Of course.

It's been a pretty frequent complaint of mine.

I tell thee, 'tis not half so fair as thou
Or any man that breathes on earth.

If you have a problem with it, don't watch it. Media is like any other business, they cater to their customers. Customers turn away, businesses adjust to lure back customers.

Arguably it is (and I'd say so in many cases) counteractive to the judiciary and anathema to the principles of an impartial and informed electorate and jury. People call for blood with ease when the mass popular media calls them to condemn.
