Well said, @Thepoet, well said.
Ran across this tonight. Can't believe there will be yet another show about this.
'A Wilderness of Error' Trailer Revisits the Jeffrey MacDonald Triple-Murder Case 40 Years Later (Video)
FX has set a premiere date for the docuseries "A Wilderness of Error," based on the book of the same name by Errol Morris.
The series from producers Marc Smerling and Jason Blum, producers of HBO's "The Jinx" dives into the story of Army surgeon Jeffrey MacDonald, who was sent to prison for killing his family amid a storm of swirling narratives. Per FX, the series "challenges our very ability to find the truth all the while overshadowing a chilling possibility: MacDonald may be an innocent man."
McDonald has lived his entire life believing his own lies. He has a convincing story, that is compelling because he is a manipulative psychopath who is seductive and charismatic with his tale of woe.
Not buying the ticket for this ride.
Same here X 10!
I will still probably check it out, but with 30 years on this case, it does not change my mind about his guilt. Sure that there won't be anything new.
from the link:
Prior to the series premiere, Smerling will also launch a companion podcast, "Morally (In)Defensible," with Sony Music Entertainment. The podcast follows the story of journalist Joe McGinniss in the writing of his smash best seller "Fatal Vision," also about the MacDonald murders.
There really won’t be
