“I have been a subscriber of this podcast for a long time but am unsubscribing today. They’ve veered from unbiased, deep-probing to agenda-driven podcast. This isn’t the podcast it once was and that’s a shame. If I want my news fed to me with liberal doses of bias and agenda, I’ll watch mainstream media. Criminal has joined their leagues. Disappointing. Recently, Phoebe profiled a self-confessed and convicted bank robber who escaped from prison, feloniously forged a birth certificate and Social Security card, and bribed a DMV employee to get a fake drivers license. He created a new identity and lived freely for almost 40 years. The show seemed to glorify this criminal and give him a free pass because he was a “good father and good husband.” The “rehabilitated” convict laughed and did not voice remorse, but they still glorified him in the episode. I see nothing charming, funny, or worthy of glorification in this story. And this is not the only story I have heard on CRIMINAL depicting criminals as martyrs or heroes. Am I wrong for not admiring or rallying behind this man, a liar and thief who committed multiple crimes but got a free pass because he went on to be a good father and husband? Shouldn’t he have been a good father and husband regardless? And does that minimum standard really exonerate one from crimes committed? I don’t think so.
The anti-police rhetoric is as annoying as Phoebe’s breathy enunciation.”
