Okay, 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 …
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.

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