It's Not Over Yet


The verdict came in, Jodi Arias was found guilty of First Degree Murder.

All the Phoenix stations went wall to wall with the coverage (remaining calm while doing do) of the verdict. As expected, none of the networks broke into programming with coverage.

The cable nets were all over it and no network was more sad to see a verdict than HLN. Not because of of the guilty verdict, but because their obsession with the trial that has boosted their ratings is coming to an end.

But, there is still the death penalty phase and that should eek out a few more days of coverage for Nancy Grace and her gang of hooligans over at HLN.

After the verdict was read Grace had these very objective words to say about the trial and the people outside the courtroom cheering the verdict:  

"This is not bloodthirsty revenge's cries of joy. It's not that. It's the fear that justice would be snatched out of our hands. It's the fear that Travis' murder would go un-avenged. It is the fear that our system would fail as it has in the past. But today, our system, Lady Justice, triumphs."

The single best (although not politically correct tweet) about HLN and Nancy Grace's coverage of the verdict:
