>> Jon: WELCOME BACK.

I DON'T KNOW IF YOU HEARD BUT A

MONTH AGO AN ENTERTAINMENT BY

THE NAME MICHAEL JACKSON PASSED

AWAY.

THERE WAS SOME REPORTING ON IT.

I BELIEVE THE PARIS REVIEW HAD A

NICE OBIT AND THE BBC FILED A

REPORT.

BUT WE CAME ACROSS A MICHAEL

JACKSON STORY ON "GOOD MORNING

AMERICA."

I KNOW WE CUT TOGETHER MONTAGES

FROM DIFFERENT NETWORKS TO SHOW

OTHER THINGS THAT ARE HAPPENING

BUT THIS ONE "GOOD MORNING

AMERICA" STORY A FEW WEEKS AFTER

HIS DEATH JUST HAD EVERYTHING

YOU COULD EVER WANT FROM A TV

NEWS STORY.

WE THOUGHT LET'S NOT TRY TO

IMPROVE IT.

LET'S JUST PLAY IT SO THAT YOU

AT HOME COULD EXPERIENCE THE JOY

WE FELT WHEN WE WATCHED IT FOR

THE FIRST TIME.

LET ME GET IT UP ON MY TiVo.

HOLD ON.

GET IT UP THERE.

JON, YOU ARE CRAZY TO LEAVE A

GREAT WOMAN LIKE THAT.

ALL RIGHT.

THURSDAY, 7:08 IN THE MORNING,

"GOOD MORNING AMERICA" GIVES YOU

THIS:

AFTER DAYS OF SPECULATION, A

SOURCE CLOSE TO THE JACKSON

FAMILY TELLS ABC NEWS THAT THE

KING OF POP'S BODY IS CURRENTLY

IN THIS CEMETERY.

>> Jon: THE LEAD OF THIS STORY

IS THAT TWO AND A HALF WEEKS

AFTER MICHAEL JACKSON'S DEATH

HIS CORPSE IS IN A CEMETERY.

[ LAUGHTER ]

>> THIS WAS A VERY UNUSUAL

NOTATION ON A DEATH CERTIFICATE.

HE IS A TEMPORARY VAULT HERE.

WE'RE CERTAIN OF IT.

>> CELEBRITY EXPERT STEVE

GOLDSTEIN BELIEVES --

[ LAUGHTER ]

>> Jon: CELEBRITY GRAVE EXPERT

STEVE GOLDSTEIN.

IF THAT IS NOT THE TITLE OF ROB

SNYDER'S -- SNYDER'S NEXT MOVIE,

GRAVE EXPERT GOES HOLLYWOOD.

[HUMMING]

[ LAUGHTER ]

SO THE MYSTERY OF MICHAEL

JACKSON'S LOST CORPSE SOLVED.

TIME TO TAKE US DEEPER WITH A

PRODUCTION TRICK.

>> AS FOR THE ONGOING

INVESTIGATION INTO WHAT KILLED

JACKSON QUESTIONS CONTINUE TO

SWIRL.

>> Jon: OH, MY GOD MICHAEL'S

KILLER IS IN THAT BAG.

OR THAT IS THAT GUY'S LAUNDRY.

ALL I KNOW IS LOOK AT THAT BAG.

[ LAUGHTER ]

THE BAG, OF COURSE, PROPERTY OF

THE MAD GENIUS AT THE CENTER OF

THIS MYSTERY.

>> MICHAEL'S DERMATOLOGIST.

>> I DIDN'T GIVE HIM THE CRAP

THEY TALK B. I HAVE NEVER

PRESCRIBED OXYCONTIN IN MY LIFE.

HOW CAN I PRESCRIBE DIPROVIN

WHEN I DON'T KNOW HOW TO USE IT.

>> Jon: DON'T BLAME ME, I'M

JUST IN CHARGE OF MICHAEL'S

SKIN.

WHAT DID I DO?

OH, NO.

SOMETHING TELLS ME THAT GUY IS

ALSO A LAWYER AND A REAL ESTATE

AGENT.

WHAT ELSE COULD YOU POSSIBLY

WANT TO KNOW IN ONE MICHAEL

JACKSON STORY?

HOW ABOUT THIS?

GOLDSTEIN HAS BEEN TO THE CRYPT

AND TOOK THESE PHOTOS.

>> Jon: EEW.

OR THIS.

>> JOE JACKSON AND GERMANE

DOCTOR JERMAINE JACKSON WANT THE

BODY BURIED ATE NEVERLAND.

HIS MOTHER DOES NOT.

>> Jon: SHE WOULD LIKE TO SELL

THE BONES TO THE ELEPHANT MAN'S

FAMILY.

PAYINTAK A BITCH.

>> A PORTION OF THE BRAIN

REMAINS AT THE L.A. CORONER'S

OFFICE.

[ LAUGHTER ]

ONE THING IS FOR SURE, JACKSON

WILL BE BURIED WITH A WHITE

GLOVE.

[ LAUGHTER ]

>> Jon: I THINK IT'S BARELY

POSSIBLE WE'VE HAD ENOUGH

MICHAEL JACKSON DEATH COVERAGE.

THAT'S A GOOD THING.

YOU KNOW, IT'S INTERESTING WHO

ELSE BELIEVES THAT THERE'S BEEN

TOO MUCH MICHAEL JACKSON DEATH

COVERAGE.

YOU ARE NOT GOING TO BELIEVE IT.

>> WHAT ABOUT THE WALL-TO-WALL

COVERAGE OF M.J. SINCE HIS DEATH

FURTHER FUELING THE FLAMES OVER

WHAT HAS BECOME A NATIONAL

DEBATE ABOUT WHETHER THE MEDIA

HAS SPENT TOO MUCH TIME COVERING

MICHAEL JACKSON'S DEATH.

>> Jon: THE BEAST HAS BECOME

SELF AWARE.

LET'S CHASE IT TO THE WINDMILL

AND BURN IT.

HOW SELF-AWARE CAN YOU BE WHEN

THIS IS HOW YOU END THE PIECE.

>> WHERE DID HE WEAR THAT?

WAS IT LUPUS?

WAS HE REALLY TRYING TO HIDE A

DISEASE?

THAT IS COMING UP IN THE NEXT

HALF HOUR.
