I got a request from Brooke Carbo, a UA graduate student working at the Anniston Star, on Friday afternoon to discuss social media and the Casey Anthony trial.
In "Locals react to Casey Anthony trial," I compared it to Jersey Shore. Of course what I'm talking about here is the Italian Anthony family, with the salacious "Casey-out-partying-while-Caylee's-missing" photos that surfaced.
I didn't come to this conclusion on my own though — Roy Peter Clark actually came up with that, in a Poynter Institute chat I participated in last week.
I still stand by my quote, though.
