Murray was convicted of the involuntary manslaughter of Jackson on Monday and is waiting in jail for his sentencing on November 29. He could face four years behind bars.
The doctor taped an interview with NBC's Today prior to the verdict, wherein he insisted that he is not to blame for Jackson's death.
Murray was asked by journalist Savannah Guthrie if he can understand why many of Jackson's fans hold him responsible for the popstar's passing.
"I loved Michael too. I'm as much a fan as any of the others," Murray replied. "To be blamed for his death has not been an easy thing."
The physician was found guilty of having contributed to Jackson's death by administering a lethal dose of the powerful anaesthetic propofol in the singer's final moments.
Murray insisted that he was not the doctor who put Jackson on propofol and added that he was even trying to wean Jackson off the drug in the months prior to his death.
"I met Michael with propofol. This was not something I introduced to Michael," Murray commented.
He went on to say: "I think propofol is not recommended to be given in the home setting, but it is not contraindicated… I look at my condition with Michael - not about giving [him propofol], but trying to find a method to take away something from him that I felt he should not have been using on his own."
Murray acknowledged that he should have resigned as Jackson's doctor in the months prior to Jackson's death. The doctor says he kept the position so as not to "abandon his friend" Jackson, who he described as "desperate" and "deceptive" at points during the interview.
Murray will share more about his relationship with Jackson in the documentary Michael Jackson and The Doctor, which airs on Friday, November 11 at 10pm ET on MSNBC in the US and in the UK on Channel 4 next week.
Michael's brother Jermaine Jackson has registered his anger over Murray's television documentary, commenting: "He had a chance to stand up, he is a coward, he is a liar. He didn't stand up in court and plus this had to be for money because he must have been paid big to do this."
Jermaine has also insisted that Murray deserves a harsher prison sentence than a possible four years behind bars.
