Cable News Covers Ariel Castro, The Cleveland Kidnapper, Pleading Guilty

The man who kidnapped Amanda Berry and other young girls in Cleveland pled guilty today, and cable news covered it live. HLN, CNN, MSNBC, Fox News and even Fox Business covered some or all of the hearing live.

Ariel Castro kidnapped and held Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight for years, with Berry giving birth to his child. With his guilty plea he will get life in prison with no parole, plus 1,000 years.

He will not get the death penalty, and the women he kidnapped will not have to testify.

“I knew I was pretty much going to get the book thrown at me,” Castro said, coldly, at the hearing.

The revelation of the kidnapping dominated the news cycle in May.
