This should get the hits up

JonBenet Ramsey, JonBenet Ramsey, JonBenet Ramsey.

I know, I don’t really care much about this whole story either but I happened across a really interesting piece from the San Francisco Gate website. Read it here.

What I find most interesting is that in appologizing for the way the Ramseys were treated by the media, he’s basically doing the same thing to the suspect that was arrested this week (a fact noted by at least one commenter).

What I don’t like are his attempts to pass on the blame, to an extent. Granted, he makes the full admission that the media owes the Ramseys an appology but some of his rationale for the media circus in the first place is troubling.

Anyway, it makes for an interesting read.

Update: Antonia Zerbisias’ column in the Star today is on the same issue and has more insight on the role of the then-burgeoning 24-hour news newtorks and this here interweb in the media debacle.
