer has been right on a lot of things…OJ, John Edwards too….Im surprised when I hear people still laugh at it. Its a rag but is a good one.

    Yep they were sure right on Whitney Houston’s lesbianism and her frog voiced goofiness on tour. They also seem to be right on her daughter following in her footsteps as a lesbian.

    They were also right on Morgan Freeman and his new wife/granddaughter package.

    Give them a bit of credit on being correct.

    Michael Jackson really worked his ass off and was tired from all the stress and tention and worry and this man could not sleep and I don’t understand why he could not be massaged every day and every night and not sleeping for long periods of time takes a toll on his body and tention and worry.
