I’ve already posted about triple-convicted child killer Damien Echols and his ‘magick’ show here. Basically, the New York Times published a puff piece about his charlatanism and did not stray from the official West Memphis 3 narrative. You know, the usual, wrongly convicted, DNA evidence blah blah blah.
More recently, The Guardian, another stalwart of journalism, published almost the exact same piece as the New York Times. I had to make sure the two articles were submitted by different authors. It almost feels like the Damien Echols has his own personal press corps that he pushes his latest appearances onto.
Much like the New York Times piece, The Guardian piece was written by a woman. Not that I have anything against female journalists, however, it seems like the WM3 PR team like to seek out female journalists who are sympathetic and/or vulnerable to Echols’ tall tales. A certain correspondent for 48 Hours comes to mind. The reason I think these journalists fall into Echols’ web of deceit is that they identify with the child killer more because of his ‘romance’ with main squeeze sycophant Lorri Davis. I asked my cohort Lady Gray, an actual lady, if this sounded misogynistic. She said no and added that she thinks that these journalists may also have a maternal-like reaction to Echols’ BS since he was young when he, Misskelley, and Baldwin killed Christopher Byers, Michael Moore, and Stevie Branch.
If you’re angry at me because of my thoughts on these suggestible journalists maybe you should also be mad at the convicted child killer for exploiting them for his personal gain.
