Nancy Grace to Leave HLN After More Than a Decade

Ms. Grace had consistently characterized herself as a champion of victim’s rights. But she has been criticized frequently as promoting a one-sided view of the stories she covers, castigating those she perceives to be guilty without waiting for rulings from jury or judge.

In 2011, Jonathan Turley, a law professor at George Washington University, told The Times’s media critic, David Carr, that Ms. Grace had done a disservice to journalism and the law.

“I think she has managed to demean both professions with her hype, rabid persona and sensational analysis,” he said. “Some part of the public takes her seriously, and her show erodes the respect for basic rights.”
