As much as I understand, and to a certain extent agree with the sentiments you expressed, due legal procedure has to be followed.
And that procedure includes and open and public trial where ALL relevant evidence is presented to a jury and a verdict is reached.
The trial should not be allowed to become a propaganda vehicle for the accused and neither should it be viewed as condemnation of all Muslims.
It's a trial of two people accused of murdering a complete stranger in cold blood and it is a case that has massive pulic interest and MSM aren't
reporting anything about it.
Surely you ask yourself why when there was such a massive public reaction to this murder?
For what purpose and reason are MSM failing to report on it and at whose request or instruction?

I heard Nick Ferrari on LBC make the claim that "if the newspapers arent reporting something, then there is no public interest"
Unfortunately for many their only exposure to news and current affairs are what they read in The Sun, The Star, The Mirror etc.
Some actually bother to listen to BBC, Sky and local News bulletins but how many actually bother to let the information sink in and think for
themselves, how many look for independent corroboration and how many look for different perspectives or news stories not reported in MSM?
But I suspect that this isn't a case where MSM have decided there is no story to be reported but rather a news blackout as a result of either a legal
ruling as a result of the subject of the For Mention hearings, some other legal instruction from the Court so as not to prejudice the case or as an
instruction / ruling coming from the government.
If it comes from the government I can only guess that it can be for one of two reasons; either the government fear the publics response or they have
something to hide - possibly even an element of both.
A whole week and I havent heard a single mention of the case in the MSM.
Exactly. Considering the passion that this case provoked not one TV station or national newspaper has reported on this weeks proceedings.
I would have expected at least a quick report stating something like; " two people appeared at The Old Bailey today accused of the killing of Lee
Rigby but for legal reasons we can not report on the exact details at present" - I'm absolutely certain it's happened before.
As more information came out, I became skeptical and the more I engaged logic and not emotion, I found the story to be highly questionable.
There's certainly a few questions that need to be both asked and answered. And the best place for that to happen is in an open court reported on fully
by an independent media.
And bear in mind the government is trying to impose further press restrictions as a result of the Leveson Report etc.
