Elizabeth Smart puts Nancy Grace in her place

This may get moved to the tv forum, but I know there are a lot of people here, myself included, who can't stand this woman. If that includes you, you will enjoy this:

I read about that this morning, here's the transcript

GRACE: Oh, Elizabeth, you know, you can never know how intensely you were searched for and prayed for during all of that time. Do you let yourself think back on it, or do you try not to think about — like a lot of crime victims, we try not to think of it sometimes.

ELIZABETH SMART: Well, you know, I said earlier today, I have so much — so much to look forward to. I have a whole life ahead of me. It`s just not even worth looking back.

GRACE: Elizabeth, I remember when you first went missing and literally hundreds of people were out looking for you. Now we know you were being held captive not very far away from your home at all. Did you ever hear people calling out your name, trying to find you?

ELIZABETH SMART: There was one time.

GRACE: At that moment, did you want to scream out, Here I am, help me?

ELIZABETH SMART: I mean, of course. Who wouldn`t?

GRACE: At that moment, when you knew people were looking for you, your parents were there. They were trying to find you. How did that make you feel?

ELIZABETH SMART: You know, I didn`t know how big it was. And it was — it was good to know people were looking for me, but I — I felt so far away, you know, I just — it didn`t really connect at that time. And you know, and I think that…

GRACE: And you were such a little girl, Elizabeth. I mean, you were just 14 years old.

ELIZABETH SMART: Yes.

GRACE: It`s hard to expect a little 14-year-old girl to react the way an adult might imagine they would react under those circumstances. You were afraid, I assume.

ELIZABETH SMART: Yes.

GRACE: Did your kidnappers tell you they would hurt you or your family if you tried to get away?

ELIZABETH SMART: You know, they did. And I really am here to support the bill and not to go into what — you know, what happened to me, what the whole — like, what is in my past because I`m not here to give an interview on that. I`m here to help push this bill through.

GRACE: And I want you to push the bill through and I want people to hear your voice.

When we take a look back, there`s a shot of Elizabeth Smart, and here she is, four years later. And frankly, it`s a miracle that she was ever found. You know, a lot of people have seen shots of you wearing a burqa. How did you see out of that thing?

ELIZABETH SMART: You know, I`m really not going to talk about this at this time. I mean, that`s something I just don`t even look back at. And I really — I really — to be frankly honest, I really don`t appreciate you bringing all this up.

GRACE: I`m sorry, dear. I thought that you would speak out to other victims. But you know what? I completely understand. A lot of victims don`t want to talk about it and don`t feel like talking about it.

It's not nearly as entertaining as the title suggests.

She rolls here eyes once, and says she doesn't want to talk about her abduction.

Own Nancy Grace?

Elizabeth Smart just sounds like a space cadet.

Yeah, well, almost a year of captivity, rape and death threats can do that to a person.

Even after this much time has elapsed?

If she is still suffering, why force her on camera?

I have no idea who Nancy Grace is , but just looking at the transcript MrsS posted in light of what I know about Elizabeth Smart, Grace's concluding remark sounds very patronizing, and Smart's experience just isn't something to get patronizing about, especially on-camera. If I were interviewing her and got a response like the one that preceded Grace's remark--and even if we'd had an understanding beforehand that her abduction experience was not off-limits to discuss--I'd just say, "All right. Well let's talk about that bill then..." or something of that nature. It's not for me to tell someone who's had experiences like that how they do or should feel about it. She may very well also be spacey, but I think that's beside the point here.

Was Elizabeth Smart the best person to speak about legislation on camera?

Obviously not, nbc. But Grace didn't have her on to talk about the bill, Grace had her on to see if she could squeeze some unnecessary drama (/ratings) out of Smart's past ordeal.

That was one of the poorest excuses for "journalism" I've ever seen.
