Nancy Grace apparently stormed out of a radio interview after being accused of exploiting tragedy for ratings.
I give her credit for finding ONE missing child in the 10 years she was on the air (as far as I know that's the one and only case she ever solved) but I have always maintained she is the complete opposite of John Walsh, who legitimately cares about the cases he profiles. Nancy treated them like porn. The way even a young Elizabeth Smart had to call her out that she didn't want to relive the horrible details of her kidnapping is unacceptable. And this sounds weird coming from a guy whose website profiles wanted fugitives, but the way she assumed everyone's guilt without any facts was also disgusting.
Not sure what Nancy Grace was expecting either. She was going on a show with two guys who replaced radio shock jocks Opie and Anthony. She should have done research before agreeing to be on a show like that.
In any case I'm glad her show that doesn't solve anything is ending or has ended as I haven't been paying attention since hopefully it means more Hunt reruns on HLN. A show where cases actually do get solved.

I didn't used to mind Nancy Grace. Yeah, I thought she could be a little forceful, but nothing about her really bothered me. And then HLN had to give her a talk show. That, in my opinion, is where everything went off the rails.
You mentioned the infamous Elizabeth Smart interview where Grace kept trying to pressure the young woman (I think she was 19-20 at the time) into discussing her kidnapping case, even when Elizabeth was clearly uncomfortable about it, to the point where she actually called out Grace live on the air about it. But there's actually one case where, in my opinion, Grace did something worse.
After Trenton Duckett went missing, his mother, Melinda, appeared on Grace's show to talk about her son's case. The entire time, Grace grilled this woman on her choices, decisions and actions leading up to and after Trenton's disappearance. I've never seen the episode, but apparently it got really heated. Days later, Melinda Duckett committed suicide, leaving a note that, while I don't think blamed Grace directly, seemed to imply that her harsh treatment had at least something to do with it.
Yeah, Melinda's actions after her son's disappearance were suspicious and police certainly wanted to talk to her. But if she knew anything, those secrets went to the grave with her, and 10 years later, Trenton is still missing.
And this whole debacle with the radio show, to me, is hilarious. She can trash talk all these people and get right in their face, but when the tables are turned she can't even take it. Nice to know how your guests feel, isn't it?
