Conrad Black Trial: Law Blog Coverage

I noticed the other day that MacLeans, Toronto Life, and Canadian Business Online all have blogs dedicated to the Conrad Black trial. I also noticed a dearth of posts from lawyer blogs. Business magazine and newspaper coverage? yes. But no legal experts.

Does anyone else see the lack of legal blog commentary as a missed opportunity? With high profile cases like this, or the Pickton trial, shouldn't there be a few journalists out there looking for third party commentary?

Canadian criminal law blogs should have been all over this.

Maybe the legal issues just are not there to make them interesting. From the outside, both these trials are repellent due to their facts. Maybe that has an influence.

Possible, but from a marketing perspective, either relaying the facts or adding additional commentary are what blogs are all about, right?

And given the amount of traffic this post has generated, I still say opportunity missed...
