    Exactly! I agree. The Italian media were bad, just as the American media have been since the conviction. While the Italian media (some) wanted her guilty, the American media wanted her innocent... this is an intolerable meddling in an ongoing case and hurts justice pure and simple.

    I have no problem with media going after the case, after the fact, but not during the freaking trial.. spreading rumours and half truths and trying to influence public opinion.

    Not when the media and government are on the same side... read Italian media in this case, or the US media in the lead up to the Iraq war.

    That's a problem too, but that's a problem with government and it's entanglement with corporation; not a problem with the base of press. Press must remain free. We just need to remove the entanglement with government to allow it to do its job properly.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

Now saying that the Italian media were no better in doing exactly the opposite. This case reminds me of the Lockerbie bomber case.. same bull**** US media bias over again.

    As for me not liking the US.. come on... what a load of bullcrap.

    Who cares, Amanda Knox is hot and hot always wins in the end. Personally I don't think she has the guts to kill anyone.

    she ought to have that prosecutor whacked though. He's a dick and if she is guilty of defamation he certainly is too

    I agree with you. It was pretty obvious that the American media was all about Knox being innocent. Knox is American, attractive and has an innocent (albeit creepy as hell) look to her and the media went after it and sensationalized the trial. I agree it as well as the Italian media were irresponsible particularly considering that the jury wasn't sequestered. Moreover, much of the pro-Knox media influence in the appeals case was due to Knox's family hiring a PR firm.

    That said, I still believe she should have been off because I see a lot of reasonable doubt for her. I don't know if she's innocent though.

    She doesn't seem like she has the guts to kill either, but from my obviously limited knowledge of her, I could see her killing someone in a drug fueled situation, but then again, my opinion is impacted by the media's portrayal of her and that bat**** insane prosecutor.

    I'm not having it both ways. Each piece of evidence was different. A bloody hand print and DNA INSIDE of the body is MUCH different from a knife with DNA a your boyfriends apartment with trace amounts of unusable DNA on the blade.

    The Italian press constantly trumpeted claims that the British girl was upset that Knox left her "vibrator" around in plain sight and "had numerous men spend the night with her". They were doing all they could to convince the jury she was some whacked out nympho
