Media coverage of Amanda Knox's case is apparently shifting from the PR-driven positive coverage to actually paying attention to the details. This Friday news report by The Christian Post acknowledges the fact that Knox's father hired a PR firm to represent the family instead of simply hiring a lawyer to prove the girl's innocence. It also brings to attention the fact that Amanda has been tied to drug traffickers in Italy -- in particular, one drug dealer who had dealt drugs to her before and after the murder of Meredith Kercher. With all of this press changing from positive to negative, it's not out of line to question whether or not anyone in the United States actually believes in her self-proclaimed innocence.

Of course, it's only the online media that's been paying attention to the latest details surrounding Knox's case. This report states that the US Media is "brushing off" the news of the convicted murderer's links with drug dealers. That's nothing surprising, since it was already established previously that Knox's PR team won't allow the U.S. media to get near her unless they can promise positive coverage. Why would an innocent person need to manipulate the media in such a manner? This is a question that a lot of people who read these online news reports should ask themselves, since the mainstream "television" media isn't touching the story with a 10-foot-pole.

Do you think Amanda Knox is truly innocent, or do you believe she's actually guilty and has just gotten lucky with an adequate PR team? That's a valid question to ask as time inches closer to when the decision will be made to extradite her or keep her here.
