I was a little late in watching 2017’s The Murder of Laci Peterson. This is an interesting series about Scott Peterson and his conviction for the murder of his pregnant wife in 2002. The program raises serious issues.
I do recall the sensational media storm of this trial, and in retrospect I feel kind of duped by the whole 24/7 news thing. Uncomfortably, I must admit this was not outside my own fault.
My generation was the first to appreciate all-day-long news coverage. This does not seem to fly with younger folks nowadays, and for good reason.

“Unlikely Pairing” on Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath, reveals a strange bedfellows relationship between Scientology and the Nation of Islam (NOI).
I’m not that familiar with the NOI, but I have heard questionable and overtly hateful speech against whites and Jews. This had led to my perception that this organization is more of a fringe-type extremist group for black people. Yet, I can’t blame the black community for espousing principles of independence and a non-reliance on the suppressive white man.
