Today I’m posting an interview done  by Slate Magazine with Peter Neufeld, the co-founder of project innocence.  It’s an amazing read.

The main stream regularly writes off people like Mr. Neufeld and project innocence as “village idiots” unless and until the system turns on them.  The main theme that runs throughout his interview, although they don’t say it in these terms, is confirmation bias — where the police grab onto a theory and won’t let the facts get in the way.
