"You (reporters) are all vermin". And the Conrad Black trial is off and running

    For as Barbara Amiel Black, in the company of her husband and stepdaughter, advanced into an elevator in the federal courthouse here in Chicago, she turned on two journalists, Stefani Langenegger of CBC Radio News and Joanna Walters of The Daily Express, and, clearly losing track of the script that she should be following in the many weeks ahead, snapped.

    This is what she said: "You are all vermin."

    The "you" in question would be the throng of media assigned to cover the fraud and racketeering trial of the downfallen media baron, Conrad Black. According to the two journalists in question, Amiel, just seconds before the doors closed, lashed out at a television producer with an even more ill-starred choice of words. Or rather, word.

    This is what she said: "Slut."


    This could be one of the great non murder trials of the last ten years.

    A whole country plus maybe a few others want to see Contrad Black get his.
