Zimmerman Verdict: The MSM’s Work Here is Finished, Right?

nancy_grace_616Okay, here’s something you wouldn’t expect from a Hollywood trade magazine. An honest appraisal of a kick-the-cat bomb-thrower like Nancy Grace.

Note: In fairness, the article is about the entirety of inane Zimmerman cable media coverage, but I see Grace as a sort of one-woman movement for biased liberal stupidity, so …

Variety:

Shakespeare’s misunderstood line “let’s kill all the lawyers” can be viewed somewhat differently in this summer of the George Zimmerman trial, as attorneys crowd the airwaves, making their bids to become the next Nancy Grace.

There might be a more unseemly, nauseating spectacle on TV than HLN — where it’s not uncommon to tune in and find a half-dozen so-called legal experts yelling at each other — but it’s hard to think of where.

All the cable news networks have seized on the trial of Zimmerman, accused of murdering Florida teen Trayvon Martin, with its obvious racial and political overtones. As the Huffington Post observed with rare understatement, during an especially busy stretch in the news — including the tragic death of firefighters in Arizona, turmoil in Egypt and Nelson Mandela’s failing health — “the cable news networks have proven extremely committed to the George Zimmerman trial over the past week, often to the exclusion of nearly every other major story.” …

Still, nothing has been more noxious than the wall-to-wall attention from HLN, the network formerly known as Headline News, whose toxic avenger, Grace, and Jane Velez-Mitchell often seem to be impersonating someone trying to project to the back of a high-school gymnasium without a microphone. HLN is so determined to stay connected to the case, it leaves photos and “GEORGE ZIMMERMAN ON TRIAL” inset in the screen even during commercial breaks. …

Grace has become a poster child for this sort of overheated coverage, turning every criminal case into a trial of the century.

“Bombshell tonight! In the last hour, the courtroom explodes!” Grace thundered as her program began Thursday, which would be news, if she didn’t pretty much begin her show that way every night. … [read]

I think Nancy and the gang’s work here is finished. It really doesn’t matter whether George Zimmerman is found guilty or not. I mean his life is so over, right? From now times infinity, wherever he goes, he will be the racist white guy who murdered little 12-year-old-hardly-out-of-his-boy-shorts Trayvon Martin.

Wait. He hasn’t gone home and set himself on fire yet.
