Whitey Bulger Documentary on CNN Sept 18 & 20

Unread postby shadowydog » Thu Sep 11, 2014 11:22 am

A 2-hour documentary on Whitey Bulger will air on CNN Thursday, September 18. It will air at 9 PM on the east coast and 6 PM on the west coast. It looks like it will interview many of the people involved at the time. Don't know if anyone has seen this before; but, those who haven't seen it might like to watch it or record it.

Is it the one called 'Whitey"? The one directed by Joe Berlinger? (He was the one who made the West Memphis 3 documentaries - Paradise Lost) If so, I saw it in theatres and it was very good, very informative but still entertaining, but almost, in my opinion anyways, slightly skewed towards Bulger and trying to prove he wasn't an FBI informant.

Yes it is. I thought it had been shown somewhere before, but thought maybe people in here didn't have a chance to see it and might want to watch it.

Mucho Thanks, Shadowydog, for alerting us to this. :bouquet:

I don't think it has been shown anywhere on TV except in some theaters. I bought it on Amazon to watch online, but haven't gotten around to doing that yet. Shoot.....I could have just waited for CNN.

I'll be watching, as long as I don't forget.

Thanks, Shadowydog, for the reminder.

I'm going to try to change the title to get the attention of other Zoners.

I'm watching the program right now, and it's very interesting...and rather disturbing, too...

They've shown a lot of images of Bulger, and it's rather jolting. Johnny got Bulger's look down to a tee...eerily so.

I am more fascinated about the callous indifference of the government FBI agents brought out in this trial.

It was not exactly what I was expecting. But it kind of fills in some missing pieces.

The Berlinger documentary "Whitey" is now available on my Netflix streaming service. So if anyone here has not seen it yet and has Netflix, check it out.

Thanks, Nebraska, for the heads up. It was a decent documentary and worth seeing.
