    Sick burn Mr. Stewart...sick burn.

    Nancy Disgrace is the vilest in a vile business...I don't know how she sleeps at night.

    Very apt, Mr. Stewart. (none / 0) (#2)

    Nancy Grace is a parasite, a parasite who makes tapeworm seem the lesser of two evils.

    and her producers high-fiving when the story of the horrors in Cleveland broke...another 6 months of content!  Leeches of misery.

    ...most of the on air media had the same sentiment.  Christ, they are still milking Boston for every last drop.

    The others are just as vile and IMO, more so in that they act like they aren't bottom feeders using others misery and fear to put food on the table.  At least with NG you know what you are getting.  

    The others are passive aggressive in their vileness.  We know what probably happened in that house, we don't need a fricken detailed account of how each young girl was abused.  They act like they care, yet no one is filtering deeply disturbing sexual abuse, even though it occurred when two of them were 14.  It's sick, and it can't be healthy for the victims to know the humiliating details of their ordeal are font page 'news'.

    NG is the rest of them, without the the mask.

    I wonder if Nancy has ever defended what she does as "journalism".  

    But at least the mainstream media will move on to the next car crash relatively quickly...Nancy squeezes this rotten fruit to the very last drop, then sucks on the pit.  I agree it's the same sh*t, but Nancy really kicks it up a notch.  I don't know if that's more honest or just more exploitive.

    We've all got our hobbies and interests, but I seriously worry about people who lap up every sick detail of stories like this.  Like the people who fetishize serial murderers and stuff.  It's uber-creepy.

    ... given that this black widow spider has been on the air since she first covered Joan of Arc's trial and subsequent burning at the stake, there are apparently one helluva lot of Übercreeps out there in our country.

    ... decried our media's obsession with "Dirty Laundry," and lamented that "All She Wants to Do Is Dance."

    That, for the most part, his warnings have gone unheeded in the ensuing three decades since these songs were first recorded, really doesn't reflect well upon our collective evolution as both a society and a culture.


    LOL! It's pretty hard to lampoon someone ... (none / 0) (#6)

    ... who is, more often than not, her own best parody. But John Stewart certainly took his best shot last night, and nailed that wretched excuse of humanity to the wall.

    We were flying to L.A. yesterday and missed his show, so thank you very much for posting this.

    As for the bit, I laughed out loud.  Maybe I should have cried?  I guess she can be lampooned all the way to the bank.

    Wait til she finds out that OJ's asked for a new trial on his conviction for armed robbery and kidnapping.

    What happened in Vegas stays in Vegas for eight to twenty-five -- or so we were led to believe.

    I swear, OJ's saga has to be THE cautionary tale of toxic karma for our times. A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, this man had everything going for him in his life -- skills, intelligence, looks, charm, charisma, family and fortune -- until his own grievously misguided ego compelled him to throw it all away with both hands and a shovel, and then bury it with a backhoe.

    "He's baa-ack ...!"

    If it's true and she sucks youth out of trial tragedy, she will become a blastula :)
