[Audio] Carson Daly: Michael Jackson Trial Gets Underway, Prosecution Releases Disturbing Audio

[photogallerylink id=106533]

More than 2 years after the death of [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Michael Jackson[/lastfm], his manslaughter trial finally began here in Los Angeles.

From the get-go, you can tell this is going to be a knock-down, drag-out case.

The prosecution got things off to a shocking start, playing an audio clip of an allegedly heavily-sedated MJ.

Lawyers for the prosecution are trying to prove that Dr. Conrad Murray was reckless in providing dangerous drugs like Propofol to the pop singer.

The defense is arguing, rather, that [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Michael Jackson[/lastfm] self-administered the lethal dose while Murray was out of the room.

But the most alarming revelation of yesterday’s proceedings was an audio clip of Michael talking about his This Is It tour.

Warning: The following audio is disturbing to hear.

The singer is barely intelligible and prosecution provided a transcript of what he said:

We have to be phenomenal. When people leave this show, when people leave my show, I want them to say, `I’ve never seen nothing like this in my life. Go. Go. I’ve never seen nothing like this. Go. It’s amazing. He’s the greatest entertainer in the world. I’m taking that money, a million children, children’s hospital, the biggest in the world, Michael Jackson’s Children’s Hospital…”

Furthermore, the prosecution also showed the jury photos of MJ on a gurney after he had already died.

Testimony continues today with more witnesses taking the stand.

    gTo The ProsecutionTeam: STOP NOW….YOU’RE GOING TOO FAR. YOU’VE WON, DON’T PUSH IT. I can see the frustration on the Defense team, doing all they can to catch someone in not doing their homework when it was Murrey who didn’t do his……………and his lies OMG
    ON THE 2+ HOUR INTERVIEW BY THE POLICE. Present the ‘suit’ that’s against Murrey
    by the doctor in the interview for defermation of character…..play MJ’s last strung out tape and STOP One thing that worries me is that since the jury isn’t sequested and they are out in the street watching all those praying for Murry seeing all that’s going on might hurt the jury’s opinion.. The Defense white haired walking into the court house when someone shoved a mike in his face asking “how do U like hearing that tape of MJ and he answered “thats what happens when the doctor isn’t taking care of his patient.”! THEN THE GAG ORDER.YOU GUYS WERE WONDERFUL.you are so efficient and knowledge. Don’t let that black indian get away with murder. OJ did once in that same building but I pray for your
    completing this trial in a winning manner unless defense attorneys. Although MJ had a drug problem he was the world’s best entertainer and no one attempted to reach out to him and help him………………………but you.
