♦ Diane Dimond ♦'s Summary

Hello! Many people know me as the journalist who broke the story of the child sex allegations against entertainer Michael Jackson in 1993. My book on Jackson, Be Careful Who You Love: Inside the Michael Jackson Case, was published by Simon and Schuster/Atria Books in 2005.

But the truth is – that’s only one story in a vast body of work I’ve presented on television, radio and in print.

✭ I’ve interviewed infamous murderers behind bars including: James Earl Ray, Kenneth Bianchi, Jeffrey McDonald, Pamela Smart and Richard Allen Davis

✭ I’ve covered notorious criminal trials including: Casey Anthony, Senator John Edwards and Jerry Sandusky. My articles can be found at TheDailyBeast.com

✭ My investigative team broke the story behind the rape at the Kennedy compound in Palm Beach, Florida and id’d William Kennedy Smith as the accused

✭ My book, Cirque Du Salahi delved into the shoddy journalism behind the so- called “White House Gate Crashers,” story. The book provided an exclusive look at the lives of Tareq and Michaele Salahi and dissected the intersection of national media, politics and “Reality TV"

✭ When there’s a provocative crime story in the news I’m often called upon to give expert commentary and analysis on MSNBC, FOX, CNN, HLN, The Today Show or Good Morning America.

✭ My weekly column for Creators Syndicate is designed to get readers to look at our justice system through a different lens. Sometimes, I introduce an unforgettable character. Other times, I focus on an injustice and share my opinion on ways to make it better.

It’s a complicated world out there full of situations that pit good vs. evil, right vs. wrong. I figure it is my job to point them out.

If you have a story idea or would like to discuss the possibility of having me address your school, organization or law enforcement group contact me.

Best regards,
