All Jackson, All Morning…Almost

The morning shows put it in high gear today on the Michael Jackson coverage.

Lauer_7.2.jpg• On NBC, Matt Lauer talked with Jermaine Jackson, his first intreview since his brother’s death. Lauer also gave viewers a live tour inside the unfurnished Neverland Ranch – from the enormous kitchen and dining room to Jackson’s two-story bedroom, including the secret closet inside his closet which had three locks on it. “I’m not sure what he kept in there, but clearly he didn’t want many people to know that it existed,” said Lauer.

The video was licensed from Byron Allen‘s Entertainment Studios for an undisclosed price.
