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 Grace is fair yet firm. She is right about Paris and why should other visitors wait 5 hours when the Hilton's can go for a visit with
out waiting in line.

I don't care for Nancy's style or show but on this she had it right.
Nancy is not the only one who asked that same question,
In fact far from the only one
TMZ needs to blame someone for Harvey's sake.
Paris was not put in the same cell because she just had a hard time there lol.
I imagine they decorated and cleaned up a new bigger cell lol. This crap makes me sick.

Nancy Grace is a loud mouth shrivled up crone who probably hasn't been laid since the 40's.

She is one reason that tv is doled out in very, very small doses at my house, and news channels are banned.

I love Nancy Grace because she tells it like it is! Nancy Grace stands by the law and is not bought by people like the Hiltons! I believe that in spite of what the Sheriff's Dept. says that Nancy Grace is the reason that Paris was moved! I hope that Nancy dosen't quit until Paris in put in a regular cell to do hard time and stops recieving special treatment! Go Nancy Grace! Nancy is my hero!

Harvey is still licking Paris' herpes ass, I guess.

I think Nancy Grace is one of the real people on television. I think she does an excellent job; she tells it like it is. As for her causing a suicide, I don't know the story, but if people want to kill themselves, another human is not responsible. Only the person who commits this act.
