In 1983, Paladin Press, a fringe publisher, released a book called Hit Man: A Technical Manual for Independent Contractors. The author, who went by the pen name Rex Feral, offered very specific tips for the aspiring contract killer— where to find employment, how much to charge...and how to get away with murder. Ten years later, Tiffani Horn’s mother, 8-year-old brother, and a close family friend were found murdered. The exhaustive investigation involved multi-state surveillance and wiretaps, but it wasn’t until detectives stumbled upon Hit Man that they suddenly had what they called a blueprint for the murders. Hosted by journalist Jasmyn Morris.

Well, so much for unbiased journalism... The “Journalist” is clearly biased and appears to not be a fan of First Amendment freedoms, unless it affects her. The murders were happening, with, or without the book. This podcast is a clear bait and switch. I was looking forward to learning more about the actual story and this poor family, here. Instead, it’s a naive, SJW-tinted, anti Bill of Rights opinion piece. What a shame. This could’ve been great. She could have made a career on this. She could have approached with humility and focused on the family. Instead, she settled for mediocre journalistic standards and is now a tiny fish, in a giant ocean of biased media.
