    This week Datline had an investigative piece on this story. The whole thing was pretty weird but they did a good job presenting the story. The movie might be interesting as well.

    Another douche bag being glorified by the media.

    Dateline's pretty sure he killed the guy, they didn't seem to glorify him. Just about everyone thought McAfee was psychotic.

    I was interested in this story so I decided to watch Dateline. Their report was a huge disappointment. They took what should have been a 30 minute segment and stretched it out to 2 hours with endless commercials and constant rehashing of the tale. I really hate the constant 1-2 minutes of previews about what is "coming up next". Why can't they just report the story without treating the audience like fools? The one good thing about this was it reminded me of the reasons I stopped watching these tabloid type news programs......:lol:

    As for McAfee, he's a weirdo. I believe he paid someone to kill his neighbor because the guy poisoned his dogs...looks like McAfee will get away with it too....

    Soap operas will sell if packaged properly.

    There are too many commercials on network tv but I was interested in the story too.

    Did you see the guy telling the story that McAfee took all of the bullets out of that gun but one then put the gun to his own head and shot six times. Here's the story:

    Needless to say, Davis’ book looks to be a real pageturner and promises “a harrowing tale of ambition, paranoia, sex, and madness.”

    Desperate houswives are lining up as we speak...

    There's a video of him on that page talking about the faked heart attack.

    Yeah, but the Belize government probably has royalty rights on the book and an option on the movie contract. This is a class B+ marketing effort.
