What you see is not always what you get: thoughts on the O.J. trial and the camera

Article Abstract:

Television coverage of the O.J. Simpson trial helped expose the racial divisions that exist in perceptions of the criminal justice system despite the fact that the length and expense of the trial was unprecedented. White people were far more accepting of prosecution assertions that overwhelming evidence was present. African-Americans were more open to defense arguments based on police misconduct and the circumstantiality of the evidence. Media coverage provided the opportunity to expose these fundamental differences in perception and experience.
