billy bush nancy grace making murderer The BillyBush NancyGrace MakingAMurderer Fight Is Pretty Damn Glorious
As a former tabloid editor who has gone head-to-head with Grace on live TV, on more than one occasion, I can attest to what a truly formidable force of nature the 56-year-old HLN host can be.
However, Bush gives every bit as good as he gets, showing no fear as he steps into the Nancy Grace lion’s den to battle her head-to-head, for a segment that airs on tonight’s episode of Access Hollywood—you can watch sneak peek video right here on Popdust.
Bush was goaded into the on-camera confrontation by Grace, following a good-natured yet sometimes heated Twitter tiff between the two over the smash hit Netflix docu-drama, which culminated in Grace taunting Bush for being “too scared” to face-off against her on TV.
Grace is at her glorious, insanely mad, indignant, take-no-goddamn-prisoners best throughout the debate—and, as ever, we love her all the more for it—during which, not surprisingly, she makes it crystal clear that she believes there’s no doubt Stephen Avery, the subject of Making a Murderer, is absolutely guilty as charged.
Meanwhile, Bush plays devil’s advocate—and deserves major props for the impassioned diatribe he busts out with, that results in Grace sitting silently for the longest period of time we have ever seen—a whopping 54 seconds no less.
Good job Mr. Bush!
BB kicks off:
Nancy, I’m gonna bet the farm that you take issue with the filmmakers claiming to have an objective view.
Oh, you betcha she does!
NG fires back:
People we have interviewed have told us that it was very clear during the interviews with the Netflix producers that they believed Avery to be innocent. And that that was their perspective.
Prompting BB’s impassioned diatribe
During which he draws comparison between the Making a Murderer filmmakers’ objectivity claim, (cue Nancy Grace busting out with the eye rolls) and Sean Penn’s claim that his truly dreadful and self-indulgent El Chapo interview was “misunderstood” by the stupid public, because they focused on the truly dreadful and self-indulgent content of the interview, instead of Penn’s intended message about the drugs war.
Bush goes on to present the argument that the filmmakers’ true intent was to expose the levels of injustice in the U.S. legal system, and how it is unfairly and grossly weighted in favor of rich defendants.
This guy had a lawsuit for $36 million against Manitowoc County, and he had to settle it for $400,000, which was just enough, and just in time, to pay his lawyers.
Someone else who doesn’t have that 400 grand has no chance if Manitowoc or any other Sheriff’s department, or any other law enforcement thinks you’re guilty in America, you’re done, and you don’t have a prayer. That’s their point.
Did YOU miss it?
Oh shit son….now you've done it...and sure enough....
I was wondering when that question was going to come into that sermon you just gave me Billy, let me tell you something…..
No, I did NOT miss the point, and as a matter of fact, I actually agree with part of what you said.
Wait? Whaaat? Has hell frozen over?!!
No, normal Nancy Grace service resumes immediately....
Check out what she has to say on the matter, in the clip below—and tune in to Access Hollywood tonight to watch the entire glorious face-off, which culminates in Grace storming off set mid-interview—and Bush getting in the final word.
"I think I win..."
Hahahaha. Watch and learn cousin Jeb.... watch and learn....
