What responsibility does media and news reporting have to victims of crime? Our media culture has created pop icons out of criminals, yet we rarely remember the names of the victims. Is this fair and balanced journalism? Our guest, Diane Dimond will discuss her experiences as one of the country's most trusted source for the truth in media.
Diane Dimond is one of the few journalists who can claim proficiency as a crossover media personality – proficient in radio, television, print and as the author of three books. She has reported on several high profile issues including The Casey Anthony murder trial, the political corruption trial of former Senator John Edwards and the child molestation case against former Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky.
Many of us remember her as the anchor of daytime court coverage and Chief Correspondent of the CTV investigative Unit, as well as several other networks. She is best known for breaking the story of child molestation allegations against singer Michael Jackson in late 1993 and following the story through the entertainer’s criminal trial in 2005.
