if one looks at every page of every transcript since “Nancy Grace” debuted three months ago, the program more closely resembles a torch-bearing mob than the “legal issues” show that CNN promised. Grace has created her own parallel universe in which guests are berated for advocating due process, panelists are invited back frequently if they make ad hominem attacks and suspects are seemingly guilty until proven innocent.
As I’ve mentioned before, I don’t have cable, and, therefore, don’t watch these infotainment news channels such as CNN, MSNBC, and the king of them all, Fox “news”. I realized, while on my trip to Louisville, that I was not missing out AT ALL.
As I was flipping through the channels on my hotel television I came across this Nancy Grace woman, and was rather horrified. I kind of stared at the television in disbelief for a few minutes. Not believing that this shrill, awful woman was on television. At the time I didn’t know I was watching CNN.
This woman was very stupid. She was saying really stupid things that didn’t warrant her to devote a television show to them. She was incessently droning on and on about a serial killer and that he should just fry, and why are we spending our taxpayer dollars on letting this person sit on death row and getting the chance to have his case appealed. She would go on and on with details about what he did to his victims to make her point. And she went into grusome details, too. I was getting grossed out by the details. The lawyer she was talking to voiced what I was thinking in my head. He had this look on his face like he was thinking, “Is this woman THAT stupid?” and he said, “Nancy, we live in a country in which we rule by law.” Duh.
