That said, Diane Dimond's bias shown like an impossible-to-ignore glare off a TV screen. It was hard to focus on anything she was saying because her choice of language and the things she seemed to gloss over were so distracting.
1. Language: Repeatedly using terms like "OSS Agents" and "Jackson Operatives" both dehumanize Michael and make it appear that he has formed his own literal army. Diane Dimond would have us believe that a specialized group of men are at Jackson's disposal to harrass, threaten, and even attempt to kill accusers.
Supporters of Michael Jackson (not fans, but employees, friends, and family) are all labeled as "Jackson loyalists" in a weak attempt to discredit them. Anything Jackson's managers and lawyers did is repeatedly referred to as "attacks" on the accusers rather than as defense of the accused.
2. Glossed over facts:
After being portrayed as victims who were harrassed and threatened and either wrongfully fired or forced to quit, it is mentioned only in a single sentance that two of the former employees lodging complaints against Michael and his "agents" were found guilty of stealing from Neverland and selling the goods for thousands of dollars. Diane trys to discredit the idea that these employees were money-hungry and disgruntled, but it appears some were just pissy that their flow of free cash was cut off.Read more ›
This did not happen. In fact, the opposite. CourtTV ripped the magic carpet right out from under her. I mean, you have to be pretty awful to not reach CourtTV's standards. Without a job or any stich of credibility, Dimond composed "Be Careful Who You Love," despaerate effort to salvage her image and career. Sad.
Today she writes for a site called "True Slant." Oh, oh, the irony. My suggestion, for those interested in Jackson's child molestation charges, is to go directly to the primary sources. Court transcripts are available online. There you will find a word by word account of the three ring circus that California tax payers paid $2.7 million dollars for.
I'm a fan of open-mindedness and honor. Unfortunately, these are concepts Dimond seems totally unaware of.
Lets face it we are going to believe what we want to believe, and Ms. Dimond wants to believe he is evil.
So I'll say it again...
This book is cheap and I am ashamed I read it.
Jordie's father (who recently committed suicide) asked for a multi million dollar payout upfront on his very first meeting with MJ. This is mentioned in passing, as if it was a small, unimportant detail. There are tape recorded messages of Jordie's father saying if he does not get the money he demands, he will destroy MJ. Um, what parent wouldnt just be calling the police?
Or the writer will go into great detail about how MJ supposedly fondled young boys, but then glosses over the fact that the witness was an ex employee, who for some reason never felt compelled to report this child abuse which he witnessed on multiple occasions while employed by MJ -- and he continued to work for MJ for years.
How did MJ get away with molesting children for months on end with their mothers and siblings right there ? The writer says MJ supposedly paid the parents off with generous gifts and big checks. If that is true, that makes the parents guilty of pimping their children to a pedophile. There is no explanation how the parents were never charged with endangering a child, nor how their sudden wealth was left unexamined by the courts and child protection agencies.Read more ›
