The Phil Spector Trial: We Watch Court TV So You Don't Have To (06/22)

June 26, 2007 11:19 AM ET

WHAT HAPPENED YESTERDAY?
LA criminologist Lynne Herold, the last witness for the prosecution, took the stand once more for cross-examination by the defense. Herold, who previously put Spector at close proximity to Lana Clarkson when she was shot, had to deal with a full-court press from Spector lawyer Linda Kenney-Baden, who asked Herold virtually identical questions over and over again in an attempt to reveal flaws in Herold's procedure.

IS THIS GOOD OR BAD FOR SPECTOR?
Both. While Kenney-Baden was successful in casting Herold's testimony as opinion rather than fact, her extremely aggressive questioning style came off as overbearing and was uncomfortable to watch.

HAIR & WARDROBE UPDATE:
Spector went for a blue theme, donning a navy-blue jacket and tie accented by a periwinkle shirt.

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
