Dimond Uses Jackson for Financial Gain…Again – MJEOL Bullet #33

Dimond Uses Jackson for Financial Gain……Again – MJEOL Bullet #33

Court TV’s Diane Dimond has once again used Michael Jackson to procure gains in her financial and career status. It was announced on the Business Wire (Nov 24) that she will now host Court TV’s Hollywood at Large.

Dimond’s obvious reward for reporting various Jackson information, confirmed or not, has been examined by some who see her as little more than a gossip-monger with an unjustly elevated platform. The press release announcing her supposed triumph specifically points to her work with breaking the recent Jackson story as a way to convince people of her alleged worthiness for the new position.

However, upon closer inspection, one could wonder what the COO of Court TV, Art Bell, is thinking by making her their new star. Dimond rode to fame working for the now defunct tabloid TV show Hard Copy. She got into hot water with Jackson, and the law, when she was spreading a damaging lie about the 1993 case from one of her “sources.”
