Why nothing about Shawna Forde on cable news today?
I didn't expect a huge push, but I thought I'd see something.

2. Probably because there's no news..........
There's always a quiet time between the arrest and the arraignment.

Don't worry - no one forgot her....................

10. I know it was in the papers
And I know what facts are out there. I'm talking about TV. If it doesn't make TV, it might as well never have happened.

12. Sorry if I'm being insufficiently gracious
I appreciate the effort. I'm just specifically interested in what TV coverage the story's gotten. Thanks anyway. :hi:

4. Uh, innocent until proven guilty
So, uh, they're not going to sensationalize this by, you know, trying the case in the media. Wouldn't be fair to the defendant. Don't want to, er, rush to judgment.

Nope, I can't see Nancy Grace saying this, either.

13. Seems like the woman is always in the middle of trouble:
http://www.heraldnet.com/article/20090222/NEWS01/702229...

snip
Forde was born in Everett and wound up in foster care as a toddler. Her adoptive mother, who was interviewed for this story on the condition that her name not be published, said Forde was deeply troubled when she joined her family at 4. The girl became a source of turmoil, repeated mental health treatment efforts and attempts at intervention, she said. Forde was taken into state custody when she turned 12 after being convicted of burglary.

"She had sticky fingers from Day One," the woman said, recounting how Forde at 7 stole a diamond necklace valued at several thousand dollars from family friends during a dinner visit at their home. snip

14. Yikes.
I'm guessing her early childhood was not much fun. Sad.
