Nancy Grace is an unwatchable POS
Nancy Grace is pure filth. This is well known. One of the best examples of how trashy she is was when she interviewed Elizabeth Smart and asked her about the abduction and rape which was a topic previously agreed to being off limits.

The latest example of how trashy Nancy Grace is a "beating caught on tape." Some girls posted a video on facebook about a fight. The fight wasn't much of anything, but Nancy Grace wanted to bring it up on her show. So what does she do? She puts herself in the middle of 4 videos of girls beating each other. The video of the fight is one of the videos shown. The other 3 videos are all actual harsh beatings.

Here is the video: http://cnn.com/video/?/video/crime/2011/04/07/ng.facebo...

Nancy Grace is garbage. :argh:

7. I think her point is that the sky is NOT always blue.

3. No, I knew it.
I just wanted to remind everyone else. If I can affect the google index just a little bit, it's worth it.

4. I'm not sure if people know this, but....
Televisions have channels that are not cable news on them and televisions have remotes.

5. She is in entertainment, as are the vast majority of shows on the tube
That includes commentators too.

8. She can have all the bad behavior she wants
If nobody watched her show and they took her off the air.

I refuse to watch these talking head idjits.

14. It is all about the ratings...nothing else
If bad behavior draws viewers, we will see more of it.

24. Ah but it isn't.
The ratings only matter because they are shorthand created for advertisers so they could target viewership. We can also go after the advertisers directly ala Beckerhead.

13. Funny, but that's the same argument that......
many conservatives have for Glenn Beck.

15. It is a green eyeshade game, all about ratings
Whether it is Glenn Beck or Rachael. Beck IIRC lost his advertisers and ratings so his show is going away...a very good thing IMO, but it would not have happened if the ratings stayed up.

9. She hasn't disappeared yet?
I suspect when her show starts burning out, she will disappear unexpectedly and we will see the headlines-

Blonde, white, rich girl disappears. Rumors are, her show sucked!

10. One clever DUer refers to her as
"the flaming nostrils of justice." I thought it was just so apropos.

12. Then Don't Watch Her
I find I am able to lower my blood pressure considerably simply by not watching people like Nancy Grace.

Since she is completely irrelevant anyway, I don't miss a thing -- not a thing! -- if I simply refuse to watch her.

16. You know, I've often wondered how fine the line is
Edited on Thu Apr-14-11 09:57 AM by notadmblnd
with people like her? She claims to be a righteous advocate for those who have been victimized by predators, yet she preys on them too. You can actually see the glee in her eyes when she's doing it. Like she is getting her rocks off. That to me is just as sick and twisted at the original predator. Has anyone here ever given it a thought?

17. I have and you're right.

What she did to Elizabeth Smart was inexusable. She knew she wasn't supposed to bring up certain topics, but she did it anyway and Smart eventually said something about it.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5x8ARIxg51I

Look at the description of the video:

"what a crazy woman, it's like she delights in having other people talk about troubling things.

how does she have a show? we need a petition started to get filth like this off the primetime 'news' stations."

25. That would be a good idea ... if there were any news in the USA.
There isn't. Thus there are no news shows to remove her nostrilship from.

26. I find her insufferable
She has a very abrasive personality, at least on the air. I don't know what she is like in private.
