Comments on: Casey Anthony is OJ’d in the first sensational Twitter era case http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2011/07/06/anthony-is-ojd/ Where media and technology meet Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:48:25 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: GradyPhilpott http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2011/07/06/anthony-is-ojd/#comment-389353 Wed, 06 Jul 2011 22:48:11 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/?p=27516#comment-389353 The defense has only to introduce reasonable doubt to gain an acquittal. Baez threw every conceivable theory as to Caylee’s death and possible excuses for it not being reported, etc., etc.

I didn’t follow the case religiously, but it was my belief that the prosecution had not made a case against Casey Anthony and that’s how it panned out.

As for the family, I can’t see how they could ever recover from this media circus that has dragged their names and images through the cesspool that is the international media.

Out, out, damned spot!

I wrote an article about the social media implications as well, found here: http://www.ezanga.com/news/2011/07/06/so cial-media-sites-explode-with-discussion -of-casey-anthony-verdict/
