7:02 am
dr. conrad murray in a moment. >> reporter: it was an unequivocal win for concert promoters aeg live. jurors say they hired dr. murray. to the second question, was murray on fit or incompetent at the fire aeg hired him? the answer is no. and the case of damages for the jackson family ended. >> the jury said aeg wasn't responsible. >> reporter: the verdict was a clear win for aeg. despite the wording of the second question it was nothing close for vindication to dr. murray as the jurors made clear. said murray was competent in what he was hired for.

7:04 am
dr. murray, good morning to you. >> good morning, matt. >> i want to know what was your reaction. i know you were watching the verdict on tv live as it was handed down. what was your immediate reaction? >> my immediate reaction was one of tears. certainly i cried. but i cried only because i'm not taking sides in this matter, first of all, let me make that clear. i cried because for once the world was allowed to hear some of the facts as it pertained to this matter. a lot of fans that had been suppressed, much of i was denied and my attorneys could not present, i was not given a fair chance to defend myself nor were they given the opportunity to defend me based upon the rulings of the court.
7:05 am
i was very relieved that at least the world had a chance of hearing some of the facts. >> you said you were relieved. did you feel at all vindicated, dr. murray? >> i have felt that the lord has always been with me. and i believe that this was part of my recognition that you have to wait. you have to know that he is there for you and he is going to do his justice. >> did you continue watching after the verdict? did you see the press conference where members of the jury came out? one said that you quote did something that you shouldn't have done and that you were, quote, unethical. did you hear that?
7:06 am
and how did you react to it? >> i think what the juror said is that if ethics were the issue the conclusion may be different. this is not about ethics. this was about the jackson's bringing a lawsuit which i felt from the beginning was frivolous. the very lawsuit that indicated that something was done. and a lot of claims were incorrect. i knew that for a fact. this is not about ethics. that is about a lawsuit that was frivolous and the jury should keep comments as they were confined. when you say i am unethical that is speculation on his part because he has not heard the other side of the case. >> hang on for one second. anything that happened in this trial going to impact your
7:07 am
ability to appeal the involuntary manslaughter conviction that dr. murray has on his record? >> it won't effect the appeal at all. >> let me go back to you. you are going to be released from jail in a matter of weeks. you can't practice medicine right now because your license has been revoked or suspended. what do you plan to do? >> my license is not revoked, first of all. first of all, when i get out of jail i want to be able to embrace my children. i want to be able to reunite with my family and close friends and all of the angels that have been placed in my life that have given me support and encouraged me through this whole process. i will reset my life and i will show the world that despite
