Post Mortem – Death Investigation In America

Post Mortem – Death Investigation In America
Post MortemCountless primetime television dramas portray forensic pathology as a glamorous realm filled with intrepid doctors who use whiz-bang technology to solve all manners of crime. But a new Frontline special -- a joint venture with ProPublica and NPR -- reveals that the actual world of death investigations is in crisis. Elected coroners oversee a system that is underfunded, unregulated, and rife with conflicts of interest. The result is that untolled murderers go free, and many families simply never learn how and why their loved ones died. Joining us from New York City is Lowell Bergman, the producer and correspondent of Post Mortem, which airs tonight at 9 pm on WGBH-2.

The Great Back Bay Blackout
After a smoky electrical transformer fire knocked out power to about 21,000 homes and businesses, sections of the neighborhood are getting back online. But problems are expected to persist into tonight. We’ll have the latest.

Guests:
  Garrett Quinn, WGBH contributor and author of the Less is More blog on Boston.com
  Meg Mainzer-Cohen, president of the Back Bay Association
  Marcia Gregg, a Back Bay resident who (along with her family) lost power (and still doesn’t have it)
  David Jacobs, publisher and editor The Boston Courant, covers Back Bay, South End Beacon Hill and Fenway

The Baffler Is Back
The self-described “journal that blunts the cutting edge” is back in print after a two-year hiatus. The Baffler’s latest issue of scathing media, political and cultural criticism hits newsstands tomorrow. And no cow is sacred. (Not even the one that pays its bills).

Guests:
  John Summers, editor of The Baffler
  Thomas Frank, journalist and author of books like What’s The Matter With Kansas? and most recently, Pity The Billionaire. Founding editor of The Baffler
