Was Paris a Victim of "The Nancy Grace Effect"?

6/14/2007 3:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

CNN Headline News anchor Nancy Grace has been one of the harshest critics of Sheriff Lee Baca's handling of Paris Hilton, but did she have a hand in getting Paris transferred last night?

Grace slammed Hilton and her "medical condition" on her June 12 show, saying, "I want to find out how attention deficit disorder, mild and very recent depression, dry skin and a bout of claustrophobia can land you in a privileged unit reserved for the acutely medically ill. I don't understand that."

Today, TMZ asked Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore if Grace or any other person in the media had anything to do with the Sheriff's decision. Whitmore told us, "No. The Sheriff, after he gets consultation and receives the best information available, makes the decision."

Hard to blame him if it did though -- Grace can be kind of scary.

Nancy I do not care one way or another about Paris Hilton but it was a lot more than what you are stating. I think you are being too tough on her...I pray she comes through this ok and a better person than before!

Nancy Grace is turning into an old biddy - biased and nasty. I used to love her and her program - - she does do some good, especially with the predator situations and missing and exploited children. I will give her the props. BUT, in this instance...she is way off base, not doing her homework on panic attacks and ADD. Adderall is NOT a stimulant to patients of ADD - it's exactly the opposite!. It's only a stimulant to people WITHOUT ADD and acts like speed.

I think the sheriff is a just and compassionate man and would do the same for everyone.

Nancy, you did great on the Michael Jackson trial - BUT, this wacko is STILL out - found not guilty ----- he was never in jail...judge treated him like royalty - and where was AL Sharpton and his cronies crowing about child molestion?

Nancy, don't jump on the Hate Paris Bandwagon to get rating ....Greta Van Susteren was IN the Courtroom and close-by Paris and she reported Paris did cry out for her mother BECAUSE she wanted a last hug and the deputies drug her away and that's why Paris exclaimed that "it wasn't fair that she couldn't hug her Mother good-bye" - not that she was a crybaby, whining for her Mother. So, this time, Nancy Grace, save face and get your facts straight . Maybe watch Greta once in a while and see a Pro work!!!!

Gotta love those 'analysts' who attack everything. It's a tired act (most of the time), but in this case, we don't know Hilton's past mental disorder status. Depression can be a helluva thing, too. I definitely don't think she should get preferential treatment.

Grandpa Hilton helped to fund this site just like he helped to fund Lee Baca's sheriff campaign. But TMZ, of course, won't tell you about that.

Not defending Paris but Nancy Grace should be in jail also she is responsible for driving that mother of the missing kid last year to commit suicide because she hounded and hounded her with accusations that she had something to do with the child's disapperance.
