I must have missed the importance of the murder trial

Being broadcasted on almost all the cable n network channels. Why? Is this an important person? Are there no other issues for the media to be covering?

3. Probably because the state law allows cameras in the courtroom

Courtroom drama always sells

4. From everything I heard in clips, this man lost it.

His financial problems, his drug usage and the burden of his son's reckless disregard for human life and his wife forcing him to shovel horseshit finally got to him. He snapped and didn't do a great job of hiding all the tell tale signs, where he was at the time of the murders.

5. Free content that fills time


What's not to like?

They can fill hours of time and don't have to pay ANYONE.

10. It is such a perfect example of the effects of multi-generational corruption

and it will be an absolute travesty of justice if the man is not found guilty of murder.

Itís a case that will be studied by law students from here on out because it is so complex and unique. I can totally understand why some donít see its significance or write it off as a trivial media feeding frenzy but it deserves the attention itís getting.

13. Because people are watching it

If people don't tune in, then TV stations don't cover things.
I've managed to not see a single minute of this trial. It's pretty easy.
There is an easy solution if you don't want to see it, but apparently a lot of people's TVs aren't able to change channels, so they post about how awful it is that something they don't want to watch is on TV.

21. It's unusual for someone who kills their family like this to go to a trial.
