Kurt Loder thinks Michael Jackson was a child molester
Leave it to longtime MTV News anchor Kurt Loder to have an opinion on the manslaughter conviction of Dr. Conrad Murray, saying he believes the late Michael Jackson was a child molester. Because you can't slander the dead, you see. That's Communications Law 101.
Loder showed up on the Jeff and Jeremy in the Morning radio show on KZOZ from San Luis Obispo, Calif., on Tuesday, TMZ reports, and was asked if he thought Jackson's death was a tragedy. That prompted the interesting response from Loder: "Its a shame how he grew up. His childhood was a shame. There is many sad aspects to his life. On the other hand, I think he was a child molester, and that sort of tempers any feelings you might have about him."
Of course the hosts had to ask why he thought that, so Loder said he had heard the stories about MJ's alleged secret payouts to molested boys' parents and how Jackson like to have boys sleep over at his house. Oh, and the fact that MJ was a freak show.
"Having sleepovers with little boys, and you're a 40 year old man? Uh, no. You're like a child molester," Loder said (listen to it here). "Maybe being a child molester is the product of a pretty terrible childhood he had. You can see why that might have happened. On the other hand, molesting children is bad."
Wow, that is certainly stating the obvious. It's all a moot point these days, however, so maybe Kurt has some dirt on Penn State football coach Joe Paterno he'd like to share.
