Apparently, Bill O’Reilly and Matt Lauer are not the only ones who had some heated arguments over the death of multi-awarded singer Whitney Houston – so are Nancy Grace and Dan Abrams!
HLN host Nancy Grace and Mediaite founder/ABC legal analyst Dan Abrams were guests at ‘Good Morning America’ on Thursday. The host of the show, Robin Roberts asked Nancy Grace about the comments she made earlier this week regarding the death of singer Whitney Houston.
According to reports, Nancy Grace told CNN Newsroom anchor Brooke Baldwin, “I’d like to know who was around her, who — if anyone — gave her drugs… following alcohol and drugs, and who let her slip, or pushed her, underneath that water? Apparently, no signs of force or trauma to the body. Who let Whitney Houston go under her water?”
Here is the defense of Nancy Grace regarding her questions:
“Well, if you look at the entire sentence, I understand that some people would consider that jarring or harsh. But there is nothing delicate or nice about a murder, a death, an unexpected death, or an autopsy. And that is what autopsies are for. I know most people aren’t exposed to medical examiners, autopsies, morgues, medical examiner investigations. But that’s why you have an autopsy, to determine — when something looks to be not a natural death or an accidental death — was it a murder? Was it a heart attack? Was it an overdose? That’s what they were looking at. That’s what they had to find out.”
Dan Abrams asked, “But Nancy, can’t you just say, ‘You know what, I was wildly speculating and I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have said it. It was inappropriate.’”
Nancy Grace apparently did not agree with Dan Abrams that her comments amounted to speculation. Nancy Grace continued, “The reality is that an autopsy is a search for the truth. And if anyone loved Whitney Houston as I did, that is what medical examiners do. They looked to see if it was a homicide, if it was natural causes, or accident.”
“But that’s not the reality of this particular investigation,” Dan Abrams retaliated. “Did anyone who is associated with this investigation say that they were looking into who pushed her under the water?” to which Nancy Grace replied, “You’re arguing with me over semantics.”
“No. No, I’m not,” Dan Abrams responded. “I’m arguing with you over going on television and making a comment that I think was was rightfully viewed as inappropriate.”
