From all I have heard of the potential kidnapping of the 2 year old boy, BEFORE Graces fiasco, I always felt that there was more than the Mother was telling, but that is for the local law enforcement to pin point.

I have listened to Nancy Grace before but have never liked her cause of her holier than thou attitude that she has to everyone. I hope this comes back to bite her in the butt!

Nancy Grace will be eating crow
How strange that I've always disliked holier than thou people, and have been able to smell them a mile away, but I never saw these traits in Nancy Grace, until the Peterson trial. Before this, I was one of her biggest fans.

When I saw her interviewing Elizabeth Smart, is the day I came close to hating her. Had I been Elizabeth, I would have walked off the set immediately.

Yes, you are right, as always, Nancy Grace will be eating crow for a long time, if not forever!

So I have to tell you I hated Nancy with a passion but after watching the show a little I did like it more because she really got me to thinking around cases and circumstances and factors I had not previously thought about. Her style leaves alot to be desired but I watched her occasionally.

My opinion? I agree with the panel that she was outside of her bounds with her attitude with the mother. It's obvious she was not prepared for the show and who would be? If my kid was kidnapped I would be a total wreck. Because she was not giving gory details about her whereabouts for whatever reason, Nancy attacked her. She was pretty hard on her and I hope she learns from this. I also don't buy the fact that the interview was not yet aired, she knew that it was going to be. I do think that Nancy is probably a caring person but got very carried away this time. Honestly, I hope she gets canceled. As a survivor of suicide (not mine) I can't advocate anyone pushing someone, who is going through so much, this hard.

I put myself in the woman's place
I put myself in the woman's place. There's no way I could have thought clearly by the interrogation by Nancy Grace.

There are so many reasons why the woman wouldn't answer the question as to her whereabouts. Maybe she was with some lover. Her ex-husband, who is a jerk, and who spoke horrible things about her, was trying to get custody of the baby. Also, it is possible that the baby is still alive, with some family member. We don't know, and this is prime example why Nancy Grace should never have assumed that this woman murdered her baby. Also, where is the baby? We may never know, because the mother is now dead.

No, Nancy Grace has NOT learned from this. I just saw a new video, where she condones her actions.

No, Nancy Grace is not a caring person. I'm a BIG fan of Courttv, and have recorded it for the longest time, to watch on weekends. Nancy has this habit of finding people GUILTY, while they're still in court, presenting their case.

I use to love Nancy very much, but I stopped somewhere along the way, when I finally saw that she is a sensationalist, trying to get big ratings.

I have seen rabid dogs with more compassion than this woman shows.

I also agree with the panel that she went over the line by hammering the mother. It's not the media's job to determine guilt or not. That is for a judge and jury to decide.

In the second one, she again shows how compassionate she is. She is told several times 'I don't want to talk about this' and keeps asking the girl the same stuff. "Oh, I thought you wanted to help other victims" is NOT an excuse. Evidently it was not the reason for her being on the show!

Here is just another reason I am glad I do not have cable TV.
Sep. 16th, 2006 09:54 pm (UTC)
hot water
And she still shows no compassion nor remorse. I've just now seen a brand new video where she continues to make herself hollier than thou about the suicide of the woman.

She needs to shut her mouth, because it continues to get her in hot water.

Where to start...

I guess from the beginning. Nancy is my 2nd cousin. Met her several times.

Doesn't mean I condone her actions. I'm totally 50/50.
I recommend reading the transcript to get the meaning without the tone. Duckett was purposely evasive in a non-prudent way. Her failure to reply to questions, her constant asking to repeat questions, and total inability to keep up with a conversation that only consisted of only 3 real questions raises some eyebrows.
However, the last guy on the first clip said it all. Witnesses like this, you have to treat with kid gloves, not hit over the head with a hammer. Answeres that might have been available are now lost forever. Yes, she was formally a prosecutor, but in this role, she was an anchor, and did not conduct herself in a professional fashion. She went for ratings, press, and publicity. And that's what she got. And what if she was wrong and badgered an innocent witness? And then to be so non-apologetic. And her excuse?? Fuck that.
So in summary, they both suck, fuck them.
and just for fun...here's an old post and dream I had about her. And here's a sneak preview: She had a penis.

Wow! Nancy Grace is your cousin!!
I visited the link, and no, you are not getting fat, and in fact, have quite a handsome looking face!

Wow! Nancy Grace is your cousin!!

I'd hate to be in Nancy Grace's shoes, it it turns out that the child is found alive and well, at a friend or family member's home. And she did murder the baby, how in the world will he be found now?!

It is so dangerous to assume things, without facts, and this is exactly what Nancy Grace did.

I was once a BIG time fan of Nancy Grace, but then I started noticing that she would condemn people, before they were found guilty or innocent by the jury.

Thank you so much for sharing!

You need to avoid the media for a while.

Or read George Orwell's 1984.

The media perpetuate fear and negativity. I notice you get pretty bent from the news. You've got so many good things to care for close to home. I'm not saying ignore the world, but focus on what is good and right (becasue you won't be getting any of that from the media)
Sep. 16th, 2006 09:56 pm (UTC)
in a pickle
We MUST continue watching the media, because it looks very much like they're our worst enemy!

God forbid any of us finds ourselves in a pickle! They'll crucify us before we go to trial!

Bias is for editorials.

Journalism is supposed to be objective.

That's the problem with almost all news today IN the US.... it is not unbiased and objective, and so, people looking for clear stories without some political or ideological bent are having problems find them.
Sep. 16th, 2006 10:19 pm (UTC)
You are so right!
Yes, they are suppose to be objective. What the hell has happened that they have suddenly become judge and jury?

I'm thinking back to John Mark Karr. The media had much to do with the fiasco that happened. It wasn't news, it was a circus, that ended up costing Americans a fortune. From the first moment I laid eyes on that fruitcake, I saw he was a fruitcake!
Sep. 15th, 2006 03:01 pm (UTC)
Hate that bitch...
I hate her. I've written CNN more than once about her because what she does in inapproriate. Her show is proof that americans are more interested in drama/ entertainment than facts. It is all bravado. It is all for ratings. And she is not and never has been in a position that gives her the right to ask the questions she asks nor interigate people. That should be left up to trained professionals, not some stupid bitch you have to compete for ratings with survivor, and will do anything to get them.

If this woman was sucicidal pre-interview (which nancy grace wants us to believe), she shouldnt have been hounding her with questions which i believe the mother even replied but was spoken over by the bitch "they (investigating officers) have told me not to share that information".
When she continues to ask questions on information the mother has been told not to disclose, nancy grace is obstucting justice.
The bitch onces us to believe this mother was suicidal - so why did she make attempts to push her over? If these producers are so sensitive, why was the interview continued when this suicidal woman was attacked?

If this woman did murder her baby (which nancy grace alludes to continuiously), what right has she to push this woman. Not only did this result in the family losing thier daughter, but if she was the murderer nancy grace has also taken away the possibility of closure for the family regarding the understanding of motive and retrieval of the babys body.

She is a cruel manipulative media whore, who has no place on a channel that is supposed to be dedicated to "headline news" and not personal and polictical propoganda.

Re: Hate that bitch...
I never thought the day would come that I would agree with you, because I once loved Nancy Grace. I started seeing her true colors on Courttv, when she would already have any person standing trial in court, CONVICTED.

There was this other woman I disliked from the very beginning, but I just can't remember her name. She has a very big mouth, and shoulder length brown hair. She copied Nancy's style very well, and gave her stupid opinions as LAW, before the defendant was found either innocent or guilty.

There's another person I dislike intensely, and that's Geraldo Rivera. I will soon be making a post about this odious man!

Another thing that has me enraged is the Anna Nicole Smith death of her son. From the very beginning, the vultures were saying that the guy had died of drugs. As it turns out, after an autopsey, there were no drugs found in his system, and he had been a straight A student, plus as normal and loving as could be.

My blood boils at hearing these people assume things that they have no earthly idea if they are true.

All this bull corn must stop. Those who are presenting the news to us, are nothing more than ruthless, attention seeking gossip-mongers.

Also, what if the missing baby of that poor woman who killed herself is ALIVE?! And if she murdered him, he will never be found, thanks to Nancy Graces big mouth!

I would, but I can't watch videos.....

*hugs* love you!!

Oh no! Youtube is the best thing that's come along, and I'm totally addicted to it! How I wish you could see it, too! Maybe someday.

Hugs and so much love!

I absolutely loathe Nancy Grace.

Headline News has sucked since they replaced news with shows like Nancy Grace, Glen Beck, and Prime News.

Nancy is overly opinionated, overly aggressive, rude, obnoxious, closed minded bull in a china shop. I feel deepest sympathy for anyone who MUST share breathing space with her. I am thinking if CNN had a yearbook she would be voted most likely to be killed by a coworker.

Glen Beck is constantly going on and on about 'The End of the World' blah blah blah! They could just as easily put Jerry Falwell or Dennis Miller on aire and have the same effect.

Headline News has switched format from informational news content to useless celebrity opinions. Glen Beck & Nancy Grace's opinion is just that, an opinion, it is not news, and it's not even good entertainment.

Good news presents the facts with minimal opinion, allowing an individual to make up their own mind.
Sep. 16th, 2006 12:52 am (UTC)
Once upon a time
Once upon a time, I was a BIG fan of Nancy Grace. But somewhere along the line, I started to dislike her to the point where I would change my beloved Courttv channel when she'd come out.

When I saw her INTEROGATING Elizabeth Smart, who was a VICTIM of crime, and making insinuations of God know what, is the day I truly saw Nancy Grace for what she really is, a cold, ruthless woman.

Another person I dislike intensely is Geraldo Rivera. I will make a post about this obnoxious man soon.

These people have ruined countless lives. I honestly believe that this time, Nancy Grace is sweating it BIG TIME!

Hi playgirl, it's me, Mickey M. from the old live journal. I have this new one now. And the info page explains everything, as does the fist entry. So I am hopeful that you will add me back my dear. It's so good to be here with you again...

I send my best and all good wishes for goodness always ...

sadness does not come close to how I feel when I watch the world demonstrate only hate and contempt for God's OTHER creatures... I just have a feeling that the REAl God, not the one created by the moronic religions of earth, will get so angry with our hate that He or She is going to come down here and deliver a wrath that none of  these so-called God worshipers are prepared for...

I follow NOT man... I shall never follow man as he justifies demonstrating his love of God by KILLING  humans, God's CREATIONS...

I follow God... it's time that these assholes from the various religions stop listening to the HUMANS who DO NOT speak for God and start listening to God...for God is Just 1 Thing... and 1 Thing ONLY...


all the other CRAP is just how humans LOVE to JUSTIFY their HATE and LOVE for KILLING... And I shall never follow that warped and hateful behavior...

As long as the world sees fit to demonstrate their love of God by KILLING HIS CREATIONS I shall NEVER follow them, or respect them.

For I do not respect humans who PRETEND to know the mind of God... for God is NOT KILLING

That's HUMANS' doing. NOT God.

So... as I said, as I move into the very last years I have here on earth... I am not afraid to Meet God... For I have never acted out in vengeance where any of his human creations have ever been hurt or killed... The Jews and the Christians and the Muslims CANNOT, or WILL THEY EVER BE ABLE TO MAKE THAT CLAIM!

Those who support the sword or live by it... Shall receive what they have sewn... by God's Hands, NOT MINE OR THEIR OWN...And God is ANGRY and HE's Coming... and he's coming for the Christians, Jews and the Muslims for using The Bible to MURDER and KILL children and WOMEN and Men... in His NAME... God DOES NOT SUPPORT KILLING... The BIBLE was written by a HUMAN NOT GOD...

Do the right thing...STOP KILLING God's CREATIONS! HE MADE THEM NOT YOU! YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO KILL OTHERS When it is NOT YOU WHO MADE THEM... ONLY GOD as the right to take life... all those take life in God's Stead will be visited By God and the BILL WILL BE DUE...

And those who have supported killing will get back what they have supported... and God, My Mother, who sits with God, and me, will be laughing as we watch the KNOW it alls and those of religion screaming and begging for mercy as God delivers them to the boss... SATAN..

and jerry the fuck Falwell and pat I hate all life Robertson will be right there, by SATAN laughing as all their followers are burned in Satan's Hell for using the Bible to KILL and DESTROY HUMAN CREATIONS OF GOD...

You do it... and God will do it to you...

I only have a few years left for me... my health will make sure that my walk home will be soon... But, as I said, when I go home... I'll see, God, be able to finally meet Mom, and perhaps Dad... and then... just to say, "Thank-You So much Mom...your saving my life... well, Mom, you actually helped me to save many, many lives... for while I never knew you... I knew you were with me, Mom.. And I tried Mom... I tried hard to always be the love you showed me... I tried Mom...and I'm coming home, Mom... I'm finally going to come home soon... finally...to just hold you... drink in your fragrance... hear your heart beat... and see you smile... to be home... this old traveler is so tired Mom... so tired... but my love for you, since I found you, Mom...well, that's never wavered... never... never faltered. You might have gone home before me Mom... but I'm truly on my way darling... and there are tons of little children I met along the way.  Mom? Will you love them as much as you loved me? Please...they so desperately need a Mom... They have been killed, Mom.. Please open your heart as you sit near God... Please take these tiny souls into your heart and love them the way you loved me on December 30, 1950 at 11:10 am... Please love them Mom... for I send them to you with my love... from my heart to your's Mom... it my deal to you... I love you...

And I love you too Playgirl... I just know Mom would love you just as much as I do...

May God, the real one, always shine his love on your and all who are part of your life circle...

I am not afraid.
My dearest Mickey, I wonder how much more time we have, before this place we call earth, become a giant ball of fire. What's so sad about it is, that we, the little people have no say in putting a stop to it.

God save us from these men of wealth and power, who proclaim themselves to have greater intelligence than the masses. For once in my life, I give thanks that I was born with the intelligence of a flea!

There's nothing we can do about where this world is heading towards. Nothing.

I am not afraid.
Love you my Dearest Man!

I've always detested Nancy Grace from the first moment I ever saw her on CourtTV. I was appalled that they gave her a show on her own. I *knew* something like this would happen. Not this specifically, but something bad and tragic... and that it would be her fault. She's a lawyer, not a journalist.
Sep. 16th, 2006 09:48 pm (UTC)
she defends herself for the suicide
Most of us are going to dislike her even more, because I just saw a new video where she defends herself for the suicide.

I will never again watch Courttv again, when she's on!

I think Nancy Grace should be pulled from the air. And never be on any television station.

Re: melinda duckett
I remember when I was a child, and some other kid would say something nasty to me, I'd cry out, Sticks and stones will break my bones,
but words will never hurt me.

How untrue that was, because sticks and and stones do break bones, but word can possibly destroy us, and maybe even kill us.

I want her off the air, too!
