Fox News Under Fire For De Facto Naming Jacko’s Alleged Victim

Diane Dimond was on CNN’s Paula Zahn Now program to talk about the molestation charges and was biting her tongue to keep from lashing out at Roger Friedman of, who all but identified the 12-year-old alleged rape victim in his column Wednesday night and a subsequent appearance on Fox News Channel’s Hannity and Colmes show, providing details that only one person, who has in the past been clearly identified by full name, could fit the description to. When guest host Aaron Brown asked Dimond about the circumstances surrounding the arrest, Dimond responded, “I will tell you that I’ve covered this story for so long and covered a lot of child molesting stories and I want to say it does us absolutely no good to reveal this child’s identity and, remember, this is a child. This child…” When Brown assured he wasn’t asking for the identity, Dimond added, “I understand. It’s out there, it’s already on the Web site with other news organizations. And I don’t want to go there, but, yes. What you just heard, I’ve heard, too. I get it from top law enforcement sources that there was alcohol involved. And that Neverland was used as a lure.” Later, she got into an argument with Jackson family attorney Brian Oxman. Check out a transcript here.

    I kinda feel sorry for MJ because he is obviously not in his right mind… you can look at him and tell that… but on the flip side… he should have learned his lesson the first time all this crap happened and separated himself from children accept in the presence of other people or family members…. and the kid.. if this is true.. what a shame.. cancer and dying wish was to see him,,, and this happens… hmm. bad! he’s definitely a strange one! there is no reason to have sleep overs with 12yo boys…. NO REASON! hmm.. just don’t know what to say about this one.. sorry MJ.. hope you get the help you need to correct whatever disorder you have… o lord.. just wait until Latoya speaks about this.. she’s gonna rip into him.

    To identify that child on national television is disgusting and embarrassing. Not to mention illegal and morally wrong. If the child was indeed molested, hasn’t he been through enough? Gosh, there are so many ignorant people.
