Amen and super Amen!
You know Astraea, I used to love what I thought was "hard hitting" journalism from Nancy Grace. That was when I was in my "tell it like it is" era. Then, when I calmed down and began actually listening to not only Nancy, but other so called journalists, I found that I was looking for Walter Cronkite ( integrity wise) and was getting pumped up and badly sensationalized "nothing".....just like the air balloon, there is no substance. Now I watched that balloon which I thought was carrying a small child, because I could not fathom the size of it as it floated across the mountains, etc and prayed and prayed for that child.
The opening of the balloon with no child inside made my stomach crawl. I did not and could not envision some broken little body that had fallen to earth. I also applauded and jumped and yelled when the child was found at home. Then, my suspicions began to emerge. I watched the parents' faces and a vague memory of Susan Smith floated to mind. In the case of Susan, the results were far more tragic, but I had that "gut" feeling happen and I didnt know why.
Back to Nancy Grace. While she was covering the missing child ( Shaniya) who was later found dead, I felt as if she really cared, and she just might. The amount of sensationalism that she adds to everything, twisting her mouth around like the mother of Angelica on Rug Rats and trying to be whatever she thinks that she needs to be for the camera and for ratings, just grates on my nerves.
A few years ago, a women's club to which I belonged had an attorney as our guest speaker. He was a former elected official, and does expert commentary on shows like Larry King, Shepard Smith, etc. He said that with virtually no facts on a case whatsoever, they want the legal expert to come up with a scenerio, based on "ifs". What a waste of time & energy!
