Amazing case-CHEESY Fox40 Ads
This is a case that has haunted me for years...its incredibly scary and I am happy to see it getting press. However, the ULTRA CHEESY Fox40 newscasters commercial really destroys the intensity of the show. Its that old school fake voices and it destroys the reality of the creepiness of the story. Additionally, HLN and few others who have recently released podcasts on the EARS/ONS/GSK ALL used the same interviews, same details...so many other podcasts that came before covered this WAY better.
