Being A Woman Is Terrifying, So Why Does True Crime Make Me Feel Better?

When I was 14, I spent the last night of Thanksgiving weekend watching two specials on unsolved homicides, and over the course of a couple of hours, I was introduced to the murders of the Zodiac Killer and the slaying of Elizabeth Short, aka the Black Dahlia. I was horrified, consumed and intrigued, waltzing into science class the next morning to explain the cases to my friends, who didn’t want to hear about them.

Gillibrand Calls for Franken to Step Aside: ‘We as Elected Leaders’ Should Be Held to a ‘Higher Standard’

Wednesday at a press conference on Capitol Hill, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) said her colleague Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) should resign in light of several sexual harassment allegations made against him.

Gillibrand said, “I think when we have to start talking about the differences between sexual assault and sexual harassment and unwanted groping, you are having the wrong conversation. We need to draw a line in the sand and say none of it is okay. None of it is acceptable. We as elected leaders should absolutely be held to a higher standard, not a lower standard, and we should fundamentally be valuing women, and that is where this debate has to go.”

Islamic Educational Television

Forensic Files, on the HLN network, shows how science helps solve crimes. In “Honor Thy Father,” a 2004 episode now being rebroadcast, the show opens a window on crime, Islam, and terrorism alike.

Zein Isa, born in Palestine, brought his family to the United States in 1985 and opened a grocery store in St. Louis. He liked living stateside because the United States was an easy place to “rip off,” as Guarding the Secrets author Ellen Harris makes clear in the Forensic Files episode. As it turned out, the grocery store was part of his cover.

Isa was also a partisan of the PLO and working with the Abu Nidal network, which planned to bomb the Israeli embassy in Washington. So the FBI bugged the residence of Zein Isa, his Brazilian wife Maria, and their daughter Palestina. Tina, as she was known, had lived in Brazil,

10 Great ‘Forensic Files’ Episodes and How to Find Them on Netflix

Where to Stream:

Forensic Files


  • Netflix

  • Hulu
  • More Options

Why watch a true-crime series that stopped production in 2011?

Well, first of all, because everyone else does. Forensic Files is shown in syndication on TV in 142 countries and on YouTube. HLN has six-hour marathons.

The series stays fresh because it never uses pre-commercial teasers or the other repetition that shows like Dateline and 48 Hours employ to pad themselves into an hour or more. And there’s no Keith Morrison or Erin Moriarty prodding murder victims’ moms and dads to melt down on camera. Instead, the docuseries uses a half-hour unsensationalized whodunit format with off-camera narration by the late Peter Thomas. (He and Don “In a World” LaFontaine are considered the greatest male voice artists of their generation.)

Now, thanks

HLN moving Cupp, Banfield programs to earlier time slots

CNN sister-network HLN announced changes to its lineup on Thursday, including moving shows hosted by former CNN “Legal View” host Ashleigh Banfield and former “Crossfire” co-host S.E. Cupp.

Starting Dec. 4, Cupp’s “Unfiltered” will move from the 7 p.m. ET time slot to 5 p.m. ET.

The news analysis program premiered on HLN in August and has struggled to gain ratings, often finishing last on the channel in total viewers and in the important advertiser-friendly 25-54 demographic between the hours of 4 p.m. ET and 11 p.m. ET.

“Prime Time Justice With Ashleigh Banfield” will also be moving from its 8 p.m. ET time slot to an earlier time on Dec. 4 and it will air an extra hour from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays.

Banfield’s program will be also be changed to “Crime Justice With Ashleigh Banfield” to reflect the out-of-prime-time start.

Ninety-nine things on but nothing to watch

A few nights ago, I was in charge of the remote for a while and decided to see if there was anything on television that I wanted to watch. I proceeded to the lowest channel and went up from there on a mission of discovery. Oh, yeah, don’t they have a channel by that name? Yes, they do, but back to the story: After about ten minutes I reached the limit of my available channels without finding one thing on that I wanted to watch. Why, you ask?

That question occurred to me as well, so I decided to go on a mission of discovery. Whoops, that channel again! Anyway, I proceeded to make a list of every program that was on, and I assigned each program to a specific category or genre. For example, I began with

Road rage, a bullet to the head — and the frantic effort to save a 4-year-old

CLEVELAND — The bullet exploded from the gun’s barrel, spiraling through cool night air toward a gray SUV’s back passenger-side window. Carter “Quis” Hill was perched in his car seat on the other side of the glass, and as it shattered all around him, the round burrowed into his head, an inch above the right temple. From the boy’s hand slipped a bright-red plastic Spider-Man mask he’d gotten for his 4th birthday, nine days earlier.

A white Pontiac blew past, disappearing into the distance. Carter’s mother, Cecelia Hill, knew it was the same car that had been chasing them for three miles before someone inside fired eight shots at her 2004 Volkswagen in what police would call an extraordinary act of road rage.

Now she shoved her foot against the brake, squealing to a stop in the middle of Interstate 90. In the back seat, her son and daughter snapped forward against
