Tonight’s CBS TV Movie is a two-hour Lifetime-style waste of time on the BTK killer. Besides being the usual brain-addled damsel-in-distress “movie of the week” crap, this movie is exactly what the BTK killer wanted.
BTK wanted fame–even wrote notes to police and the press asking what he needed to do to get noticed, to get more publicity. He craved this notoriety, and tortured and murdered ten innocent women to attain it. By doing this two-hour movie, CBS is playing right into his hands–rewarding this cretin on network prime-time. And making some greedy, callous Hollywood producers even more wealthy.
Unlike CBS, we won’t repeat BTK’s real name or post his picture here. That’s what he wants.
Hopefully, and likely, it will be tape-delayed by NFL football and trounced by “Desperate Housewives” in the ratings.
CBS . . . the network that rewards serial killers.
