I admire Nancy's journalistic and legal expertise, although I hate it when her voice cracks when getting emotional, almost nightly, and she does often show a bias for the prosecutional side...but then again it is her show.

I watch her periodically, depending on whether I find what she's covering at the time interesting. More enjoyed her previous days on Court TV. Love her sarcastic wit...thought it a little out of line when she asked the brother of the Peru murder victim Stephany to comment on his sisters missing eye, to which the brother politely declined. Haven't heard any more about that little tidbit since.

I cannot stand it when she treats her guests like garbage, i.e. Mike Brooks.

I cannot get past her annoying vocals to find out if she is a good crime reporter. It truly is the nails to the blackboard for me. Within two minutes of the show, I find myself cringing to listen to her and change the channel. I tried to get through a show, forcing myself to watch and by the first 15mins I just said...I can't do this...I just cannot listen to this woman rant. Sorry! I cannot even say she is a bad reporter...I can't get far enough to find out! lol Makes my skin crawl to think about her.

Nancy offers too much opinion, not enough facts. She dictates how her 'panel' of experts can participate. She only allows people to agree with her orchestrated version.

Can't stand how she shuts up people who don't agree with her. Once she gets it into her head that someone is guilty, it becomes a freak show. It's not news.

I used to think she was a crime reporter. But now it seems it's just sensationalism.

You took the words right out of my mouth,,,I would also add major drama queen to her resume Female version of Geraldo Riveria who in the beginning of his news days WAS a reputable reporter

Here is some interesting facts about Nancy Grace (didn't know her fiance was murdered years ago):
Nancy Grace - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I remember when she was on Court TV.
I really like her as a person, but I don't think anyone is actually that emotionally involved with every case their show covers. I don't watch her new show except every now and then.

She has a reputation for spreading untrue rumors about people. People with a bully pulpit such as hers need to validate their stories with a fine mesh filter before they broadcast them to the world.

She has the legal background, however, she has decided not to utilize it. She knows what is and what is not admissable. Therefore, what she says is pretty much bologna. I put her in the evil-doer camp.
