The disgrace behind the scenes

For months MJ fans have been asking me to respond to the biased reporting of Nancy Grace and Diane Dimond during the Jackson trial (which seems to continue to this day). Fans want to know why these biased reporters have not been called to task for being irresponible with the facts -- for allegedly having agendas to try to destroy Michael Jackson.

First -- let me remind everyone that Diane Dimond was fired by Court TV immediately following the Not Guilty Verdicts in the 2005 Jackson trial.
Other than appearing on Nancy Grace's show to trash Jackson -- Dimond has not been seen on TV much - her career seems to be over. I will also say that Dimond's book was a flop -- and the rumor that she had a deal with Sneddon to gain exclusive access to take photos and footage of MJ behind bars -- well that's hearsay and also a moot point.....

As for Nancy Grace --who was able to launch her successful CNN show staring with the coverage of the Jackson trial -- she is loved by many and hated at the same time. Her reportage is so slanted -- it borders on criminal at times. That's just my opinion -- but there was a woman who killed herself after Grace made unfair accusations so I think that speaks volumes about Grace.

Also - just to set the record striaght about Nancy Grace's tactics -- she constantly referred to 2 books that. MJ had -- these books showing photos of boys were taken from MJ's ranch in 1993 and were held by Sneddon for 10 years to use as evidence. Grace had to know thay -- one thing she's not is stupid. But Grace reffered to these books repeatedly because it made for ratings and served her pro-prosuction agenda. What a shame that she is allowed to spew venom with no counter points being made against her. CNN should be more fair. That's just my opinion.

PS: I have the new copy of EBONY and Michael looks better than ever. What do they say? Looking good is the best revenge! MJ is a winner -- a man of
God.

No one can stop his genius!

thanks so much AJ for writing this. It's very important to know exactly where these "reporters" stand.

Your book is absolutely incredible and I can't praise you enough for it. It has been the best tool in my defence of Michael Jackson. The media was almost as bad in Australia against Mr. Jackson, but we did not have any Grace's or Diamonds fortunately. Those who have pay-TV were unlucky enough to see all their "reports" and interviews though. Anyone who comes near me with talk of Diamond's or Grace's "evidence"; I can tell them everything you have told us through your amazing book and continuing blogs. Thanks so much.
I hope you can bring your book to Australia- it's incredible!

irst of all I would like to Thank you very much Ms Jones. Thank you for the courage in speaking the truth about the MJ trial. I have been, like many intelligent people around the world, extremely worried and disappointed in the way that the media and reporting has changed in the last two decades or so. I was however shocked by the extent of this change which, became so obvious during Mr Jackson's trial. I am so happy to know that someone like you dared to do something about this injustice. I have purchased your wonderful book and have enjoyed every page of it. Thank you again.
P.S Yes MJ looks Hot on Ebony. I can't wait for his new album (which I will now buy no matter what).
Take care
God bless

I just wanted to thank you for doing this. I am very critical of how the news has developed, and how its become a very powerful, and in many ways "run the world", without us as a public being able to influence it- except with our decision to put money in their pockets or not. I watched a youtube video by you and Meserau, and I hope it will get attention.

I read The Michael Jackson Conspiracy 3 months ago, having purchased it on Amazon as soon as I heard about it. Frankly, I was surprised that someone actually had the courage to question the barrage of lies and filth thrown at Michael Jackson on a daily basis by mainstream media before, during and after the trial. I was delighted that there was actually another side of the story from a third party, someone who really wanted to take an objective point of view. What Aphrodite Jones has done commends not only her courage and refusal to follow the pack of mindless automatons who call themselves 'journalists', but it illustrates her belief that others also want to hear the truth for a change. Messereau did well to write her Forward, and it lends even greater validity to the power of the work. I am very grateful to Messeraeau and Jones for what they have done for Michael Jackson and I know that they are loved and respected by all of Michael Jackson's supporters.

Jennifer said...

Thank you, Aphrodite Jones, for exposing the truth.

I recently was informed of your book and I am literally RELIEVED to know someone with your professionalism and respected writing took time to investigate Michael Jackson's case.

Looking forward to reading your book because I have been defending and supporting Michael Jackson for years, but I never had the proof to say that he was not guilty. I felt there was never any evidence to pin point what he was accused of doing and that has been my argument for years.

May your holiday season by a joyous one for you have made me ecstatic like most Michael Jackson fans to know we have a truthful eye in his favor.

SienaJackson said...

I agree w/ you, Ms. Jones, I sure would like to read your book, Redemption was excellent. I agree about DD and NG being in TS's pocket, my opinion only tho :) but also, I agree about Michael looking positively gorgeous!! I have that mag, love it. I hope he wow's them all at the Superbowl, and the Grammies, and T25! I'm waiting for the cd! Thank you for the great article!

Thank you for writing "Michael Jackson Conspiracy". It means so much for us - Michael Jackson fans.

I wish it was translated to many languages, so that they who don't know english could read it too.

As for Diane Dimond - I didn't know she was fired. What a good news for me :D

In Ebony Michael looks awesome! In L'Uomo Vogue too...

Did Chandler's Father plant those magazines in his room or is Grace flat out lying 100%?

Angharad said...

something about his death?

you knew it...

pero estamos tratando de mantener su espiritu vivo, en su musica, en sus sentimientos

esto es una pesadilla

putty3737 said...

Hi please write your opinions about Michaels death and those around him. Personally I think sony might have killed him to get control of the Beatles catalog. Also pleas to honor Michael tour with your book about him again I think yours may be the only honest book about him out there and could be exactly what the public needs to hear and understand right now. I think it could also be important for this case being solved people realizing those around Michael much of the time were conspiring against him for there own agendas. thank you for your support of him so far take care.

donatopuente said...

Ms. Jones,
I have read your book and thought it was a very good read. I never believed the false accusations, but I wanted to read your book to see what information was in it.
I thank you so much for being a decent person/ journalist. I think you are the only one of your kind.
I plan to re-read the book since it was so interesting and have recommended it.

thank you for writting this article. iam Michael Jackson's #1 fan & i wnt to knw if you yourself apologised to Michael & us his fans because before you wrote the MJC you were in Nancy Grace and Diane Dimond's boat??? to be honest i still think you were motived by money to write the book, at the same time i thank you for writting the truth.

chance101 said...

I am definitely buying your book this week, I watched your YT video along with Tom Mesereau, and I can see the sincerity, honesty and integrity in you both! Will definitely post my review afterwards! BTW, how are you doing these days after Michael's death? Hope to hear you blog about his sudden death!

Di Dimond is an evil disgrace but I firmly believe in Karma and she will soon get her comeuppance...

MJ was also betrayed by Randy Taraborelli who describes himself as MJ's 'friend' but also appeared in the programme 'Michael Jackson: What really happened?' alongside Di Dimond and Bob Jones. The programme's clear agenda was to perpetuate the opinion that MJ was a child abuser despite the not guilty verdict. So I refuse to read Randy Taraborelli's book, as you recommended, because his participation in that programme was a huge betrayal of trust.

Kelly said...

Wow, Excellent book! Thank you for the guts to reveal and share the truth. Tried to share it with Oprah & friends on the Gayle King messageboard, hoping they will have a change of heart and invite you to her show.

Iren said...

Thank you for your book and everything you did for Michael! With deep respect from Russia.

Lia said...

Hello Miss Jones

That's really great to know MJ had a wonderful and caring person who believed on him!
Thank you so much!!!!!
love

Thank you so much for this book. It needed to be written and I'm so glad you did. I miss Michael so much, and I cherish the thought that he knew of this book before he died. He knew that someone cared and was courageous enough to write the truth. You must be very proud.

Hi Ms. Aphrodite Jones, I am still confuse as to why Nancy Grace would still be able to be TV? Her style of interview are so appalling and annoying. She is always interrupting her guest when they speak and never let them finish their sentences.

She speaks as if she's the only person in that room that is right. She acts like it's her way or no way. Who can hear anything with all of her shouting going on?

If someone says something that she doesn't agree with, oh man step back cause her eyeballs will pop out of them sockets and she's in rage mode. The exorcist has nothing on her!

It's time you need to be on her show to put her in her place about Michael Jackson on behalf of his children, family and fans. I believe Nancy Grace will be K.O. in the 1st round by you.

This also goes out to Diane Dimond, Bill O'Reilly, Martin Brashir, Hannity Combs, Peter King & Sunny Hostin.

I have your book and cannot seem to put it down. So far, so true! I'm so proud of you for coming out and being honest and admitting that you were wrong about the Michael Jackson's 2005 trial.

God bless you,

Kani

I want to thank you for writing this book. I never believed the gross allegations hurled at Michael Jackson but this book puts my mind at ease. I am astounded at the lengths the prosecution would go through to try and convict him. I am disgusted at all those that attempted and accomplished taking advantage of michael jackson and an even more so embarrassed by the media and how negatively they portrayed him. I still to this day cannot understand the hate towards Michael Jackson, especially from those who never even knew him. There are so many people out there that are ignorant to the facts but no matter who you are the entire world cannot love one man it is humanly impossible. There will always be hateful things said about him. I can only pray that most people realize that he was not a child molester or a bad person at that, even if they are not fans of his. I want to thank you and I hope michael appreciated the book. He will forever live in my heart, when I finally have children they too will know and love him. Long live the king, he was truly a beautiful person in every aspect of the word. Before I forget I never heard of diane diamond until michael's death and in viewing her on ET I realized her contempt for him and no longer wish to view any of those gossip outlets. It will go hand in hand with me not reading the tabloids as I have never been attracted to such garbage. GOd bless you

For all michael jackson fans or even if you are not a fan you should read this book. It tells us what we did not hear from the media threw out his trail. Once you read this book print out the article in GQ Magazine from 1994 it shows you how similar both these cases are. But most importantly is that it will help you realize that michael jackson was INNOCENT on both charges.
Both the book and the article shows how far people will go to get money from Celebraties. One thing i did realize is who much pain we can inflect on one person with out knowing them personally. Yeah sometimes it comes with the fame but not what we put Michael threw.. Really read this book it is great and thank you Aphodite Jones for writing this honest book about the trial and what the media and the DA did to michael for no true reason except for personal gain. If the media was correct and Michael was convicted man that would be a field day even today. For the DA he would have made history in bring down one of the great entertainer in history. And for what.. HONESTLY I AM SO GLAD THAT MICHAEL JACKSON SHOWED THEM WHO AND WHAT TYPE OF PERSON HE REALLY WAS.. LOVING AND CARING TO EVERYONE HE MET THREW OUT HIS LIFE. MAY HE NOW REST IN PEACE !!!!!

I posted this originally in the blog on the E! program. I think it's more appropriate here.

How does a vengeful sophist without a degree in journalism garner so much air time? This may have something to do with it.
“You hear the word ‘tabloid’ now and it doesn’t make people wrinkle up their nose in disgust the way it used to,” she said. “I think that’s because, whether they want to admit it or not, the networks have embraced a kind of populist journalism.”~~ Diane Dimond

No one is more guilty of Medialoid reporting than DD, and no one historically more hurt by it than MJ. Medialoid is a term I coined to describe the infiltration of salacious tabloid-style reporting into mainstream journalism, specifically as it relates to MJ. It’s now in Urban Dictionary. As Mark Geragos described the phenomena, paraphrased. “News outlets hire a journalist and a tabloid reporter to cover high-profile cases. The latter prints rumor that the former picks up and prints. It’s no longer story-telling, it’s a gang-bang.”

Can she be stopped? That may be a pipedream, but those who know and love MJ can call her out on her salacious lies in innuendo everywhere she brazenly posts it. Write the producers of programs that feature her.

And thank you A, for setting the record straight. I ordered an autographed copy of your book this morning and can't wait for it to arrive. Bless you for this labor of love !

Just to set the record straight as long as michael has people talking on his behalf that is what counts. We can't stop freedom of speech and we all know that. No matter what the media nor the tabloids say about michael jackson it truly shouldn't matter as long as you and I believe in him that's what matters the most. Someday his children are going to surf the website to see what his fans thought about their dad. Than and only than will they realize how many good people love him and believed in him. The book that aphodite jones wrote was great.like tell everyone to get a copy and read the truth. Their is another book called redemption that I want to read it is about the truth in the case with jordie chandler. Keep your head up high and don't fall to the level of the devil who write even today horrible things about michael.remember he is now with god above as one of his angels. God wanted him home because he didn't like we did to his precious angel. Michael has healed and now is whole again.

As much as I can't stand Nancy Grace & Diane Dimond, I think 2 things should be pointed out as fact; whether any of us like it or not & it's not fair. Nancy Grace is a former prosecutor. She'll always take the prosecution's side in any case that she covers. That won't ever change. Diane Dimond is right in her statement that media has begun to engage in "populist journalism". That, too, won't ever change. I heard Charles Gibson, a former ABC News anchor say that someone, a formoer journalist, I think, told him a long time ago that true objectivity in journalism will never be obtained. There are only lesser degrees of subjectivity. That statement & the "populist journalism" that has become the 'norm' are the reality.
