Channel 7's General Manager's Lawyer Opposes Trying Cases in the Media

Today brought a sad story that the WHDH (Channel 7) general manager, Randi Goldklank, was arrested on various charges after she was allegedly drunk and disorderly while exiting a plane at Logan Airport.

Her lawyer, David Eisenstadt, in court on her behalf, declined comment, "saying he did not believe in trying a case in the media," according to the Boston Globe.

Meanwhile, WHDH continued to try cases in the media today, including Goldklank's case, Boston College football player Brady Smith's arrest on rape and breaking and entering, the mental evaluation for accused student in a bomb plot, and so on. Maybe Goldklank was put on administrative leave because her lawyer contradicted station policy about what they should be covering?
