She Fought The Law Alert™:
As the trial starts, the gossip rags pay attention to the Casey Anthony trial.

Publications: People, National Enquirer, OK!
Date: 13 June 2011

Fresh trash on Thursdays! Before this week, all the news about Casey Anthony, the mom on trial for her life for allegedly killing her daughter, has been in the Enquirer and Globe. Now that the trial has started, both People and OK! get in the game and the Enquirer takes a new tack. Here are the headlines.
  • People: Caylee Anthony murder case
    Secrets & Lies
    Mom's shocking defense
    Bombshell testimony, new claims of sexual abuse inside accused killer Casey Anthony's trial strategy
  • OK!: Casey Anthony caught in a lie
  • National Enquirer: Casey Anthony will walk free!
    Killer mom's plan to escape death row!
As usual, if everyone else is saying x, the Enquirer feels duty bound to say "NOT x!"

Call it a marketing strategy.

Or lying. Whatever.

UPDATE: let's me eat some crow. The Enquirer's experts got it right. Her defense team did enough to create reasonable doubt in the jury's mind and she was found not guilty of murder.

She's guilty.
End of story.

I'm just paying minimal attention, but her defense strategy doesn't sound like it would work in a million years.
