Casey Anthony: Focus Group Rules for Aquital
On 48 Hours this weekend, the program will ask an Orlando focus group if it would acquit Casey Anthony of first-degree murder. According to focus group, most of the 12 “jurors” would acquit.
From the Orlando Sentinel:
The program’s unusual approach is “shameful,” said Al Tompkins, an instructor at the Poynter Institute, a school for journalists. “We have a system in the United States that works pretty well. It’s a system of discovery, of hearings, of cross examinations, and it’s worked pretty darn well for a long time. We have no business trying this case.”
“We wanted to do a focus group in the place where it had the most coverage,” said Susan Zirinsky, executive producer of “48 Hours Mystery.” “The results are shocking.”
