LAS VEGAS, Nov. 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Jack Wishna, Founder and CEO of rockcityclub.com, and a friend of Michael Jackson, joins the Jackson Estate in calling for NBC Universal to cancel the airing of "Michael Jackson and the Doctor - A Fatal Friendship" set to air Friday, November 11, 2011. Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in the death of the pop star this week, and Jack Wishna wrote in a letter to MSNBC that the documentary is an attempt to glorify the actions of Murray and is giving Murray, a convicted felon, a platform that he refused to take in a court of law.
Friends for over a decade, Jack Wishna and Michael Jackson also worked together to help develop new musical talent. It was Wishna who convinced Michael to return to America after 18 months in exile, moved him to Las Vegas, Nevada, and worked with him to create the "biggest comeback in the history of entertainment" along with the programs that eventually would become rockcityclub.com, the creator of the first Social Music Network. This collaboration of Michael Jackson and Jack Wishna continues to help many aspiring musicians and artists that come through the rockcityclub.com platform.
"Michael was a very caring and trusting human being and it is horrible how Conrad Murray took advantage of Michael for his own gain, and did not care enough about him to help him through his pain. And now NBC is giving Murray a reward by focusing a show on his opinions and views and having him further tarnish the image of a great talent, human being and humanitarian," said Wishna.
"It is our hope that NBC Universal and MSNBC will show compassion to Michael Jackson's family, his loyal fans, and the many real friends Michael had and reverse their decision to air this unnecessary documentary," added Wishna.
