The jury has found Jodi Arias guilty of first-degree murder in the death of her one-time boyfriend in Arizona. Arias initially denied involvement and later blamed the killing on masked intruders. Two years after her arrest, she said she killed Travis Alexander in self-defense.
After a four-month trial that included graphic details of their sexual escapades and photos of Alexander just after his death, jurors began deliberating Friday afternoon.
This was the breaking news that was so important that all the news networks cut away from their coverage of the House Oversight Committee’s Benghazi hearing (assuming they bothered to cover it in the first place.)
Between the revelations during the hearing and the media’s virtual embargo of coverage thereof, I am thoroughly disgusted. (I actually started to feel nauseous during the hearing, but that may have just been a bad breakfast burrito.)
I am feeling very pessimistic about the future of our nation right now. Please don’t attempt to cheer me up, that will only make it worse. I think I’ll go down to the park and beat up a mime.
