To most people, there has been so much evidence now of Jackson’s predilection for young boys, it beggars belief that some rational, thoughtful people are still on the fence regarding his guilt.Even though we know that Jackson entertained different boys for at least 850 or more nights, owned books featuring photos of naked young boys, and paid a lot of money to boys who accused him of molestation, once we take into account the Halo Effect, it is easy for some to have residual doubts about whether Jackson is guilty or not.
Conrad Murray 60 Minutes interview When presenter Liz Hayes asks Conrad Murray, “Do you think he was a paedophile?
No, that would, if anything, bolster Jackson’s reputation.
The only conclusion is that yes, Murray thinks (because of things he had seen or encountered) Jackson is a pedophile, but isn’t prepared to talk about it at this time. Jackson defenders insist that Murray doesn’t believe Jackson was a pedophile (or at best didn’t know Jackson well enough to say one way or another) and is deliberately leaving the issue hanging in the hope of gaining more money for new interviews or a book deal.

Some were high profile, others less so, but all add to the massive, undeniable jigsaw of Jackson behaviour that shows he could not have been anything but a pedophile.
