The Morality of True Crime Entertainment

True crime media has a disproportionate influence over public opinion. Investigative documentaries, especially those that heavily imply a person's guilt or innocence, can easily convince viewers of their conclusions. This inadequately informed consensus can have disastrous consequences, such as waves of hate mail directed at unfortunate individuals linked to a crime investigation.
