Just to highlight why listening to the podcast isn't enough evidence to say the jury failed, we have SK openly admitting her reporting was not always dispassionate:

Koenig admitted that she had a complicated relationship with her subject, who is serving life in prison.

“Sometimes, as uncomfortable as it is to admit it, there’s a little bit of flirting going on,” Koenig said, of listening back on her reporting. “I’m a little cringe-y looking back. I’m laughing too much. It sounds like we’re friends.”
When a reporter admits something like that, isn't it reasonable to think perhaps her reporting wasn't as fair and authoritative as it seems?
