Proof the world is ending: I agree with Nancy Grace

I'll admit it: I watch Jon & Kate Plus Eight. In all of the episodes I've seen, I've never listened to Jon Gosselin speak and thought, "You sir, have missed your vocational calling in the Rocket Sciences," but I also didn't think he was a complete idiot. Recently, my view has changed.
Let's not even get into the wisdom of dating a 22-year-old, or partying on a yacht in France while your wife is back home in Pennsylvania caring for your eight children. The man simply does not know the meaning of the phrase, "quit while you're ahead." To wit: his ridiculous defense on Larry King of his decision to halt production on Jon & Kate as soon as it became Kate Plus Eight, and his Ed Hardy-wearing ass got fired.
Gosselin also thought it would be wise to go on The Insider and square off against caustic defender of "justice," Nancy Grace. In this appearance, he further defends his actions, and claims that all of the decisions he makes are for his kids. Spoiler alert: This does not go well for him.
Jon tries to assert over and over again that his decision to pull the plug on the TLC show is not because he is no longer getting paid for it, but rather due to the fact that he has come to the sudden realization that it is hurting his children. Nancy Grace cuts straight through his crap and tears him a new one.
In the first video, Grace accuses Jon of always making it all about him, blasts both him and Kate for being self-absorbed and arguing constantly in front of their children, and mocks him for hiding behind his lawyer instead of answering questions. Throughout the clip, I found myself simultaneously nodding my head along with her and cringing. Nodding my head because she's dead on about everything she says, and cringing because it's Nancy freaking Grace.
In the second clip, she gets even better, saying that perhaps he should spend more time taking care of his children and making sure they don't require years of expensive therapy, instead of bopping around with Hailey Glassman. She even makes fun of his douchey earrings. Again, all fair points.
Check out the videos below and decide. Who won? Did Nancy Grace actually come out on top? Do you feel dirty?
