Riding the dead mother bounce

Grace Is Focused Despite Woman's Suicide

Anybody who believes Nancy Grace was chastened by the suicide of a young mother following their tough television encounter doesn't know Nancy Grace.
I wonder why she won't back down?

With critics suggesting Grace's relentless focus on the case is cruel to Duckett's family, virtually all of Wednesday and Thursday's shows were devoted to Trenton's disappearance. "Nancy Grace" averaged 689,000 viewers the first three days of the week, comfortably above the show's third quarter average of 534,000 viewers, according to Nielsen Media Research.

Maybe the AP should hire reporters who do a little research. This guy is still repeating junk from her discredited publicity machine.

Grace went to college to be an English teacher, but her life changed in 1980 when her fiance was killed in a mugging by a man out on parole.

Just for the record: not a mugging, the killer was not on parole.

A few voices of journalistic integrity.

Grace's Interview Left a Stain on CNN

The sad fact of life is that ratings grabs are natural when a show isn't at the top of its heap competitively. We hope that next time, someone in authority will intervene before Ms. Grace can disgrace herself-and the network-again.

More Nancy Grace: Oh brother

The story of Nancy Grace points up an enduring lesson in television: Good ratings mean never having to say you're sorry.
