Summary
This program examines how TV has influenced our justice system. Experts and crime victims discuss how tabloid-style news coverage, cameras in the courtroom, and dramatized movie versions of scandalous crimes all conspire to corrupt justice. Host Bill Kurtis examines how the media affected several sensational cases, including those of Pamela Smart, the woman who convinced her 15-year-old lover to kill her husband, and New York's subway vigilante Bernhard Goetz.
