Mike Nifong Disbarred

In a development rating the big siren on the Drudge Report home page, the Duke Lacrosse prosecutor, Mike Nifong, has been disbarred by the State Bar of North Carolina.
No doubt he deserved it, and, from Day 1 of that sad business, I found Mr. Nifong's loudmouth TV-camera-chasing manner extremely offputting. It may be fitting, but I find the television/internet lynch mob atmosphere surrounding the bar proceedings repulsive. Rather like last week's media festival over Paris Hilton. Mr. Nifong has been disbarred, disgraced, and has other legal problems confronting him. Let the parties and the courts deal with them. But enough of Nifong TV, every hour on the hour.
