Who could ever forget the Padilla circus that injected itself in the middle of the Caylee Anthony case with its negative attacks on the innocent family members, friends of the family, Tim Miller and even law enforcement with never-ending chatter based on rumor and innuendo? I will never forget the day Padillo was being interviewed, shortly after Caylee’s remains were found. After he rattled on about how the duct tape fit into his theory, a theory that he had maintained since the computer searches on chloroform had been released through media – namely that this highly intellegent child had been subjected to drugging over a relatively long period of time… zanax and chloroform. In a boisterous way that has come to be associated with Padilla, he boasted that Caylee had been subject to chloroform through the duct tape in spite of the fact that this poor child didn’t have, just one piece of duct tape covering her mouth, but THREE pieces of tape covering both airways. Unresending. Padilla continued trying to convince the viewing audience by spitting back that Casey had placed holes in the tape for the nasal cavities! Finally, the newscaster shot back with the question that continues to baffle viewing audiences, everywhere:
How do YOU know???
After following this case, since the beginning; I can honestly say with conviction that no one knows, exactly, what happened to Caylee during those last moments of her short life except Casey. We all speculated and had our theories… some of them right on the mark; but when all is said and told, they’re only theories. As far as the media is concerned, it is my opinion that people reporting news and their producers should be informed and aware of the facts and that there should be less room for opinion or self-injecture when reporting the news. But, in the case of Caylee Anthony; this rule went, for the most part… ignored.
Again, I thank you for your thought provoking commentary that makes it evident that you are sensitive to the same issues we are… namely, truth and fairness in reporting.
Justice for Caylee
The newsman engaged in this exchange was Jim Moret of HLN Headline News… priceless!
