Jethmalani ko gussa kyoon aata hai?

Very angry Ram Jethmalani is lambasting media left and right. Jethmalani, who is defending Manu Sharma, the alleged killer of Jessica Lal in the mainstream's favourite case these days, was giving his piece of mind to Sagarika Ghose today on CNN IBN. What a tongue lashing he gave. The 'holier than thou' media takes things so much for granted that it needed some one like Jethmalani to take it on. Jethmalani has this sign board outside his gate proclaiming that he does not take any more cases. It seems he has taken this on just in reaction to the media trial of Manu Sharma. If media is to be believed, Manu Sharma has murdered Jessica Lal. It wants the courts just to attest this as a fact and hang Manu. For an average person following media on Jessica case, there is no argument. He 'knows' Manu has killed Jessica.
And now very asertive and forceful Jethmalani with a reputation as a a criminal lawyer makes him believe that he will prove it otherwise.
All said and done Jethmalani's anger at media is all very well but does he have to let it get channelised into something that suggests that nobody kiled Jessica.
It is yet to be seen.It would be interesting to see how he argues his case.
Now there is certainly no argument on that.

I do not think he suggested nobody killed Jessica. He just said he will guarantee a fair trial.

you have probabaly not read my post to the end. I've quoted Jethmalani on that in full and agreed that there is "certainly no argument on that."

Manu Sharma is entitled to a fair trial. I support Jethmalani to the hilt and second what he said.
