One take on Italian journalism following the Knox verdict

Here's one take from the Kercher/Knox/Sollecito fallout from Nina Burleigh writing on the Guardian's comment is free website

The Italian media, cowed, lazy and compliant, allowed a bullying prosecutor to frame Knox and Sollecito for the Kercher murder

The American journalist says that what she found most surprising, was the way the journalists I worked with seemed hardly bothered by the problems with the case

And while everyone was focused on Amanda Knox, the "star" of the horrid murder theory, no one was doing journalistic due diligence into the background and criminal history of Rudy Guede.
