Yahoo! News - Media Wants Bryant Hearing Open: "EAGLE, Colo. - Media organizations on Tuesday asked the judge in Kobe Bryant's sexual assault case to keep open an upcoming court hearing involving the medical history of the NBA star's accuser. "
Of course they want the case open. This case has basketball, sex, money and crime and for media organizations that spells M-O-N-E-Y. Just like the OJ trial which we were drowned in for hour after hour the media knows that these high-profile cases sell a lot of newspapers and get a lot of people excited and watching their televisions. That means good ratings and that means lots of advertising revenue.
Call me a cynic but I don't buy the old "The public has a right to know" line. In this case I think it's "The public has a right to make us rich."
