And this a few days after the rapid debunking of Historys Amelia Earhart photo........

That channel has turned into total crap

Dig this, Lars

The guy whose book I've been suggesting people purchase was allegedly ( I believe him ) told by the History Channel people to NOT criticize the program/series.

I can think of one reason...that he was asked to sign a non-disclosure contract and now has to live up to it.

However, the fact the History Channel felt it was necessary to 'warn' him about making negative remarks tells me that they, the History Channel, are aware that their product is shaky.

History Channel in name only. As Lars said, they've really hut the skids. I really don't see how they can shut Selzer up though.

True, Cris.

What stood out immediately was the 'why'....why ask one of the contributors to not say anything negative about the series ? Bad cook can't lick his own fingers, or so its said.

Just for the record I was approached by the production company when thy were planning this series with a view to taking part. It was clear they were looking for someone to go on record and corroborate what Jeff Mudgett was suggesting. They sent me over lots of material much of which was from Jeff Mudgett setting out why he believed HH Holmes could have been JTR.

I sent them back a list negating all those main points Mudgett was using to support his claim that HH Holmes was the Ripper, and would you believe I never heard anymore. It would seem that they have found others willing to support Mudgetts belief

Episode One Devil In The Detail
http://vidzi.tv/nvzdjgi16lgx.html

Hope it works for you....


The two ( the CIA 'operative' and Mudgett ) do their best to look surprised at the apparent absence of any evidence that Holmes was not in Chicago during the period of post July 4, 1888 and April of 1889.

Well....there is evidence and its in Adam Selzer's book and in H.H. Holmes manbag.

Holmes must have been in town after August 31st, 1888 for his daughter to have been born on the 4th of July 1889. There's other evidence too. All in Adam's book.

Seems Mudgett's investigator, Ms Fox, has quite a checkered past. Don't have the link right now, but a YouTube video of an Aljazeera interview last year caused quite a stir.

The link above contains a criticism of Fox's comments Cris Malone referred to.
Worth a read....
