The New York Times > International > Middle East > News Analysis: Much at Stake in an Iraq Trial

This trial is certainly going to be better "entertainment" than the Laci Peterson, Kobe Bryant or Michael Jackson one.

One main difference to keep in mind is that Saddam's trial is not expected to end in a "not guilty" type verdict. The others could, and it would be accepted.

I get anxious thinking about the coverage. The meida will not be able to do anything but fall into ethnocentrically-influenced reporting. The coverage will examine the back and forth and fall into winning and losing analysis.

This will cause some Americans and foreigners to believe Saddam was gypped.

Sounds implausible? Wait.
