I get CTV, CNN, Fox, and MSNBC.

I will watch whichever one somebody doesn't get, so maybe we can "cross reference" what the reporters are saying and try to get an accurate account of what is going on?

I hope the Prosecution has a big story board of all of his odd behavior and comings and goings during the months between Laci going "missing" and the time of his arrest. Would be a nice package to group together for a jury.

Sounds good, but I won't be able to join in till I get home from work at 2:30PM CDT, they may be at lunch recess then. That was the case when I was following the Westerfield trial.

I wasn't thinking about the trial this morning and forgot to avoid driving downtown on my way to work...big mistake. Most of the news crews don't like parking their trucks and equipment in the dusty dirt lot, and are parking on and partially blocking several streets anyway...and the MPD, despite its threats, doesn't have the balls to tow a CNN truck on live national television. The police will write tickets for illegally parked trucks, but agencies like Fox News and CNN will gladly pay a few hundred dollars a day in fines to get that "right up in front" view of the courthouse during their live feeds. I just wish they'd do a change of venue on this thing and move it somewhere else.

I want to see Peterson convicted more than most, but does this case REALLY need to still be national news? Is Scott Peterson killing his wife really any worse than the lady who smothered and killed her newborn in a south Modesto motel room recently? So why is one national news, and the other unknown even to most locals?

Good point, Arthalion.

Seventeen homicides in Modesto, a city of 200,000+ so far this year. Three of those children. Three children murdered in 2002 under the age of two. It's a pretty sad commentary of our society.

Scott Peterson is front page news this morning, and the story of the other homicides is relagated to Section B of the Modesto Bee.

Speaking of "boards", MSNBC loves them and they started one today of "the players".

I gotta get out of here soon to go to work but I just saw a Prosecutor (Valerie somebody) interviewed and she said that Mitochondrial DNA has been accepted by the California Courts many times before and Gergos knows it!! This is gonna be an attack the Police and Investigators trial. HOWEVER, the MPD and all the Investigators have been extremely methodical and careful in this case. They have seemingly taken this case personally. Geragos and McAllister are in for a real fight because their constant picking is going to become very irritating to the Jurors and probably the Judge after a while.!!

Thanks for the ping. Wish it was televised rather than rely on reporters coming out sporadically to report what they've heard, adding their own spin.

When asked on Fox whether he thought Peterson was guilty, Mark Furman said the fact that Scott appeared to be looking frantically for his wife after only 1-1/2 hours upon his return from a fishing trip is suspect -- coupled with the fact that the house didn't appear to be broken into.

May I asked what station you are all watching? Perhaps Court TV will have the most coverage.

CTV: Oh, he wanted her OUT until Amber testifies.

But the judge has just ruled that she can stay in the courtroom as long as she doesn't tell Amber what is going on.

My CourtTV has gone "LIVE", as they do when there's a case garnering such huge attention. It says LIVE, anyway. I'll have to wait and compare what I'm hearing to what other posters say they're hearing.

Usually they run tape delays on our cable channel as we're out west.

I thought that they were just running that old trial as a filler to free up airtime for the Peterson trial! Stupid! Who cares about a case that has already been tried and convicted?

Thanks. Claudia Cowen saying both sides will present DNA evidence today. No word on whether Frey will testify and no wire tap evidence will be introduced. Attorney saying either the prosecutors have a problem with the wire tap or may use Frey instead.

I haven't been watching it so I don't know how far along they are in the case. I've been watching Fox and MSNBC when I get home till Crier comes on at 4PM. Maybe I'll e-mail them and see what's up with that. Hope they don't air it during Amber's testimony.

Right.

I found this info to pass along on another message board:


1)"Fox Stan Goldman just reported PRELIM STARTED.
Beth Karas reporting Pros. won't bring in gps or wiretaps at this hearing. MG stood up and said he wants GPS at this hearing otherwise he can't use it at trial. Judge disagreed.

Judge at prelim will be Judge for trial. Any ruling he makes here will stand at trial.

Beth says that MG wanted to question the science of dog tracking. Judge said it's well established science but will hold a partial kelly hearing to ensure dogs were properly trained and procedures followed.

Wiretaps won't be used at this hearing. Calls between Amber and Scott can be used since she consented to the taping of her calls.

MG says he's received late dna discovery (from pros.) and he can't cross examine until he's had a chance to review. Pros. says it is delaying tactic. There will be no delay.



2)"I was watching Court TV tonight and Gloria Gomez from KOVR reported two very interesting things. First of all, they found reddish paint transfer on Scott's boat that matches the paint on the buoy markers in the bay. Second, right now, the police have the area around buoy marker 4 and possibly 5 roped off and no one is allowed to fish near or enter into the area for any reason. Also, Gloria Gomez was told that if a body was put in that area that it would wash up precisely where Laci's body washed up."
