Jackson verdict reached

As I write, the breaking news is that a verdict has been reached in the Michael Jackson trial. I was fairly certain a very quick verdict would be reached, and when that didn’t happen I thought there’d be a long deliberation – that hasn’t happened either. So I’m not sure what that indicates, and the verdict has yet to be announced. Unfortunate timing for the papers – by the time the verdict is announced, there’ll be next to no time to reorganise the whole paper. Though I expect the bones of the story will already have been written, and it’ll just be a case of fleshing out the descriptive detail. There’ll be more from me on the verdict tomorrow, or maybe later tonight if you’re lucky. Bet you can’t wait.
