    While we were all distracted last night enjoying football, Geraldo did multiple segments on his show about this. Started interviewing Jansen. A couple of things that came out was Jansen was frustrated that the affidavits were not being referred to enough by Geraldo. Additionally Jansen stated that there never was video and that he wished there was because it would have made their defense stronger. Yet minutes later stated the video was deleted.

    That was followed by a panel that included an attorney that had prosecuted many sexual assault cases. Her points were that the assault was reported right away, the victim had no apparent reason to lie and Winston taking the 5th were strong factors in support of the victim. At the end when there was no time for follow up, she stated a couple of times she believed that the victim had been drugged. Geraldo, after being ripped by Jansen for not referring to the affidavits enough stated that he gave no weight to these accounts given by his teammates and pals.

    HLN isn't about to let themselves be outdone on coverage of a crime story, give Geraldo another day or two of covering it and Nancy Grace will feel compelled to weigh in.

    Affidavits without cross-examination on the subject matter contained therein, are no different than other forms of self-seving poppycock.

    Poppycock, as defined by Blacks Law, is synonymous with bullshit.
    (In case anyone was wondering.)

    Using most noles logic, Aaron Hernandez would be innocent because the two eye witnesses said he didn't do it.

    Believe me... after watching the Nolies pull this crap for over 35 years... I would love to see Geraldo and Grace keep on this trail and hunt down the facts! As we can all see, something DOES NOT smell right here.

    Meggs, a lifelong Tally resident, FSU alumus, fan and local attorney did his best job, (ahem) on this thing... but just because the victim's account did not hold enough clarity or weight... does not mean that Mr. Winston is truly inocent.
    Would love to see all of this blow up in the Nolies' faces... even if it is after the season is finished.

    Fire her? She was able to at least ask him 3 questions before he took the 5th.

    I just wonder if the people demanding an apology from Heather Cox might be some of the same people who smeared the victim through social media for the last month with lies about her?

    From the comments:

    LOL! (especially at the hyperbole/melodrama).

    READ: "Whaaaaa.....we don't want to hear the truth....we don't want anyone else to know the truth...we can't handle the truth!!!"

    btw--he posted the number for ESPN: 888/549-3776, option 3.

    I took him up on his suggestion, and promptly called--and voiced my support for Ms. Cox.

    Feel free to do the same. ;)

    Let's see how ESPN reacts.
    This BSC thing is in California.
    Mucho media presence. Feeding frenzy.

    Exactly. It's almost comical to see how Jansen has been waving these affidavits around like they conclusively demonstrate Winston's innocence. Any serious prosecutor would have a field day cross examining those two guys.
