Nancy Grace Demands To Know Who Shoved Houston Under The Water

Nancy Grace has long thrived on the carrion of high-profile murders and disappearances. Sometimes, however, there simply is not time to lose to distort facts into a juicy murderous tale. Thus, when Whitney Houston died, Grace was virtually hyperventilating in fashioning the death as a presumptive murder. Grace demanded to know who pushed Houston under the water in her tub or gave her the lethal dose of drugs or both.

Grace drew an instant comparison between Houston’s death to those of Michael Jackson and Anna Nicole Smith. She then grew impatient with the suggestions that she may have simply died from mixing prescription drugs with alcohol: “I’d like to know who was around her, who, if anyone gave her drugs, following alcohol and drugs, and who let her slip, or pushed her, underneath that water? Apparently no signs of force or trauma to the body. Who let Whitney Houston go under her water?”

Of course nothing is more immediately suspicious to a trained eye than “no signs of force or trauma to the body.”

Grace’s snarling signature analysis has been an embarrassment for both journalists and lawyers alike. Her show requires a steady fare of murdered and missing victims as well as an open hostility to concepts of due process. However, CNN has continued to show an equally craven desire for ratings, including incorporating Grace on news shows as a legal analyst despite her history of unethical and abusive conduct both a prosecutor and later as an anchor.

Grace obviously appeals to a rather sad segment of our society who relish her vigilante-like take on criminal cases. However, CNN can hardly criticize rivals like Fox when it offers Grace nightly as a legal analyst. What is rather pathetic was CNN’s effort to reclaim some credibility after serving up this type of low-grade sensationalism. After Grace’s comments, CNN news anchor Don Lemon emphasized that “[t]his is not CNN’s reporting. We don’t know that to be true.” That sounds a lot like “this is really not true, we just offer it up for the ratings.”

I know many of the folks at CNN and respect them. They deserve better as do the viewers. However, CNN has to decide whether it is a journalistic enterprise or just Dancing With The Stars with a news crawler.

  1. Having read this I thought it was very enlightening.
    I appreciate you taking the time and energy to put this content together.
    I once again find myself spending a significant amount of time both
    reading and posting comments. But so what, it was still worthwhile!

  2. Grace is a celebrity. Is it really so hard to believe that she’d suggest a crime happened here to stir up controversy? Her own boyfriend was murdered. She has every right to assume the worst, and if it doesn’t turn out to be so heinous, well then, better for all, but at least viewership was up, which is what CNN wants and gets.

  3. Never trust a spokesperson with a bent nose. The story in Texas is that one of her clients punched her out for lying about him. Anyone know if that is true? Why does she not fix it? Or is that a nose pout?

  4. Nancy Grace- America’s favorite one-woman lynch mob.

    Has she apologized yet to John and Patsy Ramsey, the Duke University lacrosse team, and all the other people she falsely accused of crimes?

    “Badges? We ain’t got no badges! We don’t need no badges! I don’t have to show you any stinking badges!”

    “Gee! Can you imagine that this disgusting waste of human DNA lost her job as a DA for prosecutorial misconduct? She does like to whip the rabble into a frothy lather & she does it very well.”

    What she, and Joke Judy and all those other TV lawyers do is destroy the credibility and quality of American justice while undermining the confidence in one of the great bastions against total chaos we have. They are speeding idiocracy on.”

    -Great comment on the purpose they serve!

    But, don’t blame them. The type of people who will do anything for fame and money are ready puppets for those at the top who want to spread the evil sickness of ignorance and fear in this nation. Get rid of Nancy Grace and Judge Judy today and you will get two equally competent puppets tomorrow.
