News & media services have become very prevalent

News & Media - Around the world today, 24 hour news services on the television have become very prevalent. One area in which the televised 24 hour news & media has become extremely active has been in the coverage of trials.

The 24 hour news & media can take what would have been an otherwise unheard of event -- for the most part -- and can turn it into international news around the clock.

A prime example of the 24 hour news & media taking a crime case and blowing it into a never ending media parade worldwide is the case of Scott Peterson in the California, U.S.A.

Most people -- thanks to the news & media -- do know that Scott Peterson was arrested and ultimately convicted for the murder of his pregnant wife, Laci, and his unborn son, Connor. The case was constantly on the television, not only in the United States but in other countries around the world.

The news & media argued that the case warranted coverage like it received because it was a case of a husband killing his pregnant wife. In point of fact, there sadly were innumerable other examples of husbands killing their wives -- even their pregnant wives -- during the same time period. But, in the Peterson case, we had a telegenic defendant and an attractive victim. They looked good on television -- and off the news& media went.

While the Peterson case is tragic, it is not any more tragic and horrible than many other crimes that have been committed. In the end, it likely was superficial motivators that brought the news & media to such a frenzied coverage of the Peterson case. In the end, it likely was the fact that Scott Peterson looked good on television as much as anything else that warranted the news & media attention that followed the crime.
