Nancy Grace Parking Lot Scandal: Grace Caught Faking Remote Satellite Interview From Feet Away [WATCH]

Nancy Grace parking lot scandal: In yet another example of the sensationalism of the media, Nancy Grace was caught holding a split-screen "remote" interview with another reporter in the same parking lot. Nancy Grace was covering the Cleveland kidnapping story for Headline News and interviewed Ashley Banfield for CNN from a parking lot in Phoenix.

Despite the fact that the two anchors were only feet away, Nancy Grace held a "remote" split screen interview with Banfield from the other side of the parking lot. Or the space-time continuum shifted due to Grace's power. We're guessing it's the former.

Video reveals that both anchors are in...Phoenix. Hmm. Odd. Traffic moving behind Grace and Banfield reveals that either every vehicle looks identical and travels at the same speed in Phoenix, or the two anchors didn't even bother to face in different directions.

Yet they're still talking to each other as if it was a "remote" satellite interview - Grace even pretends to have difficulty hearing Banfield in her earpiece. Obviously, Grace is demonstrating Anderson Cooper-level journalistic bravery, phoning in a report from her on-the-ground breaking news coverage out in the war-torn wilderness of suburbia.

Maybe they went to Taco Bell together beforehand?

Granted, Grace and Banfield are on different networks...but they're owned by the same parent company, and if they were actually competitors, they wouldn't be talking to each other.

Later, Banfield would conduct another interview, this time about the Jodi Arias case, which Banfield and Nancy Grace were both in Phoenix to cover, with another Headline News host. That host was in a different location than Grace, but still in the same parking lot; a third interview was conducted with a Headline News regular pundit somewhere else in Phoenix - also outdoors, also presumably nearby. Maybe at the Olive Garden down the street. Classy. Oh, and there's a CNN reporter standing across the street from her.

In short, it's a long interview involving four anchors in one city covering the same story on three programs on two networks owned by one company. And the news is never biased. Ever.
