The article I linked to is a review of the movie West of Memphis by the Santa Fe (NM) Reporter. Now the Reporter is the kind of newspaper they call an alt-weekly or alternative weekly. Much in the same vein as the Village Voice. These alt-weeklies have long been a source of Damien Echols support but in this review we can see a glimmer of hope that light bulbs are starting to flicker in the minds of some reporters.
The critic, David Riedel, says in his review that it’s hard to see the other side of the argument, meaning the viewpoint that Echols is actually guilty. However he does see fault in the WM3 hype machine’s latest so-called suspect…
All the famous people who supported the three pop up, including Eddie Vedder, Natalie Maines and Peter Jackson. And though the filmmakers try to pin the killings on another person, it doesn’t quite work.
Now if a movie critic can see this why can’t so-called investigative journalists?
