Steve Harvey No. 1 Among Urban Stations, No. 5 in America

Steve Harvey’s radio show No. 1 among urban stations March 19, 2007 BY LARRY McSHANE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK — Steve Harvey arrived 18 months ago in the kingdom of the radio shock jocks, where the royalty included Howard Stern, Don Imus and Opie and Anthony.

Mesereau rips Grace a new one abt Jackson trial coverage

In case you missed it, Attorney Thomas Mesereau ripped Nancy (dis)Grace a new one when he commented on her rather atrocious coverage of the 2005 Michael Jackson trial.

Nancy (dis) Grace CBS profile includes Mesereau blasting coverage

Mesereau Tears Grace a New One over Jackson Trial Coverage (CBS | MJEOL) As Michael Jackson tries to repair his image after an arduous trial for child molestation charges which resulted in a not guilty verdict, TV legal analyst Nancy Grace isn’t backing down from her belief that he is guilty. “Frankly, when it comes to Mr. Jackson, I believe I was right,” she told Thalia Assuras in an interview for Sunday Morning. “And if you take a look at the jury who is now writing a book about how guilty Mr. Jackson is, they agree with me, although they didn’t have the guts to say it in verdict form.”

MJEOL NOTE: The jurors who later claimed that Jackson was guilty, two of them, made unfounded allegations against their fellow jurors. Some of those jurors spoke out about them. One of the jurors Grace is mentioning as agreeing with her, Elenor Cook, was also trying to sell t-shirts at one point. According to her fellow juror, Cook also began working on a book WHILE she was still a juror hearing the case. As for the other juror, Ray Hultman, he gave numerous interviews right after the trial saying he flat out didn’t believe that Jackson had done anything to the accuser (Gavin Arvizo). That later changed when he got a book deal. He then later sued to get out of the contract with the guy who made the book deal, and called his book’s ghost writer (Stacey Brown) a plagiarist.

But Jackson’s lawyer Tom Mesereau said Grace put Jackson on trial in the court of public opinion by presuming his guilt from her seat behind an anchor desk.
