Very interesting post
by Eric Volz, an American who was held for a year on trumped-up murder charges in Nicaragua's prison system. His book, Gringo Nightmare
, provides a nauseating insider perspective. CBS apparently canceled a show that was being done about Eric (coincidentally?) as the network was preparing to launch Survivor: Nicaragua. Yet another example of the mainstream media caring more about entertaining and titillating (rather than INFORMING) the public.
