TOPIC: Media coverage of trials
#171409
Media coverage of trials 1 Week, 6 Days ago Karma: 51
Not just sex trials (the current football coach one is a bad example); media covers every gory nasty detail of the prosecution, helping it by lurid language and colour details, and hardly touches on the defence which is anyway boring (I didn't do it). Jurors go home, watch TV, get the awful side confirmed, often including tears, sobbing accounts - and return to give a guilty verdict as media has instructed them. Isn't this a disgraceful abuse of process? Not that any judges seem to care.

Watching the footie coach trial the media angle is SO obvious. All they want is a good story. Lots of tears, misery and buggery, please.

It continues - word by word description of dramatic and tragic evidence from an accuser. Not a word about the cross examination. Is this right?
