Central Park Five on PBS

Recommended Posts

I am curious did anyone watch the Ken Burn's Central Park Five documentary last night on PBS. I have to say while well done it was disturbing on many levels. The one I found most disturbing was the media not digging into the story and just contributing to the feeding frenzy. There was no looking into the facts or thinking something here doesn't add up. Instead it was a common case of the easy sensational story with little questioning or fact checking.

I watched this. It was so devastatingly sad. It's atrocious that the five have never gotten some sort of money from NYC.

Linda Fairstein, one of the prosecuting attorneys, is now a successful novelist. Another, Elizabeth Lederer, is a law professor at Columbia. Neither have publicly apologized or acknowledged their current success and fame comes from the wrongful conviction of children.
