OneRose4MJJ Supports Open Letter to Media: Diane Dimond


Dear Worldwide Media,

       Michael Jackson's fans are more than displeased with your choice of the "expert" special commentator for the Jacksons v. AEG Live trial, Ms. Diane Dimond.  As you are aware, the duty of a journalist is to seek the truth by providing a fair and comprehensive account of an event or issue.  Professional integrity is the cornerstone of a journalist's credibility.

      Ms. Diamond's lack of professional integrity is precisely what has marred her credibility. Michael Jackson himself filed a lawsuit for $100 million against Diane Dimond, for releasing a story that the Los Angeles District Attorney was reopening the 1993 child molestation case after a sex tape was found involving Jackson and his accuser.  The DA immediately denied the story. The story was completely false.

    This is only one example of the clear bias Ms. Dimond holds against Michael Jackson.  As you are well aware, journalists are not required to report their own opinion, but rather to report the truth to the public.  Over a span of 20 years, Ms. Dimond has ridden on the coattails of Mr. Jackson, in the name of "fair and truthful" journalism.  Nothing could be further from the truth. Even in 2012, three years after Jackson's death, when Jerry Sandusky was convicted of multiple child molestation counts, Ms. Dimond again refers to Michael Jackson as a pedophile, although he was acquitted of all charges.

      We, the below signed Michael Jackson fans, respectfully request that only fair, unbiased and credible journalists are allowed to qualify as special commentators on the Jacksons v. AEG Live trial on CNN.  If you continue to use Diane Dimond as an "expert" on Michael Jackson, we plan on boycotting CNN, resulting in the loss of millions in viewership and subsequent advertising dollars.
 
Sincerely,

OneRose4MJJ

    1. I agree with Rev. Gross in reference to Ms. Diamonds creditionals. I have noticed several news casters especially Jane V. Mitchell also associating Michael's case along side the Arias trial when Travis was a supposed child molester. I find myself being a bit disturbed that HLN in allowing this type of reporting to be done. Michael was not a child molester and it was proven so by a jury of his peers. If the jury finds him "not guilty", then what is up with these so called expert news casters aka Diane Diamond who is still bigoted to the false allegations? Lets report the truth CNN/HLN.

  2. This is such a slap in the face to the Family as well as to Michael Jackson Community.... A women (Dianne Dimond) who deemed him guilty, even though Michael was acquitted of all charges? How could CNN belittle themselves to even stoop to this? ....I for one will be boycotting CNN if this form of journalism continues...She must be removed from covering Jacksons vs. AEG Live Trial, as she is biased, and has already deemed Michael's guilt in the last trial...CNN..what were you thinking? Ratings...
    We are demanding a fair reporter in this trial if the judge approves cameras...

  3. I completely agree and support One Rose for Michael J. Jackson. Diane Dimond is not a credible news journalist but an opportunistic liar who spreads slander about Michael Jackson to gain ratings. She built her entire so called 'career' bashing and spreading filth about MJ as if it were fact. I would think that after all these years, the fact that Michael Jackson was proven innocent on all charges and that many famous and close friends of MJ's have stepped forward since his death to speak openly about his high integrity and beautiful character that you would have chosed someone with a better reputation to report on this trial. Please just let the man rest in peace. The media has torn at his life enough. I would think that CNN would have enough integrity to hire a decent journalist to broadcast this trial. Beth Karas is a journalist of very high integrity and would be perfect to report the unbiased truth about this trial. Please immediately remove Diane Dimond and bring in Beth Karas in for this job.

  4. I completely agree and also support One Rose for MJJ. To use Diane Dimond as commentator for this just brings CNN down to her level of tabloid journalism and, IMHO, undermines the credibility of CNN as serious and respected journalism. I will for sure be boycotting and running campaigns to have other fans groups boycott CNN should this go forward. Bring in Beth Karas or Jen Hagear, Diane Dimond is a has been joke whose only claim to fame has been riding Michael Jacksons coattails to make a name for herself which she could not have done otherwise with her own credentials, she’s just a loser, a want to be, attention hog… Enough already!!!

  5. Seeing that they are planning to use that evil and heartless person makes my physically ill...I have no respect for that sorry excuse of a woman.I know we are to love and forgive I have a difficult time forgiving evil..I pray she is replaced and never works again...Her lies and hate for Michael is disgusting!!! The fans and family have a right to know the truth not Miss Diamonds version of the truth..

  6. Diamond Diamond is pure evil. Please for Michael's dignity, and out of respect for him, do NOT let her conduct this MJ crusifiction!! Which is exactly what it will be if you allow her go ahead with this.

  7. Diamond is not credible enough to work for you at all. You should just fire her for missconduct, the least you can do is take her off any story that has anything to do with the Jackson family.

  8. Mainstream journalism in the US is a joke... and people like Ms Dimond who continually pushes her own biased agenda on the public despite facts to the contrary, reveals the sad depths to which in the industry has sunken. It is all about ratings and the advertising dollar. Truth has little to do with it (or so it has seemed for a long time now, especially where Michael Jackson is concerned!) Shame, shame, shame CNN.

  9. For the most part, we know nothing about Diane Diamond except she surfaces only at the name of Michael Jackson. She otherwise has no credibility whatsoever. We do not even know about her upbringing! She has NO bio at all. Nevertheless, you bring this character to us as an item of truth!!! Diane Diamond is a liar, and all of you know it. I suppose its convenient to jump on the bandwagon.Ratings are ratings, right? It is time for you to get a new motto. "CNN the most trusted news....",is simply another lie. Shame on you for sinking to tabloid journalism...

  10. I completely concur with everything said in the above letter & comments. Through most of his life the gutter press has shown an unhealthy bias towards Michael. Since his death this does appear to be (slowly) improving with more articles featuring & promoting what Michael was really all about - his music, & less on the trash spread by the gutter press. However, it is at times like this, when we (his fans) are reminded how far we still have to go.

    Why should we really be surprised that CNN has chosen Ms Dimond - when there are a wealth of far more talented, informed & UNBIASED journalists around? No it is far easier to give the public what they want which is to be fed more lies, spins & untruths about Michael which is no doubt what this poor excuse for an educated woman will do, after all it is said her hatred of Michael arose after he spurned her advances!

    Come on CNN show some integrity!

  11. I agree with what this letter and what everybody else is saying. Diane Dimond has continued to spread lies about Michael and for CNN to choose her to report the trial was not the best choice. For years she had dragged Michael's name through the mud, and make him out to be a bad person which he wasn't. Please choose a different reporter to cover everything that you know will say the truth and not a bunch of made up lies.

  12. I totally agree with this letter. It's a disgrace and it's a BIG slap in the face to Michael! Of all people to choose, CNN chose Diane Dimond, a so-called reporter who was and remains obssessed with trashing Michael's name and was sued by Michael in the past for reporting lies. They need to choose another reporter, please. To choose her is a huge mistake and will tank the networks ratings even more and will tarnish CNN's reputation. Dimond is NOT a fair and balanced reporter. "Lies run sprints, but the truth runs marathons." -- Michael Jackson

    I watch CNN for most news,(Always liked CNN for some reason)...However, I have just learned of this latest news and I am shocked that CNN is choosing this so-called journalist to cover any case which surrounds/includes the name, Michael Jackson.

    Her reporting on this man has been far from fare/truthful... Which I had discovered over the last few years of research!

    If this is who CNN are choosing to cover this, then I will either be watching some other channel, or getting my updates via the Internet by
    others who are keeping up with the latest.

  14. I support this letter 100%, Ms Diamond should NOT be allowed to cover this in the simple fact for the last 20yrs or so she has non stop gone out of her way to try and tarnish Michael Jackson's name even though evidence has proven her wrong several times. This lady who has an opinion based on the fact that 1. She's known friends with certain people who tried to take Michael down and 2.Seems to only try aand get a name for herself by degrading Michael's name will effect your ratings, as many many people know she doesn not like to report facts and truth, rather so she likes to report what she wants in the hope people will dislike Michael. You will be making a very bad move if you let someone with a personal vendetta againt Michael Jackson report what goes on in the up and coming trial. It will be unfair on his family,friends,fans and everyone else who will be watching wanting to hear facts NOT own self opinion. CNN will also probably loose alot of ratings as people will switch to looking on the internet etc to be updated. Her status to you is of a reporter, well a reporter isnt one who is obsessed with trying to trash someones name when its been proved over and over the person is innoncent with EVIDENCE!! CNN you need to think again

  15. Shame on you CNN! You really are scraping the bottom of the barrel.
    A message to Diane Dimond. In this world there are facts and there are opinions. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion NOT their own facts!

  16. I will not be watching any CNN channels, until this travesty has been corrected. Of all the commentators to choose from, you all chose this biased, unprofessional. Wow, you guys have gone to the bottom of the pit!

  17. I am 110% in support of One Rose For Michael J. Jackson on this matter. If CNN continues with Diane DEMON D. CNN will be losing a far larger audience then they could ever imagine. PLEASE!! We are begging you to not let her cover the Jackson vs AEG cause she is bias. That's not the job that a good reporter is suppose to do.

  18. Wow! CNN lost their credibility as a newsworthy agency a long time ago, but this just solidifies their descent into the abyss. It's beyond comprehension how these so-called news organizations, who try to pretend they are about fair and truthful reporting, continue to repeatedly show how far from actual real journalism they are. People are entitled to their own opinions, NOT their own facts, and Diane Diamond has shown no mercy when it comes to her bias against Michael. Choosing Diane Diamon to cover the Jackson vs AEG trial is a blatant slap in the face to Michael, his family, and his millions of fans around the world, who will by the way, fight to the end to defend him. Journalism is dying in this country, and CNN is leading the way!

  22. Why don't you just leave him alone? Why are you never satisfied with all he's given? Ms Diane, if you were him, what would you do? He's tired of this system that sux! Don't mix in his problems. And if you continue with your lies, we, the fans around the world, will show you Who's Bad in this story. I've had enough of your lies. How about you know Jackson molested those kids? Were you there? Did you see? Can you prove us? Let him rest. God is the only one who can judge. Did He say you have this right? I got a doubt on this....

  23. Shame on you, Diane Dimond! Jackson never said anything about you. Who are you to put a stain on his name?

  24. I completely agree with all said in this letter. If CNN were interested in doing a responsible and fair job you wouldn't have hired Ms. Dimond to do that job. She's proven to be a liar and unprofessional and that reflects on you. Very disappointing from a reputable news network as yours.
    I support this open letter 100%

  27. Diane Dimond is all the evil that the media did to Michael during his lifetime.
    She distorts the truth, manipulate minds, she wants to make everything dirty concerns the life of Michael.
    His soul is corrupted by years of trying to destroy the image of a beautiful creature and as pure as that of Michael.
    We all have to fight to defend Michael, we are in debt forever with Michael, he gave all of himself to the world.

  28. Out of respect for Michael Jackson, his family,and the fans, I agree that Diane Dimond should not be representing the trial or have anything to do with ANY reporting on Michael Jackson. It is apparent with all she has written and said, that this woman mercilessly attacks Michael's character any chance she can. Michael Jackson has endured so many false accusations during his lifetime due to the media's wrongful portrayals and lies. It's time for the truth to be heard about this amazing man, gone too soon. He was one of the greatest entertainers the world has ever seen, not to mention, an amazing humanitarian, gentle and loving father, son, and brother. The only thing we should hear in regards to his name and memory is what a genius and how amazing he was!
    Please DO NOT let Diane Dimond even allow to breathe Michael Jackson's name, let alone speak it. She has been cruel and relentless with her nasty lies and unfathomable comments in regards to a man who didn't deserve it! It's painful enough for the family and fans to see all of this brought back up again for the Jackson/AEG trial.
    WE LOVE YOU, MICHAEL JOSEPH JACKSON ~ THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING! WE'LL NEVER FORGET!

  29. I agree with the letter & signing in protest of the person that made so many people in the world disbelieve the love & human side of Michael. Stop with the lies Diane Dimond. Michael loved children & animals because they loved unconditional.. As Jesus states in the Bible to be childlike & believe & help others. Michael was guilty for believing in the word of God?!?! How is this so cruel. Diane Dimond is self centered & has no compassion for his thoughts, his life on earth, his children's lives or any one other than her story to tarnish & sell filthy lies! Michael, how you held your head high in the cruelest of accusations Michael was found Not Guilty in a court of law! My gratitude, my love & support for Michael Jackson the man, the musician, the father, the compassionate & kind person he is! Thank You Michael J Jackson We Love You from here to Eternity!
