    I know this is going to spark another debate about addictions however it is really sickening how delusional Howard is. He opened the interview talking about how he couldn't understand how AEG is responsible for Michael Jackson's death, it is really fucking disgusting. He really doesn't see how he has enabled Richard and on a much larger level Howard enabled Artie and K.C. to almost commit suicide more than once. I am not saying Howard is completely at fault because the person addicted to whatever is ultimately responsible for whatever but when they are in the main stages of addiction there is no way the person can make any sort of responsible decision without trying to fuel their addiction. Artie was often rewarded for his heroin addiction by having it talked about openly on air. Many of you who have never been addicted to anything will not understand this but the second Howard and the rest of the gang(Artie's employer) talked about it or let Artie talk about it with no repercussions they sealed his fate. One of the saving graces when people are addicted to whatever is that they usually need to hide it, by Howard talking about it openly with Artie on air that completely took away whatever guilt Artie had about using. The same went for K.C. and Richard for that matter, hell look at the way Howard,Gary and Robin just laughed at Richard during the Dr. Drew interview.

    I agree that Michael Jackson is responsible for Michael Jackson.

    AEG, however, was stupid. Incredibly stupid. They've got the entire world's best known entertainer. And he's hooked on drugs. Rather than pressing him to meet his commitments, they should've recognized how fucking damaged he was, tossed his ass (demanded he toss his own ass) into a rehab and get some help.

    Instead, they let him kill himself and fucked themselves out of a shitload of money they could've made off him.

    Stupid.

    Artie Fucking Lange is a far cry from the veritable GOLD MINE that was Michael Jackson.

    It made far more sense for them to threaten him with a contract breach if he didn't get help.

    Stupid, stupid, stupid.

    They(AEG) were blinded by the $$$$. If they threatened MJ with a contract breach and he went into rehab they would have to postpone the world tour indefinitely. I think Jackson's whole family is just as guilty as the Doctor who administered the propofol.

    You responded to a fucking picture and are worried about paragraphs? The fucking losers here are unreal, maybe I should just post it sentence by sentence so your minuscule brain actually has a chance to compute what is being said. This is a message board where most of these idiots post pictures, emoticons and constantly misuse punctuation. Get a life.

    What the fuck is with you people when it comes to personal responsibility?
    Unless aig was GIVING him the drugs, it's MJ's own problem.
    And when it comes to the Howard/ Artie sitch, he's even LESS culpable than aig was. Now I don't agree with making his addiction an on-air joke, but Howard isn't responsible at all for his spiral.

    Yeah, but at the end of the day, isn't "indefinitely" infinitely better than "never?"

    Dude? There's something to be said for readability and writing such a long post without a paragraph break causes the reader to just gloss over all the words and skip it.

    Internet writing is different than any other form of writing in that, paragraph breaks aren't where they would be in academia. If a paragraph has more than two sentences, break the paragraph.

    Seriously. People will not read a paragraph that long. Sorry if the TL;DR posts offended you.

    No kidding. Of course it was MJ's responsibility but AIG missed the forest for the trees by turning a blind eye to the mess that was his life.

    I'm not saying that makes them (AIG) responsible (in anyway) for his death; it was just fucking stupid business.
