Unsolved murders are like catnip for true-crime junkies. Limited information drip-fed over a number of hours has proved the perfect formula for hit series like Making A Murderer and Casting JonBenet.

‘Fire and Fury’ proves an often-forgotten rule: Don’t assume ‘we’re off the record’

Michael Wolff says he didn’t exactly trick President Trump while he was researching his scathing overnight bestseller, “Fire and Fury.”

“Whether he realized it was an interview or not, I don’t know, but it certainly was not off the record,” Wolff said Friday on NBC’s “Today” show, describing his conversation with Trump, who claims he gave the infamous author “zero access.”

As to whether he misled anyone about what he was doing hanging around the West Wing, Wolff’s words may go down in journalism history: “I said whatever was necessary to get the story.”

Wolff, of course, has a reputation for “busting embargoes and burning sources by putting off-the-record comments on the record,” as one assessment put it.

Even so, even people who should know better about spilling their guts to a reporter often don’t.

‘Forgotten’ woman’s tragic story matters

………. ………. ………. ………. ………. ………. ………. ………. ………. ………. ………. ………. ………. ………. ………. ………. ………. ……….

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A film crew for one of those ubiquitous true crime shows was in town last week shooting an episode about a local murder case and needed to interview the journalist who covered the case.

They couldn’t find one.

Although Verenanda Flores, 24, had lived among us in Albuquerque, it was as if she had never existed here, her disappearance days before Christmas 2014 receiving little public notice save for a quick mention on TV news, a spot on Spanish radio, a notice from Albuquerque Crime Stoppers and an article in the Las Vegas (N.M.) Optic, her family’s hometown newspaper, nearly two months after her disappearance.

That her death went so unnoticed made her ending seem all the more sad.

But she had mattered.

Gone: The Forgotten Women Of Ohio · Season 1 · TV Review Spike …

One of the things that’s so appealing about true crime is that the narrative attraction comes ready-made, no heavy lifting required. Something dramatic has already occurred, and it happened right here in the real world. There’s a victim, an aggressor, the vicarious adrenaline rush of the salacious details, and the knowledge that, unlike fictional crime, nothing is too random, bizarre, or outlandish—everything is pre-justified in advance by the knowledge that it all really happened.

Director Joe Berlinger presumably knows all this by heart. The director of the landmark Paradise Lost trilogy of films about the West Memphis Three, as well as numerous other documentaries (Whitey: United States Of America V. James J. Bulger, Metallica: Some Kind Of Monster) and TV docuseries, has an uncanny knack for both cracking open sprawling, messy true-life narratives, as well as finding surprises and complications in stories that appear open-and-shut on first glance.
