I'm going to say the same thing I say every time I hear that Deb and Jeremy are going to talk to the media again. GREAT! Fantastic. I'm so glad Lisa's case is getting some media exposure. I'm hoping this will cause her forum to have more activity, it's been depressingly quiet around here. This will give us something new to talk about.
I also hope that D&J say something in their interviews that is interesting enough for other media outlets to pick it up and Lisa gets even more media exposure beyond two segments.
Okay, I know it probably looks hypocritical for me to criticize the Irwins for not talking to the media and then wonder what their motive is for speaking now. But the thing is I am judging how they have dealt with the media OVERALL. Back in October, we heard about them having a deal with national media, wouldn't talk to local, whatever. For Halloween, they let a media outlet film their other children trick-or-treating. We don't hear from them at all during the entire month of November, December, and January. Why not? The media was still very interested in this case at the end of October, so why not keep talking to keep the spotlight on Lisa? Okay, so now they do an hour-long interview on Dr. Phil. His show is watched by millions, so I am glad Lisa got the exposure. A few months later, they put up on a website about Lisa but don't let any media outlets know about it. Wouldn't that be a great way to get Lisa back in the news? 3-4 months after Dr. Phil, they are coming back on our TV with appearances on two shows. So when I look at their overall media history, it's very hinky.
Also one more thing....They will talk to the media but not LE!!!!
I don't understand how anyone that cares about Lisa Irwin, and what happened to her, can see the 2 interviews as a negative thing. Lisa's case needs exposure. Any time, anywhere, everything helps.
Also, perhaps the parents want to use these media outlets, that reaches thousands, to make known a possible medical issue with Lisa. It was in an update on the Find Lisa Irwin website.
They need to talk to LE...NOT the media!

I hope like hell they say the wrong thing on national T.V.
I want nothing more than to see Deborah crying her eyes out because she's being charged with the murder of Lisa.
It is a catch 22 with me. On one hand i am excited to see if there is anything new being reported, and to see Lisa's face in the media again. BUT on the other hand, i have many questions as to why now?
I just hope that this interview will be about Lisa and not about the negativity surrounding Deb.
If it doesn't make sense, it is a LIE ........Judge Judy
I wonder how many/which shows the parents will appear on for the 1st anniversary?
I always hold my breath when DB and JI give media interviews, hoping they slip up and say something that could break open the case
Whilst being on Websleuths makes me more aware of what evil there is in the world, it also reminds me that the best people are among us as well.
Love you all!
... BPD investigators could not understand why the Ramsey family had taken refuge behind a wall of attorneys so early in the investigation. They had expected the family to be pounding down their doors wanting information about the status of the search for their daughter's killer.
-- eerily similar, no? lawyering up early only says one thing to many ppl invested in both cases...
does anyone know exactly when DB and JI obtained the services of lawyers a, b, c, ... ??

Unlike the JBR case where the child was found murdered, the Irwin case is one of a missing infant, and I just don't think the parents have tried very hard to find her once they had their falling out with LE. I'm not saying Deborah IS culpable, but I suspect she is.
Concerning JI's work hours, I attempted to look for them and found this article. I hope the rest of the media hasn't derived their articles and reporting based on this.
Found this article detailing the timeline. This was put in print as fact and they will not name the SOURCE. I call BS on the entire article. If the source is anonymous then we don't have to accept the article as true or factual.

Since when are news source identities actually revealed? The journalism business runs off of getting news/tips off of unidentified (to the public) but reliable (to them) sources. In fact journalists have went to court in the past and risked going to jail rather than reveal identities of their sources.
ETA: So I think it's way more likely that the parents have been using the $$$ to pay bills, help with finances, etc than it is that they are just waiting around until they can buy a huge house. I doubt they made enough to make a purchase that will require payments over a period of years. And let's pretend, they did go on a pretty luxurious vacation over the summer. Would the local media even know/report on it? Although, we would've probably heard about it on social media.
