With the conclusion of the Casey Anthony murder trial last week, Steve Brill, the creator of Court TV, was asked about the ascension of HLN’s Nancy Grace because of her coverage of the trial, and he took the opportunity to blast the lawyer-turned-TV host, reports TVNewswer.com.
In an interview with the AP’s David Bauder, Brill called Grace a "monster," and not in a good way. "I feel like I owe the nation community service for having hired her and put her on television. She’s a monster,” Brill said.
Brill added that the point of Court TV reporters and experts is to inform viewers and clarify the legal process, not to offer opinions about guilt or innocence.
As previously reported, Grace has given up her latest show, "Swift Justice With Nancy Grace," to spend more time with her family.
