Between Scott Peterson and the Mark Hacking case I figure if there's one more wife murdered "allegedly" by her husband that all of a networks primetime news coverage would be complete. It seems like most of the news networks seem to cover these boring, long drawn out cases where new evidence is not produced for months at a time for 10 minutes each every half hour. So one more murdered wife would round out a 30 minute broadcast (maybe John Kerry could do us the honor? *crosses fingers*).
I don't think they realize that people don't care about these cases until they are wrapped up, all evidence is available and it's down to the final judgement. I would dare even say that most people could care less at all and the few who do would much rather just wait for the half hour or hour documentary that will inevitably be shown on Court TV or Discovery channel with in depth analysis from top forensic scientists and defense lawyers.
One other peeve of mine is the recent politically correct nature of the Hacking case where they have been calling Mark a "person of interest" in the case. Don't insult our intelligence, everyone knows when a married person disappears that the spouse is the Prime Suspect from the get go. You don't have to try and not hurt his feelings or Americas by calling him a suspect. Stop making everything into some kind of childish game where you might hurt someones feelings.
