I was interviewed for tonight’s new episode of On The Case. The episode is called Evidence of Deception. I must say, I am disappointed by the dishonesty and disingenuousness shown, but not surprised. There were several factual errors that were probably not errors, but production decisions. The “District Attorney” shown was Richard Bowen, who was not the DA at the time of the trial, but an assistant DA. The District Attorney was a guy named John Young, who has since been mercifully voted out. They left out a number of important points, which I will address in a future piece. They also left out Dr. Joe Edd Morris completely, even though he was instrumental in setting my client up to be victimized by a specialist in hypnosis named Steve Rhodes. Rhodes is billed as “the human lie detector.” One hardly knows how to respond to a guy who professes he can always tell when someone is lying. More on that when I am less angry and more rested.
Long story short, they left out almost all of the long interview they did with me. All but about ten or fifteen seconds, skipping the main points for lesser points. What I had to say did not fit their meme, and I could sense the frustration of the producer when I wouldn’t say what they wanted me to say.
I may do a professionally produced video, or several, and start posting some stuff on YouTube or Vimeo. I have a friend who owns a small production company and creates TV commercials and will talk with him about it. I’m still trying to set up my site, so I have a full plate.
Watch this spot. I am not done yet.
Comments and ideas welcome. Also suggestions for dealing with this kind of media hit job.
