Dateline hype

Some agent got Chris Hanson to write a book -- everybody gets to cash in. He was on the Daly Show to promote it.

Early in the interview he said that about half the bad guys have gone through the court system and the other half are still pending. Of those who've gone through the court system, all have either plead guilty or were convicted he said.

Then later in the interview he mentions one was found not guilty.

124 out of 125 is a high conviction rate (although I'm guessing those were the easy convictions, the 125 left might not be so easy). But why misrepresent it. Why say "all" when that's simply not true.

I just don't trust Dateline.
