Every so often, my curiosity gets the better of me and I venture out on the Internet to take the pulse of Black Dahlia theories.
On Tuesday, for example, I strolled over to rollingstone.com to see what it said about the Black Dahlia case and “I Am the Night.” The newly released trailer for the upcoming mini-series (“inspired by a true story!”) made my head explode and now that I’ve recovered I can see that Rolling Stone doesn’t bother with editors. See “Faith Hodel” for “Fauna Hodel” (now fixed) and “Elizabeth Smart” for “Elizabeth Short.” Reporter Daniel Kreps clearly doesn’t believe in checking names, nor does anybody else at Rolling Stone.
So I decided to venture into Reddit.
Wow! The first entry is so crazy I’m not even going to link to it
This is from WestworldFan73, who did his research on “Wikipedia and whatnot”: Elizabeth Short was killed by John St. John? One of the most respected and famous detectives in the LAPD?
Seriously? Based on “Wikipedia and whatnot?”
I could go on, but my head just exploded again.
