Phantom Killer - in Media

In Media

In 1976, American International Pictures released The Town That Dreaded Sundown, a film inspired by the Phantom killings.

In May 2002, Dallas, Texas-based television station KDFW aired a lengthy report about the Phantom Killer. It names Swinney as the enduring primary suspect but also offers a complication in the case: Over the years, relatives of murder victims have received anonymous calls from a woman apologizing for what she said her father had done. As far as anyone can determine, Youell Swinney never had a daughter.

Jan Buttram's play Phantom Killer, based on the Texarkana incidents, opened at the Abingdon Theatre in New York City in January 2010.

Famous quotes containing the word media:

    The corporate grip on opinion in the United States is one of the wonders of the Western World. No First World country has ever managed to eliminate so entirely from its media all objectivity—much less dissent.
    Gore Vidal (b. 1925)

    Few white citizens are acquainted with blacks other than those projected by the media and the so—called educational system, which is nothing more than a system of rewards and punishments based upon one’s ability to pledge loyalty oaths to Anglo culture. The media and the “educational system” are the prime sources of racism in the United States.
    Ishmael Reed (b. 1938)
