Nancy is the most annoying newscaster because she is mean!!! Goodbye, my loser!!! angry <img border="0" alt="[Rant]" title="" src="graemlins/rant.gif" /> Matt

Did she finally get fired????

Where's the party?!!!!

Nancy Grace is/was one of the worst people to ever land such a lofty position on any such network. She was worse than being "mean." She was short-sighted, myopic, ignorant, dumb, crass (not in a good way), a buffoon, and a disgrace to all women reporters and newscasters. And she was a bit scary looking.

good riddance

I don't watch the news, hardly at all. Maybe, sometimes on the weekend. I like interviews on T.V., like entertainment. And, I usually get that on a local, Orange County station. I, also, watch positive things like PBS T.V., and sometimes sports. Reading is more pleasant. Playing songs, listening to music, exercise, talking to people, doing things with my congregation(Jewish) like concerts and dinners; Going to movies. Mostly, I'm busy with so many things. I always try to have lots of sunshine in my life, so-to-speak. smile

Mike , great points. So much of the media is posionous and beyond negative. And people wonder why so many are depressed? Its amazing to me how a few horrible stories will literally receive hours of coverage each day while other meaningful and positive stories never receive one second of attention. It scares me that the population, as a whole, isnt questioning why crime shows have become so prevalent as a form of entertainment? It's clear to me that if these actions were happening to yourself, or any loved ones or friends, it wouldnt be so entertaining ofcourse. I also think some of these shows are racist and serve to reinforce stereotypes with white audience viewers. These shows, more examples of our lowest common denominator "mass " culture.

Its so sad that peoples misfortunes,violence,and

dispair have become a prime source of entertainment for many in our country.

Yes, raspberrywine, and I think that the T.V. shows could be better. Like, "What's good about life? Does everyone just work, or do they do other things. Is their tone of language always serious?" I have to admit, I mostly watch comedy shows, because people seem a little more normal with serious and light things happening in their lives. I love the Seinfeld series, and they show it on the weekends. Jerry still does stand-up comedy. But, I don't watch too much of the others.

When I watch Rita Cosby, She always seems one sentence away from badly needing a shot from her inhaler. But in defense of these programs, sometime you have to interrupt your guests when they start rambling because of tight time constraints and commercial breaks...Stay on topic!

"Seinfeld" was always hit and miss with me. One funny scene, followed by one clunker scene...The bottom line is, I never really cared about any of those strange self-absorbed characters, so I didn't care what they were up to each week.

Shows like "Friends", "Frasier" and "Scrubs" had/have characters written so that you can identify with and like...and care what happens to them.

"Seinfeld" gets all this myopic hype for a couple of classic episodes or scenes, but if you stand back and look, it was a pretty sporadic uneven show.

I'm sorry, but...oh, what a piece of TRIPE that article is!

Here's the REAL story about the murder of Nancy Grace's fiance...which she alternately recalls as having taken place in 1980, as well as in 1981, when she says it happened in the article you cite. But it actually happened in 1979...not 1981, not 1980. (If your fiance were murdered, wouldn't the precise year it happened be etched forever on your memory? But she can't even seem to recall THAT detail correctly.)

Her fiance was NOT killed by a mugger he didn't know. It was a vengeance murder, by someone who thought her fiance had gotten him fired from a job. And that person had no known criminal record, and might have been mentally retarded. In any case, he was a few sandwiches short of a picnic.

That doesn't make the story any less tragic. But it sure differs from the version Nancy Grace tells today. She says today that the killer went through a lengthy appeals process and that being witness to that process helped motivate her to become a lawyer because she saw how justice was not done. That's not true. The man was convicted of the murder and he never appealed. He is in prison today and has been for 27 years.

Nancy Grace tries to make the story of how she got to be where she is today a treacly story of triumph over tragedy. But it's not the way she pictures it...not by a long shot.
