Here’s one way to guage how the Jodi Arias trial is captivating a sector of cable news viewers. Our anonymous tips box is filling up with comments, questions and theories from trial watchers who A) think we’re HLN, B) that we have a line Arias’ attorney, or C) we’re as captivated as they are. (Okay, maybe we are a little bit). Here’s a sampling from just the last few hours.
- why wouldn’t travis go for the gun instead of body slamming her? i don’t think he had one.
- Why doesn’t the Judge stop Jodi’s Lawyer from smiling and laughing while his client is on the stand?
- She is an abused woman. Where is her dad… what kind of relationship did she have with her father?
- O MY GOD,SHE IS SO VERY GUILTY SHE IS A MONSTER
As Alex wrote earlier, the trial is drawing high ratings for HLN which has spent the most time covering it. More proof: last night, HLN’s 7pm show “Jane Velez Mitchell” beat FNC, MSNBC and CNN in younger viewers and was #2 behind Fox News in total viewers.
