I was pleased by Howard Rosenberg’s March 13 column about TV’s “Hard Copy.” As an investigator for Dr. Jeffrey MacDonald, I can testify to the fact that “Hard Copy’s” treatment of MacDonald was beyond unethical. Not only did its reporters deceive MacDonald prior to doing their hatchet job on him, the promised information (sex letters) was nonexistent.
This kind of distortion is sleazy. Yet, as Rosenberg pointed out, many TV viewers actually watch this show as if it is news.
