Part 2: Tab Reporter Gets the Ax Amidst Criticism of being Unfair and Unbalanced? MB #283 Dimond’s 2003-2005 Jackson coverage isn’t the first time one-sided reports have hit the air SEPTEMBER 14 2005 In Part One of this special MJEOL Bullet, we discussed Dimonds recent departure from Court TV and some of her pro-prosecution reporting on the Michael Jackson case. Also mentioned was the way in which she seems not to understand why some observers hold the view that she is less of a reporter and more of a commentator who has taken a specific side in this fight between Jackson and his detractors. And Im not going to even get into her NY Post commentary with titles like ’93 mystery victim might emerge to sink jacko and Wife No. 2 will zing the King of Pop! Remember, this is the same Dimond who publicly claimed she was distressed that Geraldo Rivera was skirting the line between being a reporter and being an opinion columnist when he correctly called the Jackson case a sham (Crier Live, Feb 4 2005 telephone interview). She chided him, claiming This is not how a journalist acts. Ha! She also had the audacity to ask if Rivera was trying to influence the jury selection; a question which wouldnt be so laughable if it werent coming from her.
