I consider myself to be a mother and a grandmother yet I never was able to have children of my own. Therefore, I am trying to understand the importance of " Who are the biological parents of Micheal Jackson's children." I may have misunderstood the definition of a parent. Is it not to love,teach,and protect? He was clearly a parent.
Michael Jackson, rest in peace everything will be alright........ will always love you
Let the man rest in peace.
Good Evening Mr. Cooper,
The sensationalism and obsession of the media whether Michael Jackson is/isn't the biological father to HIS children is irrelevant and really NONE of anyone's business!!!! Biology does not make a father, if you're not sure of this, then ask all the children who have been adopted or been in foster care and have a loving relationship with their families. Let us all remember the legacy Mr. Jackson has gifted the world and honor his memory!!!
Neverending questions surfacing from tonights show but the woman with the baby squirrel in her bosom has got to top it all!
Glad AC is in LA covering the MJ developments! Thanks for all the updated info. tonight!
Some squirrels just have better lives than others I guess.
Good night, Anderson
Thanks for reporting from LA today and bring us so many news! Your show is truly amazing and addictive! 🙂
Good night David (Indiana), friends, everyone!
Good rest and see you tomorrow!!!!!!!!!!!!
Very squirrel-ly? :0
Good Night all.......
I think I'd be afraid of being bitten by that baby squirrel. Good night everyone. And Anderson, good job this morning not dancing for Kelly no matter how strong the pressure was.
she is a nurse to the stars, I would not use her to tie my shoes. Also you can rest assured that no other celebrity will call her because she cant keep her mouth shut. Well, she better find another profession.
What I really don't understand is, wouldn't the Dr have wanted to get paramedics to Michael immediately as they have portable electrical paddles to try to get his heart started if he though it was cardiac arrest?
Anderson — If you “hate reporting on children” — why are you doing it?
Too many stories at this time — wish all the press would leave this “story” alone, let the legal proceedings happen and then report on the results — rather than reporting on the “what ifs.”
I truly hope the children are protected and able to go on and live happy, productive lives.
I feel sorry for that squirrel
The dancers were great, they should put on a Tribute show for the ticket holders honoring Michael Jackson using some of the Music Talents from around the world.
I have never believed that Michael is the father of the children. I am now starting to question whether Debbie is the mother, or just a surrogate to these kids. No amount of money could let me give up my own blood.
Bye Anderson and Erica
Have a good evening and may God bless the Jackson's children.
It's very sad to hear all the things those people are talking about MJ, now. What terrifies me is the fact that they are now respecting the children. Do those people want to destroy their lives? How can they live with this doubt now? It's cruel. They should think about them and try to preserve them through this momment. No matter who their natural father is. MJ was up to now and will always be their father. Thanks.
DOESNT MATTER if Michael Jackson adopted, used a seregant, used artifical insemination, whatever, doestn matter....those children were BORN into Michael Jacksons family...and they were BORN as their father being Mr. Michael Jackson. Why even talk about that....doesn't matter. really. He is the only father they know...or will no.
Plus, that is the LAST thing three kids that just lost THEIR father need to be hearing.
Thank you again for all the MJ coverage.There are people who want to see it.Goodnight everyone.Peace to all of you and yours.
Great report and sentiment by Tom Foreman.
Good night Anderson, Erica & Team 360.
Good night fellow bloggers.
At the end of the MJ circus we (family & friends) hope that he wil be remembered for all of the good that he did and the profound effect that he had in music, dance, and peace & love.
This is disgusting .... lol ....
That squirrel shot was nauseating!
Makes one wonder why the doctor was on the scene so fast when Michael wasn't breathing. Could it be he was in that room monitoring MJ's sleep?
What is this?
A small mouse? hahahaha......
I understand why we are pulling back combat troops from Iraq's large cities, but on the same hand I'm really worried. Is it safe yet?? Will it ever be?
"No Way..No How" Palin beats Obama in a footrace of any distance.
I don't trust the Jackson lawyers.
I think they are taking this paternity issue too far now! Since Michael's name is on the birth certificate, it doesn't matter if there was a sperm donor or not. Being a donor doesn't give you parental rights. I think it would be wrong to reveal something to his children that he didn't even tell them himself. It's not fair to make these kids suffer any more than they already have just to satisfy the curiosity of the public. These are innocent children's lives.
The news in Iraq is the best I've heard in quite some time. Each of those 4300 souls was a real person, not just a number. This is so bittersweet for those of us who lost people we loved during this conflict.
I wish Michael could have seen how much the world cares about him. I hope he has peace now.
Finaly Americans troops are going to be leaving Iraq! Too bad its until 2011!
I think we should all be remembering a great entertainer and not the negative thing's that are and have been said. I my opinion michael is and alway's will be the greatest. I am hart broken that he is gone.
Good to see you on this side of the world again. Just tuned in and will have to catch up during the second hour. Looks like more breaking news envolving the nurses story. Glad to see the Governor trying to work things out after so many years of marriage and 4 sons later. Have a good evening Erica and Anderson.
Just watched the supposed to be dancers for MJ, it's just unfortunate that it didn't happen for them. So as Charice, Oprah's child protege she's suppose to also dance and sing with MJ on his upcoming tour.
this is so sad i just wnt 2 cry
Great show Anderson, I'll be back tomorrow nite for more!!!
Michael will be missed. Feel so bad for those children :((
Why is Joe Jackson choosing to promote a record company. I guess he is getting ready for a big fat zero when the will is read. What artist would want to be repersented by him. I would think any member of the former Jackson 5 would have better chance of starting a record company. Joe needs to live a quiet life on a budget.
I hope the Iraqies can handle it....it is about time they have sovereignty.
I was raised by my great aunt and her husband they where more my parents, then my biological parents.
@ Melinda: Thank you for your comments. For those of us who are adopted and don't know our biological "sperm donors" we don't refer to them as our "Daddies." The only "Daddy" I knew was the man that adopted and loved me until his death.
Sanford did one good thing, announcing his affair a day before Michael's death....he's pretty much forgotten. 😀
Thanks for the report tonight! It has been REAL! Love all you guys!
have a nice evening! XO
A next point: Dr. Murray's attorney said that he "met Michael Jackson unresponsive but, had a pulse." Every medical professional knows that if a patient has a pulse but not breathing rescue breaths should be preformed not CPR.
I have serious doubts regarding statements made by nurse Lee. As an ICU nurse who regularly administers Diprivan to intubated patients, her comments just don't add up. In addition, I don't know of any nurse who uses the outdated PDR (physician desk reference)...sounds like someone wants 15 minutes of fame at Mr. Jackson's expense
I read Candy Crowly's story on Gov. Sanderson,it was great.
He "trying to fall back in love with his wife.." give me a break!
Please please please re-play the MJ concert auditions. Amazing!
