Don't get me wrong -- it's a tragic, tragic event when ANY child disappears/is murdered.. but the media coverage over certain children is incredible. Try being one of the other parents out there whose child has been missing for months or years and no one cares because it isn't a big story. I wonder how many children could be found if they would spend just 2 minutes of each segment about Caylee showing other missing kids? Your thoughts?

I think one of the saddest parts of this story is how the media has convicted that mother. Don't get me wrong I think she did it too! But you are innocent until a jury of your peers sees all the evidence and finds you guilty! Not until the media decides THEY have the evidence that they want. I mean keep in mind whenever they report a story it's front page news in BIG BLACK letters. But when they are wrong the retractions are very small. I think the worst part of all THAT is that they have now tainted the jury pool and the mom will probably be able to get off on that as a technicality!

I can see your point of view. There are lots of factors that make a case media worthy. It does seem like many minority cases go on w/o much attention. I just hope to God, I am never in this type of situation--having a missing child. I don't want to imagine it let alone go there for real.
