When a presumption of jury prejudice arisesbecause of the widespread community impact of thedefendant’s alleged conduct and massive, inflamma-tory pretrial publicity, whether the Government mayrebut the presumption of prejudice, and, if so,whether the Government must prove beyond a rea-sonable doubt that no juror was actually prejudiced.
