Punking The Media
Originally broadcast June 18, 2012. Prankster Alan Abel has been playing tricks on journalists for five decades. The New York Daily News calls him, “The greatest hoaxer of our time.” He is the subject of the award winning documentary “Abel Raises Cain” recounting a lifetime of preying on the sloppiness and downright laziness of American media. Then Eddie Pepitone tells us about how he lost his virginity to his college professor. And we kick around an idea for a movie. With Paul Dooley, Frank Conniff, Jimmy Dore, Stefane Zamorano, Jeremy S. Kramer, Dylan Brody and David Weiss.
