Back in 2003 it wasn’t Casey Anthony who was being tried in the media, it was Scott Peterson. Peterson was eventually found guilty of murdering his wife, Lacy Peterson and their unborn child but not before a parade of talking heads had convicted him on tv.
One of the purveyors of pundit justice who we found particularly icky at the time was Dan Abrams, who in 2003 was host of the “Abrams Report” on MSNBC. (As a side note; this is the interview in which Bob asks our favorite question ever).
