Influential Legal Talking Head Jane Velez-Mitchell of CNN Is Now On The Case

Posted by Peter Quennell

CNN airs two one-hour crime talk-shows nightly. Nancy Grace’s, and Jane Velez-Mitchell’s.

They are wildly popular in the US, and the shows can be real scene-changers.

Nancy and Jane are INTENSE advocates for and defenders of victims’ rights - something this case could use some of, right now. 

They have very little patience for defendants who make a weak case or lie. And if they see tricks going down, in the courtroom or outside, they will leap on the case like a dog on a bone.

Usually for days or weeks, and sometimes for months.

Jane has clearly concluded that tricks are going down in the Meredith case. She is becoming very, very scathing in her increasingly frequent segments.

The first time we caught Jane on the case, she was working over a confused, stuttering Peter Popham of the Independent - that’s a great comment below his absurd piece, by the way.

You could watch Jane’s skepticism growing, minute by minute. Last night, her show aimed its spotlight at the opening session of the trial.

Say goodbye to Fast Pete! At least here. Others are increasingly standing up for Meredith, as you can see from this CNN segment. I admire them, and it is time I did the same.

Many people knew my name anyway. Fast Pete was merely a pseudonym, and I was never anonymous. That’s all you get though! This site is about Meredith. Never about us.

Hey, Pete! Since you provided a link to the blog you run using your real name when you joined Steve Huff’s board, for anyone with a tiny bit of curiosity and computer skills, who you are has never been a mystery.

Still, it is nice to see you stand up for Meredith in this public way. I have never seen you give a false job title or pretend that your pseudonym Fast Pete is your real name.

Thanks for posting the CNN link. Speaking of Steve Huff, he was one of the invited guests on yesterday’s Jane Velez-Mitchell show.
