Murray Trial

Jury Shouldn't Watch Nancy Grace

7/20/2011 10:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lawyers for Conrad Murray told the trial judge they don't want  Nancy Grace to pull a "Casey Anthony" on the jury -- so they asked the judge to prohibit jurors from watching her.

Attorney Michael Flanagan argued that it was impractical to tell jurors they can't watch TV - because they simply will.  So Flanagan asked Judge Michael Pastor to sequester the jury, O.J. style.  The judge told Flanagan to file a motion and he'd consider it, although the judge did say he thought sequestering was both unnecessary and too expensive.

Flanagan pressed his claim for outtakes from the "This Is It" rehearsals -- something Sony doesn't want to cough up.  Sources tell us ... Flanagan wants the outtakes to show there were periods where Michael Jackson appeared to be on drugs. 

In a telling comment, Judge Pastor said, "This case is going to focus on the charge, not personal lifestyle."

Some people sit and think that what they see and hear on TV is truthful journalism, and never question what they hear and still think that their reporting is of the highest degree of integrity.

Some journalist and I use that term loosely in her case, use their show as a platform not to look at the evidence but to give their personal opinions, which too many get drawn into. They give jaded facts and know all to well that the court of public opinion will accept what they are saying instead of looking at the actual facts which were handed to the jury.


The facts of a case should always be about the evidence and not what justice you think should have been meted out.

Some have even gone so far to suggest in the Anthony case that the jurors were not intelligent enough to look at the facts and make a competent decision of guilt. Murray's story has changed so many times that the jury in this case will surely get a chance to see and form their own opinions, and won't rely on the likes of Nancy, Diane or anyone else.

I Hate Nancy Grace    

Everyone with any intelligence knows just how dangerous Nasty Grace's poisoned tongue is. She has zero respect for our justice system and for every American's right to be INNOCENT until PROVEN guilty!
And even though she's finally starting to focus on something other than Casey Anthony -- it's too late. The real damage has been done and you can't backpedal from that.

HLN will never "grace" my TV screen again.

Effin A! His "personal lifestyle" is the whole reason Dr. Murray is on trial in the FIRST place. I'm so sick of wacko jacko fans acting as of he were God. Jackson was very talented and loved his kids, but his own deamons were the cause of his death. Always want someone else to blame......
