There should be a picture of Nancy Grace next to the word 'hypocrite' in the dictionary. That's because in Objection, the self-righteous talk show host scorns all those who profit off crime without any hint of self-awareness. Hello! Your entire television career has been built on exploiting and sensationalizing horrific acts. (If you need any proof, just watch her revolting interview with Elizabeth Smart on YouTube.) It's unfortunate that her sanctimonious tone drowns out parts of the book that I agree with like support for the death penalty, tightening rape-shield and Son of Sam laws and having the jury see autopsy and crime scene photos. If you ask me, Grace is just a slick corporate version of the guy selling "Free O.J." shirts outside the courthouse.
