Over the weekend Conrad Murray gave an interview to 60 Minutes Australia and when they asked him point blank if he thought Michael Jackson was a pedophile Conrad Murray refused to answer the question...
From The Daily Mail
When Channel Nine presenter Liz Hayes asked, 'Do you think he was a paedophile?' he dramatically paused for 15 seconds before revealing: 'I’m not prepared to answer that question, not now. And I tell you the reason why – because my interview with you is candid and honest, and I will not make up or fabricate anything.'
Hayes pressed: 'As a friend, someone that was his closest friend, I would have expected you to say "absolutely not".' 'Well, sometimes expectations are not always satisfied,' Murray admitted. 'One thing I will tell you is this: I may have formed an impression of an individual based upon certain things I have seen or encountered.'
Undeterred, Hayes pushed: 'The reason I’m pressing you is because by saying what you’re saying, you are deliberately muddying the waters here, because that’s what you’re doing - you’re leaving it unclear about your thoughts. Is that fair to Michael Jackson or do you have something that you know?'
Carefully, the 60-year-old admitted, 'I’ll never be unfair to Michael and I’m not here to destroy Michael. You asked a question and I’m not prepared to answer - not now.'
