Media Convicts "Killer Nanny" Of Murder Of CNBC Exec's Children, $43 Trillion Lawsuit Story Nixed

Before trial and absent a confession, the media has labeled the nanny who allegedly slashed her own throat with enough force that she "fractured a vertebra in her neck" as the "Killer Nanny." Yoselyn Ortega allegedly killed two children of the Senior VP for CNBC Digital, which manages CNBC online content. The murders took place the day after CNBC Online posted a story that Spire Law Group had announced a $43 trillion "bankster" lawsuit which named US Attorney General Eric Holder, former US Treasury Secretary Timothy Geitner, and other officials of the present and former administrations. The same day of the murders, CNBC took down the post, but it was then re-posted by the Wall Street Journal, where it remains.

The Capitalbay.com headline clearly gives the impression that the nanny has confessed, while duly noting in much smaller type that she has not: "Killer Nanny's Chilling Words to About Why She 'Stabbed Children to Death After Massive Fight With Their Mother.'

The headline words 'Stabbed Children to Death After Massive Fight With Their Mother' are put in quotation marks as if uttered by the nanny herself.

The article seeks to paint a picture of "friction" between the nanny and the family of the murdered children, using what often are anonymous sources. Editorializing by adding the word "ominously" the article reads:

Ortega waived her right to have a lawyer present during questioning when she ominously told the detective, 'Marina knows what happened', a source told the New York Times.

The New York Times initially reported that the mother, Marina, found the nanny unconscious on the floor with her throat cut, near the murdered children. The next day, the police changed the story to the mother entering the bathroom and seeing the nanny stabbing herself in the neck. The police now say that she stabbed herself with "such force that she fractured a vertebra in her neck."

The first reporting on the murder in the NY Times begins:

A mother returned home to her luxury Upper West Side apartment on Thursday evening to find two of her children, a 2-year-old boy and a 6-year-old girl, fatally stabbed in a bathtub by the family’s nanny, the authorities said. The nanny herself lay on the floor, near a bloody knife, with an apparently self-inflicted slash to her own throat.

CNN reported on October 26th:

New York (CNN) -- A Manhattan mother returned home early Thursday evening to find two of her young children stabbed to death in a bathtub, as their nanny lay bleeding nearby, police said.

The next day CNN drastically changed its story from police by saying:

New York (CNN) -- The New York nanny suspected in the killings of two children in her care began knifing herself when their mother entered the bathroom and saw the bodies in the bathtub, police said Friday.

"We believe now that the nanny began to stab herself as the woman entered the room," Police Commissioner Ray Kelly told reporters in a revised account of Thursday's events.

"We initially thought that had already been done but now information is coming out that she did it as the mother entered the bathroom."

However, Capital Bay does not report the initial conflicting account and instead reports as a finding of fact that:

Marina Krim returned to her New York home on October 25 with her youngest daughter to find her children Lucia, six, and Leo, two, dead in a pool of blood before walking in on nanny Yoselyn Ortega stabbing herself in the throat.

The Capital Bay article quotes second and third-hand sources such as "RadarOnline" now "revealing" friction between the nanny and her employer, thus prejudicing any jury pool as to the nanny's guilt or innocence:

Ortega revealed from her hospital bed that she resented her employers because they kept telling her what to do and asked her to do the housework....

RadarOnline reported yesterday that Ortega 'told NYPD detectives that she was involved in an epic argument with Marina Krim the day before the children were tragically murdered.'

'Yoselyn also said that when she left at the end of the day before the murders, Marina ignored her when she said good-bye and this made her very, very angry,' Radar's source continued.

The children are survived by a younger sibling.

American jurisprudence has long relied on the firm presumption of innocence before a finding of guilt by a jury. Courts have found that media coverage which greatly taints the mindset of the public from which jurors will be drawn must be considered, in legal jargon, "poisoning the well," or "poisoning the jury pool."

Bump

Everyone should know about this story.

Keep bumping this, possibly biggest story of our lifetime

Honestly, this is the story of the century. It should be on front page news every day, moreso than OJ Simpson trial. The circumstances of CNBC publishing it on the same day that Kevin Krim's (VP and General Manager of CNBC Digital) children are killed are uncanny. Plus the story changing around whether the mother saw the nanny stabbing herself or finding her unconscious. Not to mention the very rare occasion (< 1%) when a woman tries to commit suicide by both slashing and stabbing herself in the neck. Not to mention with such force as to fracture one's own vertebrae makes all of this highly suspect.

To be fair, people have brought up some questionable things about Spire Law group, with them using a bar number that has expired on their webpage, and a questionable man that's supposedly a part of that firm. The counter argument to this, is that the lawyer working on behalf of this case for Spire Law is clean as a whistle (James Fiedler), with a valid bar license, and a clean record of no disciplinary action against him that has been practicing since 1965.

This story needs to be looked in a helluva lot more, I would especially like to know if the mom has made a statement clarifying whether the nanny was stabbing herself upon entering, or if she was found that way.

"It should be on front page

"It should be on front page news every day, moreso than OJ Simpson trial"

True, I don't understand why this story is not being covered, not even here?

Bump for a story worth keeping an eye on.

While they wave the Nanny, they are hiding something in the other hand...

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Yeah

I thinkwe should be keeping an eye on it too, it is all very quite regarding news on these murders and the lawsuit.

yeah, another good reason to do so is to keep it too high

profile to do away with the nanny.

Release the Sandy Hook video.

A fractured neck vertabra? I don't see how you

can apply that kind of force with no leverage, i.e. holding a target down against a floor or something. You can't do it to yourself. My guess is she was not supposed to have lived and somebody "messed up." Whoever it was is probably dead now too.

Release the Sandy Hook video.

Breaking: Nanny pleads not guilty

http://www.cnbc.com/id/49994636

Release the Sandy Hook video.

Everyone's riled up

in the comment section of that article. Many of them are going to "HR" the author, whatever that means (probably complain to moderator) for juxtaposing the murders with the lawsuit turning these brutal murders into another 'birther meme.' Wow.

and I might add, aren't they nasty little kittens when they get

mad?? My my.

Release the Sandy Hook video.

You better believe the Kos Kiddies are incensed because

Eric Holder is one of the defendants in the lawsuit, and other players too close for comfort to the administration. They spring instinctively like wild jackals in defense of The One who protects their Section 8 checks.

Obummer could be arrested by a phalanx of cops in front of a dozen witnesses staggering drunk down the highway median with a hooker on each arm, and they'd still yell "birther!" and "CT!"

Release the Sandy Hook video.

Timmy Geitner is no longer

Treas. Sec.? When did that happen?

“When a well-packaged web of lies has been sold gradually to the masses over generations, the truth will seem utterly preposterous and its speaker a raving lunatic.” – Dresden James

he still is.... but only until 'early' 2013

WASHINGTON, Nov 9 (Reuters) - Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner plans to stay until early next year to help the Obama administration forge a deal with lawmakers to avert the looming fiscal crisis, the White House said on Friday.

The Obama administration and Congress has less than two months to soften the blow from the "fiscal cliff" or $600 billion worth of tax hikes and spending cuts that will be sucked out of the economy next year if Washington fails to act.

"Geithner has indicated that he will stay on through inauguration and he will be, obviously, a key participant in the negotiations around the so-called fiscal cliff issues," a White House spokesman told reporters.

Geithner has long said he planned to step down if President Barack Obama won a second term, after spending grueling time dealing with the 2007-09 financial crisis first as the head of the New York Fed and then as Obama's Treasury chief.

Looks like lawsuit names "former" Treasury Secretary

Geitner.

My question: how do you fracture your own vertebra?
