Over the past several years I have become more and more disenchanted with Nancy Grace.
I am very please with the topics on her show but I am very disappointed with how she treats some guests. It is almost as though she believes she is Judge and Jury and she is prosecuting some individuals during her show.
To a degree, some of that is showmanship and some of it is even acceptable at times, but for the majority of the time, when Nancy determines in her mind that an individual who is either a person of interest (POI) or even a suspect in a crime, she becomes relentless in trying to proving to her audience that the person in question is guilty and there is no one who can prove her different.
Some of her viewers adore her. If a jury was made up of avid followers of Nancy Grace, almost every person on trial in America would be found guilty – just based on Nancy’s comments – her attacks – her unwaivering relentless pursuit. When she says “unleash the lawyers”, what she really means is “You are a guest on my show, Mr. Defense Attorney, but keep in mind that if you take exception to anything I say about a person who has been charged of a crime, I will personally take you down and I will embarrass you and I will humiliate you and I will quickly shift gears to another lawyer on the panel, ideally a prosecuting attorney who will back up my position and make you feel even worse.”
As a result of her nasty disposition, I feel it is time for CNN/HNN to consider finding a suitable replacement to replace Nancy Grace. I am aware that if she is replaced, then the show name will have to change as well, but lets just stick to the discussion of finding a suitable replacement.
Nancy has an almost cult following and that is fine, but I really feel for everyone Nancy has belittled over the years. Many of the people she berates might be guilty, but that does not give her the lattitude to everything possible to be rude to them.
Jean Casarez, who has filled in for Nancy, has done a wonderful job each time and yet, she has a human side that Nancy appears to be lacking. Jean asks questions but with a more reasonable tone to her voice and to my knowledge she has never threatened to cut off the mike of anyone she has interviewed.
So, here we are, and we are now at the point in my blog where I would like to ask everyone here to take a one question poll where everyone can choose someone who they would prefer to take over the Nancy Grace Show. There are 5 names of individuals who, I feel, could do a wonderful job as Nancy’s replacement. In addition, you can enter someone else as well. There are two more choices; one choice is that you simply want someone else – actually anyone else – to replace Nancy, and you can choose Nancy herself because you feel that Nancy is irreplaceable.
