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.

Foot in Mouth Disease: Nancy Grace obviously shoots from the lip...before she knows the real truth. The wife of the LA Citty Attorney, Michelle D., was fined $187.00 for leaving the scene of an injury accident, driving without insurance and driving on a SUSPENDED license...no jail time. Where is the justice here? Or, is the incaracation of Miss Paris Hilton more sinister than that. Rumor has it, that the FBI is investigating the Mayor of LA and the City Attorney's Office re: the recent race riot (la raza) where known gangsters (criminal illegal aliens) hid behind women and children while throwing rocks and bottles at LA's finest. Was the excessive sentence and jailing of Miss Paris Hilton, just a ploy by the City Attorney and his ilk to get the media off his back for the crimes of early May? For your edification, this devise is know as the "Blackbird Effect:" When a public official is cought with his hand in the 'cookie jar' that PO will cause another stir of which will send the Media scrambling to the new story, thereby taking the 'heat' off himself. Akin to when there is a minor disturbance, a flock of Black Birds fly from one telephone wire to another. Nancy shame on you and your big mouth!

On Monday, City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo was the one apologizing for keeping quiet about a 2004 accident in which his wife crashed his city-issued vehicle -- while driving on a suspended license.

My opinion re: Paris Hilton's meltdown in jail is that she was withdrawing from a drug addiction. Now that she is being medicated with Valium or somesuch, she seems better able to cope. I'm surprised that noone thought of this scenario. She's obviously not a drinker (despite the DUI), but to do the things that she does in public, she must have had a very bad addiction to narotics or stimulants or both. Just one woman's opinion.

I think Nancy is right on the money. She says and asks the questions that most of us want to know, and gets answers. She knows exactly what she is doing and does it GREAT!!!
I watch her every night!

I certainly believe Nancy Grace's opinions and facts... . Court TV, some of their legal team had some influence on the judge's decision to make Paris go back to jail.

LMFAO!!

Oh yeah RIGHT!!! It's Nancy's fault that Paris went BACK to jail to do the TIME she was suppose to be doing anyway. Paris is suddenly just another victim of some TV commentator and her OWN actions and bad judgement have nothing to do with it?

Get the heads out of your asses people!!
