The Rocky Mountain News’ Mike Pearson has a Q&A with Nancy Grace…(via FTVLive)
3 Do you think you ever go overboard with your prosecutorial zeal?
“I think I’m just telling the truth. Now the truth can be pretty harsh sometimes. What should I do, sugarcoat it? Why? I’ve got one hour to cover a story . . . People tend to become a homogenized creation of the airwaves. I did not go to law school for that.”
4 You’ve been parodied on Saturday Night Live and Boston Legal. How do you feel about being a pop-culture icon?
“I don’t think I’m a pop-culture icon. I think I’m easy to make fun of, and that’s OK. I laugh right along with it. I saved all the Boston Legals on my TiVo, but I haven’t seen the one where I get hit in the head with a shovel, and then go right back on the air with a bandage on my head.”
5 You seem to spend a lot of time on celebrity news, specifically Britney Spears. How does that jibe with your mission to help solve crimes?
“I don’t see the celebrity news, I see the child custody issues. To me, when a celeb commits a crime that I feel is worth shedding light on - and celebs commit crimes every day - I feel very strongly. I’ve just seen so many cases where children were abused and mistreated. From what I’ve seen firsthand, cases that involve women and children get treated less stringently than other cases, and I really resent that. You know what, it’s a relief not to always have (to talk about) a murderer.”
