Julie, thanks for bringing that up. However, that misses my point that perhaps we as a society are poorer by supporting an industry that sensationalizes depravity. Granted, I am all for freedom of expression and consumption; but I still wonder if we wouldn't be better off as a society if we stopped gawking at these sick murderers.
If we are interested in these people, perhaps we should study them with academic detachment and empathy instead of with self-righteous intrigue. Another way to say this is if we are going to interview these people, they should be interviewed by boring PBS instead of glitzy Access Hollywood or Extra!.
