So an appeal can be submitted by the defense because there was too much pro-death penalty publicity, but the prosecution cannot make an appeal if there was too much anti-death penalty news! That's the facts!

Same thing can be said if the murderer's family gets up and cries, begs, and pleas on the stand -- no appeal allowed, but if the victim's family & friends do the same thing, not one, but many appeals for years.
