    She can't just make up things and announce it on tv. She ain't no Jodi Arias.

    you might want to read the wiki article
    The Supreme Court of Georgia has twice commented on Grace's conduct as a prosecutor. First, in a 1994 heroin drug trafficking case, Bell v. State, the Court declared a mistrial, saying that Grace had "exceeded the wide latitude of closing argument" by drawing comparisons to unrelated murder and rape cases.[9] In 1997 the court was more severe, overturning the murder-arson conviction of businessman W. W. Carr in the death of his wife. While the court said its reversal was not due to these transgressions, since the case had turned primarily on circumstantial evidence, it nevertheless concluded "the conduct of the prosecuting attorney in this case demonstrated her disregard of the notions of due process and fairness, and was inexcusable".[10][11] Carr was freed in 2004 when the Georgia Supreme Court ruled unanimously that Fulton County had waited too long to retry him, thereby unfairly prejudicing his right to a fair trial.[12]
    Despite upholding the conviction she sought, a panel of the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals wrote in a 2005 opinion that they agreed with the magistrate judge who said Grace "played fast and loose" with her ethical duties, "we cannot say that any false testimony clearly rose to the level of a due process violation" and failed to "fulfill her responsibilities" as a prosecutor in the 1990 triple murder trial of Herbert Connell Stephens.[13] The court agreed that it was "difficult to conclude that Grace did not knowingly use testimony" from a detective that there were no other suspects, despite the existence of outstanding arrest warrants for other men.[13]

    and...
    Controversies
    In 2011 a New York Times article David Carr wrote “Since her show began in 2005, the presumption of innocence has found a willful enemy in the former prosecutor turned broadcast judge-and-jury". He criticized her handling of the kidnapping of Elizabeth Smart, the Duke lacrosse case, the Melinda Duckett interview and suicide and the Caylee Anthony case. George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley told Carr that Grace, as an attorney and reporter, “has managed to demean both professions with her hype, rabid persona, and sensational analysis. Some part of the public takes her seriously, and her show erodes the respect for basic rights”.[16]
    those are just some highlights.
    She might not be a Jodi Arias, but she can certainly make things up.

    none of the statements you posted above proved Nancy Grace was a lier. She just wasn't good at her job as a prosecutor.

    Well, no, the court ruled Grace almost certainly presented testimony she knew to be false. That would fall under the category of lying I would think.

    So, what exactly could to stop her? People make things up and announce them on tv all the time.

    I wonder how long deliberations take. The longer it takes the better for her, I assume?

    I don't feel sorry for her.. but I don't believe anybody 'deserves' a death penalty.. Wow all those quasi news channels will have to find something else to report on soon

    Article in the local newspaper about the Jodi Arias trial. They also have a separate article on 'memorable moments' in the trial (not sure if you can access either one without a subscription)

    I think they will just go back to endless non stop coverage of golf.

    Yeah, the right she should have taken advantage of was the right not to testify. If and when she's convicted she should consider new counsel for the appeal because they shouldn't have let her within a hundred miles of the stand--she didn't come across as truthful or sympathetic. Combined with a "self-defense" killing involving shooting, stabbing, and slitting the throat to the bone (something that isn't easy to do when the person is TRYING) that did a lot to remove reasonable doubt. Yes, she could just be calm now, AND have been in a psychotic fugue that prompted her to kill him three different ways despite remembering plenty of details of his alleged abuse, and every witness who says her ex was not a violent, dangerous person including an ex-girlfriend could all be lying. But they're looking for REASONABLE doubt, not any little doubt at all.
