The story: kidnapping survivor Elizabeth Smart goes on Nancy Grace's CNN show to promote sex-offender legislation, and Grace digs for prurient details and cues the tears for victims everywhere with lines like, "You were such a little girl."

Smart proves her humanity not by guiding us through the mind of the child-victim, but by rolling her eyes and changing the subject. "I'm not here to give an interview on that. I'm here to push this bill through," she reprimands Grace, who can't resist one more little dig before dropping her shovel.
