The media will do anything for viewers and ratings is right, the only thing you can do to stop it is to not watch it.The one thing to learn from this trial, the media will do anything for viewers and ratings. How do you hold them accountable for sensationalizing and essentially pressuring the state to hold a trial without infringing on their right to free speech though?
Same thing with the Jodi Arias case. It was a murder trial, that's it. That shit happens everyday, yet they forcefeed these high-profile trials down our throats for some reason. It's pretty dumb.I only half followed the other thread because Tanoomba and Dumar's retardation was practically unbearable, and I also don't really care how this trial turns out (hint: it'll be bad either way).
That said, it makes me absolutely sick that every second of this trial is being televised, analyzed, and repeated ad nausem. I just walked into the kitchen area at work where we have our big TV, and 1/3 of the office is standing there drinking coffee and gawking at it. What the fuck is wrong with the USA that justice has turned into fucking reality TV shows? I know this isn't the first time it's happened (Hi, O.J!) but it serously pisses me off. Cameras should NEVER be allowed into a real courtroom. Leave that shit for Judge Judy.
