Jostling for the limelight

Lisa Irwin is a 10-month-old toddler that has gone missing for days. As is quite the rage these days, the mainstream media showers 24/7 coverage, because, well, Lisa is a cute kid.

And what do the ones in charge of recovering the kid, do?

Make themselves available for photo-ops.
More than a dozen investigators and firefighters crowded around an opening created in the old wooden deck to access the well. A yellow and red tripod was set up to lower firefighters into the well. But several hours later, the well had been drained and nothing was found.
This was the latest attempt to make progress in a case that has baffled investigators and left them grasping for new ideas.
"It's an abandoned house, there's a well under the deck. We're searching it because it's the right thing to do," Capt. Steve Young told today as police and firefighters dismantled part of the house's deck in order to access the well.
Yes, it is the right thing to do. A dozen investigators and firefighters. Really? You need that many to look into a well?
This search came a few hours after a family member said Lisa's mother, Deborah Bradley, is preparing to be charged in connection with her baby's disappearance. The family member, Ashley Irwin, said the family thinks Bradley's arrest is "inevitable."
I guess we'll start seeing a lot more than Nancy Grace's the boob's nipple on the TEEVEE.

And I honestly cannot say which is worse.

I think the Mommy did it.

I just wanted to get that in there before Nancy Grace starts her outrage - seeing how she will be the next eliminated from DWTS.
