CNN’s Nancy Grace Show: Tonight’s guest–Sigmund Freud
According to USAToday.com, “Nancy Grace is on the case”. In an article by author “Peter Johnson”, Grace states about defense attorneys,
“when people say defense lawyers are just doing their jobs and are necessary for our system, you could say that about a lot of people who claim they’re just doing their jobs. You could say that about the guards at Auschwitz.” In the same article Johnson states, “For Grace, anyone who has been charged must be guilty,” TV critic Matt Zoller Seitz wrote last year in The Star-Ledger of Newark, N.J. Grace “never goes a day without blowing a gasket over whatever case she happens to be discussing … throwing journalistic objectivity in the nearest dumpster, slamming defense attorneys as pimps in fancy suits and declaring defendants guilty because, well, they just seem guilty.”
Grace stated in the same interview, “our Founding Fathers wanted courthouses to be big enough for the whole community to come in and watch justice unfold. I think that’s what our whole show is all about.”
Is it any wonder that Fox News powerhouse Bill O’Reilly more than quadruples Nancy Grace’s TV ratings? After all, Grace is so predictable. Just tune in once and you’ve seen every show although sometimes there’s a different victim. And our founding fathers I dare say would be appalled by Nancy Grace and her show. I doubt for even a moment that any of the founding fathers of our great country would have wanted defendants tried in public, unofficially prior to the actual trial with little or no evidence other than the opinion of a woman with an agenda. I seriously doubt the founding fathers would have wanted any media to liken defense attorney’s to “guards at Auschwitz”.
In the name of “ratings” CNN has given up on it’s primary mission; to present news that is objective and unbiased. While news shows have become increasingly more partisan in recent years, how far over the proverbial line must a news show go to be called on the carpet as being dangerous? Calling the Nancy Grace Show “news” is like putting lipstick on a pig. So, why does her following increase? Why does the Nancy Grace Show continue to climb in the ratings? Because ignorant people love to see tragedy. Underdogs love to see “justice” whether it be real or imaginary. And replacing action with talk is what most weak minded people are all about.
Listen to any caller who gets on Nancy Grace’s show. They are carefully screened and hand picked certified morons. They ask questions as though the case is being tried on the air. Well—–it is, at least to them. Sadly, how can this type of legal advertisement for the prosecution not effect a potential jury? I’m not sure CNN or Nancy Grace really have much concern about justice for, had they any conscience they would not presume that anyone is guilty prior to an actual trial. They might examine facts and have conversation but, that would be responsible and the viewers would not like that as much. It’s much more interesting to be angry and cruel to anyone who happens to be down regardless of their guilt of innocence. Let’s face it the “kick em when their down” mentality is what most uneducated people, who do not think with logic or real compassion adhere to. Why? Because it’s easy and it makes them feel they are more important because they are “good”
Until Nancy gets the proper therapy and learns to better deal with her unconscious hostility, she will continue to spew her erroneous testimony about the airwaves. Doing so, will in no way bring her ex Fiance “Keith Griffin” back from the dead. I feel sad for Nancy because, she could learn to have inner peace about her tragedy but instead of seeking it in a healthy and ethical way, she chooses to find guilt around her to punish as though it will mend or negate what happened in her past. The only path to enlightenment is self exploration yet, Nancy is always looking outward; lashing out at everyone she can with fervor and gusto. She relishes her sadistic discourse as in one moment she attacks and in the next she fake cries her way into the hearts of all the professional victims of the world.
Why is this happening? It is happening because you allow it to happen. We all have a voice in this county. Rarely do we find the time to exercise our voices. We prefer to allow our politicians to speak for us. I think they have more important things to do than worry about Grace. But in the long run, what is this type of show doing to our people? The show that makes it look like it’s unsafe to walk down the street and the show that makes one wonder if their own spouse will go crazy at any moment.
It is time to complain politely to CNN and to let them know that we will not stand for this type of hypocritical nonsense– A servant of the law indoctrinating the ignorant into believing that our legal system does not work. We have the best legal system in the world. Yet Nancy in her infinite wisdom has decided that we should hang anyone accused of anything with no trial. Reasonable doubt begins with the word “reason” which is what I think the news could use a lot more of. People may use emotions, feelings, and unsubstantiated opinions to easily convict the innocent. This is the very reason we have a court system and trial by jury. It does not take Sigmund Freud to figure that out.
