MSM Story of the Day: Amanda Knox Retrial

Here’s a screenshot from a search of “Amanda Knox” on Google news. 

That’s quite a lot of coverage for a non-story. Here’s ABC News on what would happen if Knox were to be found guilty at retrial:

Her lawyer said the new trial will probably start again next year. He said Knox will not come back for new trial.

The new trial does not mean that Knox would be back in an Italian prison any time soon. She would not be required to return to Italy for the trial and if she is convicted again, that ruling would be appealed up to the Supreme Court. More legal proceedings will be necessary to extradite Knox to Italy. Experts do not believe such an effort would be successful.

Move along MSM, move along.

During a CNN town hall on gun control, a furious crowd of Americans jeered at two conservatives, Marco Rubio and Dana Loesch, who stood in defense of the Second ... Read More
