Media Craze

on July 8, 2011

I pretty much gave up on watching the news years ago.  There is not too much “good news” out there worth listening too.  This week, the media as been going crazy over the Casey Anthony trial.  I admit, I have not followed it at all (I have had a few other things on my mind the last 2 years) so I can not comment on whether or not she is guilty.  However, I do wonder, why the media and the “world” cares so much?  Many of my friends made comments on facebook yesterday when the verdict was given.  I remember when the OJ trail was going on, I watched it with my co-workers, and they were placing bets on the results.  I refused to participate in that.   I don’t understand how some cases are such public news, and others are not heard about again.  As horrible as it may be, I am sure that there are many parents that kill their children – we just never hear about it.  Why did we hear about Caylee?  Why Jon Benonit?  Is it because they are pretty little white girls?  Clearly OJ was because he was “famous”.  What bothers me most about these cases, is that people focus so much on the KILLER and we seem to forget that there was a VICTIM.  (the topic of victim rights is another topic I could go off on, but not today)

Perhaps we will never know who killed that little girl – or so many of the children that go missing and are murdered every year, that we may never know about, because they just aren’t “newsworthy” outside of their family.  I think the best thing we can do is to pray for the lost ones, and pray that justice will somehow be brought to them.  Pray, that like John Walsh through the murder of his son, something good can come out of something so horrible.

    I think it’s the attorney’s too who send these cases into a media frenzy……it seems in this case they wanted to really “muddy the waters” so that the real truth couldn’t come out and leave doubt in peoples minds. I served on a jury 6 years ago and I hope I never have to do it again…..

    I served on a grand jury for an entire miserable summer and heard over 100 cases. It destroyed my faith in the justice system. Years later, however, I continue to pray for the individuals within that system who still devote their days and lives to making it right wherever they can. I challenge everyone who was effected by this (or any) public trial to do the same: let it move you to prayer. Pray for strength and integrity for those fighting for justice, and pray for hearts and opinions to be changed wherever necessary. And add a little prayer for all people whose governments are so much worse than this.
