Foxy Knoxy

It surely tells you all you need to know about the prurient interest of the meedja in the Meredith Kercher murder case that it is nigh impossible to find a picture of Raffaele Sollecito in any report on the subject. Yesterday's Times devoted most of its front page and a couple of pictorial inside spreads to the news that Amanda Knox had been cleared of the crime, but you had to read a long way to discover that so too had Sollecito. Doubtless the tabloids were even worse.

I've been trying to avoid this story but don't seem to be able to.
It's very difficult to form an objective opinion when one's not in the court-room or able to listen to the evidence.
In a pre-verdict television news report it was stated that a huge P.R. campaign had been mounted to free the young woman.
It may be of some relief to the young man that he's not in that spot-light.

The New York Times managed to mention Sollecito in the second para.

Sollecito? Was he involved as well?
