People had a lot of things to say about the Courser/Gamrat 20/20 episode, neither the most strident defenders nor the most ferocious haters seemed to be satisfied-that's a good sign.
I found it funny a few were expecting some bombshell new information or something, don't quite get that one... I thought they did a great job with an immensely difficult issue.
I do wish they talked about some other facets of the story, but isn't that always the case? I can't complain, they featured me multiple times and were diplomatic in calling WMP "controversial." :)
Also, they do follow-ups all the time-I wouldn't be surprised if we see another 15 minute update about all this at some point that includes more on the lawsuit against the House and some other things. We'll see...
And I will note that pretty much only WMP and MIRS reported the false implications against Chad Livengood and both were absolutely BLASTED for it. That facet of the story surprised those not militantly watching *every* development of the case, but they were put in context and part of the scandal-they were fair game.

It's not exactly "20/20," but a comprehensive WMP piece on this scandal is in the works and should be quite interesting. It may be the first WMP podcast, something that is long overdue!
What did you think of the episode if you watched it?
