Someone Tell Me Why I Shouldn't Love Nancy Grace
Court TV, Headline News ^ | 3/30/2005 | withteeth/vanity

I love her new show, and find that I can watch it with the sound off just to enjoy her facial expressions. Her interview of Jesse Jackson the other day was priceless, as she couldn't help herself mocking him about Michael Jackson.

On the other hand, I can imagine that some people don't like her, and I was wondering why.

She has such perfect style! There's something in her nature that exaggerates everything for the camera, like an actor, but she's sincere.

I have watched it a couple of times and she is hilarious in conducting interviews.

Generally speaking, I have a problem with trial-by-media (even more so with conviction-by-media) but other than that Nancy Grace is OK.

To each their own, but I have trouble listening to her whiny voice and biased statements. She is like a female O'Reilly, but not as bright or pithy.

Other than denying some village of its idiot, having her at CNN is great. But I digress.

Ummm because if you love her, and it is not reciprocated, that's when restraining orders happen.

I'm just sayin... ;0)

Further to that: Grace is a Flaming Liberal...but tries to hide it as best she can to save her career.

You can take that to the bank!!!

Heh heh heh... I'm lucky that way. One day, when the cops dig up my yard, no one's going to say "He always seemed so quiet, so nice... we just can't believe it"

Nope. M neighbors will say "Yeah, we knew there was somethin mighty peculiar 'about that guy..."

Doubtful.

OK, I'm going to bet that Nancy gave that money to Hillary's senate campaign because she knew that Hillary was going to win.

She probably contributed to what's his name too. Remember, she's a lawyer!

I find her to be one of the dumbest people I've ever met. She once asked me the same question twice in a row -- not badgering, mind you -- she simply forgot she had just asked the very same question.

I hope her show isn't that bad.

Probably a regional thing. She was being loyal, despite herself.

I'm willing to forgive.

Okay, this will be unkind but what do Nancy Grace, Dr. Laura, Judge Judy and Hillary all have in common?

P.S. I'm not willing to answer it.

P.S.S. Hillary's name was added so there would be no mistake as to the answer.

Speaking as a female I like her style of "how stupid do you think we all are" when talking about defense lawyers on court tv.

I also have seen her out in the field on interveiws and she comes across as really down to earth in a common sense way of thinking.

I think that makes her appealing to those who enjoy her.

Like she makes facial gestures that say "duh how can you not think we get it".

I have just started watching her on is it CNN? But got to first know her this past year on Court Tv.

For updated National news CNN is now my fave and have just started watching lately. Fox is to many people Yakking and amped on Java for my midnight lifestyle.

She is a bitter woman who believes that every defendant is guilty. She was scarred by the murder of her fiance and hates all defendants.

Exactly right. I didn't know about the fiance though so that gives me more compassion for her. She was insisting Kobe Bryant was guilty even after all of the problems with the accuser started coming to light.

And she gets angry and short with anyone who points such facts out to her.

Gee, I'm not getting any younger myself and I recall the last time my heart went "bumpity bump".

It was two weeks after getting married and ended with an aortic dissection.....

Beware of those palpitations my friend! ; )

That's one of the qualities I like about her. She has a prosecutorial mindset. Fine with me. All the rest of the lawyers on Cable TV have a Defense Attorney mentality. We need more like Grace.

I heard Max Robbins of Broadcasting and Cable mag, say that both the producer and makeup artist put in for
transfers after working with her for two days.

I've heard radio talk show host Howie Carr say that in his brief TV career, he was at the same station as BO,
(Boston) and the remote crew hated to go out with BO on a story.

I love Nancy Grace,too, and I am a happily married Mom.
Nancy cuts to the quick and gets it right on legal issues. I was very moved by her personal story, she went to Law School because her fiancé was murdered right before her wedding. As a prosecutor in the Atlanta DA's office ahe NEVER lost a murder trial.
Part of her appeal is that she is a first rate first class DQ (Drama Queen)who communicates her emotion and convictions.
Her politics is a shame, but she has been wonderful on the Jacko case and in pleading on Terri's behalf.
She went so far as to say "Don't you ever pull the tubes on me. I want to be a burden"
