Amanda Knox’s Millions Are Her Dues: Meredith Kercher Has Not Lost Out

AMANDA Knox appears on just two front page:

“Amanda Knox insists: ‘I’m not a monster'” – Daily Express

“Knoxy haunted by the ghost of Meredith” – Daily Star

Together these headlines continue to promote the whispers that justice has not been done. The British press will not release Amanda Knox from their court of public opinion.
