Nancy (Absent of) Grace

Can you believe it??? Nancy Grace still has a program that is All Caylee -- All the Time.

The irony of the teaser at the bottom of the screen tonight stopped me "dead" as I was channel surfing tonight. It says (I kid you not):

Outrage: Photos Of Caylee's Remains May be Sold

What about the outrage that this so-called journalist has built a multi-million dollar industry on Caylee's remains?

I think the outrage is because someone other than Nancy Grace is going to get to sell the pictures.

She already had an empire with Lacy Peterson.

I wouldn't be surprised if Nancy Grace is the one who owns the photos and her outrage has been completely manufactured in an attempt to drive up the price for the pics. She just wants the biggest return on her investment.

I eat dinner at the Alpine Casino here in Billings quite often. It's cheap and the food is decent (I do miss the live keno, though). The biggest complaint I have about the place is that they insist on having Nancy Grace on every night I've been in there.

Nothing helps me choke down my dinner better than watching a show about a dead child. Especially if it's hosted by a living vampire.

As if having Nancy disGrace beamed into my home every night isn't insulting enough, I just saw a promo for an upcoming - drum roll please - Sanjaya Special!

Anyone wanna buy a used TV? cheap!

Nancy Grace is a parasite of the greatest order. She's a tapeworm who consumes every thing nourishing to the detriment of others. Blech.

Give her a break! Since the Jon-Bonet Ramsey gravy train dried up, she has to do something!

I feel fortunate in that I have never watched Nancy Grace, have no idea what she even looks like, and wouldn't have a clue who she is if it wasn't for all you mc.commers who gripe about her here.

Maybe you should change the channel? I like to get my TV news from the Lehrer News Hour.

hey Gunnar - Great idea - now why didn't I think of that?

The fact is, I don't watch her and I TRY to avoid her. Unfortunately, as a chronic channel surfer I can't help but stumble upon her from time to time. And each time I do it amazes read: sickens) me that this parasite of a TV "personality" is allowed to abuse the airwaves. Something tells me that Maxwell and Marconi would have stopped dead in their tracks if they knew their discoveries and inventions were paving the way for slop like Nancy Grace.

And it isn't just that she is obnoxious. There is no telling how much her hysterical coverage costs local law enforcement which is forced to respond to her constant broadsides on their investigation. Boulder County and the City of Boulder estimated that the media circus around the JonBenet murder multiplied the cost (to taxpayers) of investigating that crime many times over - obviously with no improvement in the final product and in fact at great harm to the parents who (it appears) are innocent of the crimes they were accused, tried and convicted of in the court of public opinion fueled by ratings-mad "investigative journalism" reality TV shows.

It would be one thing if society was deriving any benefits from Nancy Grace's efforts. What John Walsh did after the abduction of his son, Adam, might have been controversial, but it has resulted in great improvements across the country. The same can't be said for Nancy's bantering: she is all hype and no help.

Then there is the intrusion into the lives of those who truly are affected by the crime. When do they finally get to grieve in private? When do they get to take control of their life back? Why does this one woman (and the corporation behind her) get to take control of the situation? Why should she be allowed to use publicly licensed airwaves to profit at the expense of the private individuals who have been truly harmed and are now perpetually reminded of that injury?

I don't expect you to give these questions another thought if you don't want. After all, they won't keep me up tonight. But I do think they are worthy questions to for public discussion, and hopefully they will one day be addressed and resolved in the appropriate arenas (i.e., legislatures) because they do have public and private implications. After all, but for the grace of God (npi), any one of us could find ourselves sitting in the Ramseys "hot seat" someday.
