Wrongfully Convicted, Amanda Knox Describes Initial Media Coverage Of Italian Murder Case
Amanda Knox spent nearly four years in an Italian prison following her conviction for the murder of her roommate Meredith Kercher, though she maintained her innocence from the start.
“It doesn’t matter who you are. It doesn’t matter what the truth is,” says Amanda about initial media coverage of the case, adding, “What matters is a story, what people are telling themselves, and projecting their worst fears and feelings onto you. I felt like a blank screen and anybody could decide who I was in their own mind.”
