Etc, Etc.

The Jodi Arias verdict sure as hell wasn't about justice by any stretch of the imagination.

It was seen as payback for Casey Anthony, just as O.J. Simpson's acquittal was seen as payback for Rodney King.

The whole Arias trial was a travesty.

I place the blame squarely on CBS for having covered the case in the beginning, peddling talking points that were almost out of the LDS and not critically examine the claims of so-called "friends" of Travis Alexander.

Worse than that, CBS's Maureen Maher interviewed Jodi Arias, a clear ethical breach, when it was obvious Arias had no lawyer to represent her and anything she said could be used in open court.

Maher and her producers should be fired for that.
