Is exposure to disturbing content taking its toll on TV producers?

From hate groups to real-life killers, television producers and researchers have to navigate frequent exposure to some truly disturbing content. Is it time to start talking about mental health?

Last fall, Matt Goerzen began dedicating eight hours a day, five days a week, to tracking down internet trolls, security researchers, media manipulators and hackers.

An associate producer and researcher for Viceland’s Cyberwar, Goerzen is tasked with investigating the dark ecosystem of cyberwarfare. Since joining the network, he’s pursued stories on tech developed to surveil activist communities, memetic warfare and malware that recruits unwitting devices for DDoS (distributed denial of service) attacks.

It’s a bleak, if fascinating, landscape to spend any amount of time in. For the episode on memetic warfare, the Cyberwar team closely perused white supremacist websites. The anti-immigrant Soldiers of Odin – classified as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center in 2016 — is another community

‘The most evil murderer Ireland has ever known’ – US TV recreates Graham Dwyer murder case

A US TV broadcaster has recreated the murder of Elaine O’Hara by Graham Dwyer and the subsequent murder investigation for a true-crime docudrama.

The programme is titled ‘Yes, Master’ and is part of the Married With Secrets series on the Investigation Discovery channel.

Dublin architect Dwyer was found guilty of stabbing the childcare worker to death in August 2012.

Elaine O’Hara’s remains were not found until over a year after the murder and Dwyer was subsequently convicted in 2015.

The programme tells the audience that it was assumed the victim had taken her own life and that the conviction came about because of a combination of luck and dogged police work.

It also details how Dwyer manipulated his vulnerable victim during their secret relationship before he lured her to the spot where he murdered her.

Keshet International Commits to True Crime

NEW YORK: Anke Stoll, the director of acquisitions and co-productions at Keshet International, talks to TV Real about the company’s partnership with Woodcut Media for true-crime programming.

Last year, Keshet International (KI) inked a first-look distribution and development deal with U.K.-based production company Woodcut Media. The agreement gives KI—best known for having scripted and entertainment series and formats—exclusive access to Woodcut’s new factual crime slate for global distribution. The pact allows KI to expand its catalog of non-scripted, English-language content.

***Image***“We are now moving heavily into third-party acquisitions across all genres to increase our portfolio of high-quality finished tape,” says Anke Stoll, the director of acquisitions and co-productions at Keshet International. “In the factual sphere, we wanted to concentrate initially on internationally successful sub-genres with an avid following—such as true crime—and then widen the catalog to include other topics.”

Stoll continues: “Woodcut Media is one of the best producers

WATCH: Sessions Says He Didn’t Communicate With Russians

Attorney General Jeff Sessions told the Senate Judiciary Committee during his confirmation hearing that he “did not have communications with the Russians” during Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.

You can watch the video above. Session’s remark – made under oath – comes at the end of the video in response to a question from Sen. Al Franken. The Washington Post is now reporting that, according to the Department of Justice, Sessions, as a Republican senator “spoke twice last year with Russia’s ambassador to the United States.” The New York Daily News reports “Sessions was a senior member of the Armed Services Committee and serving as a top foreign political adviser to the Trump campaign at the time.”
