Nancy Grace never ceases to amaze me. She is the consummate control freak – from controlling the answers guests give, to threatening to silence the microphone of guests, to stopping guests when a response is not what she was looking for so she can chide them for taking an opposing view.
Lately, I have noticed Nancy taking her controlling manner to new levels – levels I never thought possible.
She, I believe, is more into the sensational side of kidnappings, missing individuals, and murder investigations versus an honest, unbiased pursuit of the truth.<br><br>
Case in point, the Holly Bobo case. As most people know, Holly supposedly was abducted in her front yard by someone in camouflaged hunting gear, while her brother watched from the kitchen window.
Last Thursday, Deborah Norville was sitting in for Nancy as her guest host and her entire show was dedicated to the Bobo case. Even though the case is very upsetting to many, Deborah did a wonderful job as host. She did not rudely interrupt anyone – nor did she put someone down for taking an opposing viewpoint.
What is interesting though is with Holly still missing, Nancy Grace did not dedicate one minute on this case on her next two shows – last Friday and yesterday. That just does not make sense to me.
Thousands of people are in the dense woods looking for Holly – these daily events are both newsworthy as fodder for investigative journalism shows like Nancy Grace and Issues with Jane Velez-Mitchell – more so for the Jane Velez-Mitchell show because she focuses on what she calls the “War on Women”. Whether or not the family is involved or if Holly was truly abducted by a stranger – this case sure would qualify under Jane’s “War on Women coverage”. So I ask, why is Jane not even covering this news worthy story”? Is someone at CNN requesting or insisting that the story not be covered?
Pieces of evidence are being found but the police are not divulging anything. The family has lawyered up and they are saying nothing. This time period is critical to finding Holly – dead or alive.
Holly could have been kidnapped and might be held hostage as a sexual object to her abductor – on the other hand, she could be in the lake a few miles from her house. In either regard, giving attention to the case on a national network show could be critical in having individuals call in with any bit of information that could help solve this case.
Why is Nancy ignoring this case? True, her last two shows have covered other current cases but one of the shows was focusing more on a two or three year old case.
I think Nancy is so perplexed about the possible outcome and the potential guilty parties, including family members, that she is intentionally avoiding any coverage – not even posting a photo of Holly and stating that she is still missing and if anyone has any information to call the TBI or local police and posting the phone numbers, email accounts, twitter accounts, or Facebook pages.
Because the family has not been eliminated as either person’s of interest or suspects, Nancy does not know what direction to go – she cannot attack anyone with an opposing view because she has not solidified her own position – and this poses a conundrum for Nancy. As a result, she hides from the case and jumps to an old case that she has a firm position on and she now is focused on a missing young mother from Maine whose car was found in another state with this mother’s young daughter inside.
Nancy is the most arrogant journalist on television. She acts more like a prosecuting attorney than a neutral host. She saves her strongest venom for guest defense attorneys who try to explain various defense strategies for people Nancy believes committed a crime – even though they have yet to be found guilty.
Nancy loves covering stories where the victims are young, blonde, white, and very beautiful – i.e. Elizabeth Smart, Natalie Holloway, Madeleine McCann, Jessica Lynch, and others – now Holly Bobo.
Why is Nancy claming up on the Bobo case – after all she is beautiful, blonde, white, and the cousin of a popular country music star Whitney Duncan – also beautiful, blonde, and white.
Nancy is being out of character and I am curious as to why?
