Michael Jackson has long captured the world’s attention, first as the dynamic lead singer of the Jackson Five, then during his highly successful breakout solo career. But somewhere along the line Jackson transformed himself into something hardly recognizable and was investigated — not once, but twice — for crimes we could hardly imagine.

Even after his unexpected acquittal on multiple charges of child molestation, there was a sense that the real truth behind the allegations was not known. The character of Michael Jackson — from his humble beginnings to his rich career and the birth of Neverland Ranch — is destined for great debate among fans, journalists, historians, and psychiatrists for years to come. In the meantime, there is Diane Dimond, the journalist of record on the Jackson case.

Diane, because you believe in Michael Jackson’s guilt is that why you after his death keep trying to prove you were right, he is guilty? Are you now the Michael Jackson court, for God sake he is dead and you and other people still trying to make money off him. Michael Jackson is the gift that keeps on giving.

Ms. Cotton, You, honestly, have no idea what you are talking about.

I am a journalist…when there is breaking news in a story (ANY Story) that I have covered in the past, yes, I will report an update. That’s what reporters do.
Like many MJ fans you obviously have drunk the Kool-aid that Diane Dimond somehow miraculously conjures up Michael Jackson news. In reality, it is the other way around. When Wade Robson comes out with his allegations of past abuse at the hands of Michael Jackson– I have nothing to do with that revelation. When Katherine Jackson files a massive “wrongful death” suit against AEG, did I spur her on to do that? The answer is no. Do I report stories like that? Yes – because, again, that’s what reporters do.

If you bothered to learn anything about me you would know that I cover hundreds and hundreds of crime and justice stories – check my web site for verification of that. You MJ fans apparently think the whole world revolves around Michael Jackson. I do not. And contrary to what you believe I do not “make my living off him.” I wrote a book about him in 2005 – do the math to figure out how many years ago that was. In offering this chapter here I make no money – I just got tired of answering individual inquires about what I thought of the Wade Robson claims. I got permission from my publisher to give this chapter away FOR FREE.

For me Michael Jackson is not the “gift that keeps on giving.” That’s your world, not mine.

The “gift that keeps on giving” is pedophilia; few victims recover fully from this trauma and all the medical literature says that children who are molested are 60 times more likely to become molesters themselves sometime in adulthood.

Michael Jackson was a pedophile just as O.J. Simpson is a murderer. Diane Dimond is a first-rate journalist in print, television and radio (NPR). And, of course, the people who made the most money off MJ are his parents and siblings; does Linda Cotton really believe that ANYONE could grow up in America’s most dysfunctional family are emerge without serious emotional problems?

She probably does: I stopped counting after seeing five errors of spelling, punctuation and syntax in her one paragraph note. Obviously, she is so ignorant and hopelessly shallow that fading pop stars are the center of her narrow, narrow universe.

“The gift that keeps on giving is pedophilia”; excellent analogy Frank. In the court of public opinion of critical thinkers the preponderance of evidence, i.e. charges dropped by victim’s parents, behavioral changes of the victim after returning home from a week-end at Michael Pederous’ playground, is sufficient grounds to return a guilty verdict.
