More About The Murder Business by Mark Fuhrman
 
 
 
Overview
Crime stories fascinate the public. But between factual news stories, overblown "human interest" reports and salacious murder mystery expos s, it's difficult to tell where news ends and entertainment begins. Mark Fuhrman, best-selling author of Murder in Brentwood, explores this fine line and how it is increasingly being crossed, revealing new and shocking details on such highprofile cases as JonBenet Ramsey, Martha Moxley and Chandra Levy. In The Murder Business, Fuhrman argues that the media's approach to covering crime ("if it bleeds, it leads") has allowed many criminals to get away with murder and impeded the search for justice. The Murder Business presents a compelling plea for journalists, cops, and citizens to demand higher ethical standards in the pursuit of justice.
