Really? The Florida mother accused of killing her daughter has been all over the mainstream media for months. You do live in the shadows…

She has been found not guilty.

Good for her then.  Or not.  I don’t know.

And I don’t watch the news.  Especially not sensationalist media coverage of arbitrary criminal cases.

I respect that, for sure. I have not figured out how to get the news without the sensationalism. FYI, this is sensationally labeled O.J. two.

You can’t really.  Sensationalism makes ratings and ratings make money.  So, uh…..*shrugs*  I guess we’re screwed.

Yeah, but I’m crazy.  Plus, I don’t have cable or satellite, I get all my news online, and anymore I’m more concerned with making fun of society and stupid people than actual politics.

EDIT
Fixed a thing————y.

I am glad it’s over. I usually watch news because it entertains me and this kind of stuff simply bores the hell out of me.

Yes! I agree. Our media is pathetic. I wouldn’t really mind this sensationalism as much if the media actually did a good job on the “rest” of the news.

I didn’t get to see the evidence but the prosecution had an uphill case: 
1.  Lying and partying are not synonymous with killing one’s child.
2.  Not being able to determine the cause of death is a big problem in a murder case.
and the other reported evidence was purely circumstantial.

I thought she did it, but what I think doesn’t matter.  Proof beyond a “Reasonable Doubt” is a high standard,
the prosecution didn’t meet it, she walks!  The system works?

True. Lying (4 counts) does make one look suspicious, but it ain’t proof. I don’t know how she goes home now, after accusing her father of sexual abuse. That has to make dinner time a bit awkward.  Groups of people in Florida sure are good at stirring the country up.  rolleyes

There’s a reason Florida has its very own tag on Fark.

A bit awkward is an understatement, what the hell can she say, “sorry dad, you know I’m a pathological liar!”
