    Nancy Grace joined CNN’s Brooke Baldwin to discuss the Ferguson grand jury decision Wednesday afternoon and she had a lot to say about Officer Darren Wilson’s version of the story, which has finally come out through his testimony and interviews. According to her, the whole thing “doesn’t add up.” “When people say, it does not add up, I will tell you what doesn’t add up, these photos,” Grace said, holding up copies pictures of Wilson’s face after the shooting. “I’ve looked at a them, I’ve studied them, and I was expecting to see his face mangled.” She added, “He doesn’t...

    On the 39th anniversary of the 1975 slaying of Greenwich teenager Martha Moxley, the Kennedy scion accused of her murder is set to settle a slander lawsuit against television host Nancy Grace. In a stipulation of settlement filed in U.S. District Court in Hartford on Wednesday, legal counsel for Michael Skakel agreed to drop his case against the HLN pundit and fellow legal commentator Beth Karas for comments they made in a 2012 broadcast about DNA evidence near the scene of the crime. HLN parent companies Time Warner and Turner Broadcasting System were also named in the defamation suit and...

    FULL TITLE: 'Don't come out, whatever you hear': 12-year-old Detroit boy missing nearly two weeks claims stepmother hid him in the basement of his family's condo The stepmother of the 12-year-old Detroit boy missing for 11 days until being found in the basement of his father's home knew he was down there, police have revealed. Monique Dillard-Bothuell barricaded young Charlie Bothuell V behind boxes and told him 'not to come out, no matter what he hears,' the boy told police, according to court documents filed after she was arrested Thursday. Prosecutors also revealed the boy's body is covered in scars...

    The left loves to hate Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio, but one usually left-leaning TV host announced her gratitude to the country’s toughest sheriff. Sheriff Joe, Nancy Grace says, saved her life.Grace announced on her HLN program that Arpaio likely saved her life and the life of her children after stopping a New York man who had been harassing her with death threats. "I want to personally thank Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Arizona. I was apparently followed for four years by a bad New York man. He then repeatedly threatened my life. He was apprehended en route after quitting...

    A man arrested for Twitter threats against two news anchors might have been preparing to actually carry out the murders, according to authorities. David Lee Simpson was allegedly furious with Nancy Grace and Jane Velez-Mitchell, of Atlanta-based HLN, over their coverage of the Jodi Arias trial. Simpson, 48, apparently became obsessed with Arias, who was convicted in May of killing her boyfriend in Arizona in a case that received widespread media attention. Simpson, of Bath, N.Y., allegedly posted Twitter threats starting in June to tie Grace and Velez-Mitchell to a tree naked and leave them all night before slitting their...

    Nancy Grace is being accused of using racist language Tuesday in describing George Zimmerman’s freedom, saying he’s “driving through Taco Bell every night having a churro,” after the neighborhood community watchman was acquitted of murder charges in the Trayvon Martin shooting. Grace, a former prosecutor and the flagship personality on television network HLN, was incensed over Zimmerman attorney Mark O’Mara urging the jury to acquit his client and let him “get back to his life” during closing arguments last week in the Zimmerman trial. “Give Zimmerman back his life?” Grace said with incredulity on HLN on July 12, when closing...

    An anonymous reader points us to yet another bizarre on-air remark from Grace, dating back to Friday evening after the trial concluded and jury members began their deliberation. …“Let him get back to his life. Give him back his life. Give George Zimmerman back his life. … Give Zimmerman back his life? He’s out on bond driving through Taco Bell every night, having a churro. You know, long story short, he’s got his life. Who is going to give life back to Trayvon Martin? I find that, at the very least, a very poor choice of words.”Zimmerman is half-Hispanic. …
  • Nancy Grace Explodes At Zimmerman Friend

    Nancy Grace lost her cool today while waiting for the George Zimmerman verdict to come down. During another exchange with Zimmerman friend Frank Taaffe, Taaffe made the assertion that the jury is mostly on the side of acquittal, but there’s one holdout. Grace lit up and demanded to know where exactly Taaffe was pulling that statistic out of, and repeatedly shouted at him to explain as he kept going. At one point, she even cried “Oh, dear lord in heaven!” Taaffe argued that the state never successfully disproved Zimmerman’s self-defense claim, and told Grace he believes the jury is 5-1...

    Nancy Grace on Thursday got into an extremely heated debate with Frank Taaffe, a friend of George Zimmerman, over the series of events that led to the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. Taaffe argued that Zimmerman had a “legal right to carry” his firearm with him and was doing nothing wrong when he noticed a “suspicious” character. “He was a legal concealed weapons permit carrier,” he said. For some reason, Grace was baffled by the mention of a concealed weapons permit. “A legal concealed weapons carrier,” she shot back. “Did you just say that?” Taaffe reiterated that Zimmerman was...

    “It’s dangerous for America the way were doing this as a trial in the media with the whole nation as jury.” This observation about the trial of George Zimmerman for the murder of Florida teen Trayvon Martin in 2012 by MSNBC host Touré was as true when he made it, in March of last year, as it is today. Too few, it seems, have taken his advice to heart. Since the Zimmerman trial began, the instant analysis of the nationally televised case – meriting near wall-to-wall coverage on the cable news outlets – has not been favorable to the prosecution....

    The Atlantic Wire ^ | May 07, 2013 | Dashiell Bennett and Philip Bump
    In a bizarre television and spatial anomaly on CNN this morning, the blanket coverage of two true-crime stories led two news anchors to conduct an odd "satellite" interview from the very same parking lot, background traffic and all. The two suspects are Ashleigh Banfield of CNN and Nancy Grace of Headline News, who were updating viewers on the latest from the ongoing and increasingly ugly Cleveland kidnapping story. (Grace being TV's leading expert on deviant crime.) At first it seems like a normal TV "remote," as Banfield interviews Grace from another location. Then the channel's graphics alert viewers: both anchors...

    What do "Big Rig Bounty Hunters" and "Swamp People" on History Channel have in common? They both pummeled CNN and MSNBC's brand new shows' debuts last week in the ratings. CNN's attempt to mimic Fox News' hugely successful "The Five" with a five person panel show called (get to) The Point" seems to have crashed and burned in spectacular fashion. The week-long tryout at 10:00 PM ET, in place of an Anderson Cooper repeat, was dead last in cable news ratings, finishing behind CNNHLN and CNBC.

    The move of the Casey Anthony murder trial from the legal confines of a Florida court to the unrestrictive court of public opinion is a good opportunity to examine the way many media colleagues cashed in on the tragic death of a two-year-old girl. I confess to an addiction to news and information. As with all junkies, I run the risk of falling in with enablers and dealers who are more than willing to feed my jones, even to the point of overdose. The media pushers have a sick tool to measure precisely which stories hook the average news junkie...
