I am focused on Benghazi’s Victims today not Jody Arias’ victim.

If she is guilty of capital murder I trust she will be sentenced to death.

The needle of my Give-A-Sh!t Meter rests firmly against the peg. Nary a flutter.

    This is a case of “look, we’re 24/7 cable news and we’ve got air time to fill – find us a juicy murder, make sure there’s a pretty girl or child involved, either as victim or perp, we don’t care, and we’ll milk the crap out of it, play it till people start forming emotional attachments to the outcome. Ratings gold!” Pure Nancy Grace schtick, and the same reason the Casey Anthony murder case was presented as somehow being national news (it had a pretty girl AND a child).

The Arias Trial is a nothing burger…. She’s guilty, lets move on to important cases.

How long before people start screaming, “But she was just defending herself against an abusive boyfriend”?

Looks like the corrupt socialist media’s screaming headlines about arias (who cares about a local trial? – as they said about the horrors of kermit gosnell) to provide another shiny object to deflect attention from the REAL STORY OF THE DAY/WEEK/MONTH/YEAR: – the truth about Benghazi and the LIES AND COVER-UP of the accomplices to murder OBOZO and SHRILLARY- who BOTH did even worse than just slept through the 3AM call from Benghazi.

    You hit the nail on the head, but media hypocrisy is par for the course these days; And yes the golf metaphor is appropriate for the Administration’s Golfer-in-chief and his media lackeys.

I had to google Arias about an hour ago to see who the hell she is. Why should I care about some twit who stabbed her boyfriend? It’s such a freaking non-event in my life I can’t believe anyone would waste the time and space to report on it.

Consenting adults stuff. Both were creeps & perverts. It is just ashame everybody had to be subjected to it.

Po’Wittle Jodums. Girl thought she was gonna be Casey Anthony-2. Buuuuu-Byyeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee….!

I am glad, at least, that the prosecution got its conviction. There’s something fascinating about watching a sociopath in action, and I wondered what the jury would do. Apparently they listened closely.

An observation: she adamantly denied any premeditation on her part in the murder. Yet when she was interviewed by Fox immediately post-verdict, she went on and on about what her life would be like in prison would be like — down to her family genetics and their predisposition to long life.

This is a woman who plans things.

Too bad. Because besides the homicidal-sociopathic thing, she’s kind of cute.

Why is this a national story?

    You know, these kinds of sensationalistic trials have always been big, long, drawn-out stories with splashy headlines.

    This kind of thing goes back to the early 1900’s. It’s just the press then wasn’t completely corrupt, and didn’t use the story to try and hide a president’s COMPLETE fraud — down to his very being.

Another weird thing: she has very big hands.

Did you see her testimony when she started bawling? I thought there was a man hiding in the witness box reaching up with a tissue to wipe her nose.

Now the crazy manipulative b!tch is trying to psych the jury into giving her life instead of death by saying “Please just sentence me to death. I can’t bear the thought of life in prison.”

I say give her death.
Then let her live with it hanging over her head for the next 20 years while the system does its thing.

the Fourth Estate in the US has mutated into a Fifth Column

Nobody knows better than the legacy print and network media (LA Times, MY Times, Washington Compost, ABC, NBC, CBS, etc.) that the sun is setting on their business paradigm. Like drowning men grasping at anything, this helps them to justify their bias, based as it is on the errant notion that the liberal/progressive cause is so good, lying to achieve it is justified, i.e., the ends justify the means.

It’s liberal taqqiya.

    I meant to add, this is how they act en masse. On an individual basis, they know you don’t get that golden ticket to an administration job without first proving your fealty to the King.
