Dr. Murray's patients weigh in on license hearing

(CNN) – The doctor accused of having a role in Michael Jackson's death is fighting to keep his medical license again in court today. In this AM original report, a much different opinion of Doctor Conrad Murray emerges. Our Ted Rowlands talks to patients who say Dr. Murray deserves praise, not persecution.

    The context written in some of the comments above are obvious rants about there beloved star. The sad facts will come out in the trial and then it will be interesting to here these people and their reactions. Many a professional person continue to put there trust in Dr. Murrays care. They love him and will swear by his bedside care and manners. The CNN news clip as shown on June 14, 2010 did nothing to show the real admiration of Dr. Murray. The clinic was jammed with people, yet they mannaged to only show a couple of truncated interviews. I was there and one of many who took out part of there day to take this shamm of an interview. We all wanted to be heard and try to let the world know about Dr. Murrays love for patience and medical practice.

    What do Murray's patients' opinions of him have to do with this case? Question: Where are the doctor's peers speaking out for him? Answer: there are no doctors out there that would defend this quack's actions. He acted in an egregious manner. No one in the medical profession would defend this man's actions, no one with ethics that is.

    I find the mainstream media's handling of this story to be completely biased in favor of the quack's actions.

    There is something clearly wrong with this picture. The journalists reporting on this case should be ashamed that they have allowed their personal opinions to skew their reportage of this case.

    Behind Dr Conrad all the way!! God bless and protect him!!! The Jackson's should blame themselves for not doing nearly enough. MUCH more could of been done. They are just trying to make themselves feel better by blaming a good Doctor and man. Perhaps going PUBLIC with the fact Mike had a drug problem would of SAVED his life (rehab clinic) but oh no they couldnt do that right? It ruins his image doesnt it? They say they are private, I say thats a nice way of covering up pride. Mike needed help, they knew it, no one else did and they didnt do nearly enough. I hope Mike is in a better place surrounded by people who REALLY love him.

    Why is Ted Rowland and CNN wasting time w/Dr. Death's patients'
    opinions. Who cares what they have to say-it is irrelevent to the issue.
    In case you have forgotten what the issue is let me remind you. This
    greedy, creepy, dirty-so called Dr.-gave (M.J.) this man an addictive,
    dangerous drug that is not to be used outside a hospital-at his home
    (M.J.'S home), he could see that he was frail and not healthy, yet he
    continued to give it to him anyway-because he took advantage of the situation. Just like drug dealers do. A REAL Dr. does not do that. A REAL human being does not do that . He wasn't a successful Dr.
    or man. So, he did the unthinkable and bargained a persons life in
    exchange for money due to his own shortcomings. So, please when
    has the media cared about the other side-when you should you don't
    so don't start now. Stop making it seem like he's a saint -he's scum.
    He did it, everybody knows he did it, the death certificate says he did it.

    No matter what Dr. M's patients think of him, he violated his oath and his actions resulted in the death of a patient, period. He should lose his license in each state. What would these "patients" of his think if his actions resulted in the death of one of their own? As Michael said, they will do anything for money.

    Wonder how much all these people are being paid to support Murray? You know they are not doing this because they love this man so much. I haven't seen such utter disregard for a human being in my life! If the shoe was on the other foot and any of these "patients" had a loved one whose life was taken due to Murray's negligence, they sure would be fighting for justice as well. This is a truly sad day! 🙁
